As we age, most people worry a lot about getting grey hair and figuring out how to cover it up. Grey hair is typically associated with being old, aging, or in some cases, being extremely stressed. But in Hollywood, grey is all about being trendy. Here are 14 celebs who fell for this fad. Who would have ever thought grey hair would be considered stylish?
As is expected in today’s world, Rihanna debuted her grey hair on Instagram. She claims that gray is the new black, and that her hair color, “ice gray ish,” as she calls it, is named Brr. Those ice cold locks didn’t last long though, right now Rihanna’s hair is back to it’s normal color, and she’s rocking much shorter, curlier hair.
Nowadays you can’t put anything past Lady Gaga, so when she graced the cover of Vanity Fair rocking flowing grey hair, no one was really surprised.

Crazily enough, the grey hair is only the beginning of Gaga’s shocking style choices, especially when it comes to her hair.
Kelis is another singer and artist on the list who seems to do a lot of changing up when it comes to her hairstyles. She’s gone from pink, blue, red, and green highlights to a look completed with a cropped cut, glittered with grey and silver tones.
When she appeared at the People Choice Awards, Kelly Osbourne not only wowed everyone with her slimmed down figure, she was also sporting a full head of grey locks. She kept up with her grey-toned hair, sporting an even lighter shade at the Golden Globes. While her mom didn’t exactly approve of her hair color, Kelly has kept the shade up consistently.
In the past, Pink was well known for sporting hair that came in all hues and tones that matched her name. However, she once decided to switch it up and go a bit radical by dyeing her hair grey. Though it was a huge change from her normal color, the grey hair somehow really seemed to work for her. She’s now rocking bright blonde hair.
During the Costume Institute Gala, better known as the Met Ball, Nicole Richie shocked everyone who was watching. When she came out for the PUNK: Chaos to Couture exhibit, she not only sported a lacy-white outfit, she had a bright silver-grey hair ‘do to match that definitely wowed everybody. Most considered her to be the best dressed of the night.
Stacy London, best known for being a fashion consultant and stylist, has been rocking grey hair ever since she was a preteen. Though she doesn’t have a full head full of grey locks, she instead has a signature side-swept streak of grey hair that sets her out from anyone else. She claims the grey streak of hair is a token of her individuality.
Kate Moss didn’t seem to be brave enough to dye her entire head grey, but in the past, she has sported her signature pixie cut with highlighted streaks of blue and grey. The grey tone added a new dramatic look to her cut and definitely caught everyone’s attention. A true fashion statement for a woman of her age.
Mary-Kate Olsen pulled off a style similar to Kate Moss by only dyeing the roots of her hair grey instead of taking the deep plunge and dyeing her whole head. Back at the 2009 Independent Spirit Awards, Mary-Kate stepped out in a little black dress and roots that were a shiny grey. At just 22, it’s unlikely that she was really going grey, so many speculated that it was a simple choice of hair dye.
Ellie Goulding recently made her name known around the world with her smash hit song, “Lights.” She naturally has blonde curly hair but in the past she traded in her natural locks for something a bit more striking. In 2010, she went with a dusty hue of greyish-blonde that really went well with her entire look. She made grey look young!
So Taylor Swift didn’t go completely grey. Like other celebrities on the list, she is known for playing with the natural tones found in her blonde hair. Back in 2009 at the Academy of Country music awards, Taylor had a bit of silver popping from underneath of her blonde tresses. Nowadays she’s back to the normal shade of blonde opposed to the ashen color she choose back then.
As a singer, model, and socialiate, Pixie Geldof has to make sure that her look remains unique as well as in style. Pixie stands as one of the most revolutionary models to ever come out of Britain. She further proved this by rocking a silvery-colored pixie cut while on the runway and abroad.
Singer, model, and actress Sky Ferreira rocked her grey hair in a way that no other celebrity has decided to do. Instead of just having a head full of grey locks or trying out grey highlights, Sky sported an ombre grey to blonde look, and somehow the colors made her eyes pop even more! Paired with a red lip, Sky’s look at Paris Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2013 was memorable.
Sky Ferreira wasn’t the only celebrity rocking grey hair at Paris Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2013. Adam Lambert, singer and 2009 “American Idol” runner up, also wore his silver spiky hair to the event. His hair color was a huge change, as most are used to seeing him with black hair. His silver hair also made an appearance in the magazine Fiasco.
