Maturing...and I hate it.

I've heard that the ones that are really feeling the hurt from the economy are the hairdressers and nail techs. Apparently people are going longer between haircuts and forgoing having their nails done. I'm not one to get my nails done, but I have been going longer between visits to Alison, my trusty hairdresser, mostly out of laziness, not the economy.

BUT - I'm now in a mad rush to get an appointment with her ASAP!
I'm not old, I'm really not. In my mid-20s I SHOULD NOT be finding gray hair in my head, but they are ruthless, popping up like crazy out of nowhere. I've been plucking them (I know, I know, you're not supposed to do that) because they shine like a lighthouse on my head of dark brown hair.

Ugh. Ugh. Ugh. This stinks.

I've never been one to dye my hair, but I'm about to be a convert. Heads up, Alison, you're about to start getting a lot more of my money every six weeks. Hopefully I'll make up for some of that lost business due to the economy.

Ha! i'm sure it's not that bad... my husband who is 26 with dark hair finds the grey periodically and oh the world almost stops turning!

There's no shame in a dye job.

Why are you not supposed to pluck them? Oops.

Supposedly you pluck one and 10 more come to its funeral. That's the word on the street, anyway.
