Does long hair on older women look sexy or silly? Christopher Hopkins, “The Makeover Guy” has it right when he says it’s really not about age.
“It’s a combination of how young you appear, hair quality, and whether longer hair looks good on you at all, regardless of age.
If you’ve never looked good in long hair, you likely never will. But if you’ve always had long hair and it’s still holding out pretty well, meaning it’s thick and shiny and can be worn without a lot of what looks like work, then likely you can still wear it well.”
So true! Nothing worse than seeing a gal with scraggly long hair, trying to hang onto her youth by wearing long hair just for the sake of long hair. On the other hand, I can think of a handful of women and plenty of celebs over 40 who look stunning with long hair. Long hair can look sexy, but be forewarned. You need lots of time and money for all the super high maintenance involved. Just look at the celebs who are LONG on style!
No, Meryl would probably look better shorter! Didn’t she look great in The Devil wears Prada?
