    Nice to see some long hairstyles for ladies at last I’m afraid long hair in general is much more attractive than short at least in its appeal to members of the opposite sex

    Lovely to see such lovely long hair with varied styles How anyone can think short hair is more attractive than long on a woman has always been completely beyond me anyway but these styles have a practical as well as aesthetic side. L aura my good lady is 51 has straight hair below her waist refuses to cut it and she and it look lovely. I would be the last person to want her to cut it but maybe looking at these styles might interest her as she could keep all the gorgeous length but alter it a little? Then we just have to avoid what I know she dreads…a scissor happy stylist!!
