10 Gorgeous Ways to Go Gray
Going gray? We are… and we’re loving it! As we recently saw with OITNB star Dascha Polanco’s totally inspirational look at NYFW, the gray dye trend is totally taking off. We’re ready to shatter that anti-gray mentality and jump on this adventurous silvery-gray bandwagon — who’s with us? These 10 gorgeous gray hairstyles might have you embracing the daring dye next. Really!
1. Gray + Purple Tips: We love this gray moment on Dascha. Her gray-and-purple ombre ‘do is such a memorable look. She told Latina magazine that she likes to take risks with her hair, and we think it’s time we all adopt that mantra. (via E! Online)
9. Gray Tips: This dip-dyed gray look is a great way to get your toes wet in the gray world. Lila Parsons makes the brown to blonde to gray look easy, but if you’re still not sold, give it a trial run with hair chalk! (via HJi)
10. Lilac Gray: Kelly Osborne rocked this gray-toned look right before she went full-on lilac, and we’re loving her (comparatively) more subtle dye job. If she deems the hue red carpet-worthy, we think it’s def time to bring it to everyday wear. (via Mirror)

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
