  • As you age your hair looses it's shine and health. It's easier to cut it than have it long, straggely and dull.

  • I think its because you always hear that having long hair when you are over a certain age just makes you look older.

  • I would say because they just don't care anymore.

  • because someone told them how to look I think you should look the way you want to.

  • Because it can get thinner, its easier to take care of. You usually need to get it colored and it isn't as expensive to get it done. Also who has the time to dry and fix your long hair every day when you are busy living it up and doing all the fun things you couldn't do when you were younger, raising your kids and running to all of their activities! I'm not 50 yet, but I'm loving my life right now.
