It used to be that women of a “certain” age were expected to have shorter, more “mature” hairstyles and those of us who kept ours long were considered radicals.

A third friend is a bit younger, with similarly long hair. In addition to that, she had the courage to stop colouring it as well and is naturally grey now. Looks very striking! 🙂 I’m not that self-confident and still get rid of those roots every 6 weeks or so.
