As we age, our hair ages as well, and we often associate older people with grey hair. While it’s perfectly natural and cool to rock the “wise wizard” look, some people choose to go a bit “crazy” with their hair color and try out things they haven’t tried in the past.
Patti Smeed is a woman that used to go for the redhead look for more than 30 years. She’s now 74 years old and had a conservative job that didn’t allow her to go “too crazy” with the hair color. However, she finally decided to try out something more colorful, and her son, a master colorist, agreed to help.
Smeed now rocks a colorful hair that has six different colors in it, and it looks super-cool. The 74-year-old decided to celebrate the result by tweeting out a few photos of her new hairstyle, and her tweet racked up more than 370k likes. Additionally, it prompted a number of (older) people to share photos of their own brave hairstyles, and they started off somewhat of a “brave hairstyle in advanced years” challenge.
