The moment you discover your first strand of white hair, it surely is an experience and a process of acceptance. And no matter what you feel about it, it is a milestone that you will not forget about.

Greying of hair is an inevitable part of life, from which there’s no running away. Sooner or later, everyone goes grey.

While it’s associated with “getting old”, you don’t have to resent your silvery strands. Turn around the notion of looking old into being handsome, mature and hot, if we may say so.

We have decided to normalise the stigma of grey hair. So, here’s a list of 7 celebs who not only accepted the nature of greying but aced the salt and pepper look with style.

Our respect goes to Steve Carell. Polish your hairstyles with these tips.

1. Milind Soman

Milind Soman, one of the country’s biggest style icons, has served his fans with stunning salt n pepper hair time and time again. The famous model doesn’t shy away from his greys but rather looks super sultry while sporting the salt & pepper look.

The combination of well-groomed moustache, beard and hair is golden. Keep it nourished with hair serums and creams.

2. Tan France

The man famous for his salt and pepper signature hairstyle, Tan France definitely has some tricks up his sleeve to maintain that sky-high volume. The man who taught everyone how to french-tuck a shirt, is a hair icon too.

And luckily we have cracked it down in 3 easy steps. Blow Dry. Oil. Pomade. While the oil will add much-needed moisture to your hair, the pomade will set the hairstyle in place.

3. R. Madhavan

You must be living under a rock if you don’t know about how the 3 Idiots star, R Madhavan is considered to be the country’s daddy. With his bare-chested selfies and messy but hot videos, he keeps his audience engaged.

What Madhavan also does effortlessly is style his hair so well. For the same, messy hairdo, use a hydrating shampoo and hair wax products to add that easy volume. Grow your hair faster and longer like him by using a wooden comb instead of your basic plastic ones.

4. Mark Ruffalo

We all love Mark Ruffalo, be it for his role as the Hulk or your romantic next-door neighbour, Matt Flamhaff. With his short spikey brown hair, the actor transitioned into his famous salt and pepper look.

Rather than fighting your greys, look for a more mature look like him. This look works best for men with curly hair. Keep your head full of hair well moisturised with argan oil shampoo and conditioner and a hair detangling fluid to keep things smooth.

5. Akshay Kumar

Akshay Kumar not shying away from the greys in his hair has manifested the mature yet fun appeal with his hair. Mostly keeping his head-hair coloured dark, he sports the salt and pepper look with his tastefully groomed beard.

However, to take care of your coloured hair properly, you need the right products. Use a hair trimmer to keep things polished and hair oil for nourishment.

6. George Clooney

George Clooney in the ’80s, much before Ocean’s Eleven and Gravity was all about dark long curly hair. And if we know a celebrity who has aged like fine wine, it is him. Embracing his greys at the starting point of his acting career became his signature look.

Keep it clean and polished with classic timely haircuts and styling wax and cream for good texture and finish. It’s as if the term silver fox was invented for George Clooney.

7. Steve Carell

Starting his career with Dunder Mifflin, everyone is aware of Steve Carell’s struggle with hair volume and growth. Since leaving the show, The Office, with his direction towards more serious roles, he had kept it classy and mature with his hairstyle too.

Overnight hair mask home remedies work wonderfully to treat hair fall. Comb your hair with a neem wood comb to promote the growth of your locks. However, keeping the rest of the facial hair clean, trimmed and soft is a wise idea.

Final Thoughts

These celebrities have become bonafide silver foxes with their salt and pepper hairdos. Challenge yourself to wear the look with pride, confidence and a bit of the wisdom appeal.

However, we get that the men, especially in their 20s, might dread even that occasional white strand. If flaunting the greys in your hair if not your speed, here are ways to fight pre-mature grey hair.
