    The older you get the less hassle you want to have to deal with.

    Is it because it makes them look young and smart and efficient? Such hair style, for some reason , just seems to be in harmony with the rest of their physical appearance and their internal character! Sometimes it just seems to be a reflections of their strong determination!

    well from an outsider looking at Asian hair. they have a lot of it , so thick and luscious , maybe at a certain age it just gets too hard to manage.

    I think most women cut their hair as they get older. I think its because as you age, hair loses volume and thickness, thins out and can even bald a little bit and the hair changes texture so in a lot of cases shorter hair is more flattering for that hair type

    Hair gets thinner as you get older, often to the point of bald patches for many women. And grey hair doesn't only alter the colour but changes the texture of the hair.

    After menopause, the hair often becomes dry and lifeless. It doesn't bounce and swing anymore.

    so they prefer to cut their hair short.

    Easier to maintain. When you’re in your 60s, the last thing you want to do is spend that much time washing and combing your hair.
