I got the book from the library too. I thought it was well done, and the pictures were beautiful. There were a couple of gray curlies in it too. The one especially was of a not-so-beautiful woman who would have been so plain with dyed hair, but her gray hair really made her something special.
What is unrealistic about gray-haired women getting modern cuts and styles? Seems like less work than having to re-touch gray roots every couple weeks.
