Are the youth of today in too much of a hurry to turn grey?

Grey hair is no longer a marker of age – in case you missed it, going grey is actually on trend now.

Instead of being something you desperately avoid with years of hair dye, now celebrities are purposefully colouring their hair to get the look.

Instead of turning platinum blonde, celebrities and models are now colouring their hair grey as a fresh, stylish and striking approach at any age. Instead of being a symbol of ageing, grey hair has evolved to become a symbol of style.

I think it's a fashion statement that will change when the next craze comes in. I remember having grey highlights put in my hair at 21 now I am lucky if I can find a dark hair on my head.

I prefer grey to green hair. The green always looks like they are starting to go off and at my age that isn't a good look

When you say "grey hair" makes me think of the dull darker battleship grey, a grey day, grey clothes. Not a nice colour.

I prefer the word "Silver haired". a lighter lovlier colour. Why would youngsters not want to colour their hair silver?
After all, many people coloured their hair platinum blonde, slavishly copying the film stars. Platinum was not far off silver. I love our technicolour world.

It is after all a good look.

Let the youngsters have their fads, they will probably be reaching for the darker dyes when they need to cover the grey or silver.

Maybe all will be sporting shaved heads if the trend is leading them that way.

Why would a person's hair colour ever matter? Young and artificially grey, or older and naturally so? Just because a young woman....or man, for that matter... decides she wants to colour her hair grey, doesn't mean she wants necessarily to 'be' or 'appear' older. Why should some motive be implied or suspected? Why should it be anything other than a statement of self, or fashion, or desire to be different? Grey hair can look absolutely wonderful, whatever the age or gender.

I'm like you Pam1960, I'm a trend setter at last.

Does it really matter if the fashion trend at the moment is young people dying their hair grey. Grey-haired people have been dying their hair a different colour for years and no one has thought it odd.

My hair was very dark brown, which I loved very much, I started to go gray in my late forty’s. I think the longer you have your natural hair colour, the better. The trouble with younger generation then go on about the older generation, but they want to look older Why. Gray hair looks nice on some people, I think it looks better if it’s kept short.
That’s my opinion.

I dont see the problem, after all grey is just another hair colour isnt it? I am letting my hair go grey now and the negative comments Ive had you wouldnt believe, seems its ok for men to have grey hair but not women!

I guess it depends on why you think it's a problem, I have been every colour on a hairdressers chart. Horrible salt and pepper colour in reality so I chose to be silver a few years ago. I think this trend makes it rather cool to be grey.

Grey is preferable to the multi colour creations ,I have seen,but is no worse than the purple rinse beloved of some naturally grey haired people. Hair should suit your skin tone .If people want a change they should try a wig first to see whats suits them.

I Goddaughter dyed her hair grey, she said she loved it. When it grew out and she found she had real grey hairs she went mad. It is just another 5 minute wonder. I envy my friend who has lovely natural grey hair I am 60 plus and have no grey hairs and I bet when I do go grey it will be a saltand peper grey , shuch is life

Seems a strange trend. My hair turned grey years ago and I spent years trying to stop it and now the youth of today would like grey hair. They can have some of mine if they like.

Good grief! If this had happened when I was (a lot) younger, I could have saved a fortune at the hairdressers!!! 🙂
