Monday Beauty Poll

By Glinda

Last Sunday night did not find me writing a Beauty Poll, but instead doing hours of research on how to remove a virus that my husband allowed (allowed!) onto our computer.  By the time I got it off, I really didn’t care about much of anything any more.  Can you blame me?

The previous poll was about the orange beauty trend, and a full 36% of you have decided it is one you are going to sit out. 22% are embracing it, and 17% want to, but don’t quite know exactly how.  I’ll have to get on that one for y’all.  23% only cared about the lovely blue nail polish featured in the picture, and you can find out the shade here.

This question is such an obvious one for a poll, I can’t believe I haven’t asked it yet.

    Once the greys ( well, technically, they’re white) took over, I now have to dye my hair back to the original color.

    I can’t answer this poll as written, because the answer shifts back and forth over time. I used to dye my hair a natural-looking red, loved it, but didn’t love the maintenance. I let it grow all the way back to my natural light/medium brown, then dyed it red again. Then I grew it out again, temporarily dying my hair dark brown while the color grew out. Now that my hair’s back to its natural color, I’m itching to go back to the red!

    Only some of it = I have to add highlights to lighten my age-darkened blonde. I’d probably look better if I caved in and just decided I was a brunette, but I was born blonde dammit.

    Since I was 19, and I’m now 43. When I can afford it and can find a good one I’ll shell out for a colorist (I dye my blah brown red, so it’s worth it to pay someone for a color that doesn’t scream LOOKATMEITSFAKE); otherwise I swear by Nice ‘n’ Easy.

  5. Kimberly Says:

    To copy Whitney: Since I was 16, and I’m now 42. And let me tell you, good colorists do not come cheap, but they are worth it! I am also a “blah-brown-to-red” and right now I have some seriously bright red hair. The power of a good colorist is that they can make your hair look amazing EVEN IF you choose a color that is obvious fake. My hair is actually a metallic red, but I get compliments on it like you wouldn’t believe.

    My mom is 72 and still dyes her hair red (a more natural shade); she loves that I keep mine red, because then I am proof that her red hair is natural.

  6. Whitney Says:

    @Kimberly: There’s nothing wrong with the “fake” reds; I’ve jut always wanted a natural-looking copper and if I get a bad colorist, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve ended up with anything from Home Depot orange (it was actually cute, but not what I wanted) to stop sign red.

    Should have commented yesterday when I voted – I do not color any of my hair. It went grey very early on (I was 34!) and with two small children, I just did not have the time or money to spend on hair care other than shampoo and product. So it got cut very short and has remained so. I’m very fortunate that my grey is a bright, clear silver and suits the rest of my coloring nicely. It gets enhanced with a special shampoo 2-3 times a week, but otherwise is very low maintenance. That gives me more time in the morning to play with eye shadows and earrings. :-)

  8. Little Red Says:

    Not yet but within the past year the number of silver hairs has gone up so I know I’m going to have to start within the next year or two. I’m thirty-eight now and am hoping to hold out to at least forty.
