    Why are they all short hairstyles?!?

  2. Susan says:

    I agree with Cherryl. Why are they all short hairstyles? I like long hair. It is much easier to care for and easy to deal with each day. I can’t imagine using a curling iron on it though as it is so thick. Please try to post some long hair styles too for this age group.

  3. Nancy says:

    20 hairstyles? haha! That’s two hairstyles – pixie and bob – on 20 women. Cherryl and Susan are right. Where’s medium / shoulder length and long hair? NOT just for 20-year-olds. Jane Seymour, Michelle Pfeifer, Heather Locklear, Andy McDowell, Jaclyn Smith…

  4. Dee says:

    The reason that only short hairstyles are shown, is because the title of the article is, “Updos for short styles”.

  5. Terrie says:

    They only show short, because that is the most flattering on older women. There are some exceptions, but they are few. Long hair draws the face down. Gravity is our enemy. I love long hair too. Have tried it many times as I’ve gotten older, but every time I cut it off, everyone says, “Wow! you look so much with short hair”. Let it go. You’re not twenty anymore. Embrace your age.
