“My hair will grow again (laughs), so I think it would be nice to play around with it.”

Like wrinkles on the skin, white hair is natural.

Ms. Yoko Narahashi has impressive black hair with not only white but also blue and purple hair. Mr. Narahashi, who is negotiating appearances in Hollywood with Ken Watanabe and other actors who are expanding overseas, travels back and forth between Japan and the United States on a regular basis. Recently, she heard that it was fashionable in America to put blue and purple colors in a mesh style, so she tried it at her favorite beauty salon in Japan. She seems to like it.
She is extremely busy with her work and taking care of her grandchildren, and because of her rational nature, she orders “easy-to-set hairstyles” at the beauty salon. It was in her late 50s when Narahashi began to notice her gray hair.

She said, “She has dyed her hair black several times, but she didn’t feel comfortable dyeing her hair black, even though her skin was getting more spots and wrinkles. Since then, even though she has gray hair on her temples and around her ears, she’s let it come naturally.

“Some people worry that they will look older, but I think it’s time to enjoy a different kind of beauty than when you were young. It’s important to want to be beautiful, but I don’t think you hate gray hair.”

Tomi Seki who looks good with mushroom bob gray hair. She enjoys red and black fashion, which she learned from her daughter.

“Ever since I had this hairstyle, I’ve enjoyed being fashionable every day. Not only has her hair changed, but her fashion has also changed completely, so sometimes people say she looks like a different person,” says Seki-san with a smile. .

When she was 52 years old, she made up her mind to go gray hair. It was because her scalp had become rash from dyeing her gray hair. She didn’t like skin-friendly vegetable dyes either.

She can’t use hair dye anymore. Even though her daughter said, “Isn’t it too early to go gray?”, she decided to try gray hair on her own.

Seki’s method is very simple. When her hair grows, she prepares a pair of hair clippers and a three-sided mirror and just cuts off the dyed part. While she was worried about the “separation” between the gray hair and the dyed part, she was almost completely white over her ears over the course of a year. She doesn’t go to the beauty salon, and the cost is 0 yen!

Mr. Seki advises, “Please try it while having fun.”

Kayoko Uchihara, who has appeared in the magazine’s stylish snap feature in the past. She is also particular about her hair color, and until three years ago she was at her home, she says, “Rather than being exactly black, I used to dye my gray hair in a sloppy manner on purpose.” “However, it became more and more troublesome to dye it myself. I decided to make it whiter.
