The Silver Foxes of Instagram

My readers love to talk about Grey hair; whether you should keep coloring your hair or let your natural grey shine through? I think most of you would agree that it takes courage and perseverance to go completely grey, but it’s something a growing number of women are choosing to do… and they’re getting some beautiful results.

If you’ve been thinking of going grey and needing some inspiration, check out Instagram. Some of my favorite bloggers have liberated themselves from the dye bottle and couldn’t be happier.  I call these women the Silver Foxes of Instagram. Take a look.




This is not a blogger but a compilation of photos of bloggers and 40+ women who are embracing grey. Lots of inspiration here. A very cool feed!

  1. In 2019, I had a pace maker put in and could not raise my arms for a few weeks. My grey hair started showing more and more. As my hair grew out grey, I saw a new me! The actual grey/white color matched my skin perfectly, and I liked it very much! My original hair color was black, but after the grey hair started showing up I dyed it black but the black looked harsh against my skin. I tried all the browns, plain or with red highlights but nothing looked natural. To cover up the grey I continued to dye it. Now, my hair is white and long with bangs. I’m thankful for my Pace Maker and my perfectly white hair! 72 years old.

  2. I went white about 15 years ago (to me, it still looks “blonde”). I love it and get plenty of compliments. When I lost my hair two years ago, I thought it might come back another color, so I saved some. Fortunately, it came back the way it left. The funny thing is, I bleached my hair for most of my adult life, trying to get the color I have now. Go figure.

    PS – I’m 73 and read your posts regularly.

  3. Hi Deborah,

    Thank you so much for the excellent blog post and sweet comments! This incredibly humbles me, and thankful for the people (like you) I’ve gotten to know and follow in this lovely community!

    Much love,
    Lisa Hale XO

  4. I loved this post about all these marvelous ladies. I am in my mid-60s and have been coloring my hair for years. Not ready yet to take the plunge, although I am sure I will be one of these days! I think it must be very liberating!

It's your life. Make it Fabulous!
