I have short hair, I am 62 years old. But for the pandemic I decided to dry my hair. Kinda crazy but in 2021 I dyed purple. Dark purple. Now I want blu. A question? I need a hit cut! Should I get hair cut them dyed my hair? My hair is a medium brown. With a lot of silver gray rapidly making it's way. I wear long bangs, then cut over my ears. Not negative feedback please. All for fun.
