Has this happened to you?

"What I object to is that insipid apology of a hair colour that seems obligatory for a certain kind of thirty- and fortysomething woman. These broads start their gentle descent into middle age good and brunette (even: good and mouse) and then slide limply into a state of mid-blonde with caramel low lights through the course of a decade. They'll pretend it happened to them by accident. They'll pretend they never wanted to be this blonde (for fear of seeming - what, precisely? Blonde by design?). They'll return from their salons saying things like: "Oh no! It's much blonder than I wanted it to be! I told Sean not blonde, not blonde at all ... I did! But look at it!" And then they'll go back for more of the same six weeks later." from here

I don't know, Solo. I thought it made a good point, but a bit harsh & bitter sounding.

written by a man twat?

maybe more to do with blonder tones being more flattering/sympathetic to older skin tones?

She's talking 30s and 40s here when the skin is not yet aged and sallow or the hair going grey so I don't think it's to flatter the skin or hair.
