Should a Woman Over 40 Have Long Hair?

women long hairMy sister (seen at right) and I both have long hair. We're not 40 just yet, but I honestly cannot see either of us cutting our locks short once we get there.

I don't think I have the face for short hair, though I do love all kinds of hairstyles. My mom has short hair and she's super stylish.

I know for most moms, long hair gets in the way especially when the kids are little.


Tennessee (seen in photo) loves to grab long hair in her tiny hands and pull. She's quite strong, too. Ouch!

Which is why long hair moms often pull it back to get it out of the way...and far from wandering hands.

CafeMom reasons4health asked if a mom should have long hair after 40. The last time I checked:

  • 43 percent said yes
  • 54 percent said it depends on the style
  • 2 percent said no

What do you think? Should a mom have long hair after 40?
