Have you ever heard...

Have you ever heard that a woman over the age of 35 should never have long hair because automatically makes her look older?

Someone had told me that before and I'm not sure if I believe it or not. I would think it would depend on face shape, condition of hair etc. 

But I'm wondering if that is why most of the women that I know older than 35 have short hair. Maybe it's just coincidence...

Weird, my mom tells me the same thing that long hair makes you look older. i just don't think short looks good on me.

mine is past my shoulders, I'm 43.  I never get told I look older than I am, just the opposite.

This was from so long ago and I believe the age is 40, not 35. I think its silly to lump all women of one age into any catagory like this. It depends on the person (how they have aged, face shape etc), not how old they are. There are so many women over the age 40 with long hair that look young. I've also seen were a shorter hair cut has made some look much older.

I have long hair and I am 40. I think short hair makes me look older, it doesn't suit me at all. I think it depends if your hair is in good condition. If you don't have nice hair it should be kept short, regardless of your age.

These women are all over 40... I don't think their hair ages them at all, or looks "desperate" or whateer is implied by women over 35 can't have long hair.

Vacation last summer, me with short hair.

Vacation this year, with long hair.  I'm 48 in both pictures, and wearing the same color yellow.  What do you think?  I am never cutting my hair short again.
