They instantly bring sophistication and elegance to a look, help us carry our essentials in élan and add polish to an ordinary ensemble.

The Beauty of Salt and Pepper Hair Colour

Nobody ever forgets their first… well to be more specific here, their first silvery strands peeking out during the most awkward of occasions; maybe on an anniversary date with that special someone or on a formal interview with future colleagues, where they are supposed to look able, fit and technically young with a head full of jet-black hair.
