Gray Gorgeousness


I imagine you’ve noticed how beautiful women are with a full head of grey, or white hair? The photo above is of my sister-in- law Laura Summa whose hair I covet. She is 50, and is one of the lucky ones whose hair grayed quickly, leaving her blessed with gray gorgeousness.

As for my own hair, I am a gray-hair-wanna-be whose head is probably only about 25% gray (it’s hard to tell actually). I have been highlighting my hair since college and feel at this point, that it probably looks better highlighted, rather than darker and partly gray. Maybe, maybe not. I am excited to go gray because I know that it is going to be very freeing, and come as a relief. Plus, I just want to be who I am :-)

I’ve been wondering about this though: When I do acquire more grey hair, and want to stop highlighting, how do I go about weaning myself off hair color? I mean, is it going to be like getting off crack? (just kidding). So out of curiosity I found this fabulous site called Going Gray Looking Great that offers lots of good advice and support- including a whole section about transitioning into gray.

In closing I want to leave you with this link to Style List that Chris sent in of grey and white-haired celebs whose silver locks are redefining great style. Thanks Chris.

I also found these other great pics.

So how ‘bout all you beauties? I’d love to hear how you feel about going gray.

  1. Louise,
    I love this Gray Gorgeousness! Speaking of Gorgeous, your sister-in-law is Beautiful!
    Her gray hair is so pretty!
    I am not sure when that day will come for me when I stop coloring my hair, but it certianly will be freeing!

  2. I noticed my first few greys at about 19-20 yrs old and then started coloring after college. If I hadn't started coloring then I would have had the Bonnie Raitt/Ann Bancroft white patch by 25. I stopped coloring about 6 mos ago (at 47) and because my hair is short, after only 2 hair-cuts all the grey is revealed!! Now, I'm not completely gorgeous grey like your sister-in-law (which does look fab!!!), I'm more the Jamie Lee Curtis mix of light/grey & dark, with the front being the lightest and darker on the sides & back. And I've got to tell you, the overall response from everyone has been positive, so that made my decision all that much sweeter!

  3. Karen, I can't wait to see your salt and peppa! I bet you look gorgeous....you've got me thinking. As I said before, my coloring is my last holdout. My mom went naturally gray in her 40's, just as I would be. I may be getting ready for a new look...au naturel! Thanks, Lou, for bringing all this out in the open! Authenticity...my post for today:) Have a glorious day gals!

  4. Thank you for the link! I was going to transition via sage tea "coloring," but I'm still at a bit of a loss. I don't like what my natural color has become in my late 30s. I'm struggling with what to do and haven't yet made up my mind, but I do know that I'm tired of all the blond highlights, the cost and the damage to my hair. And really, I haven't been blond for probably a decade now. Why pretend?

    I must put this lovely new site on my sidebar so that I remember to check it more frequently! I'm so glad you decided to start this project, Louise. It just couldn't have come at a better time for me (and it is all about me, after all! bwahahahah).
