I don't know what you use, but when I make highlights, all hairdressers used the ruber head thingy, pulling the hair with a crochet needle:



It is extremely painful to me, no matter how delicate the hairdresser is. The only time it wasn't painful was when I did highlights on a 1 meter long hair, and they used a tin folie system from WELLA, but it doesn't get the light colour that close to the root, demanding a retouch much sooner.

Oh no, I got my first grey at 18, im 25 now, dying my hair since some very young silly age. I get highlights regularly (hides the grey). I have NEVER had that rubber head thing. lol. Try asking for foil, its quick and painless!

Foils are not as quick as the cap and although I would agree that they are "painless" to the scalp (little to no pulling, let alone any stabbing), they are much more painful to the wallet. (They did indeed grow to be my highlight method of choice back when I had my own income and wouldn't feel guilty dropping something over $200 on prettifying my hair.)

Re: Just found my first grey hair

I am celebrating this week! I have just discovered a home colour that actually looks like my natural red (though I prefer auburn). I am too much of a coward to try Swiss hairdressers so have my hair cut and coloured when visiting family in the UK every few months and colour myself in between. I've gone from too dark (ageing!) to various shades of orange (aaaargh!) and was almost ready to give in to my 'natural highlights' when I found 'goldene Kastanie'. Thankyou Garnier!

Re: Just found my first grey hair

Dude, I'm so confused. Are you a guy or a girl. Not that it really matters of course.

Grey hairs, yes, got one once. Pulled the little b@st@rd out, had a stern word with it and it hasn't been back since. That's how you have to deal with the little infiltrators.

What the bloomin' heck is painful about getting highlights? If it's painful it ain't right.

Started dying/bleaching my hair at 15. Hair started falling out at 18. First grey hair at 21. No longer fitting into military uniform at age 29.

I thought life gave enough time to find a hot spouse before you lost your looks.

Re: Just found my first grey hair

Grey? Who cares. It's the quality and quantity, not the color that matters. Clooney doesn't seem to suffer too many disadvantages dating with his mop.

I had to go flying the other day and my navigator (aged around 40) looked like he had the Amazon in miniature form emanating from his ears, now that's just gross.

Re: Just found my first grey hair

When does blond hair go gray?

Just so I know... I will need a while to get used to this mental image

Well, Assassin, unfortunately there is a problem with your point: Clooney is a man. And the general consensus seems to be that women under the round age of 65 should not use grey hair. I find it kinda silly, but even I, who fights for the freedom from the fashion norms, get a bit uneasy with grey haired youngsters of 40 (my brain sometimes has it's own mind).

Men with silver hair, on the other hand, are seen as "sexy" & "wise".

It's unfair

Unless they are complete goofballs, but even then people oooh and aaaaah

I am not for bras pitchin', really, but honestly, but why give in the push..There are enough nasties in the hair dyes and bleach, anyways, that over the long span can be harmful. There are some fine, confident and sexy graying ladies in the world and it is the fact they could care less about societal expectations that might make them hot, too.

Re: Just found my first grey hair

The colour of the hair can affect how young/old you look like, though. And I know that is something most women are affected by, specially idiots that just jumped the 3rd decade *grumble*.

I don't think it's that easy to get a really great grey/white hair cut without making you look 20 years older. It's not so much to do with the social expectations but your own expectations... I don't want to look younger because my neighbours want so, but because... I'M A WOMAN AND I DON'T WANT WRINKLES

I do envy some nice women that take the train with me, with silver hair cut short, because it does look really nice.

Some are, true that, I agree. Some are little too...butch, and it's not only the hair cut.

I say, wrinkles shmirkles. The hair color, I understand the attachment to how we used to look, etc..but it is all about the attitude, confidence, how mentally young you feel, if you keep active, keeping up the interests and hobbies that once fascinated you, perfecting them...I see myself aging well with studying and bass guitar, hahaha. Plus having kids keeps an eternal young spirit in you. If you teach in architecture school, I bet hanging out in classrooms full of energy would keep one feel young..working with people in general is very envigorating.

I heard sausage diet keeps one young



better than botox, or sumfin

Don't quite know what you're hinting at with the 'sausage diet' MusicChick.
Should I be shocked? Not coming from you, surely?

Re: Just found my first grey hair

Hahaha, it was innocent. I really like sausages. Klobasas, hotdogs. Though I might have to push for the kosher ones.

Ceppych, you sound very young.

My mother, a history and language teatcher, used to sat me on her lap when I was growing up and tell me:

"You know you can be whatever you want when you grow up, right? I'll support your choice, whatever that is! But please, for heaven's sake, don't become a teatcher!"



Architecture students can be the most posh, arrogant, stiff-upper-lip communists who smoke pipe and act like their are 50. I think any teatcher would feel like a child among them...

I think my dear German husband would be intersted in hearing about that miracle sausage diet... (you naughty naughty Chick!)

Now then. This is getting out of hand.
If your husband is interested in the sausage diet, then you really need to be worried

Hahaha....mom watched me when I was 3, organizing everyone, saying, you will be a teacher once..Which I fretted over, sure.

We have a saying back home, "take the largest slice of the bread you dislike" meaning, either, the eternal joke is on you, what you are fighting will happen one day, anyways...or, just get on with it, since there is a reason why you are putting up so much fight against it, inner atraction that brain hasn't processed yet.

I know. What's posh and commie, though? You mean, left? Like, snobs? With trendy commie ideas?

A really good friend of mine went to A school in Virginia, but after didn't want to deal with the whole A biz. There are a lot of interesting, creative people in architecture,with guts to be different, though, not just stiff folks, I am not sure about here.

So...the gray hair. Celebrate it. Just like other mile stones in life...first tooth, first you know what (if it is worth it), first salary, first apartment, first French sentence said without hesitation, ay, it can be poetic..

I'm talking about 18-25 year old snob boys wearing polo shirts, neatly iron trousers, smoking pipe, fashioning a Hemmingway beard, acting like the were born to be architects and that find themselves so superior to everything else, they actually created an alternative "artistic" communist party, to be apart from the "low-level" masses.

Of course there are nice students too, but those ones end up emmigrating to Switzerland xD
