Grey Hair Still Trendy ?!




Grey hair is in and not just for those over the age of 50. After first showing up on the Fall 2009 and Spring 2010 runways, celebrities like Kate Moss, Kelly Osbourne and Pink began sporting grey manes. Most recent to jump on the grey haired bandwagon? Lady Gaga, who sports long grey locks on the September 2010 cover of Vanity Fair magazine. 




Having lasted almost a year, it seems that this trend is far from over. As Toronto Star reporter Susan Pigg reports, more and more 'regular' people are are requesting stylists help them turn their hair grey.




"Rosedale hair stylist Rita Renouf, 55, finds all this quite amusing, having spent decades fighting back grey before letting her own wavy locks return to their natural silver a few years ago. "It used to be that young girls hated my hair – I looked old. Now all of a sudden I'm finding that a lot of girls are very envious of my colour. I've never had 20- to 25-year-olds go crazy over my hair. But it's quite beautiful, I have to admit."



What do you think of this new trend? Would you consider highlighting or dying your hair grey? How long do you think this trend will last? Let me know in the comment section below.

  1. I've never been the trendy girl. AT ALL. I never really followed fashion.. Grey? It sound hidious to me. It can totally work on other people , that I'm sure, but not on me.. I'll have grey hair in my 40s or 50s.. now I'm okai with them being brown!

  2. This is so funny because I've had a thing for grey hair for a while now- everytime I get my highlights (my mum's a hairdresser), I beg for her to leave the toner in so it almost turns a violet/purple... it is the only way to keep the brassiness away! I'd rather have a grey/purple than a yellow/orange, you know?

  3. @ Whitney....Yes I know what you mean, I hate when hair is brassy. Have you tried using a violet shampoo? Thats supposed to keep the brassiness away.

    @Marie. Ya, Im not going grey anytime soon. Of all the people above, I think it only looks okay on Pink and thats because there hardly is any.

  5. Ok is the second one supposed to be katie holmes? I doubt it but it does look like her! @ Curves Ahead I think maybe a gray under-ness (you know when you see blondes with the black underneath) would look good /cool but i think it would have to be an almost platinum blonde /white gray or the gray-purple like kelly osbourne. Too much silver looks kinda weird there is no dimension! To me the first model looks like a dog! The gray makes the outer hair look like floppy ears, see it? Idk I'm not sure about this as an all over look, It seems like a matte trend to me. I think Kelly's is the only wearable look, if your daring enough! Thanks for reading I ranted a little! xoxo Camille @ NeverNaked.blogspot.com

  9. so....not into this! I dont see the appeal of having grey hair :( I think salt and pepper hair is REALLY hot on a man, but full on grey hair on a woman looks like you went to the beauty school to get your hair done blonde and they messed up! lol

  10. Oeee... No grey hair for me =D
    The 'ash blond' is quite OK, but the 'grandmother grey' isn't really flattering in my opinion =D

    Thank you so much for your comment! And yes, I draw or paint everything myself on my blog =D The header is done in aquarel ^^
    Btw, I checked out your dare to wear post! And actually I've already tried an inspired look a few posts ago =D

  12. Crazy GAGA can rock anything:) I personally don't think it would be the best on me. Oh, the purple shampoo is great though! I use it for my blonde hair to keep it ashy.
