I've been wearing my hair pretty much the same way most of my life (except an unfortunate Dorothy Hamill moment and some bad experiments with bangs). I've gone to the same colorist for about 15 years - and we've never changed the color once.

Oscar PR Girl Erica Bearman tweeted a photo of her own dramatic transformation from brunette to blonde:
Admittedly, I've toyed with the idea of going blonder as I get older because I think it would be easier to cover the increasingly persistent grays. But I don't think I have the courage to go quite that far.
And speaking of gray, this week, Vogue.com showcased the transformation of 20-something jewelry designer Malu Byrne as she took chestnut that had just started to be threaded with silver to full-on gray:
So here's my question to you: Would you, did you, ever make such a drastic change to your own hair? Would you take your cut or color in a totally new direction? Do you change hairstyles almost as often as you change your clothes? Have you or will you let the gray take over?
Personally, I'm thinking no to all of the above. A rut? Lack of courage? Maybe. I'd like to think it's more knowing what works and sticking to it.
What do you think? I'm dying to hear! XO
