Am I too old to have bleached blonde hair?

I am 30 years old and have had bleached blonde hair since I was about 21, before that I just had highlights but they turned into a block so I just went for all over colour as it resulted in less damage. My hair is bleached and then has an ash blonde toner put on. I was kind of aiming for the Claudia Schiffer look but it may look more like Sharon from Eastenders! My hair is a couple of inches below shoulder length. Is 30 too old for all over bleached hair? I love being light blonde as it is my signature look, but not sure if it actually just looks silly? I am quite pale also.

I don't think so, 30s not really old.

I'm 32 and I've just gone from my natural brown to all over bleached blonde.
Was bright pink but had to go more conservative for going back to work after maternity!
So no, def not too old!

That's great I am not too old, I really like it, I know I will need to tone it down at some point but not even sure how I would do that? Go back to highlights?

I don't think it's too old. Blond hair is traditionally a sign of youth isn't it?

I miss having bleached blond hair, but I wouldn't have been able to grow it as long as it is now.

oh goodness, 30 is still young. My nanna is bleach blonde and she's in her late 70's. She's awesome.

So you're definitely not too old at all. Id go blonde if I had the guts!

Dyeing my hair repeatedly when it involves bleach, is something I can oly do when it's pretty short. I grew it last year and loved it but also love the colour. It got to a long bob and the condition was losing it! I had to choose so, went shorter again.

I'm now contemplating returning to my light mouse and growing it.

I know I cannot have both. I'm 50. I LOVE the way highlights lift not only my hair but my face to. Just don't go overboard (in terms of condition) is my advice.
