Your Hairstyle Could Actually Be Aging You — Here Are 11 Ways to Avoid That

Bella Quiz: What Does Your Hair Say About You?

From a biological perspective, hair is like a little diary giving clues about your personality, from where you live to what you smoke to what you tend to eat. But from a social perspective, hair can give clues about you in a whole other way. It might be stereotyping, but it is human nature for people to form impressions about other people within mere seconds. "Hair and identity are inseparable — whether you're consciously making a statement or not, your hairstyle does express something about you," anthropology professor David Coplan of Wits University in South Africa told True Love magazine. When it comes to hair, can you guess what general impressions people make based on the length and appearance of other women's hair? You be the judge.

Bella Quiz: What Does Your Hair Say About You?

Generally speaking, what does short hair say about one's personality?

I don't understand the problem with older women having longer hair. I mean, it all depends on your view of "long", but bobs or shoulder length hair in most instances looks good on older women. And I think it's all preference anyway.

I didn't realize it was a quiz, I thought it was a voting type thing! I didn't do so well! My mom just turned 61 and she has super pretty white hair, It's not damaged and she just started growing it out and it is at her shoulders, loooks really good actually, silky white hair shoulder length...and she has naturally tan skin. There are no rules! Just do what looks good!

And I am approaching the big Three Zero. I don't plan on cutting my hair short any time within the next 40 yrs.

I completely disagree with #2. I keep my hair long because I love being/feeling feminine and long hair looks best on me. Not that I "don't want to grow up." I agree with #21 Joycupcake's comment. Thanx. You said it.

This quiz was crap. Where did the answers come from anyway? I don't think there is 1 hair style that is right for every person, regardless of age.

I completely disagree about older women with long hair. I always used to wonder why the idea that women needed to have short hair when older started and I think it is partially because many women tend to have thinning as they age, go through pregnancies, etc. I personally think that if medium/long hair looks good on you, then there is no reason why you can't stay that way till the day you die. Especially if you're still rocking the thickness for this style.

Over 50, colored hair down to middle of my back. I dare anyone to tell me I'm over 50 and must cut my hair, that's the dumbest thing I've read today. And Marie is pretty good looking! Who invented these hair police anyway? And am I to assume everyone with short hair is over 50? Oh I could go on and on, but I'd rather watch football - more sensible.

I have naturally straight hair that grows long easily, and I have always wanted curly hair. I guess it just goes to show that the grass is always greener...

I have long hair and I do more maintenance then most short haired women. Its curly and so II flat iron it on a daily basis. Takes alot of effort but I dislike my natural hair.

If I was to get my hair cut short it would be 'cause I'm so sick of washing and brushing it.. it's extremely thick.. but I want to look feminine!

I hope I always have my long hair, I hate the idea that women past a certain age need to look like soccer moms. what a load of crap.

depends on what you look like at 40...someone between 40 and 45ish could probably do the long hair thing if they're stylish and very well groomed...but 50 is absolutely pushing it (ie: marie osmond)

why does long hair on a woman over 40 have such negative implications? why can't it simply be a style preference? i have to admit, i think super long hair looks unkempt and bad on pretty much everyone, but what's wrong with average long hair on a woman of any age?
