Is the 'grey tint' hair trend just for under 30's ?

I've got a hair appointment booked today - have long blonde hair - decided ( after watching 'neighbours' fake Dee colour ) that I'd like the grey/platinum tint on my hair ... only trouble is I am actually 49 ... so should I avoid this as too old ?!
I'm in a quandary now !! Booked in at 11:15 !!! So any one about to offer an opinion before then ?!
Thank you ! flowers

I think it can look amazing on any age, actually! Go for it! (And post a pic grin)

Go for it. I hope it stays bang on trend for people in their 40's/50's, as my hair does it naturally wink

Thanks peeps !
You have eased my worries ! Will post a snap when they are done with me !!!

I've got long grey hair (naturally) at 47 and get lots of compliments. Go for it!

I suspect that if its long hair it will actually look fab and on trend. If it was short I think people would just assume it is natural grey and then it wouldn't look quite as modern.

Hhhmmm, I'd love this colour but at 45, I'd just look like I had grey hair, rather than young n trendy grey hair and that's not a look I'm ready for yet. I don't think it's for under 30s only but I do think anyone 40 plus is going to look old-lady grey.

See I LOVE this hair cut. But I think id just look old and hate it. I'm not sure I could carry it off (I'm 44)
If I was brave enough (and didn't look so haggard) I'd love it.
Go for it OP --and post pictures please--😊

Newtssuitcase Wed 15-Mar-17 10:37:22

I think that's an example smile of where it will just look like natural grey and won't necessarily look on trend

I had exactly the same thoughts. I am 47 and probably now more grey than anything if I stop dying but was thinking if I had the grey (I like the very slightly pink tinged colour) I wouldn't be constantly battling the roots.
But would it just make me look old and grey?

BillyButtfuck Wed 15-Mar-17 10:39:51

I'd love to do this too but I'm not brave enough!

Newtssuitcase Wed 15-Mar-17 10:39:57

My hair is below bra strap. I would love to dye it grey but I'm not brave enough.

Do it -purely so you can be my guinea pig. Am pondering doing something similar on Friday. Bit scared it will make me look older (than my 42 years) but if it turns out old womany, I'll just have to dye it boring brown.

Nervously sorting waiting to be called !!! Lol !!
If it's dreadful I will just get it re done ! It's only hair ?!! confused

SmileAndNod Wed 15-Mar-17 11:35:56

Oh. I don't watch neighbours and I'm far too old to be on trend!
Still love to see the pictures though smile

thewookieswife Wed 15-Mar-17 14:23:22

Ok - it's done ... opinions ?!?!

thewookieswife Wed 15-Mar-17 14:26:26

That was in strong daylight - in gloom it's a bit blue/greener ?!?!

FrogTime Wed 15-Mar-17 14:28:17
