Cultural implications to hair color

When I meet someone for the first time, it is not uncommon that they stare quizzically at my hair, instead of my face, during the conversation. After a minute, some bolder folks come right out and say, “Is your hair naturally gray like that?” Some people think I’ve actually dyed salt and pepper highlights in my hair. While I love that they think I am hip enough to have thought of artificial gray highlights, I have to tell them the truth: It’s all mine.
