Granny Hairs a Go In 2015

I feel kind of guilty about hating on dad bods and liking granny hair. Just kidding– I don’t.

Unlike dad bods, granny hair actually looks good.

Though it has been trending for a few months now, I just heard the coined term “granny hair” today. So for those who are a bit out of the loop (like me), “‘Granny hair is basically silver hair, any tone of gray in your hair: steel gray, silvery gray, really, really white, platinum-ish with either violet or silver undertones,’ New York hair stylist Jan-Marie Arteca said.

And whether you like it or not, “Many fashion blogs and magazines say the look is the ‘hottest’ hair color trend for 2015 while website boredpanda asked women to post pictures of their ‘granny hair’ on a page that has since been viewed over 500,000 times.”

Not only are young girls choosing to go gray early, but many celebrities are as well. According to Reuters, gray locks have been “spotted on celebrities such as Lady Gaga, Pink, Rihanna, Nicole Ritchie and Kelly Osborne.”

For once, people are looking forward to going gray, rather than looking for ways to avoid doing so. And I’ll admit– I’m looking forward to seeing more and more gray-goers this year.
