Gray Expectations – Gray Chic- 4

So, who would have thought that gray is the new black? It seems to be among the young Hollywood crowd. If Pink can sport it, why can’t I? Seriously, how cute is this? I know, I know it’s Pink and she’s 20 years younger, and a rock star.  But  still, it seems Hollywood is jumping on the silver hair bus. You think they’ve been reading my posts? Have I started a trend?

I have to say, I find this fascinating. What do you think? I’m thinking I’m a lot more hip than I gave myself credit for. (My kids will likely laugh when they read that line.)  If these young girls are jumping on the silver bus, than this gal is driving!

Although, I can’t imagine any reason young girls would want to go silver – it may have something to do with the cougar thing. Perhaps younger girls actually want to look older. If that’s the case, hell has frozen over!

As I move forward in this journey, it’s nice to know I’ll have some younger company. Let’s see who wears it better.

 

 

Here’s to a positive spirit that never tells your age!

Discussed this topic at length with my hairdresser yesterday. She just colored her hair lavender with gray undertones. Very interesting on her 30 something face. We did leave my gray/white hi-lights around my face peeking through in response to our/your discussions. Not ready to dive into gray….but enjoy your nudging….:)

Deb, I have my first “going gray” appointment next week. It will be interesting to see what she does. She always works magic with my hair, so we’ll see what she has up her sleeve. You know I’ll be posting pics!

[…] dismissed societal pressure and I’m doing something that isn’t popular or trendy, or is it? The Libra in me likes things orderly and neat. That gray part of my hair coming in isn’t […]
