OK - I've decided!!
I'm going to let my grays go natural!
I'm a little worried because I've done this once before a few years ago, and I got treated differently, I noticed. I like to wear fun, youthful styles likes anime buns and double braids, and I noticed sometimes I would get snickering from teenagers at the mall, etc...It was so discouraging. But I don't act old, or dress old, so I should be able to do what I want with my hair as long as it looks nice, right?
I know we have some wonderful threads showing lovely white hair, but I couldn't find anything showing salt & pepper and gray streaks. I need some inspiration and confidence building in knowing that I can have some gray but still be hot & youthful! :-) So let's share some pics of beautiful salt & pepper and gray streaks!
Here's some to start us off, the wonderful gray streak that Stacy London has (I know, some folks can't stand her - but the hair is cool, you have to admit!):
Then there's the lovely Bonnie Raitt - she is a great model for me, because I work in music and still need to portray cool - she certainly does!
I found this in a Google images search, she's totally got the look I want - hip, youthful and fun:
Then there's the fictional Rogue from X-Men, so of course this isn't natural, but it sure looks hot!
Of course, gray hair doesn't always come in as a cool streak...I'd love to see pics of nice all-over sexy salt and pepper too! The guys can do it (i.e. George Clooney, etc.)...why can't we ladies?
Here's a sexy all-over salt and pepper pic:
