Last year I once again jumped on the hair-dye wagon. It's always the same: In the beginning I'm determined to stay on track. I swear to myself that this time, I will get my roots touched up every six weeks! I always show up for the first follow-up appointment, high-fiving myself for sticking to a hair dye regime. But as soon as they tell me how much it costs, I'm over it.
The money, time and effort that's required to keep up with dyed hair is just too much for me. I much rather spend my money on clothes or new dogs. (We all have our hobbies.)
So, I am currently growing my colour out. Thanks to the current trends of having multiple colours in your hair I don't actually have roots, but ombre, and can pretend that I'm not lazy, but fashion-forward. Love it!
But it begs the question: What to do about grey hair? I have a few greys that I am very aware of, even though kind people have assured me that they are invisible. People are liars! (Thanks so much for lying to me, despite my knowing exactly where the greys are and how many of them there are on my head - 17 at the moment.)
Like with all pressing questions, I asked the Internet for help, in particular Pinterest.
It did not disappoint.
Let me introduce you to Annika von Holdt.

She is a writer, blogger, model, photographer, and all around fabulous. She is also proudly grey! Read her grey confession, it's awesome. If you want to see amazing pictures from the Caribbean (where she lives part-time), pretty interior design photos and adorable cats, check out her Instagram.

The second gorgeous silver-haired beauty I found online is Sarah Harris, the Fashion features Director of British Vogue.

I'm totally crushing on her hair, it's such a pretty shade of silver! There are countless photos to be found of her online, here's another one I like:
These two ladies make me want silver hair right now! Oh, the power of Pinterest.
(Pst: My account is right here.)
I hope I will be confident enough to rock grey hair when my 17 have multiplied to 17,000, but honestly? I'm not sure yet. Time will tell.
How about you: Are you dying your hair, or will you once the grey takes over? Or are you confident enough to turn grey gracefully?
