Vanessa Redgrave's Long Hair

I watched a movie entitled Letters to Juliet. It was a nice little romance that primarily took place in Verona, Italy and the surrounding area. It was a good, not excellent movie, but it was an interesting premise for those of us who are romantics and it was worth the time spent watching it.

I was really taken with the beautiful landscapes in the movie, but I was more taken with the hair of the movies two leading ladies, young Amanda Seyfried, with her lovely thick waist length hair, and the over-70 Vanessa Redgrave, with her gently u-shaped APL length hair.

Ms Redgrave has always been a beauty, but with age, her beauty is even more apparent. Her expressive eyes and bone structure make her an exceptional example of what one can look like over 70.

However, what I noticed the most was her lovely long silver hair. Her hair was well below her shoulders, and she wore it primarily with the sides up or in a side-parted ponytail. There was nothing the least bit strange about seeing a woman her age with long hair. It looked elegant and beautiful in every scene.

While I can see that her hair has thinned somewhat, it didn't take away from how sleek and elegant it looked, and I can't imagine anyone saying that she looks foolish with long hair.

I know that 99% of us do not look like Vanessa Redgrave, but it is lovely to see an older woman who does not feel compelled to cut her hair to chin length or shorter. I am quite sure that there is many an expert who would think that she should have shorter hair, but she is her own person, and I admire that.

She is a lovely inspiration to me, and a reminder that there's no hurry in my long hair quest. It's not as though I have a deadline. Long hair can be forever.

'Til tomorrow, my friends. Love to all.

  1. I always thought that she is a beautiful woman. I'm glad that she is willing to be herself and not blend in.


I love hearing from you.
