    Tee hee! That was my first thought too....

    My hair is short, and not likely to grow long again - so I bought this awesome wig that is long and curly and blonde/red! Quite unlike my short, dark, fine and very curly hair! But if I was to dance with my short hair I have made some headpieces to decorate the hair, and I also have a clip-on ponytail in my natural hair colour.
    I would prefer to have long natural hair, but people say the most silly things when you're over 40 and have long hair...sigh...

    I still stress my opinion of long hair being better, but I am also not a female with long hair so I can not comment on many of the problems you may have.

    Just ignore those comments Adiemus! Ignore them! It's your hair and your decision if you want to let it grow.
    I had tailbone length hair when I just went to highschool. A lot of people on primary school liked my long hair, but there, suddenly my hair was boring and I needed a trendy hair cut and blah blah blah and people were even stepping on it! I waited until they stopped whining and then let it cut to bra strap length, so they would think it was my own decision.
    Now, I have someone who like my hair again so I want to get back to tailbone lenght

    By the way, you don't always have to let your hair hang loose when you're dancing. Something like a braid or something with a scarf can look very nice too.

    My hair is very long, too, and I love to wear it down when I dance. Most of the time I pull it back in front, but let it flow in back. My husband says it's another "veil"!

    Adiemus, I am over fifty and have waist length hair. Either I am surrounded by long hair loving folks or no one has the nerve to make negative comments to my face (I apparently get more intimidating as I get older). There are those who think I am an "old hippie" (a redundancy if there ever was one!), but there are worse things to be.

    I have worn my hair many different ways when I perform. For most of my adult life, it has been just below my shoulder blades (it has never grown any longer). I went to Spain a few years ago and saw a painting of a woman from the 1930's who had a chin length curly bob. It was fantastic, so when I got home, I had my hair styled that way. No one recognized me. They knew me by my admittedly beautiful long hair (I love my hair, sorry, no modesty here)
    I danced that way for a year, and at first, felt that it did not fit the image, but then, because the whole point was that it was a '30's do, I figured that American actresses from that era who played dancers wore their hair that way, and so I should just go with the flow, so to speak. My hair is now back to its original length, and if I am performing in a glamourous evening performance I wear it down. If I am outside and it is hot or windy, I style it up. Find something that is flattering on you and appropriate for the venue and you can't go wrong.

    PS I also just flat out love flipping my hair, and do it as much as possible I look for shampoos that smell good too. I love Timotei's copper radiance. My daughter says it smells like a cinnamon bun. But it is not available in the US, so I order it from the UK and use it only on special occasions. Blahdy, blah, blah.

    There are those that think one should not have long hair if one is over 35, but I just think that is silly. As my hair is growing I am loving my hair and I plan on keeping it, including when I round 40 and 50 and 60 and so on.

    Erin I have never head of that shampoo, you are saying that is is good?

    Venefica,
    Sorry it took me so long to respond. Busy weekend. Anyway, I am 44 and think you should wear your hair in such a way as is flattering to yourself. No matter how old you are. My mom has had short hair for as long as I have known her, and I can't imagine it any other way. She's tried to grow it out but it has a crazy natural curl that just does not work on long hair, nor does she look good with long hair, soooooooooooooo.... . I also know a few older women who have long hair that is very thin and they don't wash it often enough, then they wear it up in a bun on top of their heads, and it looks unattractive and greasy. bleah.

    It wasn't too many years (decades [maybe a century...]) ago that every woman had long hair for their whole entire life. So I say "pooh!" to people who think they should follow such silly rules!

    About the shampoo; my daughter travelled all over Europe a couple years ago, and it's one of the things that she brought home as a gift for me. I am not sure in what country she bought it, but since I liked it so much, I looked it up on the net, and found it at a place called the Brit Super Store. It makes my hair soft and shiny, and again it smells really good! The only problem, the shipping from Britain makes it really expensive. If you can find it where you are, it's actually not all that bad, cost-wise.

    Hi

    Shanazel sorry for disappearing. It varies how social I am and sometimes I just drop out of forums for a while. Sorry.

    Erin I to think pepole should wear their hair the way they like it and the way that look good on them. It have to be an individual choice.
