A Luxembourg woman who fell into a pit of despair after closely examining her grey roots was miraculously saved when her fairy godmother appeared with a hair dye kit.
The woman, a 29-year-old resident of Ettelbruck, has been carefully counting the days until hair salons are allowed to reopen next week.
However, she had an important work meeting scheduled for Thursday morning, which caused her to spend extra time scrutinizing herself in the mirror the evening before.
“Until then, I’d been able to style my hair in such a way as to hide the grey,” she said. “But I was beyond that point. I needed a miracle. It couldn’t wait till Monday.”
“I must have accidentally said the magic word, because I shouted shit, shit, shit, three times,” she continued. “Suddenly there was a burst of light in my bathroom and a woman claiming to be my fairy godmother appeared with a box of hair dye, the little brush, the gloves, everything. She even put the color in for me and toweled my hair dry when she was done.”
“On Thursday morning at work I was feeling back to my normal self, and I’m very thankful to my fairy godmother,” she added. “But I can’t help but to think she’s kind of a bitch, because she’s one of those awful people who dye their hair silver as if to mock those of us with prematurely grey hair.”
