Am I too old???

I am 28, I am the momma of 3 kids and while sitting waiting for my son to get his hair cut I saw this really cool style, this gal had darker hair and had about 10 or so highlights in purple, blue, yellow, red, white. I loved it. I never go get my hair done. I have a reddish orangish with a hint of brown color I hate! What do you ladies think about these highlights on a 28 yo mom? They were under the 1st "layer" of hair so they weren't pop out at you dramatic! Could I get my hair colored and get the highlights? Thanks all :)

  • IMO it's not very "mom-like" and if I were to see what I'm imagining, I would think it's a trashy look! I know you're ONLY 28, but you're a mom, I think your style should reflect the look of other moms in your age range.

  • Don't listen to anon, she obviously has something stuck up her butt!

    Get what you want, because you are never too old to live.  Your style should reflect YOU, not other moms.

  • I'm a 34yo mom of 6 and I just got my hair dyed black with purple and green fringe around my face and I love it. Everyone at the salon thought it was great looking. Be yourself and have fun. The great thing is the colors are usually semi permanent so you can always change it with relative ease. Good luck!

  • You are never to old to have stylish hair! I love the bold highlights and the more dramatic looks. It makes you look like you actually care about yourself and your keeping yourself up! However, I do think the blue, purple and pinks should be left to the "tweens", any older than that , your going to look like your going to a Halloween party.

  • Well hell I guess that says it all, I am going to rock out with my multi colored hair, stand tall and proud and not care what pru ass mommas think just because I don't fit there ideal mom mold. I have never done anything so bold and well I think its about time, Halloween here I come lol

    Thanks to all you others who just gave me the courage to do it!! My hubby likes the idea too :)
