Proudly, my hair is salt ‘n’ pepper. Probably more salt now actually. And I love it. After many years of keeping it short, a couple of years ago, I grew it into a slightly messy bob, and discovered that silver hair often has a bit of a wave or curl to it…
But as I launch myself into a new phase of online dating, I’ve decided it’s time for a new look.
Now YOU, my dear readers, have followed me through so much: celebrated the one year anniversary, mourned and commiserated through the break up, cheered me as I came out the other side, and positively encouraged me to move forward into the next life chapter.
So it’s entirely fitting you help me with this bit too! I asked ’17’ what sort of chop I should get, but this was his
brutal honest response:
“Mum, I’ve got better things to do than look at pictures of old ladies’ hair cuts.”
But YOU, dear reader, surely you can give me a minute? Do you prefer A, B, or C? Or have another suggestion entirely? I’m pretty sure I want a white blonde look, whichever cut I choose:
- I don’t want to spend an hour each morning in the bathroom with blowdryer and products.
- I want to look funky, a bit punky, and cool of course.
- I don’t want to look like ‘mutton dressed as lamb’.
- I want to seem attractive yet also my unique, individual self.
- I don’t want to have to go back every fortnight for root touch ups.
I reckon a white blonde look would be fine with the roots growing through, don’t you? Then I’ll have white tips on my silver (people pay a small fortune for that technique).
Previous looks have been these, 2 and 3 years ago, as I transitioned from really short to my current curly, completely un-dyed locks:
Guys, I’m sorry if I’ve bored you with this post (or have been sexist in this generalized assumption- Matt and Brian, I’m sure you’ll have opinions for example). But come on Girls, let me know! All suggestions happily received, and there will be updated photos as reward…
In gratitude for my healthy long-term relationship with an awesome hairdresser, and the thrill of new possibilities, love G xO
