Stop dyeing, it felt like a liberation
Style Grey hair, don't care. , more and more women let their gray hair. Out of convenience, as an expression of self-acceptance or as a real fashion statement. Fashion journalist at British Vogue Sarah Harris gave a few years ago, the impetus, and in the meantime also in the us, the trend is noticeable. So show off since recently the so-called Silver Vixens their silver tresses on Instagram. We spoke with founder Cathérine Ongenae.

Gray hair's in fashion. And that is true both for the version that you get at the drugstore buys, as a natural, silver-colored lure. A good thing, an anthropologist and storyteller Cathérine Ongenae (47): “There is still too often looked down upon on women with gray hair.” To pole and perk to make calls Cathérine women of all ages to use its Instagrampagina @silver_vixens their fifty shades of grey both virtual and in real life to showcase.

Foxes and Vixens

Ending: “Just as that goes for people with a larger size, there are a lot of prejudices what women with gray hair. They look old and are therefore, by definition, out, count with them, they let themselves go, take care of themselves. Nonsense, of course. Your hair color says nothing about who you are inside. In men, the existence of prejudice is not, however, not a lot of gray to be concerned. A man who gray is, who gets more respect, he is wiser and more considered. The ‘George Clooney effect. There is even a name for such a man: Silver Fox. I heard the term Silver Vixens for the first time via my friend Mieke - also blessed with a grey cup - that women with silver hair for quite a while so appoints. Because it was the time that the grey, handsome man, a female counterpart got, we chose to use on Instagram for the name Silver Vixens. We want to demonstrate that grey will be also in women more than is okay. Even more, it is just clever!”

Granny Chic

“Hence, a lot of young women, their hair is grey paint. If such a trend the image of grey hair from the verdomhoekje, then I can only encourage you. Just as it goes with trends, they speak first fashion-conscious people, and then it to filter through to the rest of the society. Meanwhile, also people who are less obsessed with fashion their hair gray to dye or the trend to see as a go to their grey hairs. Do you remember the granny's of the past with their pastelgekleurde water wave? Also that unicorn crayons are on a comeback in progress. This whole ‘granny chic’ trend fits in perfectly with the ageing of the society and will, therefore, also not quickly blow over.”

Automatic upgrade

“is Your hair naturally gray let it be of course has nothing to do with let yourself go. On the contrary, it fits perfectly in the Body Positivity movement. That movement revolves just around self-care, yourself like to see you as you are and you have no ideals of beauty is to let someone else dictate. Beware, each Vixen has her own motivation for her gray hair, but for me it was stop dyeing a liberation. I found dyeing time consuming and tiring. And at a certain moment I asked myself why I actually did all that stuff to one or another imposed ideal of beauty to comply. It sounded suddenly so absurd. I wanted nothing at all more to my liking. In that regard, my project is quite rebellious. I want it to say: foert, this is who I am, take it or leave it . In addition, I was also very curious as to how I actually, really looked like under those layers of paint. Meanwhile, I have one large grey shoulder and I see my new haircut as an upgrade to a new phase, which is also very pleasant to stay in.”
