Why can’t anyone give me a decent hairstyle now I’m over 50?


For almost a decade, I have been hitting my less-than-perfectly coiffed head against a brick wall in search of a good haircut to suit my age. But now, having reached the big 5-0, I am almost ready to throw in the towel.

I do not believe I am fussy or awkward; I do not think I have impossible hair, nor that I want something unachievable.
