This is a study of a mannequin produced on a day when there wasn’t a life model. I used charcoal. Notice the ghostly imprint on the left hand side of the page.
Today I had my hair done and it was very disconcerting to see a chap behind me with a rubber cap on his head having his low lights done. I have to say I think grey is very distinguished and men having their hair coloured is a complete turn off. Probably the opposite of the effect they”re after. Talking to my hairdresser after he’d left the salon she explained he has a very young girlfriend so wants to stay looking young to match her age. We both agreed that for blokes colour, toupees and comb overs were a complete no no whilst for women we should do whatever we fancy.Of course.
Top tip for men: if you do decide to colour your hair stay away from warmer shades which border on ginger, and doerr on the side of ash tones which look more natural. Apparently. Spread the word and it will save some men a small fortune. We also agreed that the day Tom Jones went white he looked better than all those years with coloured hair.
STOP PRESS: I asked my other half what he thought about me going natural , ie. grey, and he said he thought white could be very stylish if cut well; Really, I said, yes he replied, just look at the French finance minister. And they say men don’t notice things!
