16 Instagram Beauties With Long Gray Hair

A while back, I posted inspiring photos of 40 and 50+ bloggers with long, flowing manes. Everyone loved them, and a few of you wrote in to ask, ” Where are the Silver Haired lovelies?”

Today I bring you 16 beautiful gray-haired Instagrammers who celebrate being a Silver Fox.



Donna Lee gray hair


Donna Lee is one of my Fabulous After 40 readers from Long Island, New York. She is 65 and grew out of her dyed, dark brown hair about 11 years ago. Donna says it was a big relief, as she used to dye it every three weeks. At first, she feared going gray would make her look old, but her husband talked her into it, and after a few terrible first few months, it came in looking like this- an interesting combination of silver black, and white! Donna, your hair is very pretty and I think everyone would agree, you look actually look very youthful in this color!



Yazmeenah Rossi is a 60-year-old model who was born in France and lives in Malibu. Her waist-length silver hair is her trademark and part of what has made her an Instagram star! Yazemennah started going gray at age 11. She has never tried to cover it and went white 10 years ago.

She believes in natural beauty products and keeps her hair shiny and sleek using organic shampoos. She is also a fan of letting her long full head of fabulous hair dry naturally.





Teresa, 50+ from New Mexico,  loves sparkles, fitness, family, and faith. Her sensational silvers locks are stunning and look beautiful with a swipe of pretty pink lipstick.



Hilary is a Florida model who probably looks familiar because she has appeared in so many ads and shows. Hillary encourages women to choose the sterling silver path as she has done. She swears You’ll never look back!



Who says long gray hair can’t look cute and fun? Just look at Elisa’s sweet mane of salt and pepper hair!  Don’t you love her feathery bangs, and how they accent her beautiful cheekbones and friendly face?



A health challenge prompted Nena to go for the gray. After losing her hair to breast cancer in 2015, Nena decided to embrace her new gray growth rather than cover it up. She let it grow out in its natural state, and the result was a gorgeous new look!


It’s been 12 years since Lynnie used any kind of hair dye, and she couldn’t be happier. She’s proud of her grays and loves inspiring others to embrace theirs too. In this photo, Lynnie is wearing her hair in loose waves, but don’t be surprised to see her in dead straight hair too. With her pretty face and blue-gray eyes, she can wear it any way she wants.


Here’s an exciting twist on a gray hair look. Tracy is in her gray transition stage at the moment. Her last dye job was in January 2020, so she’s on her way to silver fox status. In the meantime, she’s sporting an exciting mix of black/gray cornrow braids that is very creative and cool looking!



Armelle is a stunning Parisian silver hair model with a gorgeous glow that draws you in.  She believes less is more and prefers minimal hair and makeup for a chic silver fox look.



Mireya looks fresh and natural in wavy long silver hair that has life and energy.  Her natural tips add dimension, and the softness around her face flatters her features. She’s a natural beauty who sticks to a makeup regime of mascara and lipgloss, and it definitely agrees with her. ( More long curly gray styles here)



Carole is a mother of four living in Toulouse, France, whose beautiful poker-straight silver hair has gone un-dyed since February 2018. It’s not often you see great hair in such excellent condition – so smoothly, shiny, and super chic!



Vickie is a mom, actress, and model with a passion for gray hair.  She’s also a Brand Ambassador for a documentary called Gray is the New Blonde, which highlights women across the world who have chosen to forgo dye jobs and embrace their gray hair. It sounds like an award-winning film to me!



Lisa is a 58-year-old influencer known as the silver stylist. Her full, long gray locks are the stuff dreams are made of! If she’s not a silver hair model, she should be!


Caroline is a 55-year-old grey hair ambassador inspiring you to be your best self. This model, runner, and public speaker, loves motivating women our age to embrace our flaws as well as our strengths. Her stunning hair with the prettiest gray silver highlights frames her pretty face and is her crowning glory.



When you are an actress, singer, dancer, presenter, teacher, trainer, author, and speaker, you need to command attention. Such is the case with Donna, who turns heads with her artsy gray dreadlocks!  They’re fun, creative, and grab your attention! 


Sometimes it takes a couple of tries to get your nerve up to go gray. Mitzi tried going gray for a long time and did try it, but gave in and went back to coloring it once again. Then a year ago, she decided to try it again, and it stuck.

Mitzie says she enjoys seeing the grays come and has finally made it past the hard part. Now, there’s no turning back!

That’s just a few of the beautiful women over 40, 50, and 60 with long gray hair. You’ll find a few more silver-haired beauties here.  Do you have long gray hair you want to show off? Send me a picture, and I may post it. Email

  1. I decided at 55 to go grey. I’m 56 now, still struggling every time I look in the mirror, but I have no regrets. It’s so much healthier and longer. I got a ways to go, but by 57, I should be rocking it.

  2. I stopped coloring my hair about four years ago, and with the help of my bestie. Transitioning to silver was painless. I developed a reaction to my hair dye and having to dye my roots every two weeks was my push to go natural. All that’s left is 2″ of my highlights on the ends of my hair. No regrets!

  3. Since my youngest graduated high school, I had wanted to go natural/stop dyeing my hair. When I developed an allergic reaction to the dye, that was the excuse I needed. Though the transition was hard, I was so delighted when my hair came in with such pretty silver streaks that I grew it. I love it!

  4. All these women look stunning; I dislike the mature lady with brown Hair and orange roots; it’s not a good look.
    I understand a Lady might feel mature with silver Hair, but as a man sixty-six young, also when I was younger, a well-groomed head of silver Hair does turn head.
    Not that it matters. My Hair is gray, and I’m lucky it’s a full head and my own.
    Ladies, you all look Gorgeous x

  5. At 66, after being in hospital with covid, I decided to let the greys out and feel sexy and fabulously proud of my greys.

  6. All those women pictured are stunning beauties!!!!
    I am long grey hair myself. I love my hair just the way it is. No regrets soever.

    1. Your hair is fantastic. I let my hair grow white during covid, and I love it. How long did it take for you to get that length?
      Prof. Sheila Hanna

  7. All of these women are gorgeous! I embraced my silver(again) nearly two years ago and loved it. No turning back this time.

  8. Interesting to stumble across all these gray beauties. I started pulling gray hairs out at age 22. I decided to stop coloring 14 years ago at age 50 with the prompting of my hairdresser. I am interested in styling products that won’t yellow my bright whites and finding my perfect style!!

  9. I love this article. I, too, grayed early,16. I stopped coloring my hair after my youngest child was born. I’m so happy today at 62; women are being celebrated for being naturally beautiful, just like they are. I have a Pinterest Tulifts, and I write a blog I’d love to be featured as one of your loving gray-haired ladies!!!

  10. I loved seeing these women who have kept their long hair, I’m 48 (the new 28????) and love having long hair, and I feel better at 48 than I did in my 30s, although it’s because what’s inside that’s essential looking good also helps.

It's your life. Make it Fabulous!
