I’m going to say something that some of you may not want to hear… I’m not big on gray hair. Sorry, I know it’s vogue to say how wonderful and sexy it is, but I feel it tends to wash them out on many women and make them look older.
Of course, there are some women with gray hair who look stunning. Still, I find that’s usually because the woman is usually so darn attractive, to begin with, that she could wear purple and orange striped hair and still look fabulous! She’s also the same woman the color industry labels as a winter or summer; the woman whose hair, when it turns gray, turns that striking silvery-white color instead of dull yellow-gray.
One such woman is a gal I met who had modeled professionally and then retired to have a child. Interestingly enough, this over-50 model was able to revive her modeling career simply because of her gorgeous gray locks! She’s one of those stunning silver foxes!
But that being said, I still feel that gray can be tricky to pull off. I know coloring your hair is a pain; yes, it is! And I know some of you say, who cares if gray makes you look old(er), you are not a young woman anymore. That is a perfect point! Fine, then go gray.
If you want to stay looking youthful (fresh, vibrant – not ridiculously young), think carefully before going that route.
I know I’m going to get some flack about this one, but that’s o.k. There is no right or wrong in this “gray area.” This is my opinion, and every thought has a right to be heard.
Everyone should do what makes them happy, so follow your heart. If you like gray hair go for it!
