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"?

Your former colleague was being rude. Ignore her.

@TheSpottedZebra

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.

I know. I hate the expression too. And was going to put in my OP exactly what you said about it but it was War & Peace length already

And yes. Snide. That is it.

God she was always like that working with her too. Just the perfectly timed pause or look or tone of voice.

She's bonkers. Or jealous. You have great hair.

Tbf she was applying the possible witch vibe to herself not you (horrible term, but it does conjure a certain image) but I think your image is more than hair colour. It's posture, clothes, mannerisms... A hissy of things, and her collective factors might be so diifferent to yours that it didn't cross her mind you might pick up on that until it was out of her mouth.

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...

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

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.
