Times have changed………….

Posted on | Posted in Discrimination

Part of the reason for going for the different hair styles was to judge people’s perception of me. So far, as mentioned in earlier blogs, it’s all been positive. I’ve had many compliments and as a woman of a certain age, you take as many compliments as you can get!

Seriously, as a mature female, you notice people noticing you less. You become almost invisible. However, with a multicoloured mohawk, you suddenly become visible again – I love it!  You do have the odd occasion where people talk to your hair rather than your face, but I can live with that. There hasn’t been much of a divide between age ranges other than younger people have called my mohawk, “well sick” and people closer to my age have commented, “I used have one of those in my punk days!”

It’s testament to how times have changed. Although, would someone employ me in a new job with this hairstyle…………………………. Any how, I feel a change coming on……. what shall I have done next?
