I have Golden blonde (Fair) hair, and during the aging process, I will most probably turn White having a Swiss/German/Kiwi/Irish/American background nowhere near the UK. It’s amazing, right! I was born in 1966 (where over here in Australia) lot’s happened being such a Young Country finding its Feet.
