Last week I sat in the hairdresser’s chair when the next customer came in. She examined me closely, then moved behind me to get a better look from the back. “Michal,” she said to the hairdresser, “How did you do that?” Michal didn’t reply. I couldn’t see her, but I’m pretty sure she smiled.
“It’s natural,” I explained. She had assumed that my gray streaks were some sophisticated method of highlighting. “Are you sure? You never color your hair? No bottles?”
Amazing how unusual that is. Unfortunately, my naturally stylish and unique hairstyle can only be maintained for a limited amount of time.
