- going grey
first grey hairs at college
53 now and mostly still have colour although the neighbour mentioned how grey my hair had become on Sunday. Hes been away for 4 months and I’ve grown it much longer in that time 🙂 Thinking about getting a pink rinse now
Honestly don’t care – I look amazing with whatever – short, long, bald, grey ‘style’ I choose
Started a few grey pubes now – which is nicePosted 1 year agoFuzzyWuzzySubscriber
I’m 45 and have a fair bit of grey coverage now, started around 35 I think – can’t say it bothers me (prefer having grey hair to a rapidly receding hair line…). Mind you my granddad apparently had a completely white head of hair by age 22 so I dodged a bullet there.Posted 1 year agoblitzMember
Started to get my first grey hairs around 20 and completely grey now in my late 30s. I joke with my wife that it’s her fault as we got together when we were 19!
I really DGAF though and wouldn’t contemplate dying it. Oddly, despite going grey on top so early, none of my other body hair is grey at all except the odd nostril hair. Much rather a full head of grey than be going bald.Posted 1 year agobikebouySubscriber
I’ll be honest here, yeah for a change I know.
I started turning grey around 44-45, not a lot but enough for my locks (my hair isn’t long, above collar but floppy top) to show around the sides. So I made a fatal mistake of getting my hair highlighted… like yeah. My hair is sun bleached brown anyway so I thought a few more streaks would go unnoticed..
My Mates laughter was vicious and loud, my boss pointed and said “mate, that’s just wrong” and that was it for me..
Following week I had lowlights and it took it down a notch or two and looked pretty good to be honest.
Ever since I’ve just accepted going grey, I get more admiration and side glances now than I’ve probably ever have done.
I came to terms with it and now love it’s random grey/smoke/brown/blondness…Posted 1 year agoGunzMember
47 and fully Schofield but both my parents were white at 40 so I knew it was inevitable. My niece reckons I’d look weird now with dark hair and I tend to agree.
One thing I will not abide though is the onset of thick bushy eyebrows, they get plucked as soon as they appear.Posted 1 year agotomparkinMember
36, greying for years now, and thinning rapidly at the back.
For the time being I’m telling myself it’s a George Clooney “silver fox” sort of look.
But it’s only a matter of time before the thinning progresses to the point it’s more of an “egg in a silver nest” sort of look. Hopefully I catch it before then and transition gracefully to the escaped convict look.
It’s just hair.Posted 1 year agonickhit3Member
Thank you for the varied answers and confessions there. Someone asked how long my hair is, its long, down to mid chest, but typically tied up in a knot or ‘man bun’ if you prefer using terms like that. Never a ponytail. I have a beard too. See also: Jesus Of Nazareth etc. He never lived long enough to go grey did he? He had some stresses though tbf. Probably had a few.
For the record, personally not overly bothered, but it certainly for me has become the first tangible sign of getting older.Posted 1 year agoBreganteSubscriber
My hair isn’t grey, it’s totally white and it has been since I was about 35 but until last year I had a very short shaved head so people never really noticed. I’m now 49 and in the passed year I have let my hair (and my beard) grow substantially and have got used to it. It runs in my family, my dad and sister were grey at a similar age to me and I”m perfectly comfortable with it.Posted 1 year agoblader1611Member
I started going grey when i was 21 but even now at 45 its still only 50%ish grey. Most of my family were white haired by 45 so doing slightly better than them. It has never bothered me in the slightest although people have no idea about my age as i have very little facial hair so i am baby faced with a head of grey hair.Posted 1 year ago
