Silver Foxes: 7 Grey Hairstyles That Rock
Perhaps there is no other signifier that instantly suggests – or is closely associated – with aging than grey hair. Hence the reason why some people still debate whether they should embrace their greying hair or delay grey at the roots by continuing to colour.
But there is a silver-lining to the grey hair dilemma.
While some of the obvious benefits of going naturally grey would be no more expensive colourist bills or harsh chemicals – one often over-looked factor would be the multitude of hair styles you can still wear. Embracing your grey hair does not necessarily mean you have limited options when it comes to styling.
Many women might opt to keep their grey hair short since it offers ease and less effort but even then, you can give a youthful vibe to your short grey hair. Going out at night for a big event is also an opportunity to explore other hair style options. Go for some edge and do something unexpected — and watch other heads turn.

There might a tendency for some older women to sport a gray-haired style which gently frames their face – and also to possibly cover fine lines. But when you have a strong jawline and nose like this award-winning actress, it makes for a dramatic and modern look to sweep it all back away from your face. While she could have also slicked it down – which would have worked with her masculine tuxedo look but perhaps a touch too harsh looking – she opted to keep it feminine with soft gentle waves.

This in-demand model (recently hired by CoverGirl and a past cover subject on Zoomer Magazine) is also a business woman, nutritionist and mother of Elon Musk, the self-made billionaire behind SpaceX and Tesla. She proudly shows there are no restrictions when it comes to styling gray hair. For an evening event in New York City, she sweeps her gray hair up into a pompadour hairstyle.

If you’ve ever seen the multi-Grammy Award winning country singer perform live, you will definitely believe gray is just another colour of hair and not have anything to do with age. She commands the stage with her guitar and dressed in jeans and white tank top – like any rock star – but her layered white hair glows like a halo.
