I have seen so many young people (at this point that would be under the age of forty) with wild and crazy embellishments. Piercings, chains, body art. Hair of unusual colors. At first my conservative upbringing brought a frown to my face but after a while…okay, a very long while…I wondered. What would my hair look like with maybe a splash of color?
What WOULD people say?
And, did I really care what they said?
No, I did not. Especially not after I looked at photos from when I chaired (managed) the Saluki National. Sure, I was smiling but that hair…
Shortly after I returned home, I dropped into the local beauty shop. “I want a trim, some shape, some color.”
“Good idea. You want blonde highlights?”
“Not really. Just…here and there.”
Fortunately she understood intent as well as words, and suggested a ‘Peekaboo’ effect, with the color underneath instead of on top. Since she had also suggested African Amethyst, am intense violet shade, more subtle sounded like a good idea!
If you’ve followed this far, no doubt you’re wondering how this experiment turned out. Well, what do you think?
By the way, I’m kind of surprised to be sharing so many pictures of me without a dog or book to hide behind.
Tomorrow…just you wait. Cover reveal for A Question of Faith!

Looks great. And why not, indeed? You get to a certain age and you say to hell with it. Good for you.
And then we wonder why we didn’t do it before
I love it!
THANKS! It’s great fun
Looks fantastic! I’ve been thinking about doing something similar. Now I may just have to go for it. 🙂
