So beautiful. I hope I look that great in my grown-out white hair.Muah!
The women here look fantastic. Inspired!
Oh wow, that was quick, Denise! Thanks once again for including me - I'm honoured to be a part of this esteemed group of gorgeous greys! :)
Thanks for allowing me to use your beautiful picture Noelle - love all these inspirational greys x
Came here from that luckymag site,what a joke ,one of the most beautiful women with grey hair (and a wonderful cut!) Emmy Lou Harris,I love beautiful grey tresses,so sophisticated and so sexy!
Thanks for the lovely inspiration to be ourselves! After many years of trying to please others, I am letting my hair grow out and it is lovely. I really like it and that is the important thing. Accept me as I am or not at all. I really no longer care. Isn't that a GREAT feeling? What freedom!
Bravo, fantastic rare and unique color not to be "reproduce" by fake dyes
Thankyou so much youve all inspired me .After not being able to use hairdyes anymore after allergic reaction was terrified and upset .But now half my grey hair is in and cant wait for it all to come in .you all look so classy and beautiful xx
I'm almost halfway through growing my hair dye out as I'm fed up with the monthly roots and feel confident enough to be myself and go grey. My husband keeps looking at my hair (in a bad way) and I have to keep reminding him that I'm on a mission and I'm going to grow it all through! The coloured dry shampoo is really helpful at the stage I'm at! Great blog.Thanks.
Just starting my journey. Stopped coloring a month & a half now. So glad to have found your site :) Scary,since I live in a resort area & people get all sorts of stuff done to themselves! I am 56 & just want to be free! I will be looking at your site a lot just for encouragement & ideas. All the ladies are gorgeous! And I think everyone looks so much better with their God given color. Thanks for the inspiration!
Gray is a beautiful colour ! Amla helps to mildly and naturally deepen the gray and maintain its beautiful condition.
I love this blog! I quit coloring at the end of September and pics like these keep me motivated. It's really awkward growing out but I can't wait for the end result. Thank you!
Very inspiring - I pinned a few pics of these gorgeous women! I've been letting my hair grow out for a few months now, just had about 2.5" of the darkest brown color cut off.
I am 44 and have been feeling sooooo old and so ugly recently. I had a baby 2 & 1/2 years ago and after the birth I really seem to have aged. I stopped dying my hair (I had found the first white hairs before I was 20) and it has made me feel and look even older- BUT i have to say that this site has really given me a boost tonight- thank you. It´s great to see so many lovely looking -natural- older women.
Thank you for your comment 'Anonymous'! The women in this gallery are all so beautiful - and there are so many different grey patterns - all unique which makes it so special x
Love your blog! I think you are right, the revolution is coming. Once big companies realise there is money to be made it will become more normal to see grey women.....that will be great but how sad that accepting grey as the norm for women will only happen once marketing and money are involved!
That's true 'Anonymous' - it's about the money, money, money! But we are trailblazing the way! x
Ps these women look amazing, confident and relevant. They have inspired me to embrace the grey when my time comes!
They all look amazing, don't they! x
These incredibly beautiful, inspiring ladies have encouraged me to go forward with my decision to stop coloring my hair and allow it's natural beauty shine through. There are so many damaging chemicals in hair dye that are actually permeating our brains...Gorgeous Greys Unite!!
Love this page. It has given me so much encouragement to keep going. Been growing out my peroxide blonde for over a year now, found it a long road, and you do have to be ready and very determined!! Just a few more months and all dye will be gone. Thank you for your advice Denise.
I'am depressed. Ageing is so cruel for almost all of us. Gorgeous women will look good no matter what color of hair they have, that's for sure.
Dear anonymous-- I often feel the same way about "gorgeous women" and cited the grey haired icons to my daughter when she talked about short haircuts ("they have perfect bone structure, eyes, cheeks, full lips, blah blah) but the fact is, the women in these pics are real -- like you and me. Look closely. They're happy and radiant because they are liberating themselves from artificiality. They are not model-gorgeous--they each have lovely features they have enhanced with the right haircut/makeup/glasses/clothes color/hair accessories. A little touch goes a long way. I found this site while looking for the best clothing colors to compliment my greying hair. Also, I associate with friends and family who compliment me on everything. Nay-sayers beware--I have no time or inclination to hear "Oh, Cat I loved your hair when it was that reddish color." "Gee Cat your hair is so ...ummm light---I liked when it was darker" etc, etc, etc. And I say, "You know I liked it too. But I didn't like all the time and money and aggravation spent keeping it that way." Happily, I always get the last word because I am confident about my place in life. Hang in there ladies--find your very special look and ignore any negative comments
i have just discovered your blog through pinterest in my search to see what i can do with my hair...keep it long, cut it off, anything but colour it!! love all these beautiful ladies!!
Hi, I'm 46 almost 47 and have recently made the decision to grow out my grey hair. I have been dyeing it brunette for years and have very pale skin and blue-grey eyes. I recently had my dyed hair lightened to blur the skunk line whilst I'm growing it. Even this new artificially lightened hair is a shock to me! It is a difficult process and brings up all sorts of emotions but I'm determined to stick with it. Thank you to all the amazing and truly real and beautiful women on this site, you keep me going, my inspiration! PS: I will post my picture once I have transitioned fully - watch this space!
So glad to have found your blog! I've been on this trip for a month and blogging too. You can see my photos there (gogreygirl.blogspot.com) and on Instagram (@blairelyspalmer). I totally agree with lots of what you are saying especially about feeling like other people will think I've let myself go when the complete opposite is true! I've never cared more about my hair! Anyway, you are great. Really inspiring.
I am glad to have found this wonderful site! The women are so beautiful with silver hair. It's not customary to have gray hair In our country. They say: "This woman does not take care of herself." And I'm so tired to dye my hair every month ! And I decided to grow a gray hair. In a month I will go to the hairdresser to trim my hair dyed previously. I want to be free )
I decided to go grey a month ago and christmas was a trying time. My family think I'm crazy for wanting to "look old"! This sight is really inspiring!

Hello there,I stumbled on this by accident but definitely admire all the lovely ladies with silver hair. I have a silver beard myself and get many compliments. Glad to see that more people are tired of hiding the beautiful silver color. Best of wishes to you all!
Thank you for the inspiration! Having a wardrobe that was heavily skewed toward those autumnal colors which looked great with my deep, rich brown tresses, I was a bit skeptical about trying "cool" colors. Losing 25 pounds meant I needed to either embrace the "baggy" look (no, thank you!) or purchase a few articles of clothing for this phase of my weight loss journey. It was so liberating to realize that I can now wear those "cool" colors that I formerly eschewed. I could hardly believe the difference it made in my attitude toward my gray hair, which I now see as a glorious asset, to wear these new colors. I plan to purchase some gorgeous scarves that incorporate these new colors so that I can get some mileage out of some of the "old"-colored clothing... as well as the "new". Again, THANK YOU!
Thank you for the beautiful photos of all the lovely ladies. I am 57 and have been colouring my hair since the age of 15 or thereabouts. It was never about the grey but rather about "spicing"up my plain brown hair. Then the grey starting making an appearance and I became a slave to hair dye. A couple of years ago I asked my then hairdresser when would be the right time to stop colouring. Her answer was " If you have to ask, you're not ready." I continued to colour although I was not enjoying the process anymore and began to resent the time spent hiding the grey. I coloured my hair for the last time in February 2016 and hated it. It looked so unnatural and I felt uncomfortable with a full head of dark hair. A few weeks later I bought the product Color B4 and removed the dye from my hair. It left my hair much lighter in colour and very yellow and brassy looking. I washed it three times over the next three days using LÓreal Silver shampoo and used Osmo Silver conditioner. They removed most of the yellow brassy tones. I cut my hair shorter than usual in March and April to hasten the process. I am fortunate in that my hair grows quickly.I am using a nourishing shampoo and conditioner from L'oreal and their silver shampoo once a week or so. So far I am very happy with the condition of my grey hair and the grey colour itself. I still have a far way to go but I can already say that I will never colour my hair again. I love my grey.
Good day to all.I'm going on 46 and for the last month or so I have been considering seriously going gray. I cheer myself up all the time about it and I have found this blog... I am stunned. All of you look SO, SO GOOD. Sometimes younger, sometimes probably your own age but, definitely more beautiful than before.It is so encouraging. I still don't know how it will turn out, though I take courage since I feel some things are to my advantage: I am half Asian and my eyebrows are deep black, I love strong colours and I am not afraid of bold make up. I am not afraid either of cropping my hair short (being there already quite a few times) to accelerate the process and I am curious about how my hair really is. I have like "spots" where hair is completely white, silver diamantine white, mostly round my face, temples and brow.Let's hope my courage doesn't desert me and I can bear the social pressure, men younger than me go gray without trouble so why shouldn't I?Love all, you beautiful ladies!
What a great work Denise... congratulations!Dear ladies,I have being in the grey process for 3 months.Daring to go gray is a difficult and challenging decision and process, but does not mean stop being conceited, stop taking care of our hair or adopt the witch style. I'd say it's the opposite. Until we reach the desired length or style, we must be even more careful with our hair and periphery areas and keep it hydrated, nourished and with the best haircut possible to help cope with the difficulties faced at this stage.I'm always looking for options. I use natural products, oils and mixtures in order to keep my hair healthy and beautiful as possible.What do you think about this?How do you deal with this issue?
Can you tell me what causes yellowing in the ends of gray hair? Is it shampoo? From the roots to the center of head, it gray. Can you also give advise me on products to use. Thanks, Pat
The gorgeous women in the photo gallery are such an inspiration to me as I struggle to grow out my box-blonde hair. Merci!
I'm 62 and I've been coloring my hair blond for so many years now and I'm heavily gray/silver/white under it but still showing more dark at the roots than white. I had thought I would wait to stop the coloring process if/when my hair went white or as close to white as possible, but I think I'm going to use up the tubes of color I currently have and then stop. I think if a woman's face is in good shape, young looking without too many wrinkles, lines, sags, etc. then going gray is fine - many of the women in the above gallery I think are that way. I've got lots of lines, fine and otherwise and some sagging under my chin and neck that gray will age me 10 years very quickly, hence my reluctance to stop coloring. Also, my hair is long and naturally curly with a layered cut. It looks terrific right now though it's time to do color again, but I'm loving it at the moment. I'm afraid I'll hate the gray variations as it grows out, but I'll give it a go soon enough. Thanks for this site - it's lovely and encouraging!
