My "Goal" Hair

Since I embarked on this journey of discovering and embracing my natural hair color, I have found that there are many others out there on this same path and that many of them blahg about it as well. One of the blahgs I follow on this topic is called "Loving Gray" and the writer makes a statement on her home page I just love that says, "Excuse me while I obsess over my hair." This blahg of mine started out as a means to chronicle a significant physical change I was making in my life and it has provided a way for me to look back at photos of where I started and how far I have come. This is where I obsess about my hair and I make no apology.
On another note...
I find myself constantly noticing other women my general age who have their natural hair color and have to resist a strong urge to "interview" them. On the occasions that I do have the opportunity to chat with them, I find it interesting to hear their stories about it. Some never started coloring, others stopped after being sick and losing their hair from chemo, and others like myself just got tired of keeping up the ruse. There are so many well known women with natural hair color and I often wonder, "have there always been and I am just now noticing or is it truly becoming more of current trend?" In any event I am always happy to see them and am inspired by them. I am interested in how they choose to wear it...long, short, curly, straight. There are so many ways, some much more becoming than others like any color hair. This is a photo of a person whose hair style is one I very much admire and have set as my "goal" hair.
Her name is (text "borrowed") Susan McGraw Keber, a very talented model, actor, writer of children's books, fashion stylist, top producing real estate executive in the Hampton's . I found her photo on "Loving Gray's" blahg you can find here. I look so forward to reaching that length. In the meantime, I continue on... growing, obsessing, noticing, asking, and periodically posting updates and photos about my progress and other women's grayt looking hairstyles!!

  1. Susan - I wanted you to know that I so enjoy your blog. I find it most interesting to read how other women are making the transition to gray. I, too, think that Susan McGraw's hairstyle is quite attractive - it will look just as attractive on you. Keep up the blog!
