Grey hair is official a trend. The color which signifies maturity, wisdom and aging gracefully is now a fashionable dye choice. It appeared on Jean Paul Gaultier’s Fall 2011 runway, on perennial trendsetter Kelis, at the Met Gala on Nicole Richie and on “The Fashion Police” by way of Kelly Osbourne. A style blogger, whose strands are naturally grey and were long before the trend took hold of the fashion industry, chronicles her hair journey on GorgeousinGrey.com.
Now, Rihanna is adopting the look with newly-dyed grey extensions (weave! weave! weave!). She announced it on her Instagram page yesterday alongside the caption “Grey is the new black.”
While her hair (weave!) is characterized as “icy grey” by some, and isn’t as light as her fellow grey-haired celebrities, it does make a strikingly beautiful statement.
If you’re a fellow lover of hair color, you may just be bored enough with red, blonde, black and brown to consider dying your hair grey. Or maybe you want a look that will ensure you stand out and start conversation wherever you go.
