Grey or is it Gray?

Either way I'm sporting one too many gray hairs...but here's my question today....why when men have grey hair does it make them look sexy, distinguish but for most women we just look OLD? Doesn't seem fair does it!



 Both handsome and sexy, not old looking at all.....




I think these two look beautiful with their silver locks.....

I'm getting my locks taken care of on Friday, but I wish I had the right look and jaw line to pull off the above pictures....it would be so much easier! Maybe it's more acceptable after 50 so I need to wait a while. What do you think grey hair ages women? So unless I want to be mistaken for my hubby's older sister keep my appointment?? Boy do I hate double standards!! 

Happy Thursday!

I totally agree.....men age better....blah!
Grey hair definitely ages women! I get my grey covered! Not sure if and when I'll go all natural!
Glad to be back on line......
Did you happen to see bill Moyer segment on the wiener sex texts?! Google it and watch....really funny.....men can be so stupid, I mean really! And I like/liked wiener....

I saw a silver lady just recently, wearing b&w outfit & bright red lipstick! She was absolutely stunning! It's 'Grey' for me~

It's just not fair. I don't get it.

I know it is so sad that men are like wine in that they get better looking as they get older and we just start looking like men. Ugh! At almost 40, I am 50 percent grey. I get my hair done every 8 weeks.

I know, it isn't fair, is it? I think grey looks great when it's an all-over pretty grey cut in a really great style. Other than that, the salt/pepper thing just looks old and tired. And when I'm feeling old and tired, I definitely don't want to look it! :)

I totally disagree, respectfully. I think a woman with a natural head of grey hair is sexy, I never understood why people, men and woman, want to paint their hair to try to full mother nature.
Thats just my opinion, coming from a grey haired guy.

My husband is a true red head but mostly gray/grey now and somehow the red/gray combo makes him look blonde.

I still just highlight but am inching closer to going with a complete color. I hate the texture of my gray.

It is so unfair..I color my hair now too..Im sporting the grey around the front..ticks me off to no end..and my husband who has grey,looks amazing.

It's totally not fair!

I think it depends on the woman whether or not she can pull off silver hair. Those two that you found sure can!

My mother in law sports the most fabulous salt and pepper locks ever. Some can do it-- but i doubt i'll be able to.

And i think 'grey'

I vote for grey because it looks prettier written. I remember many years ago when I went to with a friend to visit her dad. He compared women to a rose. Now years later I think I finally understand the rose thing! :-) xo

I'm going with 'grey'.

My Mom will be 55 in a couple of weeks and she hardly has any grey hair. I'm 30 and don't have any yet so I'm just counting on that - although, I'm no really particularly attached to my hair so I'm not sure how I'd take it if it turned grey.. hmm..

Grandma turned completely gray before 40. At 45 I'm buried under several years of coloring and not quite sure of the volume of gray, but it's a lot. I'm tired of fighting it and am trying to let it grow out. I don't care if it makes me look older. I've looked younger than my age all of my life, maybe this will finally bring up to my actual age. Whatever, I don't care. I fear I may have to color it gray to make it not look so... icky... during the grow out phase.

Hiya, you are right, the grey look on women seems more trick to pull off, but when they do manage it, it looks stunning! I found you over at 'From the other side of the Pond' and I am now following you. Hope you can also pop by my blog ;-)

No kidding. I heard on tv tonight that scientists have turned a gray mouse brown through some magical experiment, so I guess humans are not far behind.

They look lovely, and I'm sure you do, too :)
