Seriously, I was watching a commercial that Stacy London from "What not to Wear" was in. I could have sworn that I saw grey streeks in her hair. If I am mistaken I do apologize to Ms. london.
If not OMG you have got to be kidding me. Please don't get me wrong some women look lovely with the silver hair. Me personally I have been grey since I was 25. (Thanks Mom!)
Sometimes family genes really cramp your style!
I don’t spend alot of money on anything for myself,except coloring my hair. When my gray roots start showing I actually feel depressed until I get it colored again. I guess that sounds crazy but I turnung 41 next friday and I just feel younger and even sexier with no gray.
There is an Interior Decorator by the name of Kitty something and she has a gray patch right in front.
I say you go girl,but honey that is not for me!
My sweet hubby tells me when it starts to get gray "Why *don't you let it go gray? I tell him that won't be happening any time soon!*
To me it is not just hair,it actually affects me emotionally.
Please tell I am not heading towards round rubber roomm,and being told to find the corner. LOL
If it is the style more power to the style,but I won’t be climbing on that float as it goes by any time soon!

So what do you think?

Ciao,
Bella

    • Stacy does have a streak of gray in the front of her hair. It looks good on her.
      Bella, you do what is right for you. I have a friend who is completely gray and she is in her early 50’s. She went gray when she was in her 20’s. It looks good on her and she loves it.
      I think the decorators name is Kitty Carlyle? and she does work that gray streak.
      I used to shave my hair off completely, wore it like that for 10 years. I loved it and it looked good on me. Now that I have grown it out I can’t imagine it like that anymore.
      But from time to time I miss my “bald head“. No worries, no fuss, just get up and go!

    • I cannot speak for anyone but myself, but I will be a redhead until the day I die(dye!) haha

      I also was blessed with the turn-gray-early gene, started about 27.

    • !http://images.fabulously40.com/uploadedimage/2393/thumbx120/graduation-024.jpg!I dfinitely believe in color!  Sometimes I get tired of coloring and I ask my kids if I should let it go....their answer is “Oh my God Mom,no!”  My husband would‘nt care.  It does make me feel better.  I’m afraid that grey hair would make me look all washed out because I have fair skin.  On the other hand...there are a lot of ladies that can carry it off well.

    • I agree with keeping the color in your life!  I think gray is depressing too! Has anyone seen Jamie Lee Curtis lately?  Ugh!   Her face is gorgeous and that gray do just doesn’t go with it!  On the other hand.....did anyone see the cover of November More magazine?  Did you see how lovely Jane Fonda looked?  She’s really blond now, and it looks great on her!  Wow!

    • I also agree.  I will color my hair as long as possible.  I feel I am too young to go completely gray.

    • i got my first gray hairs when i was 16.  and now my natural color is mostly gray with some medium brown in it.  lucky me!!!  

      i color my hair myself, a light golden brown.  i get compliments on it shortly after i color it, and then not long later, the gray roots show up.  like you, Bella, i get depressed and kringe when i look in the mirror and see shiny silver roots blaring back at me.  it reeeeeeally does affect my mood!!!  can’t help it.  when i get my COLOR back on it’s like i’m a new woman!!!

    • Bella, i agree w/inakika, do what’s best for you.  i have locs and been blessed with genes that don’t allow the women in our family to go noticeably gray until we are well into our 60’s (my grandmother is 83 and she finally has a salt and pepper look, my mother has maybe 20 grays, my little sister just turned 38 and has none, and i have 4 or 5), but i’m the opposite of you, i can’t wait for the salt and pepper look or silver, if that’s what my hair does. I got my first gray hair at 36 and i was so excited (go figure?). why is it always greener (or grayer) on the other side of the fence? sigh...and did you see Meryl Streep in “The Devil Wears Prada“?????  That gray wig is what made her look so FAAAAAABULOUS, and she didn’t look old!  I say if that’s what God gave you baby, flaunt it with a vengeance, walk into a room and own it with your fierce silver crown...but again, do what makes YOU happy!

    • This is exactly what I am going through with my hair. I am in the process of whether to continue to color or not. Some woman can pull it off but I am just not sure if I am one of those woman. I have some grey hair but I still have alot of dark roots too.I have tried to use only the platinum highlights and forget the roots but I am just not sure if I am going to be satisfied with this look. Oh well, for the time being, I am going to let it go and see what happens. I also think that Meryl Streep looked great!!!!!
