Post photos of yourself in your gray-haired glory and win prizes—with the prizes being even better if you’re a NextTribe member.
2020 is already a year to remember. Mostly for very stressful reasons, that all of us know too well, and for the record number of times the word “unprecedented” has been used.
But here’s another reason: It is, we believe, the year that scores of women our age have said, “Fuck it!” (or some nicer words with the same sentiment) and learned to embrace their gray hair. For many of us, there hasn’t been any other choice. What with the world zipped up from March into June in most places (and maybe closing up again in some states).
Many of us have suffered separation anxiety from our hair salons. At least initially. But as time wore on and we had no place to go anyhow other than ZOOM sessions, we learned to sit still with our silver strands and accept them. Maybe even like them. Maybe so much that we’ve decided to keep them.
If that’s you—or if you’ve long been a proud gray head—we invite you to take part in our Hooray for Gray Giveaway.
This is our second gray giveaway. The last one was fabulous, but we think this year will be even better, since we all could use the distraction and a reward for making it so many weeks without a colorist.
How to Win
Post photos of your pearly locks, or your Susan Sontag streak, or your partial growing-out look on Facebook or Instagram with the hashtags: #HoorayforGray and #NextTribe.
We’ll pick the most striking head of hair as the winner, and award the owner a $100 gift certificate to Sephora. If the owner happens to be a NextTribe member, she’ll get a $200 gift certificate. Because we take extra good care of our members. You do not have to be a NextTribe member to enter or to be eligible for first prize.
5 Runners Up
Five silver foxes will be chosen as runners up, each of whom will receive a NextTribe insulated coffee mug. If the runners up are already NextTribe members, they’ll get the coffee mug and a BOLD tank top. You do not have to be a NextTribe member to enter or to be eligible for runner up.
All other entrants, as long as they are NextTribe members, will have their photos published on the website. See the gallery of entrants from our last event here (scroll down for the Hooray for Gray photos).
Post your photos by midnight on Saturday, July 11th and you’ll be eligible to win.
