FIFTY SHADES OF GRAY
Sorry … I haven’t read the book, so there will be no discussion of sexual dominance or submission in this post. But in a series about color, I wanted to talk about what seems to be an often overlooked choice for hair color.
For some people, gray hair is to be avoided at all costs! Growing up I remember the neighbor lady would pay her kids a nickel for each gray hair they plucked from her head. She did seem to have rather thick and coarse hair … perhaps she didn’t miss those strands as much as I would. While I cover my gray, I have to admit, I am intrigued by the celebrities in the past few years that have chosen to “go gray” as a fashion statement. Kelly Osbourne sported a beautiful shade of gray hair with violet undertones. Kate Moss incorporated gray highlights into her blonde hair for a striking effect. And Lady Gaga spiced up an all gray color with streaks of blue!
There is something special about a woman at any age that chooses to go gray—the strong, confident vibe it gives off! If it’s something you are interested in, but think you might need a little help to get the effect you want, call us at 717-846-4424 to schedule a color consult with an Indulge Salons stylist.
GRAY or GREY?
Both spellings are correct in the English language, but grey is more commonly found in British English, while gray is the more accepted form of American English—in both cases by a ratio of about 20:1!
FACT OR FICTION: Cats and dogs are completely colorblind and only see in black and white?
Although this has been widely believed for a long time and was even backed up by a scientific experiment in 1915, it is a myth. While both cats and dogs are partially colorblind and unable to see red or colors closely associated with red, they have little trouble perceiving blues and greens as well as being able to distinguish other colors. One thing cats and dogs both have a lot of, though, are rods in their eyes, which, among other mechanisms they each have, allow them to see much better than humans in low-light situations.
