Poll: Should Women Over 30 Do Crazy Hair Color?

Do You Think Women Over 30 Should Avoid Out-There Hair Color?

In a recent appearance on her mother's show, The Talk, frequent hair-color-changer Kelly Osbourne had a few things to say about thirtysomethings and out-there hair color. "To me, I'm 27, I've got three years left, the way I look at it, to have fun with it," she explained, adding, "Because once you're 30, you look like a right idiot walking around with like rainbow, bright color hair." While it may be a big ouch to tricenarians, even 37-year-old cohost Sara Gilbert seemed to agree with Kelly.

And even though the majority of stars tend to have wild strands in their teens and 20s, some, such as Drew Barrymore, Juliette Lewis, and even Julia Roberts, have opted for colorful looks in their 30s and beyond. But what do you think? Do you tend to agree with Kelly on this issue, or should women express themselves however they want, regardless of age?

I'll be 38 in just a few weeks. I'm a mom of 2 teenage boys, I work in a professional atmosphere & I proudly rock some blue & black hair every single day! That is, until tonight... tonight I decided I wanted a change so I'm switching it up & going for black to red ombre with fat red streak through my fringe, running down into the side of my face framing. I'm also covered in tattoos, which I love & have spent quite a bit of money on. Speaking of which... whatever happened to all of Kelly's tattoos? Fickle girl. Clearly the LAST person anyone should be taking fashion advice from.   PS - Kelly... please eat something, dear. When you started losing the weight, I was happy for you. But you didn't need to lose so much. You were cute as hell. Now you look like a bobble head doll with a really bad dye job!

@Annie Tomlin I think it's mainly because of me. I made her go red and she ended up liking it. I'm the quirky one. I'm always daring her to do crazy things because otherwise she'd stay in a box of safety. That and I won't let her go grey until I'm 40. Ha ha ha. Our birthdays are 10 days apart and we can't be anymore crazy when we're together, if we aren't fighting! We're always making the other one do something they don't want to do. I made her do green nails once and she made me do burgundy (a color I dreaded, by the way.) That's us. My brother is a sore thumb whenever we bring him because he won't do anything with us! Males.

@Ellenora Your mom sounds like fun!

@Advah Agreed that women should do and wear whatever makes them feel good. And it's so weird that anyone would consider 30 even remotely old, much less "too old."

Kelly is a disgusting and a mean spirited person inside and out!

That type of comments is both pathetic and disgusting. And mysogynistic. Why "should" or "shouldn't" women do whatever they feel like doing? And why are those comments always directed at women instead of men? (not that I wish them that) It's just as annoying as when people women over 35/40/50/whatever shouldn't wear mini-skirts/bikinis/anything. If it makes you happy, go for it! Even more disappointing coming from Kelly Osbourne who often speaks against being bullied for her weight or appearance. Well in that case, let's just say she can't pull off a lot of her looks, and that's got nothing to do with her age. But guess what, that's my opinion and not some sort of rule. That made me cranky.

I think she's wrong. My mom is waaaaaaaaaaaay over 30 and she wears bright red like it's nothin'. Now, bright red may not be "crazy" in the scheme of crazy colors, but you don't know my mom. For her, going light brown needed convincing!

Oh, Kelly. I've seen many women pull off bright hair colors. Some are 18, others are 40. Age ain't nothin' but a number.

The fact that society tries to place these ridiculous rules on women over 30 is bs! I am 33 and still get carded when I pick up smokes for my husband and I am constantly mistaken to be 22-25. I think it depends on your individual situation. For example, I am a housewife, musician, and an alt model, so I see nothing wrong with my newly colored purple hair. If you are a lawyer or something of the sort than no, crazy hair won't fit, but that has nothing to do with age and rather your situation.
