After a certain age, do I have to cut my hair short?
Girl, you do you! If you haven't picked up on it yet, I don't like to follow 'rules' or what I'm 'supposed' to do. I feel if you like your hair long, then let's keep it, your the one that is wearing it! But let's definitely give it a shape and style. The key to being able to keep your hair longer is to keep it full and healthy looking. In my opinion, healthy hair, is gorgeous hair. This whole thing about having to cut your hair is that it may be dragging you down. Here's the thing, a good style and cut can help that. Even a few highlights to give you a little pop. Now, if your hair looks like your holding on to scraps at the bottom, then you need to get cleaned up. That's not a good look for anyone. My mom is in her late 50's and she likes to keep her hair long. And it was getting to a point it wasn't as full as it once was. So I put extensions in her hair, actually for my wedding. I got married five years ago and she hasn't gone a day without them since and let me tell you, my mama rocks that long hair, but it is full from the extensions, healthy and always styled.
