Whether natural gray hair growing out of your head or a trendy dyed hue, gray hair is always a good idea. We’re loving that celebs are embracing their gray hair while stuck at home and not able to get a root touch-up. But it’s not just now during social-distancing. Some celebrities rock their gray hair all the time and look seriously fab doing it. Because there’s absolutely nothing to be ashamed of and a smattering or grays or an entire head is really beautiful.
Of course, there’s unnatural gray hair, too. Celebrities love the platinum, ashy hue that’s equal parts pretty and edgy. Sure, it’s a lot of maintenance but the finished product is a bold, memorable look. It doesn’t have to be fully gray from the roots. Dark roots and balayage gray can look pretty incredible on all skin tones, as well as gray pixie cuts and even gray highlights. (Real or faux!)
From Meryl Streep and Helen Mirren’s sophisticated gray strands to Ciara and Winnie Harlow playing around with wigs, there’s a ton of gray hair to draw inspo from if you’re looking to switch up your own look. Or, if you have some grays, let them grow in and rock the look with pride. Check out some of our favorites from the last few years below and bookmark this page for next time you hit the salon.

Never got to post getting ready for the @townandcountrymag gem awards. I was lucky enough to wear @verdurajewelry - a treat I won’t soon forget. That is ONE strand of Akori pearls, people. I fell in love with the vintage pink topaz, ruby and diamond brooch from the 40s so the peeps at Verdura rigged it with electrical wire to make the look. Sorry, kids. You’re gonna have to buy both if you want to try that at home. (I can promise you my next bday present to myself is the bullseye arrow earrings.) It was a lovely night. I forgot how much I really love gems. When I was 5 I wanted to be a gemologist. I used to carry around a massive coffee table book called GEMS OF THE WORLD and I would read about the Hope Diamond and The Logan Sapphire. Years later, I got to be part of a Life magazine shoot in which we styled @michellepfeifferofficial in all the Smithsonian jewels, including both those rocks... But I digress... At the party, I also got to show off my role as a @museshowroom #haveaheart ambassador (@linguafrancanyc custom made this dope sweater in record time for me to wear it to the event!) #haveaheart is a jewelry initiative in which a bunch of brilliant and talented jewelry designers all made charms of hearts (or things that remind us of hearts) through which designations to charities can be made. In this initial season, Muse worked with 3 ambassadors and causes close to their hearts: @tizzielisch and @citymeals @debwatson and @projectals and me and @jedfoundation - we each chose charms for our charities and they receive a 10% donation whenever they are purchased. Check out @museshowroom for info. Thank you @verdurajewelry for making me feel like a gd fairy princess and @townandcountrymag for having me!
