I have a question for the men. I keep hearing two things over and over from other women: 1) I'd look cuter with shorter hair; and 2) When I reach middle age, I should absolutely cut my hair, because older women look ridiculous with long hair. I have sufficient evidence to know #1 is a lie. However, I want to know if you think older women -- even women in their 60s and 70s -- look better with long hair. Assuming it's healthy-looking, that is.Since you know they're lying about (1), why would you assume that they are telling the truth about (2)? Yes, older women with grey, silver, or white hair look much better with long hair; the least sexual being on the planet is a fat, pyramid-shaped, 50-something she-thing with a fluffy purple perm topping a close-cropped back-and-sides. Now THAT'S ridiculous. It is also grotesque. But to prove the point, compare the picture of the Hollywood actress on the left with the picture of the woman below, who, judging by her hands, appears to be even older. Who looks more attractive? More importantly, who looks more like a woman?
All that cropping one's hair short does is make an older woman look even older, harsher, and more mannish.
