I’m 25 and what hair i have left on the side of my head is going grey. Such a shame because I’d be a silver fox

I’m in my 30s and have about a dozen gray hairs in my beard. Thankfully not much gray on my hair - but that’s because I will lose it all before it has a chance to gray 😭

I'm 25 and I have one silvery strand that I keep seeing. I'd like to think I earn the gray hair and wrinkles I get as I grow older

I found my first gray hair at my grandpa’s funeral last April. I now dye my hair pink. Do what you want (I was 31 when I found that hair but my mom has been dying the greys since her mid-20s)

Am I wrong in thinking that failing to follow up with a candidate after the initial phone screen (not the interview) is not a deadly sin? We talk to 30-40 people every week, and as much as we try, some people (especially the ones who show negative attitudes) do not hear back from us.
