For the longest time, the media (and our mothers) told us to cover up the salt that was adding to our pepper. But now, gray is trendy--especially when cut well. Luckily, a number of notable women rock the shade like nobody’s business. So for a little inspiration, here are five of the most flattering cuts for all you silver foxes.

An imperfect pixie like Jamie Lee Curtis

Not only is this cut easy to style, it’s also super flattering if you’ve got a slightly rectangular face with fine features and a long neck like Curtis does.

A tousled lob like Diane Keaton

Lobs are almost always universally flattering--and really popular right now. Layers add body, and the fact that it doesn’t look too "done" makes it one of your more youthful options.

Slightly unkempt and shoulder length like Blythe Danner

One of people’s main gripes with gray hair is that it’s uniquely textured (read: more susceptible to frizz). Instead of fighting it, embrace it like Blythe Danner, whose loose curls are a bit unruly in the best way.

Face-framing layers like Emmylou Harris

Unlike Danner’s anything-goes style, Harris’s cut is a little more polished. This sleek shoulder-length 'do with full bangs is great for women who want to embrace their natural color while masking its texture. Just know, though: It definitely requires more styling work than any other cut on this list.

A close crop like Alice Walker

Just like the color gray, natural black hair is also having a well-deserved moment. Walker’s super-short cut requires very little upkeep, and though it takes some getting used to--especially if, like Walker, you once had longer hair--it can be quite refreshing. (Plus, you really get to show off your earring game.)
