Ten days maybe a long time in politics but it’s nothing when you’re transitioning. Just ask Caitlyn Jenner. The toner used by Charles Worthington to give my hair more of a silvery sheen was only temporary, and so now I’m back to Gronde (grey-blonde). Though I’m still happy with the overall, more natural effect and liking Philip Kingsley’s Pure Silver shampoo and conditioner. At London Fashion Week today, I got into a lift with one of my Grey Haired Heroines: Vogue’s Sarah Harris. I tried my best not to give her the Hair Stare, but it wasn’t easy – Harris’ long platinum locks are ace. This reminded me of an incident, many years ago when I was new to the whole fashion week thing. Unaware of the etiquette, I jumped into the back of one of the sponsored people carriers and asked (as the vehicle pulled away) if it was OK to share a lift to the next venue. At the time, as we drove from one side of London to the other, I wondered why the Vogue Team weren’t very friendly – it’s only now with hindsight that I appreciate car sharing at fashion week isn’t a thing. I had practically hijacked Vogue’s private vehicle. Oops, awkward.
After the show, I saw Grey Haired Heroine number two: Bergdorf Goodman’s Linda Fargo leaving the building. Even under an umbrella, in the pouring rain, I could spot that shiny silver bob a mile away.
Oh and thank you to those people who have sent me messages about problematic email updates. I’ve had this checked out and, apparently, it’s working OK, now. This may sound a bit obvious but the best thing to do is to check junk mail to see if the update is there. If it is, then add firstname.lastname@example.org to your email address book.
