I have just had a depressing grey haired conversation with my mother.
She thinks now “grey is the new blonde” I should come clean. “How grey would you actually be if you stopped dyeing your hair?”.
Silence. Some things are just not to be talked about in public.
YES. I HEARD THE RADIO 4 PROGRAMME TOO but there is a big difference between cool “fashion grey” and “normal grey”.
Somebody on the radio said “of course nobody actually pours a pot of dye over their heads in this day and age to cover the grey – hairdressers know how to blend it all in now” and I was thinking – “oh. I thought there was still quite a big market for pouring pots over your head – look how many isles are taken up with hair colour in Superdrug”.
Anyway, my mother thought to reassure me by saying, “well of course it would be difficult to blend in in your case, but you look lovely with short hair and then you can let it just go grey”.
Am I at the stage of life where my mother has to tell me I should be going grey gracefully? That stage when people get a fright when they see me from the front?
“Well, of course grey hair suits older skin so much better – it’s much softer”….
SO ARE WRINKLES IN FASHION NOW AS WELL or is everybody just having a laugh?
To be honest, I think wrinkles should be in fashion – sign of having lived a proper life but I’m not sure about the grey hair.
I saw Blondie in concert last week – she’s 66 now. She’s not grey yet – in fact she is so resolutely blonde that she could almost be wearing a wig. I’m going to be like her. Grow old disgracefully. Much more better. But just look at her face – how does she do that?? Somebody, please find me her plastic surgeon’s number immediately:-
