Because, apparently, this hashtag exists and it is almost for sure to say that it will become a hit.
To find the perfect shade of blonde is one thing, but to actually manage to make natural, grey hair look so cool is something only our super hipster grandmothers could. And, of course, these super duper women we haven’t met, but secretly admire.
Their grey hair might be one of the things we – without even realising – appreciate most. It takes balls and balls mean courage, and courage means confidence, and true confidence means accepting – embracing – yourself. And this doesn’t mean coloured hair, ironed hair, curled hair or pink hair is something other than whatever hair makes you feel yourself.
Or no hair.
For instance, I am not a beauty procedures freak, though there are a couple of stuff I absolutely adore (therefore highly recommend) and routines I don’t go to bed without. With hair, however… I play a lot with it and its shades of blonde (by myself). And think about it. Everyday, a lot of times a day.
And if you are a girl reading this (Hey, girl!) I bet, by now, you are already twisting it around your fingers, looking in the mirror or imagining some sort of shade or hair cut for yourself. Because this is what us, girls, are like. When it comes to our hair, there’s no one stopping us.
Try it tonight when meeting your girlfriend(s) or over the phone with one right now. You just have to say “My hair is kinda dry lately…” or “I’ve been thinking about cutting it for some time now…” and you’re into the loops of hair talk immediately. Irreversible.
There’s something deeper than we think with the hair thing.
Since I’m a girl, I can’t stop it. The newest entry in the grey hair divas sorority is Zoë Kravitz. I saw it on Instagram last night and got into the loop of signature greys. A loop so refreshing in a world where almost everybody dyes, there a few who couldn’t look any cooler. Sexier.
You with me? Come on!
Into the loop of natural, signature greys, folks. The serenity all of them and their hair colour are about to induce is just hypnotising.
Look at Sarah here.
Sarah Harris, British Vogue‘s fashion features director, started going grey when she was 16. She used to dye it brown, but then let it be and turned her long, grey hair into her signature look.
Linda Rodin, the stylist and skincare guru told the inthegloss.com: “I was lucky. And I never associated it with being old.”
Diane Keaton at the Golden Globes in 2014. The ever nonchalantly Diane Keaton.
Annie Lay. This gorgeous make-up artist I discovered just last night on Ig. I knooow.
Linda Fargo, Bergdorf Goodman’s senior vice president of fashion office and store presentation: “My hair started its color course when I was 10!” (Time Out).
Sophie Fontanel who does a very cool interview right here.
Iris Apfel once said that “It’s better to be happy than well-dressed!” or “Worrying about getting old is the kiss of death; you have to be busy and stay engaged.” and I won’t even start on it.
This is another post.
And, of course, George Clooney!
Don’t you feel calmer all of a sudden?
In an attempt to, maybe, look wiser – and succeeding, one might add – all of the below dyed it. Cool s*it. Hit.
