Silver hair will show you how to decide if you're ready to give up the hair colour servitude, what method of going gray will be most comfortable to you and how to keep your hair and total look beautiful and youthful. With photos taken of real women over one year of growing out their colour, you'll see the various ways to grow out gray, from 'all natural' - minus the skunk line! - to low-lights, silverstreaks, a pixie cut, and dyeing your hair gray as your natural silver emerges. And in a section on 'how to stay gorgeously gray,' you'll find tips on caring for silver hair (complete with homemade hair care recipes) and how to complement your silver hair with clothing and makeup.
