I've been going back and forth about dyeing my mostly grey hair since this post. I stopped dyeing it for quite awhile and was quite grey.
Emmylou Harris is a popular example of gorgeous grey hair. She also happens to be gorgeous. Regular people don't look like this.
Helen Mirren. Also gorgeous.
Grey hair is very cute if your face looks like you're 12 years old.
I think my grey hair would look more like this.
The best solution for me right now is to have highlights and lowlights. I love Diane Keaton's hair! Her style in general is great and her face looks natural. I'm not a fan of plastic surgery.
That being said, Jane Fonda looks fabulous. I know this is a wig but isn't it great hair? This is from a movie called Peace, Love &Misunderstanding. Jane Fonda plays a free-spirit hippie grandmother living in Woodstock, New York. It's number one in my Netflix queue.
I also like colorful streaks. Sally's has some brush in streaks in great colors that wash out.
The problem that I have with grey hair is the same as the problem that I have with the diet industry. I call it "disappearing woman syndrome". Women in our society disappear as they age. In some ways it's a relief. I'm glad to not be so self-conscious. I'm glad not to hear whistles and weird kissing noises when I walk by creepy men. But I wasn't really prepared to disappear completely. I know grey hair is just a superficial part of the process but I think if you are going to have grey hair you can't go bland with it.
Keep some drama in your look!
Be your own kind of beautiful.
