Fade to Grey!!

Looking forward to mixing up the colours as all shades go with grey?

We are  coming to the end of yet another year – how is it that they go by so fast – they do say the older you get??

Talking of getting older I am now in my 50’s and although I have no problem with that it does bring up one (well many but one I have been thinking about for a while) – am I ready to go natural??  I have been dying my hair for longer than I can remember and have been every colour too – platinum blonde, black with touches of blue, pink and then for the longest time a red head!!

But due to the fact that I have been really busy with the festive season and the roots have been untouched for over 6 weeks and I started thinking – am I ready!!

Many women now are embracing  the grey and forgoing the dye – grey hair is cool now with even the younger generation such as Lady Ga Ga  and others are  turning silver!!

So after posting a status on Facebook asking should I let my hair grow out and the resounding result was YES go for it – come the New Year I will be going natural!!

It is very scary as I have no idea what it is going to look like, how it will make me feel – old?? They are many fabulous ladies as inspiration and who look stunning with their grey locks – so hopefully I will be among them!!

I am going to chat to the hairdresser to see what the best options are – do I let it grow out, but then there is the problem of what do with the roots with such a strong colour to grey is going to be tricky!! Do I go for it and have the colour stripped out?? I am quite excited and a little apprehensive at the same time but looking forward to not having the expense of dying it every 5 weeks, the option to add a few “rinse’s” to change-up my style and possibly match with my outfit!!

I will be in good company with Debbie Harry, Sarah Harris from British Vogue, Linda Rodin to name but a few are the ladies to aspire too!!

The ultra cool Debbie Harry!

But unlike the title of this post I have no intention to “fade into grey” I will be bold, brash and colourful?? As I write this I am looking forward more and more to a new year, a new look and the future is looking bright!!
