Shit. Do I look "Witchy"?
381

ChoporNot · 04/12/2021 19:37

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?

Shit.  Do I look "Witchy"? Shit.  Do I look "Witchy"?

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.

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.

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.

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

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...
