I will be 50 on May 8th. I have never had short hair. This picture is with my son at his best friend’s wedding. I’m thinking about going longer for my 50’s debut. What do you think? Cindy Ramirez
Wow…you look FAB, Cindy!
I wanted to make sure you got the best advice available so I sent your letter and photo to my friend, celebrity hair guru, Billie Lowe . Here is what he said:
I think you look fabulous at 50 and I love it when women are confident enough to wear longer tresses.I do, however, think a shoulder length cut (maybe a tad longer) would be perfect on you.
When I saw your photo, my first glance caught your hair at the right shoulder area and I missed the tresses at the back. I immediately thought that shoulder length look would be perfect for you, yet still give you some length to play with.
Find a great stylist and one that knows your hair type and can work with you on this journey. Longer hair? Not so sure. But 3-4 inches off to start would be a fun look for you. You can always take more off later, but start with a few inches for now and see how you like it.
Best of luck and send us updated photos! Billy Lowe, www.billylowe.com
Good luck Cindy… and have a great Birthday!! ~Deborah.
*One note growing your hair can sometimes make you look younger. See what I mean. My reader sent in this photo.
