What a difference a gray makes, eh?
Lee Meriwether, actress and Miss America in 1955 who reflected on all things pageant in AARP recently, proves that not all gray haircuts are created equal — and that's especially true when it comes to gray hair.
As the Silver Sisters have proved time and again, gray or silver hair can be sexy, chic and even youthful. But it does have to be styled the right way. Leave it to its own devices and it can often just look like a mop.
My cousin told me that my aunt had been pestering her to let her hair go gray, but she didn't feel ready and what did I think. She has long, very roll-y, big uneven waves... I said, Well, I really think you'd need a precision cut. "EXACTLY!" She obviously agreed.
When I went to meet a score or more of Silver Sisters for their annual gathering in the fall, I noticed many of them had either precision cuts or at least very specific hairstyles, even if it was tight curls.
Lee Meriweather illustrates the gray haircut case perfectly. At right, it looks air-dried and tousled and just makes her look rather tired (sorry, Lee!).
But at left, with lift and smoothly brushed back, it has shine and life, it brings up her face, makes her eyes sparkle and makes those cheekbones really stand out. Wow
Do you see the difference? Does it inspire you to get a precision cut? Or a more coiffed hairstyle in general?
