Gray Hair Color: 19 Photos to Inspire You Not to Color Your Hair

beauty.about.com

Grey hair doesn't mean it's over. Yasmina Rossi is proof. She's a professional model, discovered after her hair went grey! But she also has an amazing-looking body, bone structure etc, and could pass for much younger (especially in this photo)! So if you're grey, what else do you have going on? Do you have any admirable assetts you can play up, like Yasmina?

Ombre hair is trendy right now - this is where the hair changes from light to dark along its length, like a gradient of colour. Usually achieved with hair dyes, this woman is rocking the look naturally and being accidentally trendy! Isn't it cool when that happens to you?! Original pinner: "Aging gracefully isn't about being older and looking old...for me, it's about accepting one's self, grey or not. This young woman obviously is comfortable in her own skin. Yeah for her. She's beautiful."

"Our culture is fearful of aging," said Franklin, "and especially aging women. I say, 'Stop apologizing for getting older. Embrace it.' I want young women to see that beauty ages beautifully and there is no need to feel that getting older is something that has to be medicated, managed with surgery or be obsessed about." Age is to be respected, not ridiculed. As you grow older, remember age is what gives antiques their value. Be proud if you've been around a long time. ;-) - Lillybeth

Carmen Dell’Orefice (Born June 3, 1931) is 80 years old right now. She is the oldest model in the world modeling for the last 66 years, placing herself in the Guinness Book of World Records! Yes this photo is probably air-brushed to heck but isn't she stunning!!? I'm always talking about age-appropriate makeup over on my facebook page. Come join the discussion.

Another silver-haired beauty! Styled in warm tones to enhance a more earthy or hippy personality. ;-) Learn more about makeup for mature women on the Lillybeth facebook page (click photo)

    This blessed woman - with brown eyes - can wear any shade becasue brown suits anything, I consider brown eyes a neutral. And purple, shown here, is an especially gorgeous and feminine choice for any eye colour, But with blue or green eyes, any colour is great EXCEPT green and blue! However if you have very aged eyelids and don't think your lashline is your best asset, stick with brown/grey eyeliner options rather than a colour. Neutrals such as brown and grey liner are the most naturally flattering.

    Isn't she gorgeous? See the other pins of this model on this board.

    HELP: Saw statements from some that say brown eyes aren't as attractive with gray/silver hair? What is the best eye colors to prove them wrong? :)

  • Linda Wester

    THANK YOU! Just read the above post. What about foundation, ect?

  • Lillybeth: A Beautiful Education

    Hi Linda - Hmmm, foundation colour is not a choice! It should be your skin tone, but better.
