straight or wavy long hair for the woman over 40

What can I say, I am a fan of long hair and will stay with it for as long as I can get away with it. But the funny thing is that I have naturally curly hair and as a result, spend my entire youth trying to run away from the curls and the waves without much success. However, in the last decade or so, I have been able to straighten my hair thanks to all the tools available to make it work successfully.

But now, everywhere I turn,  women in my age group with long hair are going wavy or curly once again and I am fighting with myself to make the switch, because although I can do it naturally, I feel better with my straight hair.

So, I am throwing this entry out there to all the women who are in the same boat as me. Let me know where you are with today’s “hair style pressures”.


  1. I think you should wear whatever makes you feel better! We all have a personal preference. I prefer curls & waves, myself, and think I look older when my hair is straightened (because it drags down my features). But I expect that depends on face shape, etc.

    One factor to consider is that heat styling can cause damage. So whatever you do, figure out how to protect your hair! One advantage of going with the waves is that you can sometimes avoid heat styling. (Check out Naturallycurly.com for tips!)

    But honestly, if YOU prefer it straight, you should wear it that way. No matter what anybody says! There’s a lot of pressure out there to straighten, too, and I just ignore it. Why try a trend you don’t like?
