Yes, although gray hair can work if it is growing out beautifully, but this usually does not happen. That being said, my cousin, who is my age, has nearly all white hair. It's a beautiful shade and she looks so pretty with it--even better than when she was dying her hair back to it's original shade of light brown. Strange, but true. I've tried going gray, but it just looks all wrong. It doesn't grow out evenly. So, the short answer is that--it depends upon the hair more than the woman, at least, in my case.
