I have a standing appointment with my hair dresser every 5-6 weeks. I go to cover the gray. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy the time I spend with my hair dresser. We laugh, we joke, we share life stories. But I’m there for a purpose and a costly one at that.
So when is it okay to go gray? I guess that is a question you have to answer for yourself. I’ve been pondering this for a while now.
“You sure don’t look 53”. “I hope I look that good when I’m your age”. “You look good for your age”. “I can’t believe you’re 53”. I’ve heard all of this before. What does it mean exactly?
Maybe I do look 53.
That remains to be seen. 😉
Maybe I don’t look good for my age.
Neither can I.
These are my parents. A nice looking couple, no? My mom does not color her hair. She never has. In fact, I probably have more gray than she does. I think I take after my dad…just saying.
I have a few friends whose hair color is au naturel. “Color by God” my one friend calls it. These ladies are beautiful. If I knew I would look that good…I’m totally there.
Mother of the bride…is she gorgeous or what? And the bride’s not bad herself! You can see where her beauty comes from (no offense to the father of the bride). As an aside, the bride is a hair dresser and her mother (my friend) does color her hair when she can hook up with her daughter but I SO wouldn’t if I were her~
This is another friend who opts to go with nature’s choice. Again, beautiful! She has a head full of awesome hair to go with her natural beauty inside and out. What I wouldn’t give to have her hair.
I need a guarantee. I want to look like my friends!
Take my husband, he has really nice hair. Have I mentioned he has had a few modeling jobs? Pssst… I think it’s because of his hair. But men don’t count right? They seriously grow old way more gracefully than women.
This is me a few years ago. Look at the top of my head…the part. That’s what I really look like. You can tell it’s time for a trip to see my girl. Under all that covering of the gray, the highlights, the lowlights and everything else in between, I. AM. GRAY.
It’s okay to go gray, I know. Just not sure I’m ready.
What about you? When is it okay for you to go gray?
