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 need a little 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 actually a blogger but a compilation of photos of bloggers and 40+ women who are embracing grey. Lots of inspiration here. A very cool feed!





Lisa Hale is a model/stylist with signature look you won’t forget: thick, wavy grey hair, strong dark brows and bold, red lips. Fab!





U.K. Instagrammer Shayne Brodie has pretty, long gray hair and a million dollar smile that will knock your socks off!





Janis Lyn Johson has timeless, understated style and classic long gray that makes her a wholesome beauty.





Does Beth Djalali look familiar? Beth is one of my Styleblazers and continues to wow everyone with her chic, angled bob and classic, colorful style with a modern twist.





Creative and eccentric, Sarah James Adams makes for an interesting follow with over 62.5 k followers on Instagram.





Susan Street shows you how to dump the frump and embrace your grey.  Check out her Instagram and my Styleblazer interview with her.




On the way to grey? Check out this creative, curly haired Instagrammer who combines art and style.




Her silver locks are modern and elegant. Meet another of one my Styleblazers, Josephine Lalwan.





Dramatic and edgy- That sums up Lyn Slater’s fabulous grey hair and high fashion style. Don’t miss my Styleblazer interview The Accidental Icon.  




Hat’s off to a lady who made the transition from red to grey and blogged about it. Scroll down on her Instagram feed to see her before and afters, and check out my Styleblazer with Judith Boyd.





Fit, healthy, stunning. That’s Instagrammer Hillary B. She has the kind of long, grey hair that many of my readers lust after.

  1. 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 2 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 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.

  2. Hi Deborah,

    Thank you so much for the great blog post and sweet comments! I’m extremely humbled by this and also thankful for people (like you) I’ve gotten to know and follow in this lovely community!

    Much love,
    Lisa Hale XO

  3. I loved this post of 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!
