Poor grey has a bit of a dull reputation,
Upstaged by sister silver’s ostentation.
Showy silver routinely gets all of the praise,
Yet we’re often derogatory towards the greys.
Grey: battleship, dishwater, concrete, slate – None are complimentary.
Silver: precious, sparkling, shiny, stars –
A positive inventory.
We don’t say ‘grey is the new blonde’ as a rule,
It doesn’t have the pizazz of the silver jewel.
Maybe grey needs a rebranding campaign,
We love the hair colour, so why not the name?
It must be worthy of the silver fanfare,
This glorious greyvolution of our hair,
Silver sisters, grey groupies, we’re proud to join,
Silver and grey are two sides of the same coin.
