To go gray, or not to go gray, that is the question. If I thought I had any semblance of beautiful gray hair that could maybe be whitened up a bit, as opposed to lightened up which is what I do now, I would go with it in the proverbial heart beat.
Of course there’s gray and there’s gray and then there is that most divine of colors, the perfect white — sort of platinum, sort of gray, sort of perfect.
I think Lisa of the brilliant, stylish, intelligent, thought-provoking blog, Privilege has decided to go all the way and she looks gorgeous. (Lisa if you visit today, please leave the direct link for me. Merci. Also, let me know if you would like me to add more adjectives.)

To be perfectly honest, which I always am with you, I have no idea what color hair I have. I know approximately and I can tell you it’s most unattractive. I see it when the roots start to grow out from my highlights. I asked my talented colorist if I could go gray and then she could hype it up a bit to get that glam gleam. She said, “forget about it. In order for you to what you’re looking for we would have to remove all the color and start from there. I don’t recommend it, and I don’t think you would be happy and besides it would grow out again to that nasty color you hate.” (She didn’t say the part about the nasty color I hate, she was more delicate.)

So, that’s my story. It seemed to me the gray/white/silver/platinum/salt and pepper issue was a logical way to round out this week of the “Faces Through the Ages” series.
Where do you stand on the debate?
I’ve noticed from your pictures some of you have decided to opt for gray and I must say you do look glamourous, sophisticated and pretty. (Please keep sending me your pictures btw and tell me, name or no name. The series will continue on and off as long as you agree you like it and as long as I have pictures. Remember, tishjett@yahoo.)
