Sofia Vergara: once women ‘hit 40, they shouldn’t put their hair up until 60’

Sofia Vergara Says "Good Morning America"
Sofia Vergara has a new beauty-focused interview in People Magazine to promote her new fragrance, Love, which is out now. Just like her red carpet interview at the Emmy’s she’s kind of cross-promoting her perfume with her wedding to Joe Manganiello, slated for November. Sofia is smart and she’s a shrewd businesswoman. She knows that her romance sells and she’s trying to capitalize on that with this second perfume. Unfortunately, as we’ve seen with her sexy but entirely one-note style, Sofia has some old-fashioned ideas about beauty and styling. She told People that she doesn’t think that women should put their hair up from the ages of 40-60. What?!

What will your wedding look be?
Personally, I don’t like the natural look that some brides do. I’m 43; I don’t really need to look like a virgin getting married. I want to look sexy… with a bold lip.

Will your hair be up or down?
Down! I think women, once they hit 40, they shouldn’t put their hair up again until they’re 60.

On a typical day, if you have five minutes to get ready, what do you put on?
Concealer. I don’t wear foundation every day, sometimes just bronzer. I fill in my eyebrows. Blush. I’ve never, ever been without lipstick and mascara. I never do five minutes, but I can do it in 10…

Do you things like facial masks around Joe?
No. There are things that I don’t think you should do outside of your bathroom!

[From People Magazine, print edition]

I can relate to Sofia’s position on makeup as I never leave the house without putting my face on. I just feel like a different person without makeup. However I do love a tight pony and I don’t think it’s too young for me. What is she even saying here? One thing I will give her is that ponytails damage your hair. My hairdresser told me to stop pulling mine too tight or to braid my hair instead as he was starting to see breakage. So I’ve had to use clips to put my hair back when I work out. It’s frustrating as the clips don’t stay in when I’m jumping around and it doesn’t look as polished as a ponytail.

This makes me wonder what Sofia does when she goes to the gym. I found some paparazzi photos of her outside the gym and she has her hair down with a baseball cap over it. Doesn’t that get so sweaty and uncomfortable? She’s so dedicated to a look she considers feminine that she doesn’t even put her hair up for the gym. I wonder what she thinks about short hair.

    I could never workout with my hair down. Like ever. And i enjoy playing around with different hairstyles….1 look ALL the time is just sooo boring. But, i get the whole makeup thing, I never leave the house w/o eyeliner

    • Caro says:


    • Caro says:

      Well Sofia’s had her face yanked a couple times (unnecessarily in my opinion). That’s probably why she doesn’t pull her hair up.

      • Zingara says:

        Thanks for reading my mind, Caro. I don’t know too much about her, and just never could get into Modern Family. Her voice drives me up the wall. Does she talk like that when she’s not working? However, I thought it was just me being mean, thinking she’s had some facial tweaking. Every time I see her lately, not only does she have the “OneLook”, but seems to also have OneExpression. I think you’re right about why she doesn’t like putting her hair up. I don’t know… There’s just something about her. I get the feeling she’s not as nice as she makes out, or could be. Eh, maybe it’s just me.

      • wellwellwell says:

        I’m gonna agree with her about not putting your hair up from 40-60. I’ve seen that once women hit that age they all have the same hideous short hair cuts (thinking of that Jon and Kate woman circa 2009), or long wiry, scraggly hair in ponytails. It’s like once we hit 40 we stop deep conditioning.

      • Crumpet says:

        Hmm. I’m 50 and I definitely don’t agree with the not wearing the hair up, LOL. My hair is medium length, thick and curly. It looks quite nice up thanks very much. I wear it up a lot and always have.

    • Imqrious2 says:

      I had long, thick hair, varying from collar bone length to just under my ears (most recent). I wore it up, down, half up, clipped, ponytailed, wavy, curly, flat-ironed… you name it. Age “appropriate” never entered my mind. I just wore it the way I wanted to as the mood struck, and I was always complimented on it (I really did have great hair lol).

      18 mos. ago I was diagnosed with Luekemia. I had to go through 2 wks. of chemo (and thankfully went right into remission). Just as my hair started to grow in, I had a Stem Cell Transplant (and a week of consolidation chemo to destroy what was remaining of my immune system to accept my sister’s cells), which of course, caused the little bit of hair I had to fall out again. I’m just grateful my hair grew back! It took about 6 mos. to get to a pixie state, and I decided that it’s just damned cute! And I’ve kept it this way for just The last 8 mos. now, and I get a LOT of compliments. Do men prefer it long? Perhaps. BUT I LIKE IT THIS WAY. To me, MY CHOICE of how I want to wear it (and take charge of other areas of my life) is VERY empowering!

      So Celebitches, do want YOU want, and what YOU like, and the heck with what anyone else says is “right for you”. 😊 BIG HUGS ALL AROUND!

    • susiecue says:

      the worst thing that can happen to me at the gym is to realize I don’t have a hair tie. I see one on her wrist in the gym pic though, so she probably pulls it up while she’s working out.

      • Kosmos says:

        I wouldn’t be surprised to learn that she wore hair extensions to give more length or thickness to her regular hair. If true, then it’s difficult to wear the hair up much, but you can hold it in a low pony, for instance, to get it out of your face. Sometimes people use hair to cover them up a bit so they can be more private rather than very exposed.

  2. Wiffie says:

    I guess that explains her monotonous red carpet looks. It’s always the same hair, same makeup, same dress.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      Exactly the same. Every time. Such a bore.

    • Neah23 says:

      I image on her wedding day for her to look the same as she does on the red carpet. Same hair, same dress, same makeup and same shoes.

    • NYer says:

      She needs to STFU already. There’s something beard-y about her engagement.

    • Astrid says:

      This from the chick with the perpetual center part.

      • V4Real says:

        I thought that was Paltrow.

        She’s an extremely beautiful woman but she does need a hot cup of STFU. I don’t think there’s anything beardy about her engagement. Maybe I’m biased because I have a thing for Joe. Plus Sofia strikes me as a woman who loves and enjoy her sex.

    • Kitten says:

      Her look is very dated to me. Dated and uninteresting. She kind of has a Peg Bundy/Kelly Bundy thing going on, which is amusing because isn’t she married to Al Bundy on that show?

    • Tiffany :) says:

      I read an interview (Instyle I think ) where she said that a lot of designer dresses look odd on her body because of her figure, so she sticks with the style that works well with it. Can’t say as I blame her. Sometimes when large busted women wear too much fabric up top, it can make it seem like they are larger than they really are in the shoulder area, so that explains why she goes for strapless mermaid.

      • evermore says:

        If it’s not broke, don’t fix it.. She looks great. I don’t mind her always looking the same, it works for her.

      • carol says:

        I read that too. So I get why she wears the same type of dress but her hair and makeup are always the same. And I don’t get why a person over 40 shouldn’t wear their hair up. What’s that all about?

  3. Kate says:

    Her views are so typical of the Latina women on my family, especially the older ones.

  4. Miss M says:

    In the photo she is arriving to the gym, I think she has an elastic hair band in her wrist, non?!
    I think she said it in general, but not necessarily at all times. I think we are reading way too much into what these celebrities say…

    • Mel M says:

      I agree. I think she means like don’t put it up as a hairstyle for the day or night but I don’t junk she’s talking about tbd gym or just bumming around your house on the weekend. I don’t agree with it but I think that’s what she means.

    • V4Real says:

      That sounds about right.

    • grumpy bird says:

      I’m guessing she wears it up for the gym, down for the paps

    • Mary-Alice says:

      Yes. I also wear headbands when I exercise. I have heavy hair and avoid pulling it back or up often as it brings me headache.

  5. LadyMTL says:

    Hm, I thought by “up” she meant like in a bun or chignon. I never really considered a ponytail as being an updo, but then again my hair is just past my ears so it’s a moot point for me.

    Still, it’s a strange thing to say. If you’re 56 and want to wear an updo, why not?

    • Jayna says:

      I agree. That’s the way I took it.

    • Christin says:

      Princess Grace almost always wore her hair up, and looked great. I read that some faces just look better with hair pulled back from the face, and she was an example.

  6. KB says:

    She won’t wear a mask in front of her fiancé? This made me laugh out loud. Does that continue once they’re married?

    • Snazzy says:

      i know, that’s madness. Between that and the hair comment I think she’s ridiculous. I do a mask weekly at home, and of course I leave the bathroom once it’s applied. You have to leave those suckers on for a good 15-20 minutes until they dry! I’ll put it on and then walk around the house pretending like I’m a zombie until it dries. Makes Mr Snazzy laugh. Meh, I guess I’m just weird.

    • ell says:

      i don’t necessarily disagree though, but not because I don’t want my boyfriend to see me do those things, but because I like my privacy. i know couples who would share the bathroom at the same time, and that would be a total nightmare for me. i like my space.

    • Mary-Alice says:

      I don’t do any cosmeric procedures in anyone else’s presence,, so what? My face, my body, my choice. And hers.

    • Jib says:

      Any woman who wears those hideous cheetah pants out in public has no business telling other women what to do in any way related to fashion.

    • Isabelle says:

      My mom was old school southern and never would do those rituals in front of my dad. They were happily married for a long time. She would have fainted at the thought of using the bathroom with him in it. Thought she was old fashioned but older I get think men really don’t want to see every little ritual you do. I for one don’t want to see them plucking their nose hairs or the other beauty rituals they do. Men have their “beauty” rituals as well and some things are better unseen.

  7. Esteph says:

    I sort of agree with her on this….my mom is 50 and I love it when she has her hair down, she looks so youthful and sophisticated. That being said, I agree with you Celebitchy about the ponytail thing, I cannot for the life of me work out with my hair down, and having braids gets annoying too

    • V4Real says:

      I’m wearing a ponytail right now. I’m at work and I am not in the mood for my hair hanging in my face as I type, file, etc.

      • I have dreadlocks–so I either wear my hair up in a ponytail-bun or I braid it back, because I always end up playing with my hair. It drives me crazy when I see people with long hair, in a professional setting (especially as like a doctor or a cook), with it down. It’s just irrational with me. But I either picture hair in my food or that they play with their hair all day.

  8. Wren says:

    I’m so tired of these “hair rules” based on a woman’s age. You’re too old for this style, you’re too young for that style, wear it down, wear it up, cut it short you’re too old for long hair, don’t cut it your husband will cheat on you, dye it you look too old, don’t dye it you look too desperate for youth, and on and on. Gah!

    If Sophia wants to wear it down all the time, that’s her business. Personally I NEVER wear my hair down because I cannot stand hair in my face. And my hair does not take well to styling, it just hangs there limply and gets stuck in my mouth and eyelashes. Doubt that will change with age.

    • Aussie girl says:

      I really don’t like wearing my hair down as well. I just hate the feeling of it on my face and getting in the way.

    • AB says:

      Yeah so I’m the same way. I hate my hair down, I think it looks terrible and can’t stand it in my face. It drives me crazy when I see people working out with their hair down… I could never. I keep my hair back in a ponytail or clip almost all the time, and people actually question me about it! They actually ask why I never have my hair down. If I were braver I would just get a pixie cut.
      And one more thing, one time I tried to wear my hair down with a scarf on, and my hair go so tangled up in the scarf… it was horrible… so when I see people with scarfs on and hair down, I’m like… umm isnt that getting all tangled up? Does anyone else have these issues?

      • lucy2 says:

        I have that problem with necklaces sometimes. That’s fun.

        My feeling is wear your hair how you like it best and how you think it looks the best, and don’t worry about silly rules.
        Funnily enough though while watching MF last night, I was thinking her hair was just too long and she should cut about a foot off of it.

    • Pamela says:

      Wren- your comment was spot on. I think people should do what they like, period. That said, refraining from up-dos from 40-60 is such a weird thing to say. I thought the old school rule was that you shouldn’t have long hair at 40? I don’t agree with that either, but I think traditionally when people were getting all bossy about hair, I think it was widely held that hair like Sophia’s was for 20s and under. So then she decides that there should be a 20 year refrain from up-dos? Odd.

      Also- “She’s so dedicated to a look she considers feminine that she doesn’t even put her hair up for the gym.”

      Look, I get that a lot of people find her “uniform” boring. And I think she could do plenty of other looks too. But she is famous for her looks in a way that even other beautiful starlets aren’t—she is the “funny bombshell” that knows where her bread is buttered and intends to keep it that way. She is not just playing a character, she is playing herself to a degree.

  9. lolamd says:

    uh some of us don’t have thick, gorgeous hair

    • Fifee says:

      Yup, partly due to age and medication my hair has thinned over the past 3 – 4 years by what I guess to be a quarter – third which is a lot of hair and it saddens me. I never had thick hair to start with so wearing it down now it just looks even more ratty.

  10. NUTBALLS says:

    I hate having my hair on my neck when I’m hot, whether I’m working out of not. I love ponytails and will wear them between 40 – 60. But I’m athletic, not glamorous, so maybe that’s why.

    • Boston Green Eyes says:

      I’m with you, Nutballs. I’ve even begun my own hair fashion fad: Holding back my hair with as many small hair clamps as possible. You wouldn’t believe the compliments I get!

    • Kitten says:

      Me too. My favorite hairstyle is a high bun using the donut thingum.

      I let my hair air-dry then slather the ends in the oil of my choice-Jojoba, rose hip, macadamia nut, whatever. Then I pull my hair up in a high ponytail and wrap it around the donut and pin it with long bobby pins. It’s SO easy and I love the way it looks, plus it’s good for my hair.

      I can get ready in the mornings in 15 minutes (as long as I shower the night before). Sofia’s very pretty but it seems like it requires an exhausting ritual to look like that. No thankie.

  11. Naddie says:

    She seems like a walking patriarchal stereotype ( not overlooking her achievements).

  12. Dana says:

    CB- I’ve been having the same hair issue when I workout and discovered a French braid works better than clips.

  13. meme says:

    I like Sofia. She’s hysterical on Modern Family and she is who she is. I don’t think she’s phony and she was giving her opinion.

  14. SNAP says:

    Well, if it rocks her boat…no biggie. Problem is when i go to the store and the lady in front of me looks thin, long hair and wearing tight clothes…so i’d assume it’s some young-en, then she turns around and..BAM! she is wrinkly, probably the age of my own gran…. 0.o wow…turn around lady, turn around! Why do they prance around scaring people like that? Oh and my boyfriend has fallen prey to this trick, too…he’d be checking the seemingly young thing out and then he just wishes he was blind LOL xD So, just a word of caution y’all…..

    • teacakes says:

      I think your problem lies more with the boyfriend who in your own words “wishes he was blind” when he seems that a woman he’s ‘checking out’ is older than he expected. Talk about telling….

    • nora says:

      I’m sorry older women dare to exist in the presence of you and your boyfriend. The nerve.

      • SNAP says:

        lol…it’s just funny…i check out guys too we just try to be discreet 😉 …geez laugh a bit and lighten up. I’m well aware that after a few years my bf and i will be wrinkly old prunes and then it will be our time to pull the scare tactis on the younger people…lol…i’ll be the one with long hair and tight clothes with a wrinkly face…lmao

      • Naddie says:

        Laughing out loud here. Amazing answer.
        And “he’d be checking the seemingly young thing out” , WTF?

    • Scarlet Vixen says:

      @Snap: That’s what your bf gets for checking out other women. Maybe I’m old-fashioned, but I think the only arse your bf should be looking at is YOURS.

      I don’t really understand Sofia’s opinion on wearing your hair up after 40. Did this “Wear your hair down” rule replace the “No white after Labor day” rule? Or is it listed directly after “Skirt lengths after 35: a history” in the unofficial Woman Manual? 90% or more of the women I know that are over 40 have short hair anyway–does Sofia have an opinion on how short hairstyles on women isn’t sexy enough for their men?

      • Nina says:

        Are you serious? Your comment is just as bad as the original. Are you married? Do you make your husband wear a blindfold when he’s in public?

      • ell says:

        good luck believing your man only checks you out.

    • minime says:

      You and your boyfriend get scared by good looking old ladies, because they are…old? That’s a bit odd IMO. I know a lot of sexy mature ladies and I don’t find them scary but inspiring. Maybe that will change with age for you too 😉

    • Brittney B. says:

      “Why do they prance around scaring people like that?”

      I get that you’re “joking”… but good god, this flippant ageist judgment is asinine. “Prance around”? How entitled!! How dare they!

      You do realize women don’t have to dress to appeal to others, right…? That with wisdom — and confidence, and relationships with people who value all forms of beauty — comes the ability to look good for YOURSELF? The women you’re talking about probably worked hard to still feel awesome after their precious few years of being acceptably appealing. They put effort into their clothing choices, their exercise and diet, their ability to keep up with fashion trends, etc. Should they just be hiding in brown bags to make sure the only appealing people are in their 20s and 30s? Would that make it easier for your boyfriend to figure out which women to objectify and which to ignore completely?

      Turn around, indeed.

    • ell says:

      smh at this comment

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        Yeah, enjoy being a young jackass, because you’re going to blink and be an old jackass. Signed, scary old lady.

      • Isabelle says:

        Found people that tend to make fun of others and their age, end up aging the worst in the long run, because us “older” ladies know your attitude has a lot to do with aging well.

    • Isabelle says:

      snap, you will be lucky if you end looking as good as some of the older ladies you mock. Don’t mock sister it will bite you in the derriere.

  15. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    I thought she meant an updo, not a ponytail, because she was talking about her wedding. It depends on the person and their face and hair. Some women look beautiful with hair up and some don’t. Stupid to make a sweeping statement like that. I’m 39 and my birthday is tomorrow. Do I have to change my hair at midnight? Miss wears the same thing to every event.

    • lucy2 says:

      We’re birthday twins! I turn 39 tomorrow.

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        Oh, you’re so cute! That was a hypothetical. I’m older than dirt, but happy birthday tomorrow!!! Promise me you won’t stress about nearing 40. It’s a fun decade. 🍰🍰🍰🍰👏👏👏👏❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷💐💐💐💐💐💫🎉🎉💫💫💫🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉

      • lucy2 says:

        LOL I read it too fast!
        I don’t think I”ll mind 40, but who knows, I have a year and a day to think about it.

  16. Izzy says:

    I hope that comment was strictly in terms of “for your wedding” hairstyle. In other words, when a woman is between 40-60 and getting married (re-married, re-re-married, re-re-re-married — hello, exponents?) she should wear her hair down. I’m afraid that’s not what she meant, but hey, any woman who sports leopard-print lycra and then shares styling laws for all women between ages 40-60 years of age — she’s just going to make me laugh, not take mental notes for myself.

    • Brittney B. says:


      I noticed the juxtaposition between the outfits and the age comment too. I don’t think she should put away her animal print leggings because she’s over 40… but it’s pretty weird to obsess over hair rules when your fashion sense comes straight from a 90’s catalog.

  17. Kristen says:

    But hey, no need for feminism, right Meryl?

  18. Chris says:

    She is slowly but surely turning into Charo.

    • Magnolia says:

      Yes! She looks like Charo and is starting to sound like her.

      In the first pic, it looks like the older guy (prob a bodyguard?) is about to slap her ass and she looks like she is enjoying it. Sorry for the crude observation, the photo just made me giggle.

  19. Nina says:

    That’s her prerogative, but her life sounds like my version of hell. Never going without putting lipstick on? I’ve only worn makeup like 5 times in my life. Not letting her fiance see her with a face mask on? Does she think ManMeat Joe will leave her (he probably would)? How exhausting.

  20. shewolf says:

    The question was asked in context to her wedding so I dont think she means all the time as much as she means on special occasions… and knowing her… probably whenever she is about and about town.

    I feel the exact same way. Make up on, hair down. Sofia looks as good as she does because she does the long tossled hair look… she’d look a fair bit older with short hair or hair pulled back. Not that Im saying she’s not a beautiful woman because clearly she is jaw dropping. But her look and vibe would change SO much if she did something different with that hair and I think her age would become a bit more obvious. If she didnt do figure hugging clothing and long loose hair, she’d look matronly… gorgeous… but matronly.

    • jc126 says:

      I agree. I have to say, I cringe at makeovers where a person looks OLDER afterwards. Sometimes I have the Kathy Lee and Hoda Today hour on, and every so often when they do a makeover, the subject (usually but always a woman) looks much older in the “after”.

  21. paola says:

    Oh man, I can’t stand her shrill voice and her made up accent.
    She is beautiful but I always thought her teeth are too big for her mouth and the flat hair parted at the center make it look like a curtain.
    She sees herself as a pin-up and the millions variations of the SAME mermaid dress she always wears make her come off as boring and uninspired.
    I’m not even sure she has ears under that hair. God knows!

    • AG-UK says:

      Chiclet teeth /porcelain veneers she can barely close her mouth. I don’t understand why people do that hopefully you could get smaller I don’t know.

  22. ruby says:

    Women do up do’s for women, not men. Most men hate it when women wear their hair up. I’m not talking about pony tail’s. I’ m talking about going to the salon and getting some well coifed up do.

    • Nina says:

      I’m petty sure you don’t know what “most men” like or don’t like. Everyone has their own tastes. This is so dumb.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      I don’t know about most men, but my husband greatly prefers my hair down to a chignon, which I think looks good on me. It’s annoying.

    • paola says:

      my boyfriend sneakily tries to get my hair lose when he’s hugging me. He hates when I wear my hair up. I prefer practicality over vanity.

    • AB says:

      Totally agree with you about men hating hair up. My husband is always wanting me to leave it down. He also hates any kind of barrettes or headbands. And he HATES the half up/half down look. Do you know what I mean? When you take the top half of your hair and put it in a clip and the rest hangs down… he hates that.

    • Kitten says:

      Yeah this is weird. I don’t know what my boyfriend likes. I don’t think he cares?
      He’s never said anything either way..should I ask him? lol

  23. OTHER RENEE says:

    I look so much older with my hair pulled up (I’m 50+) so I hate pulling it up to work out but do it anyway.

    I laughed reading the expression “putting on my face” because I haven’t heard it from anyone but my mother! Are you from the north east coast?

  24. minime says:

    err?? And what happens after 60 that is OK to use an up do again? Libido dies? No need to be pretty anymore? Women dye? I don’t know, I’m just confused with the idiot recommendations some of these celebrities do…How much time did she spend thinking about this one?

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      I was wondering the same. I’m 60 next year, so I guess I can wear my hair up again because nobody gives a sh$t what I look like anyway? Lol thanks, lady.

  25. Mrs. Darcy says:

    Eh, it depends on the person. Some people look younger with it up/shorter (though I do think way too many women go short and stay that way for no apparent reason other than they think it is age appropriate). I have curly hair so I don’t have much choice, unless I decide to go permanent straightening route I am stuck with it! I could never work out with my hair down, I find it hard to believe she does either with that amount of hair. Methinks there’s s little bit of grooming post gym.

  26. Maum says:

    At least she’s not talking about feminism.

  27. Mon says:

    Oh FFS, how shallow is this woman? Is she even able to talk about anything else than looks?

  28. tttttttt says:

    I think that look works for her and she is sticking to it that’s all. I don’t think there anything wrong with that. Most people after experimenting in teens and 20s maintain certain look more or less bc it suits them and they are comfortable in. She is a voluptuous sexy woman and thats what she is selling but in a better way than other “sexy’ aka trashy celebrities. With all her surgeries she still looks a million times better than any lets say Kardashian even the 18 yr old train wreck.

    I get what she is saying about her hair. I’ve noticed that as I’m nearing 40 is that my wrinkles are more noticeable (and my youthful fat that is going) when my hair is all pulled back off my face. If I have my hair down and put a bit of a wave in it it soften my face. My hair is like Gwyneth Paltrow. If you look at pictures of her you will see that she tends to look softer when her hair is down with a bit of wave. So for special events I keep this style but on just any given day I am likely to have my hair pulled back quite often.

    Dang, she’s beautiful. Wish I had her curves and her hair. I’d never wear it up either if my hair could look like that. And her man, holy cow, he’s beautiful too. Yes, I’m jealous now… 😉

    Stupid comment about not wearing your hair up between 40-60 though, that is completely individual.

    I think she’s beautiful and her body is bananas, but I find her personal style boring as hell and really dated, as another poster said.

    Her red carpet look is so monotonous at this point that it’s like why bother even going? You wear the same exact thing every year.

    I think she desperately needs a haircut or at least a hair style. The long locks are really getting tired on her. She needs to do something different. I also think her hair looks nicer when it’s brown. I recently caught a rerun of Modern Family when her hair was shorter, much more layers and brown and she was absolutely stunning.
    Look at how pretty she is with her hair off her face! She should get over her age and put her hair up.

      Gorgeous pic to illustrate your point! But I kind of see what Sofia’s saying….depending on the person, you have more lines on your face, more prominent veins, etc. that suddenly stand out when you have your hair up, or even just back – and can be really aging.

      It’s possible that now she wouldn’t look as cute & fresh as she did in your photo example. I’ve noticed when I try hair up or back, some days it’s prematurely aging & no longer fresh. And in a few years, it will no longer be prematurely aging & I’ll be fine with it.

    Before we judge her for her shallow comments, remember, this is PEOPLE magazine, I doubt they asked her what she thought of the Syrian conflict.

  34. Nancy says:

    Well well Miss Sofia has it all wrong….but then again this is the women who wears nothing but mermaid dresses. My hair is in a top pony, side, braid…but rarely is down. I don’t put too many things in age brackets. She may be fooling herself, since when the hair is down it can make the face seem longer and add years. Oh these ladies do worry too much about their looks but I guess it’s their career. Wear that bold lip Sofia, we all know you’re no virgin!

    She is looking like a muppet – too much work – and her teeth – what shade is glow in the dark?

  36. krtmom says:

    She’s starting to look like the Joker! Sooooooo over-rated!

    Celebitchy: a Scrunchie pony or bun for work outs. Don’t you judge me….Do it for your hairs.

    I bet Sofia is now Kate Middleton’s idol…

  39. GByeGirl says:

    She just annoys me. I just have issue with people who seem like their entire lives are wrapped up in their appearance. I’m not saying that one shouldn’t care for their looks, or make an effort, it just seems like that’s all she is. I know this article was promo for a perfume, but in every thing she does, it’s just so looks-based. Like, she’d rather die than wear a Halloween costume that wasn’t sexy.

  40. Katie says:

    She is what she is. I barely ever watched Modern Family so I can’t judge her acting. I’m just hoping Joe doesn’t go the reality show route or make his personal life his career. I think he can do so much more, esp being a graduate of Carnegie Mellon. My prediction is that she’ll have her own TV show when Modern Family is over. Sitcom, talk show, reality? I see any three a possibility.

  41. Bobafelty says:

    My neck gets sweaty and my face beet red if I wear my hair down in temps over 75. I just face sweat like a monster. So hair goes up.

  42. Alana says:

    I think people are taking what she stated a little too literally. I think she meant the hair comment about red carpet looks or walking around in public. I’m sure she ties her hair up to go to the gym or when bumming around at home. I like sofia, I think people are looking for substance in the wrong places. She’s fun and harmless, I don’t get why people are so offended by her.
