To me there is nothing more attractive, sexy and foxy, than grey hair.
And that goes for men AND women.
Even as a kid I remember looking at people with either salt and pepper or completely grey/silver hair, and couldn't wait for the day when my own hair would start turning.
And that day arrived when I was 27-years old and the person who was cutting my hair at the time said, "Ron...I don't want to alarm you but you're starting to get a patch of grey hair on the back of your head." Well, you would have thought I had won the four million dollar lottery because I got soooo freakin' excited.
I said, "Are you kidding me?"
She said, "No...I really mean it. You're getting grey, Ron. Sorry."
My face broke into a huge smile, and I exclaimed, "Quick, quick...give me a hand mirror and turn the chair around so I can see it in the big mirror!"
And lo and behold, there it was...my first patch of GREY HAIR.
Hallelujah...it had arrived!
Yes, I was finally on my way to becoming what I had admired since I was a youngster, a Silver Fox!
As most of you already know, I was a licensed cosmetologist when I lived in Florida. I kept my license for over 13 years. And during that time I did my best to persuade my clients, both men and women, to stop coloring their grey hair by allowing it to grow out and be PROUD of their beautiful, foxy fur.
Many of my clients were resistant at first, and some refused to do it, however the ones who did allow their hair to go grey, ended up loving it and were grateful that I had convinced them to do so.
And not only were they saving money by not coloring their hair, but they also said that they were suddenly getting compliments about the way they looked.
The reason I'm sharing this post is because for the past eight months I've seen more and more customers, men and women (but especially women), who have come into the store where I work, proudly sporting their grey hair. And you have no idea how happy that makes me because I think they look absolutely beautiful. In fact, I even tell them that.
So to celebrate all the silver foxes on this planet, I would like to share images of why I think they're so, well, foxy!
Hope you're having a super week, y'all!
