    Humpf! And I grew mine out at age 38, and I love it. When I took up Belly Dancing at age 40, I had long hair to swirl about!

    Whenever I picture myself as woman in her 70s and 80s it's always with waist length grey hair, wearing strings of beads and a hemp t-shirt. I think it is because I grew up thinking there was some kind of law that older women had to have short, short hair and be ultra conservative. I was born a hippie, I'm at uni to become a professional hippie, and I'll die a hippie!

    I had very short hair as a teenager, and I still love that old spunky hair style. I decided to grow it once I started dancing, and I plan on getting it very long. I love the femininity of a woman with long hair ( I also love long hair and beards on a man - so now my partner's mum gets annoyed with me for not getting my man to trim his beard or get a haircut ).

    Plus, people in the past have described me as 'masculine'...not due to my appearance, I think(!) but because I am strong, opinionated, confident, and assertive, usually. I'm not saying that those are 'masculine' traits, of course, but there are some people out there that make that association. I like having long hair, because it means I don't fit into their stereotyped box as well.

    I still sometimes want to ask a woman with a fantastic, short and spunky hair style who her hairstylist is!!

    Yes, I've noticed my husband getting a little irritated lately in bed. We cuddle spoon-style, and since it's been so hot, we keep a fan running at night, which causes my ultra-wild, curly-frizzy hair to blow up his nose... But I think he likes my hair long. I cut my own hair ultra-short in my late 30's, and it was fun for a while, but it was waaay too high-maintenance to keep up with. My hair grows fast, so in less than two weeks, a cute sassy 'do starts looking bushy. Plus, I missed my long hair, so I grew it back out.

    I love Garnier Fructis' line of hair-care products; they protect my hair well, and makes it smell nice.

    Ah, you know what they say: Men grow more conservative with age, women more outrageous. Or something like that.

    The spousal unit (I say affectionately) has pleaded for me to keep the mane waist-length, and let it go grey, too. So I find myself checking out other women who are going fabulously grey and noting what I like about how they're wearing their hair. No blue-tinted poodle cuts for moi!

    I have a vision of myself swirling around with a sword poised on my long white mane!

    My own spousal unit thinks the sexiest thing on earth is an older woman with streaks of gray in her long hair. My hair is long but has no gray in it despite my over the hill place in life. D'ya suppose my hairdresser would faint if I asked him to streak my hair with gray?
