Celebrities With Gray Hair Styles

Color Gray Hair

Celebrity gray hairstyles . . . to go gray or not to go gray, that’s the question!

Gray hair styles are making news. Nicole Kidman made news when she showed up at the NYC premiere of her new film, Australia, showing the gray hair! Who woulda thunk it? Showing her gray roots, right out there for everyone to see!! Was it intentional? Looks that way wouldn’t you say? In Hollywood, to show this much gray hair at her age, (a meer 41) is rather unheard of . . . or is it?

Inside Edition aired a piece this week featuring, Anne Kreamer, the author of the book, Going Gray. I think I heard something a while back about this woman who did an explicit experiment concerning the opposite sex’s true perceptions regarding women with gray hair. Somehow I forgot to write it down and forgot to pick up the book.

In short, her experiment involves joining an online dating service where she posts two identical profiles in every way excepting her hair color. She photoshopped her own picture in both gray and brown hair and took her scientific quest to a number of different cities across country.

What an interesting experiment it turned out to be! Don’t miss it . . . I’ll leave that for you to read for yourself in Anne’s own words in an article More magazine featured.

On Inside Edition they were quick to point out a handful of celebrity gray hairstyles that have been showing up as of late. Actually, I loved Meryl Streep, with her silvery locks in, Devil Wears Prada. I think this great silvery-gray hair color, coupled with this fabulous gray hairstyle on Meryl, is the best look I’ve seen on her! It was tough deciphering whether it was or wasn’t a wig.

An interesting bit Kreamer shares in her story . . . “I was appalled to find out when I did the math that I had spent, over the 25 years that I had dyed my gray hair, $65,000!” According to Anne, more women are sporting a bold new look and saving lots of money doing so. If you want a fun read this winter to hunker down with, check out this book!

A heads up; Not all those gray-haired celebrity hairstyle beauties are wearing the natural gray hair mother nature has given them. Even gray hair can be greatly enhanced with rinses, color and bluing agents to give a brighter, more silvery shimmer!

Next time you place an order at Amazon take a peak at “Going Gray, Looking Great! by Diana Lewis Jewell,” she’s the guru on the topic. And if you want to stay current with what is happening with the celebs follow our Pinterest Celebrities Board.

  2. I’d like to see Jennifer Lopez or Nicole Kidman go gray gracefully. They would look stunning! Jennifer with dark hair and gray streaks. Nicole with graying-blonde.

  3. Regarding the frustration with the checkout cashiers asking about a senior discount if you have gray hair……..think again. If you had beach bunny hair, they’d still ask you that if you’re over 40. To a young kid, anybody over 35 is ancient…gray hair or not. And who cares what they think anyway? Like Check out Cashiers are the new Vanguards of grown up glamour and Hair fashion??? LOL….

  4. I am 51 and stopped dyeing my gray hair styles in my early 40′s because of bad allergies. I have got used to the gray and embrace it, but get so irritated with checkout cashiers asking me if I want seniors discount!! I don’t have old skin, and don’t look older than my age, but the thought is obviously “if you have gray hair you are ancient” Don’t they realise that most women over forty have grey hair, they just cover it up” Here is to a resurgence of women who are not afraid to show the “real” color of their hair! To all the gorgeous grays out there I salute you!!

  6. I went grey in my 20s; am now fed up with color gray hair and let it grow out. But trying to find products and haircuts that suit a young (ish) woman is almost impossible. Every hair stylist I go to gives me the granny style …. because my hair is GREY. Drives me crazy.

  7. The clear toning glaze that you have heard about is an in salon product. You cannot purchase it over the counter and if you could it would not tone the brassiness. Only in a salon setting can we use a glaze and add to it the toner needed to reduce any unwanted tones, such as brass. It is will worth the time and money to have this service done, especially if you are growing out your grey hairstyles.

  8. I have about two inches of graying roots and the rest of my hair is fading, medium brown, becoming very brassy. I have read that you can get a clear toning glaze that will tone down the brassiness without changing the gray hair styles, but cannot find any such thing or anyone who knows what I’m talking about…????
