    I’ve almost never had long hair, so nope – will just be continuing on with the style I like!

    I said yes at a certain age, but definitely not 30. I was thinking more of 60+. You’re young, rock the long hair.

    I’m 33 and still have long hair.. My hair was past my bra line on my wedding day and I only took it up about 2 inches since then. 

    Keep it long for as long as it looks good.. when it starts to get thin and straggily looking, then I’d cut it.  That’s my plan. Wink

    I plan on keeping my long hair for a very long time (I’m currenlty 27). I maintain it by trimming it every 6-8 weeks, so it doesn’t look scraggly (it’s a little below my bra straps). Plus my face is square shaped, short hair is not a good look on me.  I cut my hair neck-shoulder length once, Fiance was not happy! He loves my long hair 🙂

    I didn’t know long hair was considered hoochie.

    i’ve been sporting short hair for quite a while now.  i love short hair on me.

    my mother on the other hand has long hair and i hate it on her.  she is in her 60’s.  she is very active and looks great for her age but seriously mom?  she wears it up all of the time so you really don’t see that it’s long.  i have tried for years to get her to cut it with no luck.  she totally needs a nice modern yet classic short style.

    I do think long hair makes me look younger? when I started my graduate program, I chopped it off because I was tired of looking like I’d just graduated high school.  I think I’ll grow it out again but I won’t let it get too long because I just end up looking unprofessional. 

    that said, I have seen older women totally ROCK long hair.  so I don’t think it’s a “rule” for everyone. (like all the “real housewives” women? I wish I had thick hair that I could curl and style so it could look mature while being long!)

    Never cut my hair because of age but rock your hair however you want to!

    I agree: short hair, long hair, if it makes you feel beautiful then wear your hair that way! If you think it doesn’t look chic, I think bobs are a great way for insta-chic: but at the same time, long hair can be quite beautiful! There are plenty of older women with beautiful long hair (and plenty of younger women with sad long hair): it just depends on the person!

    Sorry, I will never cut my hair. I don’t understand the post-wedding chop, or the “mommy chop,” or the age chop. I look stupid with short hair, though, so there’s that.

    I think I look ridiculous with hair shorter than my shoulders. Never cut!

    @vorpalette:  I’m with you on this one. I never understood milestone chops either.

    Also, I don’t think it’s appropraite to call long hair “hootchie hair”. Mine is very long, and I don’t associate it with looking like a hootchie momma.

    I have long hair because I have very thick hair. The length helps weigh it down so its not soo poofy and silly looking. Maybe one day when it gets thinner I can finally chop it off!

    Here is a good friend of mine. Note the length of her hair. I think she looks beautiful, especially for being 75 years old! Her hair is braided in the pic and it actually is half-way down her back!
