Grey Hair
My mother is worried because she is starting to get grey hair. It is rather noticeable because she has black hair.

She's never coloured her hair in her life and is now thinking about covering up the grey. I have a problem with this because she looks absolutely wonderful with grey hair. Hard to explain but she looks even more glamorous than she did before. She’s always been beautiful but the grey hair even adds to her beauty. I think it looks great.



DO you all find that grey hair adds a sort of aura of sophistication?

yes and no..it really depends on the person..to some it adds sophistication and signals an acceptance of self and to others its looks drape, mousy and grandmumsy.

i agree with Hanne - it totally depends on the person. an older lady with a perfect grey bob hairdo can look so amazing. equally some grey haired men can look excellent.

I think it depends on whether you age well or not...

If its taken care of, trimmed, conditioned I think it can look just as good as any hair colour.

What I can't stand is when little old ladies get those rinse's - I think they look terrible

I think that it also depends on the color of grey. Some ladies/men look wonderful with a silver color hair. I personally do not like the dull grey color on people, but silver can be glamorous/distinguished.

Hers is a very nice grey/silver.

I'm going to make sure that she doesn't touch it

A lot of times I think it can be frumpy, but other times I think it can look really sophisticated. Some people can pull it off and some can't. Older model, Carmen, looks amazing with grey hair...

Is Grey Hair Great? Yay or Nay
Grey Hair : yay or nay?

my mums had grey hair since she was about 18 and she always gets lots of commments on how good it looks or lots of stares which she presumes are bad....

but what do you think about grey hair? do you think is it chic and fashionable or do you think it resemble old age, and do you think you should cover it with dying your hair??

I love grey hair! I truly hope when I get older that I have a full head of beautiful silver/grey hair.
