It’s commendable seeing grandmas and senior citizens in their short, smart, classy modern looking hair cut. Perhaps, they have enjoyed their straight long black hair or sexy curls back in their younger years giving them a valid reason to chop it off when they reach a certain point of age. Fair enough. I adore women who know the term “age-appropriate” in terms of dressing up and chopping off their hair.
I follow the rule of thumb that as you get older your hair should get shorter. Finding a look that is both elegant and fashionable can be tough. Remember, hairstyle that suited us in our twenties may not necessarily work in our fifties up. I must admit, I always manage to have long hair, simply because that look fits me. But I am not afraid of chopping it off. In fact, in my early 30’s I was a short-haired newbie momma, I mean really short and I enjoy having new look as always.
Remember, when it comes to looking 10 years older, or younger than our actual age, it is our hair that makes all the difference.
As we get older, maintaining long hair becomes more and more of a task. In fact, a recent survey was able to determine the exact age that women come to a hair breaking point: 46. As for me, I think that age is quite bearable to maintain long hair if you still wish. You can even look sexy, though. But PLEASE, if you reach your SENIOR YEAR, you have to work out just what to do with your hair. You’ve got some big decisions to make.
Here are some important snippets you need to consider to sport short hair:
- Give justice to your look. Your haircut, style, or color may not be doing you any favors in the fountain of youth.
- End the fight against grey. This becomes a big problem around for many elder women. Keep in mind too that our hair can be thinner at the same time more coarse as we age.
- It will make your life easier and manageable. Achieve a wash and wear /style and go look. It dries up in an instant, it styled with just a few touches.
- You will save more money. Let’s face it, you have the right to enjoy your retirement pay but not spending it too much in a salon. If you have long hair, and you want to color or highlight it, or you need deep conditioning, expect to pay two or three times as much as someone with short hair
You never know, by considering these points you may look younger than your actual age, as mentioned previously. Try it grandmas. Anyway, it will grow back just the way you want it.
60-ish? I am just wondering, what made you decide to manage long hair where you should be enjoying the “wash and wear” and a stress-free look ? What do you think is the best reason to keep it long? Let’s get a discussion going in the comments.
