POLL: Is Long Hair After 40 a Style "Don't"?

Carolina Herrera thinks so. In an interview with London's The Times, the Venezuelan designer had this to say about women over 40 who keep their locks flowing:

"Long hair after 40
is out in my book as it looks too messy and too young. Women need to learn
how to age gracefully."

Normally we'd be grateful for any piece of advice this legendary fashionista has to share, but we think this one is up for debate. Sure, we'll consider a short 'do later in life, but isn't 40 supposed to be the new 20?

What do you think?
