Gray Hair? Why Women Should Embrace 'Platinum Elegance' (VIDEO)

A-list stars and politicians aren't the only ones who are embracing gray hair -- as Advanced Style blogger Ari Seth Cohen discovers in this clip, "platinum elegance" looks just as fabulous on everyday women as it does on red carpet luminaries.

Cohen talks to his friend Jenny, who let her prematurely gray hair go back to its natural color several years ago. "As I got older, it became evident that the dark hair no longer suited my skin color," Jenny, who had been dying her hair, tells Cohen in the clip. Not one for convention, the 57-year-old Jenny also bucked the trend of cutting her hair short: "I've had the best time of my life with my silver hair. I think the fact that my hair is long helps."

Other women, of course, have echoed these sentiments. "If you present yourself as being confident, bold, fearless and proud of your age, your gray hair could be beside the point," writes author Barbara Hannah Grufferman, who wears a blend of dark blonde tresses with natural shades of gray. "If you've already been coloring your graying hair, it might take a little longer to get to where you want it to be, but this might be the most bold way to embrace -- and proudly show off -- your age."

Take a look at Cohen's Advanced Style blog, which takes a mature look at personal style, here.
