As they age, many women choose to have their gray roots covered up by a stylist, whether they want to stick with their natural hair color or try something new. But the women sitting down in one stylist’s chair are coming out of the salon even more gray than before, and they look gorgeous.
Jack Martin is a colorist, and three years ago, a woman walked in with a predicament: she kept covering up her gray roots with brown box dye, and the upkeep was too much for her schedule and her poor hair. After all, she was retired! And who wants to spend their retirement constantly dyeing their hair?
She and Jack brainstormed and came up with the brilliant idea to instead dye the rest of her hair silver, giving her natural gray a bit more sparkle while reducing the needed upkeep. He posted the results on Instagram, and it wasn’t long before other women sick of hiding their gray came in looking for similar dye jobs. Now, Jack is known for his age-embracing transformations and has amassed over 380k followers on Instagram.
