The Victorian idea that self-beautification was somehow immodest now belongs to the dark ages, and should be given the cold shoulder once and for all.
Colour shouldn't just be an agent to cover grey hair, it should be used originally to improve your look and to make you feel good.
You may not like the astounding pinks and purples of the early eighties, but I consider that the young people who have recently experimented with spotlight colours have done us all a lot of good by shaking up the hairdressing profession so that in the salons we've been forced to take a fresh look at colour.
You may not want a bright green or orange crop of hair, but you may well want a exquisite rich auburn or chestnut shade - and it really is very straightforward to achieve these colours.
Numerous people would benefit enormously from having colour added to their hair. It would enhance their cut or hair style and lift it out of the realms of the boring into something truly eye-catching.
Colour also lends warmth to the hair (specially if you add a touch of red to the mixture) and various products give the hair extra shine. Even blonde hair, which tends not to gleam as 'glossily' as dark or auburn hair, can be made to shine and sparkle.
Highlights help, but you can also use a hair spray which contains silicone so that as soon as the light hits it the shine bounces back.
So think of hair colouring light-heartedly, don't be afraid of it, lighten up your life and lives of those around you.
