This weekend I attended another Christmas party and visited, laughed, and danced into the night. It was delightful! I can never seem to make it through any type of event without someone asking me something hair related. I love it. It gives me a chance to explain things to people and it challenges me to come up with new ideas to do the same thing.
At this party on the weekend, I was approached by a lovely lady who said that in her peer group the question of the day is, "how do you grey, gracefully?" That's a good one! How DO you let your greys come in without looking like a hot mess?? I have decided to tackle this burning question. I think that the best way to approach it would be to break it down into a series and discuss it in chunks.
Like I always say, the best place to start is with a conversation with your stylist. Hopefully you and your stylist have a good enough relationship that y'all can converse about your issue. I believe that the whole grey thing is a bit of a dodgy area for some stylists. The fact of the matter is, coloring hair is THE main way that we make our money. I am optimistic your stylist won't try to convince you to keep coloring if you would like to stop.
When we go through the topic of greying gracefully, I'd like you to keep in mind that you must be prepared to do some work and be very patient. I'm here to help! We'll start the series on Saturday on the fresh perspective... post.
