You’ve seen her before. My beautiful cousin, Jo, whom you’ve no doubt read about in this post HERE, where I detail her first New York Fashion Week appearance at the tender age of 64.
A lot has changed for her since her first runway walk 2 years ago. Today, she is a working model (even has an agent), proving that age means nothing in the face of walking your purpose. Essence Magazine agrees.
In next month’s Essence Jo, along with three other gray-haired beauties will be honored in a feature celebrating queens who proudly rock their platinum crowns. Take a look at this preview:
Jo Johnson, 66. Follow her HERE
Tonja, age 44. Follow her HERE
Keisha B, Age 46. Follow her HERE
Lastly we have Cerissa, Age 43.
Traditionally, going gray has been something against which most of us have railed. We prolong the semblance of youth, even when it becomes absurd to do so. And to what end? Frankly, I think Essence and these ladies have the right idea. Gray hair is beautiful, and it’s high time we recognize its glory.
Hey, Boo! My name is Lisa and you’ve stumbled upon my own little corner of the world. I’m a 30 something-year-old writer/mother/wife who happens to love lipstick, high heels, blackness, and the truth. You’ll find a mix of everything on this site, so I won’t bore you by trying to define this space. I hope you stay awhile!
