Hard as it is to believe there was once a time when those who colored their hair were looked down on by "respectable" women. Some would sneer, "She gets her color out of bottle, you know." Making it sound like that was a bad thing.
In any case, it's certainly true that coloring your locks can change the way you look. It can revitalize things taking them from boring to fresh and new. Which is why so many of us have wholeheartedly embraced coloring our locks. You just want to make sure the change is for the better.
