|Louise and Judy before the braid. We only had to take a gazillion photos before we both approved this one.|
At art class tonight, Judy and I realized that we both had the same fantasy: to have long hair--long enough to have a braid down the back. "I've never had long hair before," she said.
"Neither have I," I said. "Let's do it. Let's grow our hair long."
"Let's do it!" Judy said.
Kathryn Romney said, "It won't work." The voice of experience.
There are multiple arguments about whether older women should wear long hair after fifty on the internet, but there's no consensus. We live in a "do what you want" age. But there were some tips
for wearing long hair: use conditioner as well as shampoo. Have a good cut every few months to keep ends looking healthy. Most people like the blow dried, natural look with a bit of back-combing at the top of the head.
What I learned from seeing my photo: don't cut your own bangs!
|I like the long hair on this woman (and the sunglasses(|
|I don't see much of this look at church.|
|Well, there's gray hair, but she doesn't look all that old to me.|
|This is a bit ambitious for me.|
I can do it. Judy can do it. We want it. We want it badly.
