Going Gray: What I Learned about Beauty, Sex, Work, Motherhood, Authenticity, and Everything Else That Really Matters
Best. Book. Ever!
read the book and was curious if the author was as beautiful as she appeared on the book jacket. Went to a book signing and yep, she was beautiful, GRAY! Furthermore, her thoughts about going gray are brilliant. Her thoughts of why NOT to color are equally brilliant. Since publication I have recommended this book a dozen times.
one of her points is that coloring your hair dates you. Many women will wear a hair style and hair color that looked great at a younger point in their lives. Think about it....do you see women in their 60's with a Farah Fawcett hair cut and blond highlights circa 1975? Is it becoming on her? What about a 45 year old woman who has Jennifer Aniston's hair cut from 1995? The author tells us how looking at a photo of herself she wearing her Armani suit with dyed hair, she thought she looked fantastic, until she realized a gray co-worker, in the photo, looked a heck of a lot better. And that's when she decided to investigate whether a woman truly looks better with dyed hair....and investigate she did!
For me, it didn't take reading the book to make up my mind. I never dyed my hair and never even thought about doing it. Didn't need to read the book to realize that the right hair cut is all a woman needs...along with the right lipstick and the right color clothes. Haircut, lipstick and clothes do not need to be expensive. If you are thinking of going gray, or even just slightly curious about going gray...READ THE BOOK!
BTW....her husband, Kurt Anderson,was at the book signing and looked at his beloved wife glowingly!
Doctor told me regarding my prognosis that I WASN'T on the Titanic! Hmmm...Really?....Okay! 02/2010 Pure Mucinous Breast Cancer, Oncotype DX 15, Stage 1, Grade 1, 1.8 cm, 0/2 nodes, ER+ 90% /PR+ 70% HER2- (+1)
