The Graytful Head! A Look at My Favorite Wig--Jamison in ChromeRT1B!
I just had a good laugh looking at some videos online. I had to check out facelift patches after seeing a spectacular video on an older woman applying makeup (and I believe she also used these). She looked so very much better in her after pic - and I am a bit down about my aging skin - whenever I think about it which frankly is not that often. I should mention the tie in - her wig was grey. I think she was at least a bit older than 70 based on the before pic. Now in the after pic - I would guess early 60's because her skin looked so good and frankly the wig looked great. She looked like an older model.
So - looked at amazon and there were lots of choices. Then I went to look at youtube videos. I would have no trouble covering up the bands as I wear wigs:)
So - here is the funny part. The people doing the videos were in their late 20s, early 30s, and the oldest I found was around 40. Seriously?????
IMHO - all of us are trying to look better which - for better or worse - in our society we associate with looking younger. I think grey wigs call attention to skin - and if you have great skin - they can look great. just my opinion.
Cathe - you do have great skin and everything looks great on you. But in our brains which have been conditioned to see old people in grey - it is likely to call attention to age whether we like it or not. Then you might think - wow looks great for his/her age - or wow they are fit - or wow he/she is young to be grey - or what a cool color - but my point is that we will think about it. With other colors - they are less noticeable during that "transition age period".
Now - when you get to be much older - a dark color calls attention. Blondish tends to blend regardless of age.
It is just personal preference as to what color to wear - and that includes grey. But, the very fact that we are discussing the grey along with age says that grey triggers the conversation.
Again - just my humble opinion.
