Pemalyn Hessing, Marketing Specialist, 39.
“I’m not bothered by aging. Going gray is more of an inconvenience. I don’t feel like it matches my more youthful appearance at 39 and my energy. I think there will be a time when I feel more settled and grown up (I still don’t feel that way even with a mortgage and kids!) and when that day comes, I will embrace it. It just doesn’t feel like me right now. Some may see dyeing my hair as a vain choice but for me it is just a bad fit. I think silver can be sexy. I don’t think going silver is letting yourself go but more of a readiness for metamorphosis. I’m just not there.”
