I'm a guy starting to go grey. I feel like it makes me look older than I feel. Should I die it? Ease into it? TIA

But I’ll be honest with you - I appreciate men who embrace the grays

Taking care of your skin will go a lot farther than dying grays. Sunscreen! Otherwise be your beautiful self.

Dye it. Then get a massive tattoo that covers most of your arm and those weird earrings that stretch out your earlobes. Congratulations, you just bought yourself 5-7 more years in this business.

I'm a nearly 30 female and I do not dig greys at all. But perhaps it's the nature's way of telling me to stay away from older men.

I’m in my mid 30’s and about 75% grey now. I’ve grown to dig it, but one thing that still trips me out is how weird it looks in photos, especially those taken with a flash in a dark room.

Also, somehow my hair has gotten thicker and fuller since I’ve gone gray. I have a huge head of wirey unruly hair that does take more time to tame in the morning.

Going grey is better than going bald I guess?

I had a great review and a 5.5% raise and a great bonus at my company. But I also got a new Director and a peer manager of mine left the company, so I will be absorbing her team. In addition, my director said I will be receiving 'deep delegation' from them. I don't mind more work, but deep delegation is a new term I've never heard. What does that mean lol?
