I’ve got a question for you. It’s about fashion. Or beauty. Actually it hits upon a number of different topics. My question is about coloring your hair. Or more importantly, covering those pesky gray roots. This isn’t even an age issue, because I started finding gray hairs in my twenties. I have friends that found them in their teens.
I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately. Growing up in Southern California, gray hair is serious. It’s no laughing matter. Gray is something that signals old age. It’s something that you fight against with all your might. Under no circumstances do you give in and let yourself “go”. People will think that your old.
So when is the right time to stop coloring your hair? I always figured that I would continue coloring my hair forever. I love my brown locks. But I am getting tired of going to the salon to have those pesky grays colored so often.
So here I am, wondering if I could rock the silver, and still look young and fashionable. Not old. And not dowdy. No bubble hair-dos. No mom-jeans.
I’ve been noticing more and more beautiful young women sporting gray hair. I think it can look stunning. It doesn’t have to look like your grandmas gray hair. I am so curious to know what I would look like with white or silver hair and a young face. I’m not totally silver. Probably just chunks of white/silver highlights.
So I think that I’m going to give it a try. Anyone else ready to embrace your gray? I figure that the worse that happens is I don’t like it, and go back to my brown locks.
So what do you think?
