For so many years, having gray hair meant that you were old. The times are changing. Less and less women are dyeing their hair and embracing their natural gray or white hair. Guess what? It looks fabulous! There are even accounts popping up on social media to share photos in celebration of going gray, no matter what age you are.

It is normal for people to start getting gray hairs as early as adolescence. Many don’t get grays until their twenties or thirties and often dye their hair until they are “old.” Check out some of the amazing photos of gorgeous women going gray on the Instagram account @grombre. Their account is described as “a radical celebration of the natural phenomenon of gray hair.”

“As a kid growing up in your Mom’s hair salon you learn pretty quick that covering up greys is not only a way of life….for many many women and some men out there…it IS life. Now I specialize in turning my clients hair into highly expensive silver masterpieces and so when I began the journey of growing out my own grey hair 4 years ago I wasn’t sure what my clients would think of the master colorist….who doesn’t color!! But I was determined to love the hair God gave my like Proverbs 16:31 says that silver hair is a crown of glory! And so came my idea this past year to add a punch of my artistic talent in hair to my own beloved ‘Life Sparkles.’ I installed in some silvery hair extensions blended with a natural brown to give myself the ultimate ‘Silver Hairs growing into a Silver Ombré’…which I now realize can actually be called, quite perfectly,…..a #grombre “ @mistywindhairninja #gogrombre

One woman is a hairstylist who grew up in her mother’s hair salon. For many years, she saw men and women covering their gray hairs. Now, she specializes in giving clients silver hair masterpieces! The little peeks of gray look gorgeous against her dark hair.

Another woman shared that this is her first time in 34 years that she doesn’t have a drop of dye in her hair. Surprisingly enough, she says it is her favorite color she’s ever had! We have to agree that it looks amazing on her.

“I’ve been greying since the age of 13 and I’ve never dyed my hair. Furthermore, I’ve been growing it since 12 and I have entirely forfeited cutting it five years ago. I’m profoundly happy with the way it looks. The colour and the length combined are one of my favourite attributes. Never have I ever felt like it made me look older! Instead it gets me the sweetest and most magical compliments, some of which I’m sure you’re familiar with: looking avant-garde, otherworldly or like a fairy, an elf, or Frozen-Anna. My current life on an organic farm somehow resonates with my natural hair, and for me it’s another way for my femininity to shine through. I hope to inspire as many as possible, to be brave enough to embrace and show who and what they truly are on the inside.” @prettyshepherd #grombre #gogrombre

One young lady has been going gray since age 13. She has also been growing it out since then. Can you believe how long and beautiful her hair is? It is definitely dream hair! She said that she has never felt like it makes her look older and she hopes to inspire other young girls to let their hair go gray too.

Another gray-haired gal had been coloring her hair for fun since she was 16. When she was only covering grays, it was no longer fun anymore. She decided to go all gray about five years ago and never looked back. She said it feels good to just be herself.

"I live in an off-grid cabin during the summer months, and dying my roots every two weeks became almost impossible. This past summer however, I decided enough is enough, and took the opportunity to stop dying my hair once and for all. It’s been 8 months now, and while it wasn’t easy in the beginning, and I had a lot of doubts, I quickly embraced it and never looked back. I LOVE my natural silver color and can’t wait for it to grow out completely, but I am also really enjoying the 2-tone grow out process, as well as the looks that I get (good, bad, and puzzled). I feel empowered and free to be me, and I hope that I can inspire other women to consider going grey/silver too (once they are ready). There is a definite sisterhood and a knowing-look when us 'silver sisters' pass each other on the street. There is strength, honesty, and freedom in this process. 8 months down…another 12+ to go..!" @cowdogblue #grombre #gogrombre
