To Grey or Not to Grey? That is the question.

Jobseekers at Gen Plus often have questions about attacking the job market at 50 Plus. Interestingly, one question that keeps popping up has to do with dyeing their hair.

"I'm up for an interview at a corporation. I had let my hair go grey at my prior job. Should I dye it?"

Many of you blog-surfing are under 50. What advice would you give this candidate? (It is a woman.)

Last night I saw Joan Baez (remember her with long black hair!)being interviewed on television. Guess what? Her hair was grey and short. She looked great. I suppose that she is not looking for a job, though.
