Well, I checked out of the library the book "Going Gray Looking Great" and decided that's not for me, at least not for a long while.

I feel the author didn't or couldn't make a strong enough case in favor of going gray. The women she features in her book are not average, everyday ones and in order for them to look glamorous they had to have an expensive stylist give them modern cuts, which I'm sure is not very realistic for most of her readers which are only going to look like an older version of their former selves.

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.
