‘Grey is the new blonde’

by on September 19, 2011

This is a discussion on the BBC Radio 4 Today programme about the fashion trend for grey hair.  

The interview with Caryn Franklin and Sarah Vine explores changing attitudes towards ageing amongst women, growing acceptability of what the normal ageing process looks like and the use of older models on the catwalk.

It also includes Caryn Franklin’s experience in her fomer role as BBC Clothes Show presenter. When her hair started to turn grey in her 30s she describes how she was told by colleagues that the BBC planned to ‘wind her down’  as they thought ‘she looked old’.
