If your hair is thinning and graying, a pixie may be the answer. But there's no reason to cut your off simply because you've reached a certain age. If you still have thick, luscious hair at you age, it's totally fine to keep it shoulder-length or longer. Gone are the days mature women chopped of their hair because social norms dictated that they do.
