Can't imagine not wearing pink. Rose-Pink is the color I get the most compliments on.

At 55, my hair is still naturally mostly brown. I have silver streaks at the temples and a lot of the time they're not completely visible. So far, no intention to dye it. My mother and grandmother went prematurely silver and I thought I would too. I didn't, but their example of embracing their natural color made an impression on me. Both had/have beautiful hair.

My mother got more compliments on her hair when she stopped coloring it in her thirties. A lot of people thought she frosted it, which was silly because the silver was so finely woven through. You could never get frosted hair to look like that.

Don't dress up seriously out of place (Ex: wearing tight tank tops with yoga pants to a fine dining restaurant).

That's the only "Rule" which is important when it comes to dressing up. Just dress up according to comfort and occasion.

Yeah, well, I think what we're reading is that the ladies with the long gray hair don't give a rat's ass about how other people think it looks.

Personally, my hair (at 55) is shorter now and I still color it. I'm in the business world and I feel that works better for me; however, once I'm done with this nonsense, I may very well join the long gray-haired ladies in rat-tail land. I'm looking forward to it, actually, to enjoy along with the stretchy, comfy clothing.

I live in rat-tail land.

Not me, but a lot of those around me!

Old bikers riding hogs and wearing leather vests.

Young crims trying to be tough

Little boys of a certain sector of single moms

Pensioners with drug habits who gave up on how they look eons and 7 grandkids ago

Rat tails on everyone!

I am 60 and I have long hair, below my shoulders, brown with a few grays sprinkled in.

Once every 6, 8, 10 months I go for a quick trim, as needed.....I can blow dry it out in less than 10 minutes.

No way in hell do I want to go short or dye my hair......don't need all of the added upkeep involved.

Short/dyed hair requires frequent trips to the salon.....usually once every 6 weeks.

Most short hair styles require time consuming curling and shaping to look right.....instead of a quick blow out.

In the morning, a quick brushing and I am ready to go, don't have to deal with taming "bed head" hair.....flattened out on one side, sticking out every which way on the other.

Since I retired the long, polished nails are gone and I rarely bother with full make up {doing my eyes} either.

It's all good as far as I am concerned.
