I don't think it's bad or wrong to color your gray hair, and I don't think it's bad or wrong to grow out your grays in any way you see fit.

I had to live through my own body-centric worries for many years and come to understand things through personal experience. I can't honestly say if a body image intervention at age 16 would've helped me. It might have. But it might have bounced right off of me because I needed to work through those lessons on my own.
I don’t believe in hard and fast rules when it comes to age-appropriateness. I’ve written about how I believe it’s up to each individual woman to assess her situation, preferences, and comfort levels and make her own determinations.
But I’ll tell you something I’m starting to puzzle out for myself: In many cases, if you look at something and feel like it might be age-inappropriate, it probably is. For you as an individual anyway. Those gut feelings bubble to the surface for a reason, and you should feel free to trust them if age-appropriate dressing is a priority for you. Arbitrary rules laid down by style experts and magazine writers only apply if they resonate with you, and the opinions of friends and peers are worth considering but they are never gospel. How you feel about what you do and don’t want to wear is important and valid at all times. Including times when you’re sussing out which styles feel right for you to wear at a specific age or stage of life.
