The Long And Short Of It

"Celebrity hairdresser" Richard Ward asks a burning question over at British tab The Sun: How old is too old for long hair? The old standard used to be that long hair over the age of 40 was gauche. But Ward says you can do long locks into middle age as long as it's "done right." Ward says Madonna and Liz Hurley are two 40-something women who look good with longish hair, while Jerry Hall gets it wrong because "her high forehead means a fringe would be more flattering. Her hair isn't in good enough nick to wear long - the straggly look doesn't work on over 30s." Ooooh BURN. What about for non-celebrities who don't have professional weaveologists at their beck and call? Is 40 too old for Rapunzel locks? [The Sun]
