  • I have a full head of hair at 62, with white hairs mostly visible at my temples (I have reddish brown hair). I use hair clippers to shape and limit the amount of white hair visible. Fortunately, battery operated hair clippers are cheap if you look around. Mine were in the $10 to $20 range. Since Covid-19, I have taken to cutting my own hair in a military style cut (I like my hair short). I have my wife finish up the back of the hair and neck to make sure it is all trimmed and has an even hair line. In Cambodia, a haircut only costs $1.50, but I often have trouble getting them to cut it as short as I like it.
    I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided, and that is the lamp of experience.

    Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance by lying supinely on our backs and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot?

      And thanks for adding "temple pubes" to my vocabulary, Alison H. LMAO. I'm actually a "bare Barbie" so I don't have to worry about that! Haha.
      Hah! You're welcome — I do what I can. LOL! (I haven't noticed any actual pube-pubes turning grey... YET. But the rest of what isn't shaven stays super short, so I might just not be noticing any. I'll have to take a look the next time I do landscaping, if I'm brave enough to want to know for sure... maybe that's one mystery that should stay a mystery for now.)

      I can SO relate to wanting to look like Storm from X-Men; it is a legitimate dream. Or Khaleesi from GoT. Just flowing silver-white hair. I have the start of what I like to call a "streak" starting on my right side — it's like 20 hairs but they're pretty close together. I want a stripe! A solid silver-white stripe.

      There is something to be said for silver foxes, I agree with you on that... I've always preferred older men in general, but there is something really sexy about grey (or even white) hair on a man. But only when they're not acting old, if that makes sense? Like youthful/fun, but silver or salt and pepper hair. That is freaking hot.

          Have you noticed the gray hair trend taking root? Are you a part of it? Do you know someone that is? Tell us your thoughts about this growing revolution.

          Whatever you may think of the sprouting of this “granny hair” trend, it is blossoming everywhere.

          As a result, we decided to look deeper into this growing fashion statement, what started it, why it's so popular, and share what we learned.

          You can read the full article we wrote here:

          Then come back and tell us what you think!
          I will let you know

          • I've dyed my hair for several years and (for several reasons, including cost and time) I decided to let my silver and gray grow out starting this summer. Right now I'm in the multi-color stage which doesn't look great, but it's kind of nice not worrying about dying my hair. Though I sometimes do a double-take in the mirror because I'm not used to what I look like with my roots showing.

            Once it's fully grown out (I have very short hair so that won't take long), then I'll decide if I like it or if I want to go back to dying my hair again.

            Right now, I feel like it may look less cute and silver foxy and more, "She needs to do something with her hair!" but we'll see.

              I think you should wait to see if you develop a sexual spark. That would be the time to be completely open and reveal it.
