    All women of about 50+ seem to have short hair! I've only just started noticing this and it's driving me crazy. Once you start noticing, you can't stop. Any explanation as to why? The only thing I can come up with is that they're all part of a cult.
    Anybody else noticed this, or am I insane?

    I've noticed this too!

    I guess they're not bothered after a certain age? :dontknow:

    Easier to maintain for them and at that age there is nobody to impress.

    Easier to look after when your hair is old, thin and damaged from a lifetime of stuff happening to it?

    Hair turns grey and brittle with age. Permanent colouring and chemicals all take a toll.

    Long grey frazzled hair looks a lot worse than shorter well kept and styled hair.

    I just think it's weird that you never see any older women with long hair, does it just not suit them?

    I know a few women 50 plus who have long /mid-length hair, but yes the majority do seem to have short hair. As another poster suggested maybe they find it easier to manage?

    Arthritis makes it difficult to look after long hair
