Giles Deacon shot girls down the catwalk with blue-grey streaks. Rodarte did a bit too – more of a grey halo on one or two. And Proenza Schouler experimented with the greyish lilac granny rinse, a look I remember well, sported all bold and brazenly by a couple of art school mates after persistent encounters with bleach and ensuing gos with red.
And you’ll have seen the photos of Kate Moss a couple of weeks ago. That may have been fashion, but it looked plain awful. She’s now back to her golden gorgeousness (thank heavens).
All this probably won’t entice you to try ColourFX Sacred Silver spray, which when sprayed tactically will give you the aforementioned streaks. More silver than grey though. Perhaps the thought of Pixi Geldof’s self imposed grey, or John Galliano’s models at the recent Dior show, hair streaked white – the kind of pure, ice white you only ever really get to see on someone elegant and elderly – might tempt you? If you hate the result, you can wash it off and donate the silver spray to your local school’s drama department. At £3.49, it won’t hurt.
