This is not a writing post.
Although that is also a good question.
This is a post about my hair.
My very sweet....ahem.....sister Judy offered to pay for me to get a haircut.
She often tells me that I need one and that it is far too long.
I kind of like my hair and its curly so I will not cut it short.
My reason for this is it always ends up looking like a helmet.
Truth be told I really do not care what my sister thinks or anyone else for that matter......
But it made me wonder.....how long is too long?
And am I too old (39) for long hair?
Exhibit A: Front view
Exhibit B: Side view
I don't think it looks bad.....maybe a little long but hair cuts are expensive!
I really think its all about whether you look good with long hair.
Is your hair nice and thick?
I think as you age and your hair gets thinner its probably a good idea to cut it.
Mine is not to that point yet.
I don't think I would keep my hair long if it was gray.
Although I don't think I will ever let my hair go gray......
So that's a non issue.
Is it fair to put an age on style?
I don't think women my age should wear mini skirts.
Maybe its because I have a daughter who will be turning 20 very soon and I certainly don't want to dress like her......well that's not completely true but certain clothes I think should be for the young.
So maybe this should apply to hair length as well?
I am not sure.
I really do not like to be told how I can and cannot wear my hair.
Sometimes this stubbornness blinds me to the truth.
Maybe I do need a haircut.
Maybe Judy is right.
Maybe I am too old for hair this long.
Or maybe she is just a giant pain in the ass big sister.
What do you think my fine friends.......how long is too long and how old is too old?
