Last night at dinner, my gray hairs came up as a topic of discussion. Again. For some reason, people seemed to be annoyed that I won't do anything about them. One friend recently remarked, "Wow, those are certainly filling in!" and I've started to notice some people noticing them a little too much for polite conversation. [Note: I don't have that many, but since I'm just a smidge over an Olsen, almost everyone ends up staring right down into my roots.] But even with every type of dying product known to man coming out, I don't want to do anything about it. I've never dyed my hair before, and I don't see why I should have to start now. Silver hairs don't bother me, in fact, I think they're kind of cool. I may have been the kind of girl who needed lip gloss to study for an exam, but I just won't change myself in a way that can't be washed off at the end of the day. It's not that I think it's too fake - I have no problem with other people dying their hair - it's just not my style. Which would be fine, except for some reason, this style seems to be pissing other people off. It it just too matronly? Too fifth-grade teachery? Just too damn unsexy to not cover up? [Note: The only woman in fashion we could think of with gray hair was Miranda Priestly, a fictional character, in case you forgot.] Would you let your hair go gray? Or are you going to pretend you're beach-blonde til you're 90?
