Long Gray Hair
For Yasmina Rossi, 58, a model and photographer, long, gray hair functions as an enveloping cloak. “It protects me everywhere I go in the world,” Ms. Rossi said. “I’ve been in deep Amazonia, I’ve been in Egypt, and in places completely isolated, and people were respectful of me because of my gray hair.”
"When my daughter was younger, she told me she was ashamed to be seen with me because of my hair. So I used a shampoo-in color, and it turned a hideous eggplant. It took me a year to grow it out; I just kept cutting it off till I was all gray again. I love it natural. It's who I am. I love being in my 50s and looking my age and being in great shape."
