Can Older Women Pull Off Long Hair? featured image

Many people think that older women can’t get away with wearing long hair. Whatever your definition of “older” may be, just take a look at how lovely long hair is on women like Demi Moore, 47, Christie Brinkley, 56, and recent Oscar-winning director Kathryn Bigelow, 58-you’ll see this silly myth doesn’t hold water.

Getting older simply means it may be time to alter and modernize your cut and color.

“A slightly off-center part and longer layers through the back can make long hair more current and stylish,” according to celebrity hairstylist Frédéric Fekkai. “Then, paired with a deep, vibrant shade or simple highlights, the look is beautiful.”

Other over-45 celebrities that make long hair work: Courteney Cox, Julianne Moore, Goldie Hawn, Jane Seymour, and Teri Hatcher.
