I was 16. It was terrible. My mother was a hair stylist and we started highlighting my hair. Then, when bold red came into vogue, I leapt. I was naturally a reddish-brown color, so I decided to kick it up a notch and go really red. I was a redhead until about 8 years ago, when I decided it was too much trouble keep up with. My natural color now is silver with white in the front. I wear it long and I don't care. Crones are ready to take a stand and fix this world. Count me in!
