Color Palettes

Here is a home for links/photos of color palettes that may work with your "new" hair.


Corals look good on me. I think they will after transition too. This is a great combo look in this photo that would probably look great on a BUNCH of us.

i think that the color palettes would still be similar as it goes with skin tone. i'm cool, so i could never wear coral.
however, i think that it depends on how white your hair is. i know for me, i can no longer wear white (look like casper the ghost!) or pale pinks, pale blues, etc..... so colors are same, i just need to stay with medium/dark shades of those colors.

Help me find more. Of all the photos I've saved she's about the only one wearing something other than blues or gray. I don't get it.

Seriously! That's about it for color. Well, hell, no wonder you start getting treated as a non-existent person when you go gray. I just can't believe you have to dress in gray, navy, beige etc. That's just not right.
Love seeing these pics with such beautiful colors.
I've always worn dark red, green, and blue along with black almost exclusively and still do. I have added chocolate brown, turquoise/teal, and coral to the mix in the last few years. I've never worn much white, beige, tan, grey, or pastels. I just don't feel good in them, no matter my hair color.
I probably get the most compliments when I wear red, coral, or turquoise.
In Western PA

i'm wearing green today. :-)

the right red (a cherry red) looks great on me. not so easy to find, tho.

in all of these photos these women look young, pretty with gray hair. and, you will notice not one is wearing an "old lady" style, they all have different but great styles.

Chupie, NO, no beige! and gray doesnt look great on everyone! I love the pic of the woman with the short pixie type cut wearing purple and silver. Who said a silver fox cannot wear color??
These ladies look great! And proof that one doesn't have to stick with boring neutrals if one doesn't want to. I'm with jeepcurlygurl about wearing color. I haven't transitioned my grey out yet, but I won't stop wearing color once I do so. Since I had dark hair, and a light-to-medium skintone with a slight olive tone in it, I look best in rich, on the warm side colors, and warm-neutral makeup. I particularly love the first pic of the woman wearing the coral shawl and unusual printed top - she's a perfect example of someone who is warm in coloring(note how successful this is since her hair is completely light now)who makes color work for her.
IMO, the typical advice for mature greying women to just stick with the neutrals etc. is another campaign to render us invisible as we age. Sure, some might work for some people but that can apply to just about any age, for some basic garments, but for the rest, have a little fun for goodness sakes! Even women who have cool tones in their coloring who pull off the navy, grey better, could do with some more color. After all, there are lots of gorgeous cool more interesting colors out there as there are warm ones. Push back, ladies, whatever your hair color LOL! Wear whatever makes you look and feel great!

wondering about gold accessories, I have lots of gold necklaces, earrings etc, but whenever I see pics of grays, I see silver accessories, will gold still work?

Working on finding my inner curl.
Me, think that will depend on you skin tone.
