Over 35 Does Not Mean “I Give Up”

I just saw an article on a popular magazine’s website full of before/afters on changing one’s hairstyle to “look younger.” I’m not linking you to it because all the “afters” were awful! They were plain, frumpy, homogenized, and sexless. Why must women’s beauty media do this to other women? Why must women be encouraged to cast off their vibrancy once they hit 35, even within the same five pages wherein they purport to do the opposite? No…just NO. You are allowed to have full, bouncy hair if you want it, just like you are allowed to wear a smoky eye. We are adults. We can eat cake for breakfast and we can wear burgundy lips if we want to.
