Is there an age where crazy hair becomes unacceptable?
I'm considering dying my hair pink, but there's this 31 year old mom voice in the back of my head that says "You're a grown up! No!" So, curious, if there aren't job restrictions, is there an age when going with crazy hairstyles is deemed inappropriate?
There are always going to be those who find certain choices we make unacceptable. For me, I wouldn't do it, but I live in a small town where everyone likes to gossip and have enough issues keeping eyes off me and minding their own business. However, if pink is something you love and you want to express yourself with it - more power to you.
I have a tattoo, would love to get another one and I'm 40. People in my area disapprove - but so what? Not their body. I can cover up a tattoo though - pink hair not so much . Be ready for negative reactions by some and probably immensely positive reactions by others - In short, do what makes you happy! Pink hair certainly isn't hurting anyone lol.
Whateva makes u feel good do it, dnt listen to others especially now days ppl gossip bout hw dey dress, look, walk & body language. Well if u dress as ur favourite character frm a movie do it, forget bout the others, dey dnt hav wat u got, rather than doin wat everyone is doin, im sayin if u wear clothing dat makes u feel comfortable den do it. Crazy hair like dat moves me lol something different tho be teasing me B-) Hey go crazy, bt dnt go overboard.
The pic anime right?!...
You're still very young, so pink hair is pretty much acceptable. The only thing to keep in mind is that bright pink hair is distracting. Consequently, when you talk to people they're going to be focused on your hair because hot pink is sort of in-your-face.
Personally, I think that blush highlights are really, really pretty and can enhance a woman's atractiveness. But with a full head of bright hair, that's all anyone sees. At any rate, if you feel strongly about making a change, it doesn't matter if you're a mom. It's perfectly fine. I wouldn't worry about it.
Life is a personal journey!
Nevertheless it takes courage not to care what others may think. Being a "non-conformist" requires the ability of one to ignore the stares and opinions of others. Most people conform because they don't want to "stand out". In fact the underlying meaning of the word "normal" is whatever (the vast majority of people) do or have in common.
If someone is easily offended by having people stare at them, make unflattering comments, or judge them for their appearance they are probably better off trying to "fit in" rather than "stand out".
Onlookers are often taken aback when a non-conformist person gets "angry" or acts rude because people are staring at them. They feel this person should have (realistically expected) this reaction.
As beautiful as it is to talk and think in terms of how the world (ought to be) human beings are naturally judgmental of other human beings. For instance the image of the woman you used with this question would not get hired (most) corporate jobs in America no matter how smart and talented she was!
Unless one is in the entertainment or arts related industry they're not likely to applauded for being too "individualistic". :-)
There's no age limit to crazy hairstyle It all depends on how comfortable you feel and how well you can pull it off. If you are confident and it makes you happy, don't worry about what others might think or say. There are lot of people out there who look for chances to criticize, mainly to cover up their own inadequacies, and we don't need to pay heed to them. As long as your job allows it, there's no problem getting your hair done the way you want. At times, if you want to cover your hair, you can always consider a scarf or a bandana
Why would you want to die your hair pink? When I see people with rainbow colored hair my first thought is they're looking for attention.
It was my oldest sons idea actually. I told him no at first, but then thought to myself what would it hurt. I guess just like people dye their hair brown or blonde.
But those are normal hair colors. People don't stare at you when you die your hair a color that humans are naturally gifted with. One day my son and I were out for breakfast and an older couple came in. They both had pink hair and looked ridiculous!
I don't know what happened to my answer because it wouldn't submit, so I'll try again.
Peeples, under most circumstances I would say "go for it if it makes you happy", but I just got finished answering your question about going back to college. If you are going back to college, I would advise against it. I know that professors are not supposed to judge their students, but the pink hair could cause you to come across to some of them as immature. While it should not, it could affect how they feel about you and in an indirect way, affect your grades. Education is expensive.
If you want to play around with pink hair, you can buy sprays that go on over your natural color and shampoo out. I would try a spray before I did anything permanent to my hair. You might find that the color is unflattering to your skin tone.
Want to know a secret? Back when I was college age (the first go-around) I had my hair hot pink, purple, and blue at different times, but it was always a rinse that shampooed out. Never green, though.
I've seen plenty of older people who dye their hair, have piercings, wear unusual clothes... it's a personal choice. I even saw an old granny with purple hair once! It's up to you. Are you wondering if it's unnacceptable to yourself or to others, or are you worried about how it'll look at work etc?
I guess it depends on if your style goes with it. If you wear conservative type clothing then it wouldn't match and it would just look stupid, but if you have more of a hip type of lifestyle and clothing I think it will be OK. That's just my opinion. I've seen even older people pull it off. I remember an art teacher I had and she suited it because of her personality and the way she dressed.

Consciously, we may or may not want to admit being racist. Unconsciously though, I personally believe that there is no such thing as a race being "equal." Call me racist or whatever, that isn't the point. The point is, that there HAS to be a "best." That's why people have...

I feel like I'm losing me. And I don't know who's taking my place. Or how to get myself back. Or if I should even try to hold on to me?

Are many social labels just providing excuses for unacceptable behavior?A moody person is now called bi-polar. You can get disability for this. An idiot behind the wheel now suffers from "road rage". It seems like a lot of labels make the offender , now the victim.
