Chrissy Teigen has never shied away from sharing, whether it's her postpartum depression, cellulite or, most recently, silver streaks in her hair. For most women, whether premature or not, grey hair can come as bit of a shocker — bringing with it an odd unspoken social pressure to cosmetically turn back time. Plus, when was the last time you heard a celebrity under 60 totally embrace that unexpected silver?
That’s why it’s so refreshing to see the supermodel/cookbook author/ Twitter queen candidly share that she’s sprouting some grey hairs of her own. Her tweet of enthusiastic — if not a little irreverent — acceptance quickly went viral this week.
I have a skunk like streak of grey hair and I’m actually very into it. My cruella dreams are coming true!— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) January 22, 2018
Then, something extremely cool happened: In a show of solidarity, dozens of women responded with selfies proudly showing off their own silver streaks. Some even gave the expectant mama a little been-there-didn’t-dye-that beauty advice.

I’ve had a natural white streak in my hair since I was 19. 13 years later I still love it pic.twitter.com/fv5yxS3Gf3— Felicia Ingram (@f_plato) January 22, 2018
Right! So adorable! Mother Nature is truly amazing. That baby was born with a gray patch in the same exact place as her Mummy! ❤️ pic.twitter.com/JANGit122f— Y•S•A•N•N•E (@YsanneBueno) January 22, 2018
