They say the hands give away your age more than any other body part. I disagree. Having gray pubic hair, or any pubic hair at all for that matter means you’re old. I’m old.
I mentioned my discovery to my young friend M and she was confused. “Wait, you have pubic hair?” her eyes boggled. It’s true, I have pubic hair. I’m bringing sexy back?
My colorist Julie at Sakura Studio in Oakland, who promises me I have just a few gray hairs on my head, was more understanding. She learned to color hair in Italy (go see Julie, she’s an artist). She often witnessed women leaving the salon with a doggy bag. In the bag was just enough hair dye so that the curtains would match the drapes.
I don’t need the doggy bag yet, but I’m prepared to move to Italy for the gelato and the pubic hair. Cue Justin Timberlake.
