The Transformation Saga of Going Gray Continues




Just call me Cruella De Vil and be glad you're not a dalmatian puppy! The top photo is with my bangs combed back showing the blinding white platinum silver. When the whole process is over, I think the resulting color will be stunning ... but for now, I'm still just in the ugly duckling/calico cat growing out stage .. yuck! I have suffered too much public humiliation to turn back now ... two more cuts and the brown will be gone ... then I can start working on a good style. The second picture shows my hair pulled back. I
know I shouldn't be anxious for anything ... but it's hard to be patient ... so if you don't have a word of encouragement ... keep your comments to yourselves ;)

Now THAT is a BEAUTIFUL gray! I'm serious! You're right, it will be stunning when it's done, and you are so close. SO CLOSE! Congratulations!

Hey MM, you are getting there! Mrs. Jim cut hers real short so it was all 'lite' except for a few ends. That worked pretty good for her.
I think you would look real nice that way. Of course you look nice this way too, a lot are dying their hair just around the roots.
..
Hang in there!

Would it work to dye the brown a gray until everything grows out gray? I dont know. I have very little gray so I most likely have no idea whereof I speak! LOL

I dunno... I really LIKE the second picture. With your hair pulled back and your bangs down, you actually look younger somehow than in the first picture.

Hang in there and don't mind the public humiliation. You look great!

Pat said...

I call you beautiful...whatever your hair color.
Me? I'm still gonna color my hair.
