Here are a few other images of Kate Capshaw with shorter hair. While it's a beauty myth that women over 60 must wear their hair short, the real marker for whether you should be wearing your hair short is whether it would be flattering to your face shape and hair texture.

This look works best on women with naturally straight, somewhat thick hair. The bangs are really flattering as well, but do require upkeep.
