    When I was going to graduate with my associate's degree I was way the oldest out of a couple of hundred. (61). I went mostly gray early and was fine with it... soooo... for some mis-guided, unfathomable reason, 2 days before graduation I walked into a salon and said 'color it'. She said "what do you want?" I looked straight at this purple/pink/blue spike haired, pierced everywhere, young woman and said. I want to look cool. I walked that graduation with deep purple/red/black Elvira hair. I looked like a fricken vampire. It was past embarrassing. And definitely 'NOT COOL'.

    Congrats for graduating and for doing it with some flair.

    As a young adult out of high school, I tinted my hair purple for a business dinner party so that my girlfriend didn’t feel like she was being stared at for being different. Not all choices are good choices.
