My hair has been some sort of blonde 99 percent of my life. A towhead as a child, the color has varied over the years, but there’s always been some shade of blonde to it.
I came by the color naturally, since both my parents were blonde as youngsters.
My father’s hair eventually took on a reddish hue, before it thinned to the point that he was just grateful to have any hair at all.
My mother’s hair became a rich brown with auburn highlights, and when she died at 70, it was still a stunning color with minimal gray.
