    That’s exactly what I’m doing, Kari! I had a shorter, asymmetric bob and decided it was a little TOO edgy for me at age 52. So I’m growing it out a bit, and it’s almost reached “lob” status. My stylist says my hair is extremely healthy and full, so why not? (and I wouldn’t go back to my 20′s if you PAID me a million dollars!!!)

    I agree completely..ombre is over and I love rich browns with touches of gold or red for our age group or golden honey blonde..the softer the better:)
    Have a great weekend!

    I know a few women who have worn short hair forever it seems, in various styles and colours and it still looks great on them. If you have a great stylist/colourist who works with the structure of your face and skin tone, you will always look your best.

    For a few years now, I have worn mine short as well and am keeping to variations of bleached, sometimes cool, sometimes warmer etc…and I always get compliments. I’m a a big believer in do what works for you and get got up in what the masses are doing. You can’t go wrong at the hands of a great stylist & colourist…I’ve seen some women walk out of high end salons with terrible cuts & colours and some look fantastic….it’s all about the stylist/colourist who truly has a good eye for the individual client.

    correction – I’m a big believer in do what works for you and DON’T get caught up in what the masses are doing.

    I LOVE Charlize Theron’s cut and color;I think that’s what I will do this summer.

    I also love Charlize Theron’s cut but I’m wondering what styling tool she is using to get those beachy waves?

    I just stumbled across your blog and I LOVE it!

    One month ago, I cut 11″ off my hair as I was feeling like I was looking like one of the “Real Housewives” – NJ, Beverly Hills, OC … you take your pick. I felt my long hair was aging me.

    I took to the salon, the photo you posted of Jennifer Aniston. I would say, I ended up with a cut that’s pretty close. I have very thick hair.

    While it’s taken me a little time to get used to, I will say I’ve never received so many compliments – mainly from strangers. My husband likes it much better and my bestie said it took 10 years off. I’ll take it!

    I wish more women would cut their long locks off and go for something that softens their face and makes them look younger.

    Thank you for this post. It makes me feel better about my decision (women get so attached to their hair).

    By the way, I love the make-up page you posted. I am headed to Nordstrom and Sephora this afternoon! :)
