Silver & Sexy: The New Way To Think About “Aging Gracefully.”

Years ago, women ran (oftentimes screaming) to their colorist upon finding their first gray hair. The immediate reaction was to cover that mess up. You see, back then, while men who had gray hair were considered “sexy” and “distinguished,” women were just considered, well, “old.”

Thankfully ladies, the times are changing! The latest head-turning trend for hair is gray. Women are embracing their gorgeous gray hair and seeing the true beauty in those sexy silver shimmers and that sophisticated style.

Join the growing trend of gray-haired divas like me! That’s right girls sometimes I set my Malania wig aside and go for graceful and gorgeous silver locks… thanks to my new Jamie wig by Foxy Silver. The color I chose is Deep Gray with Silver Ash and it’s absolutely perfect on me!

Let Especially Yours help YOU find YOUR sexy new silver wig today!

Rihanna Reveals Her Dream Hair Color

Red? Been there. Blonde? Working it now. Rihanna has rocked a rainbow of hair colors, but there’s one that’s eluding her: blue.

“Navy blue is my color right now,” she tells PEOPLE. “Not any blue, not the punk blue. I have yet to see the right one. It does not exist yet!”

What’s her inspiration? “Everyone’s rockin’ blue right now,” she says. “It just works. I think it has something to do with Blue Ivy,” she adds jokingly.

While blue may be her dream color, don’t expect to see it anytime soon. “My next color is actually black,” the singer reveals. “I’m going to exhaust [the blonde] before I go black because black is easy.”

Not that the blonde is over yet, either. “I’m having fun with it,” she says. “It was an easy change from my natural color, and I thought I would regret going black before blonde, so I kind of just went there, and it keeps getting lighter and lighter.”

And who knows — she may even skip the black and navy all together. “From blonde you can go to anything,” she explains, “so I might want to try something else before [black]. You know how that goes.” Tell us: What hair color do you want to see on Rihanna next?

Willow Smith Debuts New Bald Look

Willow Smith is no stranger to bold hairstyles, but her newly cropped hair may be her most daring style yet.

The “Whip My Hair” star posted a few photos of her hair transformation on her WhoSay account, but this isn’t the first time Willow has made a dramatic hair change. When Willow was nine years old, she cut her hair into a half-shaven style.

Willow’s mom Jada Pinkett Smith said, “I’ll never forget her sitting in that chair and watching that hair fall off. She transformed right before my eyes and I was like, ‘Oh my goodness,’” said Jada. “For Willow to stand there and say, ‘I’m Willow Smith and this is me,’ what more could you give a little girl? And I learned that lesson from my mother, because that’s what she gave me.”

What are your thoughts about Willow’s new ‘do? Share them in the comments section!

Stylist Ted Gibson’s Fall Hair Do’s and Don’ts

Image Courtesy of WireImage

On What Not to Wear, hair stylist extraordinaire Ted Gibson helps women transform themselves through new haircuts and colors. And now, the stylist who’s worked with A-list celebs like Angelina Jolie and Zoe Saldana shares his hair do’s and don’ts for fall.

Do:
–Darken your do. “I always say women should change their color at least twice a year,” he says. “During the spring and summer make it lighter, and in the fall, change it to darker tones.”

–Go short … but not too short. “I think shorter hair is great,” Gibson says, “but mid-length hair is really sexy right now.”

–Try the new ombré. “We’re taking ombré to a new level,” Gibson explains. “It’s not necessarily brown with highlighted ends — it can be brown with pink, brown with a little beige on the ends, brown with blue.”  To that end, the stylist suggests dip-dying — “as long as it’s age appropriate,” he warns — or adding colored extensions to hair for a temporary fix.

Don’t:
–Let age define your look. “I say break the rules — just because you’re of a certain age doesn’t mean you need to have shorter hair,” Gibson says. But maintain that hair health: get a haircut every four to six weeks and use a deep conditioner on a regular basis.
