When I was in the midst of my corporate career, I felt a lot of pressure to continue to dye my hair. My thinking, at the time, was that, in order to be taken seriously, I needed to avoid any associations with getting older.

Now that I am in my mid-60s, I have to admit that the prospect of letting my hair go grey naturally is increasingly appealing. I’m sure that many women my age feel the same.

In a strange way, after so many years of fighting to keep my hair colored just the way I liked it, I’m not even sure where to start when it comes to the discussion of going grey. My blond hair has simply become a part of my identity – as a professional and as a woman.
