I was baby sitting my “adopted” 7 year old grandson Dylen. He was showing me how to use my computer . . . (no smart remarks please). When he saw the picture of me that is on ALL my internet profile pages and blog he asked, and I quote: “Is that you when you were younger?”
You see, I’ve let my natural hair color grow out. It’s grey and short and spikey.
The inspiration to do so was ultimately one of my favorite blogs Advanced Style. Take a look at a trailer for a documentary on Advanced Style*. INSPIRING!
Maybe Dylen will take a new picture of me after I get my wardrobe together . . .
1. Get and wear granny glasses, preferably ones that hang from a gaudy glasses hanger rope.
2. Wear black granny shoes, preferably with orthodics.
3. Begin walking with a cane (or you might just want to limp a little).
4. Start saying whatever you want whenever you want (oh, you kind of do that already).
Joyce Dear Aunt Joyce,
I am not sure about #1-3. HOWEVER, I know that #4 is the most aging . . . for me and everyone else. You know my Human all too well.
MaxMax, Please let Anty Judy know that I think gray hair is beautiful in and of itself. When I have enough of it, I will stop coloring my hair (which I do myself because I, too, detest appointments). So I say, go gray all the way.
Dear Aunt Raffie,
I’m not sure about the first sentence. HOWEVER, I caution you telling my Human to go “all the way” with ANYTHING.
Let it grow natural. Unless you use a very low toxic hair color, it is another carcinogen
going into your body. Besides, once you have a lot of gray hair, you have to touch up
frequently….and you have to find a good colorist, very few of those, to really have a beautiful result and that cost hundreds of dollars to keep up. Can’t go cheap on that one:-)
A Good hair cut is key and keeping the cut updated. Nothing like a dated haircut to age one. I use to go into L.A. to get mine. I LoVe L.A.
That’s my two cents worth. Glad you have natural nail. Never could understand the false nails. I now they’re popular in OC.
Dear My Best Friend Ida,
I’m not sure about your first paragraph. HOWEVER, I can’t understand the false nails either and nail polish is a complete waste as it doesn’t stay on when you have to dig and scratch.
Your owner is also beautiful, but I think she should color/not color as her heart leads her. It sounds like she’s leaning toward NOT.
I do color my hair. I started at the age of 40 because I figured I’d earned it. But I love it. I love the feeling of somebody else taking care of me for a little while, I love the feeling of having my hair looking completely unnatural…it has always felt like total luxury for me. I only get it done maybe 3x/year – I’m dirty blonde turning white, so I can probably get away with fewer trips to the salon than most.
So I think you should tell Judith that she should do what’s in her heart, and that you think you hear natural hair growing inside there.
Dear my NEW best friend Jane,
I’m so glad you noticed – I am a natural strawberry blond. That’s why I always wear turquoise collars. That color also plays up my warm brown eyes.
Lickingly yours, LLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL
P.S. My Human follows her heart very often — that’s how she ended up with purple streaks in her hair and ME!
Dear My Best Friend Maureen,
I’m not sure about anything you said. HOWEVER, your last sentence was right on the mark.
P.S. I really don’t care if my Human’s hair is grey or purple or chartreuse as long as she doesn’t color it the same as mine so we look alike.
