Holly Fox, Retired Music and Art Teacher, 70.
“I started noticing gray hairs popping up in my mid 30’s and I didn’t have a planned exit strategy. I simply did a very crazy thing. One morning [after decades of dyeing my hair] I woke up at about 3:30 AM, took a scissor and cut my hair very short!! That resulted in such an awful look that going grey was the least of my problems!
We live in a world that is age phobic, but at some point I decided I deserved to take it a little easier on myself, I am 70 and I am thankful. I will never look 50 or even 60 again but I will try to look the best 70 I can look!!”
