    Do you think there is an age where women become too old to have long hair?

    No. I think anyone should do whatever they like with their hair, no matter what the age.

      My hair is still long, and I am 43, however I do see women who are in their 50's plus who seem to begin to look a bit 'witch-like' because they have long hair (especially if it goes grey) and I honestly think shorter hair would be far more flattering

      I'm 57 years old, my hair is the longest it's ever been. It is almost down to my waist. I don't know if I look like a witch, but so far my hair is not gray. Sometimes I pin it up, sometimes I leave it down.

    It really depends on the culture and lifestyle of that woman. There are those who have absolutely beautiful hair that is traditionally grown very long. I believe a woman should wear her hair as she so desires. I do know some women who have had very long hair and have had it cut and styled for their profession and look absolutely stunning and years younger. But it is also what they have chosen. Great question Misty!

      Thanks Rusticliving, I still wear my hair long but would hate the idea that I got to the 'mutton dressed as lamb' stage through having long and somewhat greying hair (which will no doubt happen in the next 5 year plus). How it is worn no doubt helps.

    No, as long as it is clean - any length on any woman is fine with me. I like mine longer because I had fussing with hair so I can pull it back in a pony tail and not worry about it.  And I am "older."

      I think on women over 'a certain age' long hair looks okay so long as it is worn pinned up e.g. in a bun, French Plait or similar. When it is just long and 'hanging' is when it can look witch-like (especially if grey).

      I'm 57 and my hair is longer than it's ever been; almost to my waist. It's not gray yet though.

    I have long hair and I'm much older than most people who do.  The people who seem to care the most are other woman in my age range who all have the uniform shorter hair styles, or women who are still in the dating market who somehow think I'm trying to be sexy.  LOL!   

    I have long hair because it is what I like.  It makes me feel good about myself. On special occasions I have many more options than those with shorter hair.  Worrying about what others think is not something I'm keen on. 

    I know so many woman who would look better with longer hair, but who take the much easier way out and wear it short.  Many woman look dowdy to me with short hair.  It is all about preference.

    I will have long hair until I die just like one of my mother's aunts. Her hair was just past the small of her back, a perfect mix of a bit of salt with pepper, shiny, clean, and absolutely beautiful.
