This is just a little post , about the slogan "Am I Grey ? " which I spotted on tee shirts worn by the models at the Grey Model Agency in London www.greymodelagency.com, this is a specialist agency ( yes I know it's obvious ) who celebrate gorgeous grey models, who in my, for what it's worth opinion are highly under utilised in today's market.
If you look at the men and women on this site, you will actually want to turn grey they are so gorgeous, and a fabulous reminder of the changing culture we are developing nowadays towards all things ageing.
Even the teens are turning to grey hair colour that's how trendy it is :)
I think the beauty and fashion industry are finally having light bulb moments and realising that not only is there value in (the grey pound ) a slogan which has been around since the eighties, that we actually have a voice and do not vanish into knitting shreddies when we reach 50 !
I saw an article written this morning where Nikki Taylor was interviewed regarding the sales of beauty products to mature women, and why there are not enough older sales assistants, it was a fabulous thoughtful post, you really should catch up with her thoughts nikkitaylor.me
I know it is probably quite hard for a 20 something to look at a wrinkled person and think they are beautiful as we are programmed to measure beauty with youth aka my little rant about anti ageing products on my blog recently, but the joy of being older is seeing beauty in all things, we can readily accept and admire the beauty in a gorgeous taught skinned model, while at the same time look at these mature models and sigh at such beauty.
Does your partner think you any less gorgeous as the years tick by ? of course not, I can look at those crow feet that get deeper with a smile and just feel warmth and love at the smiling paper bag face lol.
On a personal note, I live with the frustration that my hair will not turn grey enough to leave alone, and the growing out process would be far to harsh for me to live with, so I spend my pennies on turning this blonde nest into a grey nest, there are some fabulous products out there for this, and specialist hair care, I personally love White Hot Hair
( if you can't make it fake it )
Would love your thoughts on this topic
