My gray hair is so much a part of who I am that I just have never considered dyeing it. I don't have a problem with anyone else dyeing their hair, but like Anne Kreamer points out, a lot of the time dyed hair looks very false and not very flattering. Friends say to me, "But you have good hair. It's thick and it is a nice silver-y color". Pshaw. I have seen beautiful white hair that is thin and wispy and makes the wearer look like a million bucks. It's in the cut and the style, not the color.
So here's to my sister Becky and my brother Steve and Jane Ann and Christine (who has already declared herself my "hair twin") and Meryl Streep as Amanda Priestly and Emmylou Harris and me and all you other gray-haired beauties. I think our time has come.
