Since the dawn of time, women have been taught to fear aging. Our ideas of beauty as a society are heavily tied to youth -- after all, that's probably why, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons in 2015, more than 6.7 million Botox procedures were performed. Just a year prior, 100,000 of those reported procedures were performed on people just 20–29 years old. 

Ironically, 2015 was the same year "granny hair" became the hot new thing -- a trend that caused folks in the same age bracket to ditch their blonde or brunette locks to achieve silver fox status. And it's still a hot color to rock. 

Gray hair is in fact so dynamic, people of all ages are wholeheartedly embracing the color. From wintry, silver locks to dark and smoky hues, gray hair is definitely not a "granny" thing anymore. Whether hair is aging gracefully or a stylist makes it happen with help from a box, there is no need to feel ashamed of "going gray." 

So if the thought of aging sparks heart palpitations, perhaps consider that these 30 gray hair colors are the hottest trend happening. Add pops of pastels to breathe some youthful tones into it, or simply rock a silver head with pride. Either way, gray hair is still white-hot.
