Why do ladies cut their hair so short as they age?


I've noticed I almost never see a woman over 60 with long hair, even when they look like they are in great shape and wouldn't have trouble keeping it up. Why is this? Is this the average or just what I have been seeing?

    Thanks, I had no idea that grey could come out a different texture.

    MzB...I watch for the sale ads w/ $$-off coupons from the "walk-in" salons like Fantastic Sams, etal. Also most of them give a Sen Cit disc Between the disc & coupon it ends up costing about $8.00 shampoo & cut/blow dry!! :)

    You look great in long hair in your photo, Sparklea. I wouldn't advise you to cut it either, but if you saw me in long hair... Even my 5th grade school pic with shoulder-length hair screams "cut, cut!"

    When I see a woman OBVIOUSLY (visibly) mid to late 40's or older, in a mini skirt 12 lbs of makeup, false lashes,nails & gawdy jewelry ..I have to silently smile. My Dad would always say, "Give her a break, she's trying to make a come-back." LOL!
