11 Grey-Haired Actresses Who Prove Grey Can Be Absolutely Gorgeous!

Plus, easy ways to make your greys shine

Time was that even a sliver of silver in our hair would be a dead giveaway of our age, and the moment we saw that first one pop up, we reached for the box color or called up our hair colorist and covered it — fast! But these days, donning the sugary hue is now trending in Hollywood. Whether it stems from a time when getting to a salon was nearly impossible, or the fact that older actresses have simply embraced the beauty of aging, more and more A-listers are rocking everything from salt-and-pepper locks to full on grey manes, proving that sporting silver strands no longer carries the stigma it once did.

In fact, going grey can actually offer anti-aging benefits, says Mike Petrizzi, a celebrity colorist at New York City’s Chris Chase Salon. “The vibrance of a silver hue gives hair added luster that helps thinner tresses appear thicker,” he says. And those that prefer a salt-and-pepper mix also reap the hair-thickening rewards as the contrast between light and dark strands provides depth and dimension for a fuller-looking mane.

And the benefits don’t just stop with hair, as Petrizzi adds, “the bright hue bounces light onto skin, enlivening the entire complexion for a lit-from-within glow.” It also creates a gorgeous blank canvas so any makeup that you apply will really pops in comparison.
