To dye or not to dye, that is the question

Serious stuff, this – do you dye your hair or let nature take it’s course and go grey? I mean, on the one hand, nothing screams “grandma” louder than grey. On the other hand, nothing is more alarming than 16/64 syndrome – looking 16 from behind with your long blond hair and 64 from the front with your wrinkled physog.

Personally, I’ve kind of got used to my “silver highlights” – they suit my skin tone and are easy to maintain, being natural. I’ve always been a low maintenance kind of gal and would rather not have to change now. But I do waver every now and again when I accidentally leave the magnifying side of the bathroom mirror facing outward and I see a new crop has mysteriously appeared overnight. It looks as though I’ve been painting the ceiling and spattered myself with white paint.

Grey doesn’t have to be dull though – look at how fab Diana (below) looks with her natural colour.

So – what about you? Do you? Or would you?


  1. Apparently grey is the new black!!! Don’t change, your beautiful just as you are x

  2. aww, shucks … thanks! 😉

  3. I’ll keep my gray. I earned it. No amount of hair color would make me feel like 50 again.

  4. Think of the blokes – grey with a shade of pink peeping through! wouldn’t change mine for the world though. It’s a real part of me, wouldn’t feel like myself with a different colour. It’s been a long, long time since a trip to the local barber would ensure all the grey was cut out!!

  5. I will be blonde till I die.
    I am blonde to the core.
    No further discussion needed.
