My mother, on the other hand, decided last spring at the age of 68 to stop coloring her hair. My parents knew by then they were moving to Our Town and my mother figured she would just make friends with people who didn’t know her when she DID dye her hair!
In consultation with her colorist (my mother and I have widely divergent views on what things are appropriate to spend wads of money on and which are not – but that is another post entirely) my mother decided to get a short cut after going several months without touching up her color.
After she moved to Our Town she started seeing my stylist and together they are working on growing her hair out a bit. I want you to take a look at this picture of my mother:
It is a candid shot taken a few weeks ago and I want you to note she is following many of Poppy’s suggestions.
- Great cut
- Great eye glasses
- Still fit and trim
- And you’ll have to take my word for this, still dresses well and has great accessories!
Mother will turn 69 in a few weeks. Something for me to aspire to, no?
