15 Photos That Showcase The Beauty Of Gray Hair

Who needs hair dye when gray looks this good?

We’ve all heard that bald is beautiful, but what if I told you gray is gorgeous?

Many of us remember the first time we spotted—or were told about—a gray strand of hair on our head. It’s a moment that’s typically followed by unwanted contemplations of our mortality. Going gray hits all of us at different times and is heavily influenced by genetics.

Men and women typically start seeing gray hair in their 30s but experts say that by the age of 50, half of the population will have hair that’s 50 percent gray. It’s of course a totally natural symptom of aging that happens when the body stops producing the cells that lead to colored hair.

But these days, gray hair is more a badge of honor than a symptom of being “old.” Gray hair has become such a style statement that young celebrities like Lady Gaga, Rihanna and Ryan Lochte have dyed their manes gray well before their natural time.

Let’s take a look at some more celebs who’ve proven gray is gorgeous. After seeing these photos, you might never buy another box of hair dye—unless it’s gray, of course.
