Still, I say color your hair if it makes you feel good to do so. But if you’re of a certain age—and I include myself in that category—keep in mind that even your closest friends might not tell you that your hair color looks ridiculously fake. So remember, look around, and look at your peers. And when you’re out shopping and you see that woman with the monolithic auburn hair, crow’s feet and turkey-skin neck? Maybe you think to yourself, “Poor thing, she’d look so much better if she just went gray.” Be sure that’s not your own reflection you caught in the shop window!
