Topic of Today - Grey Hipster



          There is a 'new' trend in real life. Granny hair. Where younger woman, normally too young to have grey or silver hair, are having professionals give it to them. It looks fantastic! If you just google granny hair you will find so many links, results and photos of mostly woman dying their hair grey. I know the real world and the second life world are different, but we live here, so that is what is important to me. ^.^ Below are some links to the real world. Seems like a lot of the information is regurgitated over and over, depending on what 'news' sites you look into.


          I have been doing it in Second Life since, at least 2011. I always felt it was a very fashion forward idea, and I was right. Below are a few example of me in "Granny Hair", with their flickr links and blog links. Starting from the oldest, to the newest. Below my photo you will find this trend done by others. I was not the only in Second Life, knowing this was a fantastic idea.










          Here are other example, where people with grey hair have rocked it before it became a real life popular trend. These other photos are easily found in the Second Life - White/Grey Hair Flickr Group. The group has been around since mid November 2007. This group pretty much proves that Second Life can be ahead of the real life trends, can start the trends, and Second Lifers can change the world around them!

          Grey hair can be a lot of fun. The color is so neurtal that it can go with nearly, if not all other color palettes. It is a lot process to do in the real world. If you are really interested go to a professional for sure! They will have to strip your hair of as much color possible, and a fantastic product for that, that has all the buzz is, Olaplex. But from what I understand, only professional hair dressers can buy this, and for a project like this anyway, that is what you want. Then when you get it as light as possible without damaging the hair too much, dye it grey, then add a purple toner. There are other hair products out there to help maintain it as long as possible. So I love the grey hair, and even I have thought about doing it in the real world, but it is something to really think about, because it will cost a lot, and at least at first it takes a lot of work.

          Do you rock grey hair in Second life? How long have you? Would you? Maybe you have thought about doing grey/granny hair in the real world? If you have, in the real world, or in second life, leave a comment below, I would love to see how you rock it (even if you do it just for today)!
