Do Blondes Have More Fun?
Paula and Mandy both commented on the Cyrsti's Condo post Historical Blond (hysterical?):

The Blond Bombshell is still an aspiration for some of us! As my natural colour became lighter (grey) I found that using a wig of my original colour (Dark Brown) no longer looked natural as my skin tones had changed as well. However the grey did age me so I have just gone blond, being the wrong side of 50 I was a little worried what people would think when I was pretending to be a bloke, but so far no negative comments.

Lucky you! Blonde would be nice....
Every time my hair gets lighter, I get comments from my wife, which lead me to darken it up. She definitely rebelled at the highlights I tried...and it took several months for them to completely disappear!
So I just stick with as close to my natural color (back in the day, since I'm gray now) as I can get.
Thanks ladies! Looking back, I can see when I tried to go very blond was a mistake (I looked like a bloke, Paula) but going with a honey blond shade, I began to come and go in society. My wife however, disliked
any shade of blond on me-
which (looking back) I think had more to do with her prejudice against other genetics than me. Also Paula, I'm a firm believer in NOT following the hair length rules and color shades on women of age. Do your thing, own it and society will too-unless you are squeezed into a mini skirt and 4" heels in the mall.
Mandy, sounds like you may be going through what I went through. I am lucky Liz wants to play with my hair as much as I want to experiment with it. The whole process is fun because it fits my shortened attention span!
