  • They say over and over that shoulder length hair makes you look the most put-together and young. Anything too long drags the face down. Anything too short can age you.

  • Tell that to some of the celebrities that are over 40! A lot of them have long hair and still look amazing, like Goldie Hawn, Meryl Streep, Sandra Bullock, Demi Moore, etc etc!!

  • Wear what you want and ignore the opinions of others. My hair is usually below shoulder length and I'm twice your age! I don't wear it down a lot, mostly in a ponytail or bun to keep it off my neck. You should do what you feel comfortable with.

  • my hair is down to the middle of my back and I am 38. With this long hair everyone thinks I am in my 20's. When my hair was shorter I felt older. Shorter hair IMO is for someone in their late 50's and 60's but even then it doesn't have to be too short either. Many older woman can pull of longer hair as they get older. Grow it out you are still very young.

  • I'm 35 and a about 3 years ago - I cut my hair short (like a bob). I'm now growing it out again.

    You're still young - wear your hair however you think it looks best!
