I used to wear my hair like this until I was about 35. Then I either had straight short hair or a perm.
I recently got tired of short hair and perms.
So this is my current style.
It is easy and I can roll it if I want to or just stroll off with it wet. It looks about the same.
My gray shows up when it is straight, but I don't notice it. If anybody else does, they are standing beside my chair picking through it. I was pretty amazed the first time that happened. Kids would do it, but I guess some didn't get over it when they grew up.
