I started a Pinterest board to help me focus on what might be if I am brave enough. Check out the pictures of grays who do not have granny styles. I think I could do that. Couldn't you? Please follow if you like and if you find some inspiring pics maybe post them on this thread. And if it is you please share!!!!!

    I think it is. Looks just like her hair only gray. Same pattern and all.

    Chupie, I love checking Pinterest every day to see what gorgeous gray-haired photos you've found! I'm posting this one (had to take a screenshot because the link doesn't work, so I hope it comes put okay) because I think it sort of shows how color is so important when you go gray. The red/coral color of this lady's necklace and lipstick, paired with the complementary blue sweater, is DIVINE:

    Not that I look (or have ever) looked good sans makeup but definitely when gray some of us (to whit: ME) will have to be make up vigilant.

    OH, yeah, Lady_Creole those are some silver foxes! I see two pics of Emmylou Harris - she went silver very young - and her hair is just gorgeous. They are all lovely silver ladies, though.
