In 1991 when we got married it was probably closer to a mullet. Which was the same cut my hairdresser gave everyone. It was Mullet town around here in the early '90s.
Then it started getting lighter (and grayer), and I started moving to a more low maintenance lifestyle. No perms, no appliances. Short hair takes more frequent cutting, and I succumbed to coloring for a long time. And then I stopped.
And when it was silver, I stopped coloring it and let it be. Even my hairdresser was dubious. But a short cut and about six weeks and it turned out the natural color was actually a pretty, snowy, silver. Which requires 'blue shampoo' in order to not turn a weird color. (Pantene - you have a year to bring back a gray hair/blue shampoo).
Everyone wanted to know if I felt lighter. I felt lighter when the cancer was gone. For sure. I hope for good. Hair, is just hair. It's definitely chilly. But I have lots of hats.
I think the earrings really dress up the look (a gift from a lovely friend).
