Going gray is big decision, and many, if not most, women freely admit they’re afraid of looking old, or that people will treat them differently because of their salt-and-pepper tresses. Some will even confess to seeing it as the first step towards mortality. Needless to say,

, in Burbank, California. "We need to change that by highlighting natural beauty, and that includes accepting the natural process of our graying hair
If that doesn’t quite cut it, consider this: Gray hair is actually on trend right now
. "[Young women] look up to new characters like Daenerys Targaryen
from Game of Thrones
, who sport silver and gray hair as if it was a mystical creation of some powers," says Ilasco. "You might as well jump on the bandwagon."
