I’ve been a parent now for seven years — 16 if you count the pets — and surprisingly, I don’t have a stitch of grey hair. I keep looking in the mirror, inspecting the lightest strands for any hint of grey. And so far, nada. But I’m 38, and I’m kind of a stress case, so I need to be prepared.
That’s why I’m thrilled that I’ve discovered my Dream Celebrity Hairstyle (DCH).
I always thought I’d take the easy route and just add blonde streaks to hide any grey. But I was a blonde in high school and university, and I really prefer being a brunette (or, as some call me, a redhead or strawberry blonde) — it meshes more with my dark, melancholic side, heh heh, or something.
But then I fell in love with Sarah Jessica Parker’s hair. And, now I can finally tell the hairstylist exactly what cut and colour I want — when the time comes, that is (I don’t want to pay for hair colouring before I absolutely need to). Obviously, this isn’t the best hair photo of her (above)…. But I love the rich brown colour and the warm honey highlights; I love how it looks wash-and-go and, for lack of a better word, COOL, rock star.
What about you? Do you have a DCH?
By the way, Sarah Jessica Parker, 47, is photo’d here taking twins Tabitha and Marion, 3, to school. It’s her second school run of the day; she took James Wilkie, 10, to his school first.
