We’ve all heard the theory that a woman of a certain age should never wear long hair. It might not be an age appropriate hairstyle for them. The truth is that in today’s world age is little more than a number and should have nothing to do with a person’s sense of style. Just look at a few of these ladies, as an example: Elizabeth Hurley, Stevie Nicks, Susan Sarandon, Valerie Bertinelli or Bernadette Peters. To name just a few!
No one can look at these women and say that they shouldn’t wear their hair long. In fact, these women could wear pretty much any hairstyle they choose. Their age doesn’t matter, their hair is healthy, the color vibrant, the styles are flattering. What more does anyone want from their hair.
So you may be asking what makes the rules different now? The answer is simple. Half a century ago, a woman in her 50s or 60s looked very different than women of similar age look today. They didn’t have the medical and cosmetic techniques we now have that help to preserve health and youthful vigor.
The bottom line: age is no longer a reason to limit your choices in hairstyle. Any woman, of any age, can have long hair that is healthy, vibrant, and strong. So go ahead and let those youthful locks flow regardless of what the calendar says.
