Staying on trend becomes tricky as we get older. I love the look of a cold shoulder sweater with ripped jeans, but how old is too old to pull it off? Never has this dilemma been so confusing as when it comes to the hair salon. There’s an old notion that long hair signifies youthfulness, so, older women should avoid it because it’s no longer appropriate for their age. That’s an old school way of thinking, and it can be disputed in modern times. Women over 40 can wear a variety of lengthy styles ranging from buns and braided updos to loose curls and waves.
