Shit. Do I look "Witchy"?

Saw an ex-colleague in town today. Not seen her for c7/8 years. Bit of chit chat, small talk. And then "So you have embraced the grey. I thought of doing it in lockdown but was scared of having that witchy vibe... You're kind of rocking it though...." A bit of a pause, a change of subject and soon after we went our separate ways.

DIdn't think much of it then. But now it is digging at me. Do I look witchy? Midlength grey curls. A bit of frizz - then my curls nearly always have a bit of frizz.

Photos attached. Would normally be wash- day today - but playing sport tomorrow morning so eeking it out an extra day - so not an "insta-best-photo-possible.

Should I listen to the "Witchy" or the "Rocking it"? I know I look my age and don't really care. But I am just wondering if I need to rethink the length/style? I am nearly 50 (like days from being 50) so wondering if am over-thinking it cos of that...just having a bit of a crisis.

Honest opinions please?

No, you look fantastic & stylish. Lucky you having curls. And can I say you’re very pretty with amazing skin.

What?! No I think you look bloody amazing! How exceptionally rude and unstylish of your friend. There’s a great article in the mail about andi mcdowell being grey.

I think you look stunning!

Witchy is such a misogynistic, ageist word.

Do you look 19? No. Do you look amazing? YES!!
Your hair is beautiful.
Your ex colleague was snide.

You look hot, your friend was being either thoughtless or passive aggressive

LoveGrooveDanceParty Sat 04-Dec-21 19:42:01

You’re gorgeous - don’t change a thing.

MichelleScarn Sat 04-Dec-21 19:43:09

You look amazing! People are paying to have their hair dyed like that!

DillDanding Sat 04-Dec-21 19:43:11

It looks great.

I have very similar hair to you, but mine’s longer.

I have a lot of grey and have avoided letting it proliferate as I worry I’d look witchy too. But you definitely don’t.

I'm a good 10 years younger than you and I would swap for your hair in a heartbeat. You look amazing!!

thickthighs73 Sat 04-Dec-21 19:43:29

Witchy not in the slightest! The ex colleague was probably jealous that she looks like shit.

tiredanddangerous Sat 04-Dec-21 19:43:32

You look gorgeous!! Not at all witchy

Starcaller Sat 04-Dec-21 19:43:41

MoltonSilver Sat 04-Dec-21 19:44:12

Not at all. You're beautiful.

Helpstopthepain Sat 04-Dec-21 19:44:12

You look gorgeous

MadMadMadamMim Sat 04-Dec-21 19:44:29

I think you look great. It's the look I'm aiming for, having let mine go grey and I have curls too.

Mine isn't quite as long as yours - roughly chin length at the moment, and I'd be happy to look like you.

On a bad hair day I suspect I look like Grayson Perry...
