The Best Hair Moments from Celebrities at the 2018 Oscars

Many people may watch the Oscars to see if their favorite film will win prestigious awards. Others watch it for the stunning looks that come across the red carpet, from gorgeous gowns to sleek suits. However, we watch the Oscars for the incredible hairstyles!

The ‘dos that recently hit the Los Angeles red carpet set the trend for what we’re likely to see for the rest of the year. Stylists and celebrities brought their A-game to show that no matter how little or how much hair you have, you can always look glamorous.

From hair color to creative uses of hair extensions, here are our favorites from this year.

1. Naomi Campbell

Leave it to the world’s most famed and fabulous supermodel to leave us breathless with her look. That long, sleek hair is a great look not just for her, but for any woman who wants to show the world that she’s a force to be reckoned with.

Even if you have short hair, you can still achieve this look. Use hair extensions and a straightening iron with some heat protectant serum and voila! You’ve achieved this beautiful style. Since you’ll be applying heat to your hair, we also suggest you get real hair extensions, instead of a synthetic hairpiece, if you are going to add length.

2. Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth

One of Hollywood’s power couples took to the red carpet with effortless glamour. The mirrored parting of their hair adds great symmetry to this photo, adding to their overall look! They are giving us classic Hollywood style that’s been modernized, with Liam’s tousled but controlled hairstyle and Miley’s elegant two-toned dress.

Going out with your loved one for the night? Don’t be afraid to match your looks! Guys, you don’t need a black tux to make a statement – your hair is where you can express your style and creativity. If you don’t already have the hair for this look, we encourage you to get a hairpiece with some length so that you can change it to match looks for the night!

3. Allison Janney

This elegant and talented actress gave us a wonderfully creative yet simple hairstyle on the red carpet: a “fishbone braid” looped into a bun! This updo is both subdued and sophisticated, and we love how versatile this look is.

It’s true that you may need some length to achieve this style, but you may consider getting a bun or extension that can attach to you like a hairpiece. Some hairpieces can be long and thick – like a ponytail extension – which many people can use to achieve a look like this one.

4. Timothée Chalamet

Hollywood newcomer Timothée Chalamet shows that men can rock long hair and look effortlessly cool. This hairstyle gives off a vibe that’s slightly rebellious, yet charming and approachable.

Guys, if you’re ready to try a longer hairstyle, remember that hair extensions and longer hairpieces can be for you too. Play with the style to see what works for your personality and look! Another benefit to getting long hairpieces is that you can always cut go shorter if you find that it isn’t for you.

Need help getting the hairpieces, wigs, or extensions you need to achieve these looks? Book an appointment with one of our stylists today at 800-966-9505!

Men’s Hair Trends for Spring 2018

Gentlemen, spring is around the corner and it’s the perfect time to change your look. Don’t get stuck playing it safe! Discover a new style that makes you excited to look in the mirror and show off that brimming confidence to your friends and family. We have some ideas for you that promise to be huge this spring...

Blowouts take long hair on the top of the head to a new level. Designed to look devil-may-care and effortlessly cool, this style has a ton of possibilities. You can combine it with a high fade, short side, or with an undercut. However you choose to style it, we love it.

High Fades
Fades are one of the most popular styles to rock this spring. Let’s start with this high fade and long textured or curly fringe on top. This style is great for those of you who love a shorter haircut that’s low-maintenance and easy to style. It doesn’t require as much product or time to own this look, so you can go about your day with easy confidence.

Medium Fades
For a more polished look, try a medium drop fade with a side part. This look is a classic, and it’s definitely on trend this spring. You can leave it longer on top to keep your styling options open. This allows you to rock a messy effortless look, or you can throw a little product in it and smooth it over for a night out.

Low Fades
The last fade we have for you is a low skin fade with a comb over. I know you’re thinking a comb over is a bad idea, but this is not your grandfather’s comb over! This low skin fade is will give you a clean look, and you can make it your own by adding a few lines or designs in the buzzed sections.

Updated Comb Over
For those of you out there who aren’t into the fades, a medium-length comb over with short sides is a sexy way to handle those locks. Its natural flow gives you an effortless vibe as if you just woke up looking absolute best. It also requires very little work to maintain and style.

You deserve to rock the hair you want this spring and we can help! Contact us today at 800-966-9505 to schedule an appointment, and our team of hair professionals will take care of you.

Is My Hair Loss Normal?

Everyone goes through the natural process of shedding hair, but it can still be rather scary. No one is particularly thrilled to find a clump of hair sticking out of the drain after a shower. So the question is, what amount of hair loss is normal? At what point should you seek treatment and make an appointment with a hair restoration clinic like HRC?

Most healthy people have approximately 100,000 hairs on top of their heads, and we naturally lose about 125 hairs a day in shedding. Because of the cycles of our hair, it goes through periods of growing and resting and shedding. Once the hair falls out, the follicle goes back to a growth stage, then it rests during a period where growth stops, and then the hair is shed again. Rinse and repeat!

This means that at any given time, anywhere between 80-90% of your hair follicles are growing while the rest is either in the resting stage or shedding. If you're losing more than 125 hairs a day, then your hair loss is no longer considered just shedding – but rather, it could be an issue with deeper roots that needs to be examined and treated accordingly.

One common explanation is stress. Both emotional and physical stress can often lead to hair loss. Other possibilities you are experiencing hair loss include a change in diet or a change in any medications you use (including some antidepressants, birth control, and acne prescriptions).

Sometimes, hair loss can be perfectly normal. However, if you're concerned that your hair loss is due to something more serious, we offer a free hair and scalp consultation to determine the cause of your hair loss! To schedule your consultation today, please call 800-966-9505.

Can Lack of Sleep Cause Hair Loss?

Sleep is the body's period of natural restoration. It's a time when our bodies rejuvenate and repair themselves, so when our sleep suffers, our hair does too! Lack of sleep can stunt the growth of hair and decrease its volume, bounce, and shine – and in some cases, it can even lead to hair loss.

When we don't get enough sleep, it affects the body's immune functions, hormone production, and both mental and physical stamina. Hair, meanwhile, is incredibly sensitive to changes that occur within the body and internal disturbances are nearly always the cause of hair loss.

This leads to stress on the body, and we all know that stress goes hand in hand with lack of sleep. Essentially, sleep deprivation can stress the body to the point of hair loss!

However, there are measures that you can take to help prevent this issue. In addition to getting the proper amount of sleep that your body needs, we also recommend sleeping on a satin or silk pillowcase. Not only will these feel wonderful and luxurious, it will also help you avoid damaging your hair while you sleep by creating less friction.

You can also pamper your hair with a nighttime hair mask or leave-in conditioner to get that extra boost.

If you think you may be experiencing sleep-related hair loss or want to discuss treatment options, call our team of hair professionals today for an appointment at 800-966-9505!

Men's Hair Trends to Look Out for in 2018

New year, new you, right? Whether you’re updating your look for a new career move or just looking for something different, there are many reasons to update your look for the new year.

Take a look through these trending hairstyles and use these as inspiration for your next look:

Loose Sweep
This classic hairstyle is perfect for men who are looking for something stylish but also manageable. Great style like this doesn’t have to take your entire morning – just a simple blow dry to add some volume to the top of your head, and some light product (think small amounts of either wax or fiber) to achieve that effortless look.

Comb-Back Undercut
If you have a little bit more time, then this hairstyle may be for you. Frame your face with a tapered side cut so it gives your head a more flattering shape. Then grow out the top of your head and slick back your hair using a comb and some pomade for the optimum hold.

High-Part Comb-Over
Men are starting to give the comb-over a much needed update by placing their part higher on the head, and also thickening the part itself. The disconnect is more defined and adds an interesting element to a guy’s hairstyle. Use a comb and pomade to hold the style.

Classic Long and Straight
What used to be cool a few years ago is now making a comeback – or maybe it never actually fell out of style. Whatever the reason, it’s always great to see a man rock a longer cut, since it gives you many options for styling for different occasions and moods. Pair the long hair with some clean and short facial hair and you’ll have a dapper Hollywood-style look.

Hair Trends for 2018

2018 is right around the corner, so what hairstyles can we expect to be the hottest and most popular in the coming year?


Hair stylists agree that bangs will be big in 2018. There are lots of variations to choose from but the most popular will be curtain fringe. This long, tapered style works for every hair texture and length and can be worn long, soft, side-swept, or even separated in the middle. This chic and classic look is multi-functional, low maintenance, and you can personalize it by wearing it your own way.


2018 might just be called the year of the bob, with so many celebrities getting rid of their long hair and embracing the effortlessly cool look of short hair. Whether it’s worn slicked back and modern or soft and casual, the consensus is that jaw-length hair is in.

Natural Curls

Embrace your natural wave because curly, textured hair will be in! We’re seeing soft and center-parted hair, as well as a more relaxed, less-structured style as this year’s trend. Try this look with a heavy fringed bang to incorporate two popular styles for a gorgeous new look that wows all of your friends and family!


With a beautiful shape that emphasizes your hair’s natural texture, this style is making a comeback in 2018. Think a textured “lived-in” look for this modern shag with lots of layers. A little messy and a little rock n’ roll, sport this ‘do and you’ll be right on trend for 2018.


Accessories will be everywhere in 2018. They are a perfect low-maintenance way to dress up a look quickly. A simple ponytail can be stylizes with fashionable accessories or even a long bow in a high-end material like velvet.

Holiday Hairstyles

It’s holiday party time, so we’ve put together some of the hottest hairstyles of the season:


This updo is way easier than it looks! To get the textured bun, spritz texturing spray all over your clean, dry hair, and tease the crown with a comb. This particular hairstyle is ideal for those with naturally curly hair; however, if you have straight hair like our model does, you'll need to spend some time curling small pieces of hair with a small-barrel curling iron.

  1. Pull hair into a high ponytail and brush the hair up.
  2. Then over the ponytail wrap a mesh donut around the base.
  3. Then split the ponytail into 4 or 5 equal sections.
  4. Wrap each section, 1 by 1, around the mesh donut and use bobby pins to secure to the bun. Leave ends poking out.
  5. Now with a firm hold hairspray, spray the style and you’re all set.  


  1. Start with clean, dry hair.
  2. Apply a texturing balm through hair.
  3. Wrap small sections of your hair around a curling iron, but don't use the clamper. Not using the clamper will result in looser, natural-looking curls!
  4. Finish off with your favorite hairspray.


  1. Gather the top quarter section of hair into a ponytail and secure with a hair elastic.
  2. Take a 2 inch section from each side of your head and pull toward the back.
  3. Twist both sections and then put them together with a hair elastic to create a 2nd small ponytail.
  4. Continue with 2 inch sections until all hair in secured.
  5. Take the top section of hair and the ends of the 2 inch ponytail sections, twist and secure with bobby pins.


Your barber probably knows it by name, but there are variations. Usually it goes from the lowest setting on the electric clippers and fades up, leaving the top long enough to work in pomade and style.


Trim the sides with a pair of scissors and leave the top long. Style with a little coconut oil and by tightly twisting individual pieces with your fingers or a comb.


Let your scruffy beard grow full and wear your whiskers! Trim beard and apply beard lotion/oil to avoid looking too bushy. Dab a bit of pomade into your hair and mold it up and to the center from both sides with your fingers.

Happy holidays and to a new year of healthy hair! If you have thinning hair and would like help resolving your hair loss or looking at hair replacement options, our skilled stylists will give you the look you want! To schedule an appointment or consultation, please call 800-966-9505.

How Stress Can Affect Hair Loss

High stress levels and hair loss can be related. In general, there’s 3 types of hair loss that are usually associated with high stress:

Telogen effluvium: With telogen effluvium, major stress can push high numbers of your hair follicles into a resting phase. After a few months of this, affected hairs may fall out suddenly when washing or combing your hair.

Alopecia areata: Multiple factors are thought to cause alopecia areata, including severe stress. The body’s immune system attacks your hair follicles, causing hair to fall out and resulting in bald patches.

Trichotillomania: If you have an overwhelming urge to pull your hair out from your scalp, you may be suffering from trichotillomania. Hair pulling can be an outlet for dealing with uncomfortable or negative feelings like tension, boredom, frustration, stress or loneliness.

If you’re experiencing mild hair loss, it’s most likely due to telogen effluvium or even stress-weakened hair. But a small percentage of hair loss sufferers can experience alopecia or trichotillomania.

2017 Fall Hair Trends

Are you looking for a change for fall? Get ready for these new hair fashions for fall 2017!

The Low Ponytail

We’re seeing many types of low ponytails for this upcoming fall: messy, sleek, side. Achieve a sophisticated look with a ponytail that starts at the base of your head or move it down to your shoulders or lower!

Updated French Twist

The French twist is getting a fresh update for a looser, cooler, and more youthful look. Don’t be afraid to make it a little messy. Add some statement accessories like a pin or ribbon to give it a chic boost.

Knot Buns

This fall is all about embracing an easygoing, laissez-fair style. Say goodbye to well-kept buns and say hello to messy, thrown-together knots.


Partial updos are in! From simple styles like a loose half or quarter ponytail to more detailed looks like crimped hair, little braids, and sophisticated twists – the sky’s the limit with this trend.

Top Style

A sharp contrast to the fall trends above, this one requires a tip-top bun, knot, or ponytail. Think 1960’s classic and you’ve got it down. This style tends to be sleek, tight, and professional.

If you have thinning hair and would like help resolving your hair loss or looking at hair replacement options, our skilled stylists will give you the look you want! To schedule an appointment or consultation, please call 800-966-9505.

Menopause and Hair Loss

Hair loss is often one of those symptoms of menopause that catch women off guard, bot more than 40% of menopausal women experience it. Why don’t we talk more about it? Essentially, hair loss looks and works differently for women than for men. It doesn’t usually look like full baldness, but rather consist of subtler changes such as thinner hair, a wider part line, and more hair shedding. The impact can be rough on self-esteem, especially when combined with the other hormonal changes that are happening. So what causes menopausal hair loss, and what are your treatment options?

Hormones and Other Key Factors

The primary reason behind menopausal hair loss is the change of hormones – mainly in the levels of estrogen and progesterone. These hormones decrease, while hormones like testosterone increase. These dramatic shifts in hormones can cause hair follicles to stop working properly, stunting hair growth and resulting in thinning hair.

However, hormones aren’t the cause of menopausal hair loss. There are other key factors that could be playing a part in the thinning hair and hair loss of women experiencing menopause. These factors include nutritional deficiencies, thyroid health, and other medical complications that may be affecting you. Always discuss your symptoms with a doctor to get a professional medical opinion and help you understand your options better.

Identifying & Treating Hair Loss

Hair loss is often difficult to see before it becomes significant. If hair loss isn’t recognized soon enough, there may not be sufficient time for the treatments to have their full effect. That’s why we recommend that women who are going through menopause come to HRC for a complimentary evaluation. We’ll help determine if there are any warning signs of hair loss, and we can recommend a treatment from there.

The good news is that women’s hair loss is a treatable condition, and at HRC we can help determine the best course of action for your hair loss treatment. Depending on your needs, these treatments can range from simple lifestyle changes to topical solutions, laser hair therapy, hair replacement, and beyond.

For more information about menopausal hair loss treatment options, or to book your complimentary hair and scalp evaluation, call our hair loss practitioners today at 800-966-9505.

5 Ways You May Be Inadvertently Hurting Your Hair

Could you be accidentally harming your hair? You may be making these common hair care mistakes, but don’t worry! Being aware is the first step in regaining your hair health, and we also provide many treatment options for varying levels of damaged and thinning hair.

So let’s take a look at what hair care mistakes to avoid!

1. Overusing Heat Appliances

While you aren’t going to start going bald just because you’ve used a flat iron every now and then, it’s important to be cautious with your use of heat appliances. Daily use will dry out your hair and leave it brittle, damaged, and broken. If you can’t stay away from heat appliances, try to use the lowest heating settings as often as possible and limit use as much as you can. Look into alternative ways to dry and style your hair to keep it healthy and undamaged.

2. Styling it with Tight Updos

Again, the occasional tight braid or ponytail will not damage your hair irreparably. However, regularly pulling back your hair into tight styles can wear on your hair and also affect your hairline. The strain can eventually do permanent damage! Make sure that your updos don’t pull on your scalp. Looser braids, ponytails, and buns will allow your hair the room to breathe. Also, avoid styling wet hair in an updo, and let your hair down as often as you can.

3. Over-Brushing Your Hair

Brushing your hair too much can pull it out of your scalp, and can cause an increase in shedding. Try to be as gentle as possible when you brush your hair, and don’t use too many strokes to get the job done. If you have a habit of brushing your hair with a hundred strokes every day, it can result in damaged and even thinning hair! Additionally, be sure to replace old brushes as needed, since worn-out ones can do a lot of damage.

4. Over-Shampooing Your Hair

Shampoo is designed to get rid of all the grease and dirt that’s accumulated on your scalp, but too much shampooing can cause damage to the hair cuticle and sometimes even result in hair loss. Try decreasing the amount of times you shampoo your hair to every other day, or even to just a couple times a week.

5. Bleaching Your Hair

If you bleach your hair regularly, you will ultimately cause lasting damage. Powerful chemicals are stripping your hair of essential nutrients, making it weaker and less healthy. Eventually, bleach will cause your hair to become so brittle that it breaks. Try giving your hair a break from the bleaching, and if possible, ditch the bleach completely and find a different style that doesn’t require it for healthiest results!

Oprah Winfrey

Well known for being honest and candid with her viewers, it's no surprise that Oprah has been so open about her struggle with hair loss.

As graceful as ever, Oprah faces hair loss with a great sense of humor and the enthusiasm to try the next great style.

Jennifer Aniston

Unfortunately, Jennifer Aniston's famous "Rachel" haircut took its toll. The extensions that she wore on set for years eventually damaged her natural hair, stunting hair growth and contributing to bald patches. How has Jennifer dealt with her hair loss? Besides the usual treatments and solutions, she stresses the importance of moral support and a great group of friends she can rely on to uplift her.

However, Naomi remains as stylish and beautiful as ever despite her hair struggles.

3 Famous Hollywood Men With Great Hair Pieces

The thing about hair loss is that it doesn’t discriminate and it can affect just about anyone of any age or gender in this world. And of course, even the heart-throbbing men of the silver screen need some surgical help to continue looking dashing.

Below, are some images of men before and after hair restoration. It’s not that these men didn’t look handsome before, but you can see the huge difference that a full head of hair made and why they underwent some sort of hair replacement procedure.


John Travolta’s most notable roles in the past involved some amazing hair (Pulp Fiction, anyone?) so it’s no surprise to us that he used custom hair pieces to recapture his youthful appearance while entering an older age.


Jeremy Piven, who we’ve known from shows like Entourage and Mr. Selfridge, looks many years younger in his recent roles than he did in his older ones. Seems the dapper man wanted to take care of his receding hair line through a simple, yet very well-done, hair transplant surgery.


Comedic actor Steve Carell found nothing funny about his male patterned baldness. So, he took matters into his own hands and added some hair pieces, which made him look younger, yes, but probably didn’t make him any funnier. The point of this is to show you that there’s nothing to be ashamed about for wanting to get hair restoration surgery for yourself. A head of nice, healthy hair is hard to come by these days, so make sure to come by HRC in Los Angeles for a free hair and scalp consultation. Our esteemed staff will help you figure out the best options to treat your hair loss.

Protect Your Hair & Scalp from the Summer Sun

Summer is here, and we all know that the California sun will be out in full force! Thousands of beach goers, BBQ lovers, and outdoor fans are going to slather their skin in protective sunscreen and break out their best sunglasses and wide-brimmed hats to guard against the relentless summer sun – but what about our hair and scalps? The sun is just as damaging to what’s on our heads, and can cause our hair to become lackluster and our scalps to dry and (God forbid) flake! Here are some precautions you can take to protect your hair and scalp from the summer sun when venturing outdoors this season.

Wear a Hat
The easiest and simplest protection you can use is wearing a stylish hat. Wide brims are ideal, as they cover more of your hair, but baseball caps can be just as effective. Try to tuck your hair underneath the hat for bonus protection. But remember, if you have thin hair, fitted hats can rub against your scalp and could create more problems down the line. Scarves and bandanas are good alternatives as well.

Use SPF Products
There are many products that are formulated specifically to protect your hair from the sun. These serums, sprays, and conditioners can usually be found at your local supermarket or drugstore. Shampoos and conditioners that provide UV protection are less effective since they are rinsed off, so try to choose other products like sprays or leave-in serums.

Be Aware of the Part
The part in your hair is an area where your scalp is exposed to the sun, so we recommend applying a bit of sunscreen directly onto any exposed scalp. If your hair is longer, you can protect your scalp by pulling back your hair into a ponytail or bun so that no areas of your scalp are showing.

Plan Around the Sun
The sun is at its highest point in the sky from 10am to 3pm, which is when UV rays are at their strongest. If you avoid being exposed during this window of time, you will lessen your chances of sun damage to your hair and scalp. However, if you don’t want to stay indoors or in the shade during these times, we recommend carrying your protective products with you to reapply throughout the day.

Don’t neglect your sensitive scalp or hair this summer! Be sure to protect yourself from sun damage to maintain healthy, beautiful hair all year round.

Does Hair Dye Cause Hair Loss?

One of the most often-asked questions is, “Can dying my hair cause it to fall out?” The easy answer is, no. If you use hair dye products that are sold in a reputable store and contain safe ingredients or visit a licensed salon, you should not experience hair loss from dying your hair.

Hair dye does contain chemicals that can damage your hair follicles or your scalp and cause hair loss if used incorrectly or over-used. Dying your hair can cause breakage which will ultimately result in hair loss. However, all hair, dyed or natural is prone to some breakage. Dying your hair should not cause hair loss unless you use incorrect products during or after the process.

So, what exactly does happen to your hair when you dye it? Hair dyes use chemicals to bond the new color to your hair (both externally and internally) and that means your hair must be penetrated by the chemicals. There is a difference between dying your hair darker or lighter. Going darker tends to do less damage to your hair follicles, where as, the peroxide used to go lighter can be more destructive.

Ultimately, coloring your hair will not cause hair loss because your hair is already dead! Once your hair grows past the follicle it is dead and no longer growing. Growth occurs from underneath your scalp where the hair is alive beneath the skin’s surface. This is also where the root (no pun intended) of hair loss can result. Your hair bulb can be affected by chemicals or hormones in your blood which can result in hair loss. However, since dying your hair only affects the hair on the surface, it doesn’t result in hair loss.

If you feel that your hair is getting damaged by your hair dye, ask your colorist to try an ammonia-free option. Ammonia is used to make it easier for the dye to seep into your hair, but it can also strip hair of natural nutrients which in turn weakens the hair.

In general, hair dye doesn’t make your hair fall out, however, everybody is different and there could be a reason the dye you’ve used to color your hair is causing breakage or thinning.

10 Benefits Of Going Gray

Gray will save you time & money. Life is short and gray hair is easy and (mostly) free. Think of all the money you would still have in your pocket if you had never colored your hair? That Caribbean vacation would have already happened!

Gray is the new black. Have you seen Helen Mirren's gorgeous silver locks lately? Or George Clooney’s handsome, shining gray? What about Anderson Cooper or Annie Lennox? Even singer/songwriter and rebel icon Patti Smith now has a head full of silver—and that really rocks.

Gray is real. We live in a society that worships youth and makes us afraid of aging. For many people, going gray is not as much about style as it is about attitude. Going gray lets us celebrate our wisdom and maturity and throw out the script that says older men and women can't be sexy and strong and happy.

Gray is flexible. Thinking about trying it? There are many approaches to converting—from stealth to cold turkey—and you can pick the one that fits your comfort level. Here’s four approaches to letting your gray go wild:

  • Eliminate the artificial color in one fell swoop by shaving your head.
  • Wear a wig in your dyed color until your gray has grown long enough to cut off the old color.
  • Have a professional colorist camouflage the transitioning hair with artfully placed lowlights as the gray grows in.
  • Just wait out the growth, trimming off the old color until you're left with purest silver (a short haircut speeds the process along).

Gray is exciting. Letting your hair go gray is a little like searching for hidden treasure—you can't be sure at the outset what you're going to find at the end of the trail, but the journey is always interesting. Some find that their real hair color is a shiny salt and pepper mix, and others might describe theirs as "precious metals"—a little bit each of silver, gold and copper. If your gray hair is tinged with yellow, which is sometimes the case if your hair was naturally blond or a warm brunette, your colorist can correct this with salon treatments that bring out blue or violet rather than gold hues. This will give your natural color a silvery shimmer.

Gray is earth-friendly. You recycle. You avoid foods with unpronounceable ingredients. So why are you putting something called Phenylenediamine just a few millimeters from your brain eight times a year? Depending on the product you use, you might be smearing your noggin with lead, mercury, coal tar or formaldehyde. The jury's still out on how dangerous hair coloring may or may not be, but why risk putting an alphabet soup of potential toxins on your head and down the drain into the groundwater?

Gray is stylish and sexy. Just six words: Jamie. Lee. Curtis. And. John. Slattery.

Gray goes with everything. Once you go gray, you may also discover that your hair not only matches your eyebrows, but that it has a rich new texture and amazing shine. You can play up the beauty of your gray even more with gray-friendly clothing in cool tones from the blue (rather than the gold) end of the spectrum.

Gray is powerful. Think about it. Would Meryl Streep's character in The Devil Wears Prada be taken so seriously without that mane of snowy hair? Not so scary, but plenty powerful. What about the gray that Joe Manganiello’s been rocking lately? Definitely taking his status from beefcake to flat out handsome. Many people find that they're taken more seriously in the workplace after they reveal their gray.

Gray is just hair. Going gray doesn't have to be permanent unless you want it to be. That’s the beauty of it—you're in charge. It's not just about hair, but about how you want to live and creating a life that reflects the person you've become.
