Fifty Shades of Gray (HAIR!)

Posted by Rhonda Sanderson on February 13, 2015 at 3:25 PM

Tony_WalkerYou know times are changing when everyone who used to hide even seven gray hairs is now doing their best to grow them all out!  Talk about 50 shades of gray!  There are at least that many shades and tones, genuine and fake, seen on heads everywhere today.

Be honest! How much better did Meryl Streep look in the Devil Wears Prada in that fabulous, high styled white wig she wore as the Vogue editor-like Miranda Priestly?

Better than her natural self that’s how much.  Nothing says glamour like gray hair on a young unlined face.  Or on an old unlined face for that matter. How you get there is your business.   

Yes it’s the perfect time to talk about 50 shades of gray especially at the point where you are half and half. That’s the deciding “hump” period. Can you stand it? Do you really want to rush to the salon to cover that aging half of hair that’s making you feel 100? Or can you hold out another five months or so and wait until it’s all there and just gorgeous?

In fact how many women or men even, will admit that they check each day in the mirror to see if their roots are still salt and pepper or is the hair finally coming in a fabulous steel gray or white color?e half and half. That’s the deciding “hump” period. Can you stand it? Do you really want to rush to the salon to cover that aging half of hair that’s making you feel 100? Or can you hold out another five months or so and wait until it’s all there and just gorgeous?

The latter is so coveted that even the youngest generation tries to achieve it with new high end commercial color products that must come out of some new age laboratory. Years ago brunettes sprouting some salty colored hairs would rush to the salon and have color applied. It usually ended up looking like they dipped their heads in a bowl of ink.

Which one is right for you? Or have you been blessed with nary a gray hair in your head?
