Everyone will eventually have gray hair. Genetics can be a major factor, but the fact is your hair doesn’t really “turn” gray, according to Harvard Health. When your hair is produced by a hair follicle, the color is whatever it is. If your hair is brown, for example, it won’t take on a different color, but hair follicles generate less color as you age. As your hair regrows, the regrowth will most likely be gray in color. Gray hair can start as early as age 35.

So the question is, should you color your hair or go gray? Well, the choice is entirely yours. It’s a matter of personal preference, and we agree with Richards fans: the star would look absolutely amazing either way. But we love this star’s dye job, and what we love even more is the fact that she shared it with all her fans to see.
