    I just turned 32 in August and one of my sisters just turned 34 a few days ago. She said every time she brushes her gray hair she thinks of me. I asked her "Why, because I'm next?" She said yep! All of my siblings and I are in our 30's and have bits of gray. I don't have any yet, but it will come

    Thing is Grimm, I think that a lot of guys can get away with it. I have a friend who was maybe 40 when we met & he was completely white haired by then, now he just doesn't age.

    If all else fails, there hair dye, it's not worth sweating over IMO.

    I've had gray hairs since my late 20's. There's more and more every time I look, and I've recently committed to regular hair dyeing every 2 months or so and I'm under 35... So yeah I hate you no grays in your 30's-40's bitches too.

    I'm guilty of 3 and 4. I found my 1st gray at age 16, but fortunately still only have a small smattering. I'm trying to avoid coloring as long as possible, but I think I won't be able to get around it in the next year or so. As far as the cardigans, I need those because I'm one of those women who is always cold. I even wear light ones during the summer.

    ^^^
    One cannot look younger. Young is young and people who are not young don't look young.

    It is possible to look good at any age. To equate young with= looking good is myopic. One can look good at any age.

    It just takes more time and effort to look good as you become older. You don't just roll out of bed at 55 and look good. It requires more enterprise and initiative than it does to be effortlessly 22.

    Look at Helen Mirren (my favorite example). She's not attempting to deny the years, she's making the best of what she has now. And she often outshines younger women with her polish, demeanor, and deliberately flattering style choices.

    You can look like shit at any age. The zillions of butt-crack ugly celebrity young women constantly on display on this website are a testament to the truth that youth does NOT equal beauty. No way.

    The article isn't about looking younger though, it's about not looking "older" (but I think that they mean "frumpy" & "stuck in a style rut" by that).

    I'm 30 (and a half) and I have 2 or 3 persistent grey hairs that I just pull out every time one pops up.

    My sister is 32 and completely salt and pepper, though more salt than pepper. She has been dyeing her hair for years now.

    We have 2 genes in the family, one where you're completely grey before 40, and one where you don't really become grey before 60 (after that it's downhill fast though). I think I may have the latter

    I've been wearing those Clark Kent geek glasses in tortoise for a few years and I just love them. They give real architecture to the face. I hated every pair of reading glasses because the lenses were one inch high. These are full readers. Black is too harsh for me, but the tortoise in browns and bronzes are flattering.

    Pardon this photo, might offend some, but as an average middle aged person that hates anything fussy, I use Aniston's simple classic style as inspiration (minus the strappy beaded sandals).
