This week, we noted a story about how even though gray hair seems to be trending—one lawyer interviewed for the story thinks law professionals, women in particular, are under pressure to look young and hide their gray.

So we'd like to ask you: Do you (or would you ever) dye away your gray hair for work-related reasons? Or do you think—or know—that something like that would never make a difference to your business acquaintances or potential clients? Mention with your answer whether you're a man or a woman and at least an approximate geographic location.

Answer in the comments.

Read the answers to last week's question: What’s the Wildest Excuse You’ve Heard from a Potential Juror in Voir Dire?

Featured answer:

Posted by ARog: "A judge in our court likes to tell about voir dire in a criminal trial where the charge was conspiracy to distribute cocaine base. The judge’s questioning went like this:

Judge: Does anybody on the panel know the defendant or any of the lawyers?
Prospective juror: I do.
Judge: Which person do you know?
Prospective Juror: The defendant.
Judge: How do you know the defendant?
Prospective juror: I bought crack from him.

The judge excused the entire panel."
