Nora Ephron once said, “There’s a reason why forty, fifty, and sixty don’t look the way they used to, and it’s not because of feminism, or better living through exercise. It’s because of hair dye.”
I love you, Nora, and as much as it pains me to disagree with you, I have a feeling today might be the day. Because we interviewed five women of all ages who went gray and skipped the dye and, in the above slideshow, they present a hearty counter-argument to the hypothesis of gray as old and replace it with a new one: gray is beautiful.
Click through above to learn about their experiences going gray: when it happened, why they embraced it and how it all felt.
