It’s no surprise, what with the granny chic trend at the moment, that grey hair is taking off in fashion circles. Yes, you heard right! London’s young east end trendsetters and models are clamouring to dye their hair silver and gunmetal grey.
Angelina Jolie has been spotted with long, black hair with silver streaks to appear older for her new film, Salt.
Victoria Beckham is currently letting her silver strands show through, and Pixie Geldof is also a fan of the “groovy granny” look.
According to Neil Moodie, of Bumble and Bumble, the perception that grey hair on women is ageing isn’t necessarily true.
Charcoal coloured hair was seen at the Spring/Summer 2010 Giles Deacon and Gareth Pugh fashion shows.
Meanwhile, in Washington, D.C., men are requesting grey or salt-and-pepper hair, going as far as asking for strands in their eyebrows. Men are doing this to be taken more seriously or to be seen as more conservative.
