Celebrity Shades of Grey

Just when you think you’ve seen it all, another crazy trend comes around. Most people spend all of their time trying to look younger and yet in a surprising twist, one of the biggest hair trends so far in 2017 has been around for a couple of years now and we’re not sure it’s going away any time soon. That’s right-we’re talking about the gray hair fad. We’re not sure why so many celebrities are rocking this color but they do it awfully well. Here’s a list of some of the ones who have done it best.


Someone who can make just about anything look good is of course, Rihanna. The sweet-voiced singer opted to go for a longer version of the steel grey style and she totally rocks it. Is it just me or does she somehow look even younger?

Grey seems to be popular among our resident songstresses. Recording Artist P!nk decided to keep her signature short style but put a new spin on it when she turned it sea grey. It’s definitely different but she definitely knocks this one out of the park. Maybe she should change her name to Grey?

Raven Symone had been making some pretty outlandish headlines for doing and saying things that seemed a little strange to fans who knew her from her Disney Channel tv show “That’s So Raven” so no one paid much attention when she dyed her hair gray. Maybe we should have though; Raven had a one of the most stylish and expertly colored silver bobs out there, adding her own touch with purple highlights.

Kylie Jenner

Who could forget about Kylie Jenner’s take on this style? In maybe one of the best variations yet, Kylie decided to let her dark roots show through and the effect is absolutely stunning. It really works well with that smokey nude lip color she often wears. (No but seriously Kylie, what color is that lipstick? I know I’m not the only who’s been looking everywhere for dupes.)

Toya Wright

Rapper Lil Wayne’s ex-girlfriend Toya Wright was one of the first to really own the grey hair trend. Who could forget this simultaneously styled and tousled take on the fad? Layers and giant curls add much needed dimensions and depth to the color, making her look like a gorgeous real-life version of x-Men’s Storm.

Lil Mama

Lil Mama added some spice to the style when she debuted her version of it, complete with choppy layers and beachy waves. Her version is very similar to Kylie Jenner’s look both in shape and with the showing through of the dark roots, but Lil Mama owns it in her own unique way.

Barak Obama

Shoutout to our former President! We know Barack didn’t dye his hair grey on purpose…8 years of leading the free world sufficed for that. But he manages to be just as handsome rocking the salt-and-pepper shade.

Ryan Higa

Internet sensation Ryan Higa recently did his own version of the grey hair trend when he dyed his hair gray especially for a music video he starred in that parodies Korean Pop music groups. Many of his fans assumed it was just a wash out dye when he originally debuted the style but the YouTube star actually kept the color for several weeks-and we thought guys were afraid of long term commitment!

Even though this trend has been around for a couple of years, it has yet to get old (even if it looks old). What do you think? Is this totally wearable or is it something that only models and celebrities can pull off? Have you tried it? Let us know in the comments down below!
