Stylspiration: Janelle Monae

There is no denying the class, beauty and elegance of Ms. Janelle Monae. I’ve been a fan of hers since the “tightrope” days and have been spending a lot of my days lately oooh-ing and ahhh-ing over her style as she has begun to step away from the tuxes a bit, yet staying true to the primary colors of Red, white, and black. These i recognize as her signature colors the same way Lisa Raye is in a committed relationship with White.

50 Shades of Gray….

There once was a time when having Gray hair was something that was avoided at all cost, but now……many are going GRAY by CHOICE. Can you believe it! When I first took note of this trend I was a little on the fence about it but suprisingly I am actually liking it. Now that doesnt mean I am going to run out tomorrow and dye my tresses gray but I am open to the idea at some point down the line, maybe. Just a few tips….

If you in fact decide you want to dabble with gray color make sure it is fitting to your skin tone and face. Not everyone can go full on gray nor can everyone where a light gray. I remember discovering “Gorgeous in Grey” the beauty/blogger whose hair is naturally gray and fell in love with her gorgeous tresses. Check out some of the photos below and share your thoughts. What do you think of the trend? Do you ever see yourself rocking this new look?

Kelly Osbourne: Loving the way she styled her grey tresses


Nicole Richie: She chose a vibrant grey borderline white. NOT everyone can pull this off but she wears it well.
