Is Long Hair on Middle-Aged Women That Controversial?

Should middle-aged women wear their hair long? The majority of you say there's no such thing as "too old" for long hair, but it's the argument that won't go away. In an article for the New York Times, 55-year-old Dominique Browning discusses the subject at length. An excerpt:

No one seems to have any problems when a woman of a certain age cuts her hair off. It is considered the appropriate thing to do, as if being shorn is a way of releasing oneself from the locks of the past. I can see the appeal, and have, at times in my life, gone that route. Some women want to wash the men (or jobs) right out of their hair. Others of us have to have at them with scissors. Again, I do not judge. Go right ahead, be a 60-year-old pixie. So why do people judge middle-aged long hair so harshly?

But do they? It seems as though long, graying hair is more celebrated than mocked. Then again, I'm not yet middle-aged, so I can't speak from experience. Or maybe it's a generational thing, because lots of people my age find long hair attractive on older women. What do you think? Is hair length controversial on women of a certain age?
