Going grey. No, I don’t mean the sky. Or the water.. or the general greyscale blanket that seems to settle over all of Vancouver when it starts to rain.
I’m talking about grey hair, or #grannyhair. 3 months ago, I went grey for the first time on a whim and a few good reasons:
1) I loved being blonde, but I didn’t like being ‘blonde’
2) Brassy tones were gone!
Aside from silver being my favorite metallic, it was time for something new. I’d been bleach blonde, a pastel unicorn, almost every color of the rainbow and there’s no way I was going to go natural, so I put my colorist up to the challenge and went grey.
The benefits are that silver hair fades to a gorgeous white, no more blonde jokes and surprisingly, it doesn’t seem to grind anyones gears; although my mom wouldn’t dare try it out for herself. The cons are that the color fades rather quickly so I’d recommend talking to your colorist about maintenance, but overall it’s a unique color that fits long term and short term use.
