We caught sight of Demi Moore at the GEMS Girls Like Us benefit and we just had to comment. Her dress, though beautiful, wasn’t scandalous. Her makeup was natural-looking and appropriate. But that hair! Moore turns 50 this November and she’s rocking (and we mean rocking) hair that’s long down to the end of her ribcage—and it’s incredible. Not only does it shine and look incredibly healthy, but the loose, feminine waves work wonders for her classic square-shaped face.
So we started wondering: why do so many middle-aged women feel obligated to cut their long hair after a certain age? Moore has got to be the quintessential example of what great hair over 40 (and almost 50!) can look like. Why is it perceived as inappropriate for women to continue to grow their hair out as they age?
You tell us: Did you ever have long hair and feel obligated to cut it because of your age?
