Gray Beauty

Hypothesis: Telling a woman* that she (or her hair) is beautiful increases said woman’s subjective and objective sense of beauty.

4/7/12 Procedural Revision: Though I will continue to specifically target female GB for research, male GB (see Tim below) who request inclusion will not be denied or discriminated against.

Conclusion: At the conclusion of 100 candid photographs (posted below), proof of hypothesis will be self-evident.

Research Transcript: 

OBL: "Hello, I am conducting research for a project entitled, 
GRAY BEAUTY. May I take your photograph?"
GB: "Why?"
OBL: "Because your hair is gray and I think you're beautiful"
GB: (GB smiles)"Really?"
OBL: (snaps photograph)
