Last week, fashion blogs were abuzz over the “new” gray-ombre trend, a look that melds charcoal roots into silver-white ends. The monochromatic look creates a stunning, edgy effect, but one that’s hardly new, and in my personal opinion hardly worth the effort. Silvery-gray hair requires a perfect platinum base to avoid going muddy, and constant maintenance to keep its cool tone. It’s a lot of effort for a shade that, when it occurs in nature, women spend lots of money and time concealing. Why do you think of the gray hair trend? See more examples of gray ombre in the notes and leave us a comment with your thoughts. ––  Laura Martin
