More women–in and out of Hollywood–are either going gray or talking about it. Silver Hair shows how to toss the bottle, take back the hours and dollars you spend on the colorist, and emerge a truer, more beautiful version of yourself.  

Silver Hair will show you how to decide if you’re ready to give up the hair-color 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 color, including author Lorraine Massey, you’ll see the various ways to grow out gray, from “all natural” – minus the skunk line! – to low-lights, silver streaks, 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.

Along with the photos and techniques, there are dozens of stories of the amazing transformation these real women experienced–way beyond the hair on their heads: embracing new relationships, careers, and confidence.


Fabulous quick service and I love this book.


I have curly hair so this book is my bible :)

Are You Ready to Ditch the Dye?


Besides the celebrities that are now dying their hair silver (why!) there are plenty of examples of those letting nature takes its course, and they look stunning. Exhibit A: Jamie Lee Curtis. With an Exhibit A that's so gorgeous we don't really need an Exhibit B. If you're sick of the hair dye merry-go-round, especially those with dark hair whose roots show almost as soon as you dry your newly coloured hair, Silver Hair is a useful book to help you take the plunge. While I understand that it's only hair, it is a surprisingly scary thing to contemplate what you'll look like if you step away from that little bottle of dye. With plenty of photos of celebs and the woman next door either letting their silver shine or showing the multi-coloured transitional phases, this book shows that you can actually look good while your hair is mid grow out and gorgeous with silver. Besides the beautiful photos there is also plenty of information. Silver Hair dispels myths, addresses common concerns, provides advice on managing the partly grown out look and mindset that goes with it, prepares you for the compliments (yes, you read that correctly), and there are plenty of stories of ordinary women who have ditched the dye. You'll also learn tips and tricks for managing and caring for silver hair, along with some recipes for homemade hair care products. Other than focusing specifically on your hair you'll learn clothing, makeup and accessorising tips that will enhance your new look. My Nitpick: Okay, so maybe that's not the right term to be using for a book about hair. 🤨 Anyway, while I loved the different ages represented in the women in this book I was disappointed that in just over 200 pages there was only one man included. Thank you so much to NetGalley and Workman Publishing Company for the opportunity to read this book.
