    It's not your age it's how you wear them.

    One of my good friends is an 85 year old ex-nun and has a pink stripe down the middle of her spiked, silver hair. As long as you have a life, enjoy it.

    With nice jewelry & a killer bag (that a 20 yr old couldn't afford) ;)

    Well you all know what I'll say to this - you are never too old to wear anything you want to wear.

    I am thinking that a silk beanie under my motorcycle helmet (although I ride a 49cc scooter in the warm weather) may be just the thing to preserve my waves/curls. I'll be getting one from here in the spring

    My grandmother wore beanies at the age of 89!!! I wear them a lot now, since the weather is colder!

    We are never too old to wear beanies. Don't over think this age thing. It really is just a number. I wear anything that I want to as long as it doesn't look slutty and that was my same motto when I was in my 20's. Just make sure YOU like the way you look. Haters do exist so there will always be someone to complain but don't worry about them. I love to wear beanies during the winter months, especially on a bad hair day!

    Oh gosh..., I just ordered another beanie and I never knew I was doing something daring for my age :) I think they look better on me than any other style of hat, I get a lot of complements on my beanies too. I am completely fashion ignorant, so when I see something that looks great on me I grab it and wear it :) Age wise I trust myself not too like anything too crazy :)

    CG since Aug 15, 3A/3B mix, normal/high porosity due to switching to permanent color, but otherwise hair never chemically treated or heat damaged.
    Mostly Deva: No Poo, One Condition, Coconut super cream, Arc Angel; argan oil
    Occasionally: DC with coconut + honey + condish, ACV rinse
    HG so far: hard hat ionic dryer, shower water filter, octopus hair clips - these 3 products made so much difference!
