ed is growing a few grey hairs and i tell you he has never looked more handsome. i'm a bit of a mess about my own grey hairs. i hide it pretty well, though honestly it's not that intentional since most of the grey is only visible when i pull my hair back. i'm not ashamed of the greys. i AM self conscious about it. as my hair gets longer and longer, i will soon be looking at a very grey ponytail. a grey-speckled ponytail at 28 seems a bit off-putting, though why should it?
i loved this article about a designer who decided to stop the frequent dye jobs and embrace her incoming greys. rather than covering it up, a colorist turned them into perfectly placed highlights during the grow out phase. maayan says, "that's how i know it was the right way to go: it feels like i just took off a mask, not like i am in a costume."
i can't say i'm brave enough to rock a grey ponytail just yet, but it certainly makes a beautiful statement.
