She said my grey suits me

by jl333 on February 9, 2014   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Hmmm...this was said to me by a lady who can't stop coloring her hair. I colored my hair for about one year. And that's it. It was a waste of time and money. Sure I got compliments, But I decided it wasn't worth the time and money to please other people. I told the woman people will just have to learn to love my grey hair. She responded by saying she could never go grey, but lucky for me my grey hair "suits me". Still stewing on that one...
