Wow Des, that photo is lovely.
Your story of the older ladies reminds me of something my Grandmother said to me when I a younger woman. She said the reason women of a " certain"
age should cut their hair short is that "longer hair on an older woman shows a lack of self respect. How will others respect you if you don't know
enough about what it means to be lady like."
I suppose this is one of things that brings me to ATS, the idea that the cut of my hair has nothing to do with the workings of my mind.
LOL...so cutting my hair and dying it light poodle blue, will make me a self respecting Lady. Our Grannies were much alike I think.
No thanks...I'll keep my long hair, to uphold my witchy reputation. I do make and wear lady like hats with my hair pulled up sometimes. Here is a
pic of me in one of my Haute Couture tin foil creations in honor of last years' ATS tin foil hat contest. Hair pulled up in pony tail for this
My old Granny had the short white hair too....I asked her why she cut it all off one time. She said "I'm done with men at my age. Don't need no
long hair to keep 'em happy"...
I wonder if there are a larger percentage of long haired women, in all age groups, on ATS.
I guess we all have our reasons for liking our long hair. I'd feel naked without it.
