I hope I can put this into words correctly. Is it expected (by people in general) that as a woman ages, her hair should be shorter? Another way to say it is: Do people think that you are desparately trying to be youthful if you have longer hair when you are 50 Plus? I hope this is just a misconception I have as I would like to grow mine out to the shoulders or longer. Does this make sense at all? Does having longer hair as a mature woman imply that I'm in denial of my age?
