The Whole Going Grey Thing
I have to admit, I have given this some thought recently. I just went the longest period I have gone in a long time without having my hair cut or colored. It wasn't on purpose. I had my hair cut and colored by the most amazing hair stylist, Leslie Peterson in Granger, Indiana while up there in May. She is a perfectionist, just let me tell you. She took three hours to do my short little head of hair. When she finishes, there is not one single strand out of place. LOVE LESLIE!
Anyway, since getting home mid June, I had made appointments with my regular guy, John, who I also love by the way, only to have to cancel for one reason or another. As the grey became more and more evident, I thought about what I might look like if I just stopped covering it up. YUCKY has always been my immediate answer.
So, before I went to see John I took a couple pictures of myself with my faded color and exposed roots to help make my decision.
I also look at other women like blogger Vicki Archer who recently did a blog post on this very topic. She looks amazing.
"There are ways to wearing our hair grey that avoid feeling like Granny May Clampett or looking like your worst nightmare. If we are going to go grey we must not only rock it but also own it, any doubts need to be banished and pride in our approach must be front of mind. I need to remind myself of this on a daily basis."Josephine, Beth Djalali, and others who have let their hair go grey and wear it with confidence, and I wonder if and when I will get to that point.
Then there is always the cute "Let it go grey" poster child, Jami Lee Curtis for inspiration.
So what about you? Are you or have you already taken the plunge to stop coloring and embrace the
WHOLE GOING GREY THING?
