I’m not going to sit here and tell you that I’ve always been comfortable with my grey hair. It took a global pandemic for me to start embracing that part of my persona. But, I’ve slowly come to realize that while it’s true I’m getting older, it’s not a sign that I am old.
When Covid-19 kept me from going to the salon to get my greys covered, I’ll admit that I felt a little anxious about how people would perceive me if I let my silver strands shine through.
What helped me move past my insecurities was seeing how other women are living with — and frankly loving — their silver hair. The list of women who inspire me grows every single day, but here are seven of my all-time favorite silver sisters on Instagram.
