Well, my hairdresser rose to the challenge and stopped laughing long enough to come to my rescue. I think she came up with a resolution to my hair problem.
Works for me.
And it should be easy enough to maintain.
The colour is semi-permanent, which means it will gradually wash out so she can see how things progress as my hair grows out more. She doesn't want me to be a slave to colouring. I couldn't agree more.
But right now, I absolutely needed to have some colour brought around my face.
Of course, as I look at this photo, I could just start wearing more red! (That's something I was told a gazillion years ago and did for a brief while too. Perhaps I'll get back to that.)
