I’m not talking about high-school seniors, of course.
Last weekend I noticed an elderly lady sporting a mane of slightly purple hair. Now, it’s not an incredibly uncommon sight, and it really got me wondering: why?
This phenomenon spreads beyond culture, as I’ve seen purple hair in both East Asia and North America.
Why? What makes someone go, after 70 years of “natural” hair colour to go: “I think I’ll try purple this time!” It seems like such an unlikely choice, and yet it’s hardly a style I’d consider excentric.
So, what’s the story behind the hair? Anybody thinking of trying golden purple?
