Going Grey Gracefully

If you’ve been clinging to the hair dye bottle for the past decade, it might be time to let nature take its course and go au naturale. If you really want to change your look and feel fresh, why not buck the trend and love your natural hair color, no matter what it is.
 
Grey hair, in fact, is in! Well, sort of, if you can pull of grey the way Tim Robbins, Meryl Streep, George Clooney and Diane Keaton do. Many find gray hair sexy, believe it or not. It’s a sign of wisdom, experience and confidence, so why not embrace it?
 
Of course, you don’t want to do this without a bit of consultation. Talk to a hair stylist about how you can embrace your grey hair gradually or get a cut that shows it off well. You’ll also have to become well versed in hair products that are specifically designed to treat grey hair and keep it healthy.
 
With some prep, as with all makeovers, you’ll be a more fabulous, natural you. What’s so wrong with getting older anyway? [Abcnews.com]
