Is granny hair the hottest beauty trend of the season?

Hello everyone!

In an effort to stay eternally youthful, most women usually touch-up their roots every time they spot a few silver strands peeking out.  Now, there’s a beauty (and Instagram) trend popping up; granny hair.  This new trend is provoking conversation about blurring the lines between ageing and greying.

Jean Paul Gaultier introduced granny hair into fashion back in 2011.  A year later Kelly Osbourne and Kate Moss both sported silver locks and since then everyone from Lady Gaga to Kylie Jenner has been experimenting with this look.
