Hot Trend… Gray Hair, Young Men

“Gray Is the New Black,” heralded a recent issue of GQ magazine.

Comedy Central host Jon Stewart, who is 43, actor George Clooney, 45, and CNN anchorman Anderson Cooper, 39, have made it fashionable to be young, famous and gray.”

It seems that only 4% of men between 25 and 54 years of age color their hair, but the number rises significantly for women. I’m thinking that we have to do some serious thinking about how we feel about aging. If men can be sexy with gray hair, why do we run to the salon every six weeks to cover it before anyone notices??

    I’m just thrilled that 45 is considered young!

    I agree, women can be sexy with gray hair too! If they can, I don’t see why we can’t too! I think its just a matter of perception really.

    I don’t color mine, and don’t plan to.

    (I like that 45 is considered young too, that means I’m also still young!)
