I realized tonight at Josh and Magenta's place that if I went to work with glowing yellow-orange hair, I'd have the same conversation all day tomorrow at work. I gave it a quick rinsing over with a light brown when I got home to take the edge off. Perhaps at some future date (perhaps soon even) when it's not the first day back after two weeks off work, I'll plan and prepare my colleagues for such a change. But just as we don't like it when Mr. Fezziwig suddenly implies that he might be retiring as director, I don't like blindsiding my coworkers after the holidays. Light brown is far less shocking than yellow.
