There’s been a trend lately, or actually sometime last year, where young women where dying their hair silver. It’s actually a pretty striking color on a lot of women.
I got my first few strands of silver hair when I 19, or there abouts, and by the time I was 24 it was actually quite noticeable. I had experienced with different hair colors all through my teens, and now that I wanted my natural hair color back, it was turning gray on me. I kind of liked it at first, but when I returned to school after a four years hiatus and some kid told me he thought I was 32, I decided to start dying it again.
I’m 30 now, and I’ve been covering my gray hair for the past 6 years. That means dying the roots every month if not more. I’m kind of sick of the whole process. Dying your hair is cool is your having fun doing it, not when it becomes this chore you associate with covering some kind of “negative” quality. So, for the last few months I’ve stopped dying my hair.
I have a few inches of silver roots all over my head, especially in the front. The rest of my hair is dark brown. I don’t know if I’ll let it all grow out. For now, it’s kind of an experiment. I want to see what I would look with all my gray hair. Once it’s long enough that I can get a descent idea of what it look like on me, I’ll decide whether I want to dye it again or if I want to cut all the dye out of my hair.
That being said, it kind of looks like shit right now, because growing out dyed hair just never looks good, but I really like the look of silver hair on this girl (and on loads of other women). I think it’s beautiful. Plus, she made a cute tutorial video for the up-do she’s sporting in these photos. Check it out. I dig the whole aesthetic and her big gold earrings.
