I got "a wild hair" {translation: I'm impulsive and wanted to do something crazy.}. Sort of literally. I have grey hair and dye it my natural color - dark brown. But I'm tired. Oh so very tired of dying it every 3 weeks. Every. 3. Weeks. I saw a fab photo of 20 year old who dyed her hair grey which made me want to dye my hair grey and look 20. So that's when my wild impulsive side kicked in and I wanted gray hair. Now.   I dropped in at my friend Ashley's favorite place and my honest hairdresser graciously omitted that I wouldn't look 20 but did say my naturally curly (frizzy) hair would fall out from being over processed and I'd be in every 2 weeks. I want to be hair lazy and I'd like to keep my hair even if it's a love/hate relationship {we're codependent that way}.  So, my honest hairdresser recommended chunky streaks to camouflage new grey hair and said I have a week to change my mind to any other option. I'm trying to decide if I look like I belong on Jersey Shore, or if it looks somewhat stylish.   This outfit is for heading to a much younger friend's 40th birthday bash... hmmm, maybe that had something to do with my need to cover my grey hair since I'd be the old lady in the room. I thought the red would take the attention off my hair and wearing my fave color always makes me feel great.   For all of you who have grey hair and cover it, how do you cover grey hair? {Seriously... please let me know, I've only got 6 days, 10 hours left to decide.}   linked at: Visible Monday, Glow Kouture, Glamamom, Style Sessions, What I Wore Wednesday
