Women around the world spend a fortune every year to cover up those pesky silver strands in an effort to mask the inevitable signs of aging. But a recent hair trend dares to take a second look at going grey, and the results are refreshing and unexpectedly gorgeous.

Ivania Carpio, a fashion blogger from the Netherlands, describes the Granny Hair trend as a backlash against the idea that everything "old" is unattractive and undesirable.

"After buckets of bleach and chemicals, my hair is finally grey. A color that is being stared at and commented on a lot because silver hair is something that most women would rather avoid. Being old isn't desirable, apparently, and grey is associated with that."

She added, "Good ideas last forever. I still love my Givenchy shoes from 2007, I just turned 23 but am jealous of Kristen Mcmenamy's looks."

The fashion and entertainment elite are embracing the grey, and #GrannyHair is trending on Instagram with women discovering that silver hair can be very flattering. Should you jump on the bandwagon? Check out these beautiful ways women are making the Granny Hair trend their own.
