First Marsala, Now This!

I've wanted to rock the grey hair look for ages. It doesn't go over all that well at my ultra conservative suburban work environment. And there is nothing that can send chills down the spine of my hair dresser (bless her heart, she's an awesome and classy lady) than me casually saying that I don't mind the grey. Some people just don't get why I want to give up dying my hair.  

This article might help them understand. Yes, that right, grey is the it-hair colour for 2015!
“Grey hair is becoming a stylish and fashionable option for both older and younger women alike as the mindset towards the hair colour changes. It can actually make a woman look softer, more premium, more interesting – younger, even, if done in the right way.”
I'm quite thrilled about this. And you know what, I'm going to do it. I'm going to let my hair go grey  to its natural colour and I don't give a rat's behind what anyone thinks about it.

I like the sounds of 2015.

Anyway, I should get back to tidying up the sewing space and get back to sewing those last few gifts.

Happy Sewing!


  1. Rock the gray, baby, you'll be glad you did!

  2. Love this! I did it a few years ago and I have silver streaks around my face. Natural highlights. Go for it! (spend your money of fabric instead)

  3. Absolutely go for the natural! My hair dresser balked, also, but after my hair had all grown out and had natural white highlights, she was humble enough to tell me she thought it looked great and I had made a good choice :).
    Hair dye is unhealthy and many studies have been done on a correlation between cancer and dye.
    I stopped dying years ago and saved all that money, plus felt better about being real.

  4. I haven't dyed my hair for years, the grey is definitely there and I don't mind.

  5. I am all grey and love my hair color. Go for it and ignore those who are conventional.

  7. Thanks for all the encouragement. Last night after reading all your comments I actually parted my hair on the right side exposing the most grey and slapped on some red lipstick which I haven't done in years. I starting to like this new I don't give a damn about the grey and frugal me.
