Going Gray Intentionally: The New Hair Trend
For as long as I can remember, I’ve been dreading the day when I would find my first gray hair. (It’s coming, I know, but as a blonde, I’m lucky that the first one at least won’t be super obvious). It would seem, however, that we might be on the verge of a new hair trend, one where young women intentionally dye their hair gray.
The most famous example is obviously Kelly Osbourne, whose aged hair look received lots of attention back in early 2012. Ever since then, I’ve seen editorials and trendsetters embrace this once stigmatized hue. While I fully recognize that this style may never go mainstream, there is something edgy and avant-garde about it that I really appreciate. It definitely says to the world, “I don’t mind defying conventional norms.” And who wouldn’t want to make that kind of statement?

Kelly Osbourne Actually Got a Manicure with that $250,000 Nail Polish

Who needs a diamond ring when you can get a…manicure? We told you about jewelry designer Azature’s $250,000 Black Diamond polish before—and now it turns out that Kelly Osbourne actually got a manicure with the insanely expensive lacquer. There’s only one bottle of the polish in the whole world, which contains 267 carats of crushed black diamond powder, and Osbourne tweeted that she felt “excited and honored” to wear it. All we can say is that we hope she doesn’t have a habit of biting her nails. 

Though we think the value of Osbourne’s manicure was pretty ridiculous, we do have to say that now we’re totally intrigued by gem dust polishes. Luckily there are a few affordable sparkly lacquer options out there that aren’t just reserved for red carpet appearances. Check out three choices after the jump!

On a recent episode of CBS’s The Talk, Kelly Osbourne discussed her buzz-worthy gray ‘do with the hosts, telling them she had always wanted to rock gray in her youth as a statement look. Surprisingly, though, she also told the ladies of the show that she felt she only had a few years left to try fun, out-there looks with her hair. What age did she think was the cut-off?
