In March 2023, the 69-year-old short-term Dancing With the Stars star shared a photo to Instagram to show off her fully grown gray roots after a missed visit to the salon. In the picture, Brinkley was sitting on the beach on a gray day and she noticed that the color of the waves matched her hair.

In the caption, the former supermodel revealed she was debating whether or not to keep the look. “My son thinks it looks cool, but I think I might want to wait until it’s more like the silvery whitecaps than the gray wave itself! The verdict is pending!” she wrote.

The reaction of the fans was not long in coming. Some thought Brinkley’s son, Jack Brinkley Cook, was off with someone to tell her “Stay blonde to the end”.

But others told Brinkley to try.

“This is ‘Silver Hair’ Christy. There is NO gray hair. It sparkles on you. …It’s very empowering and liberating. It suits you uptown girl.” wrote a fan.

“The gray at the roots is beautiful and the various strands are already showing definition! Gray with your beautiful face would be stunning!” another wrote.

“Go natural to encourage more women to embrace the beauty of aging gracefully. There is nothing wrong with silver/grey/white hair. It’s all about how you own the beauty of it.” A fan intervened.

“I imagine when you’re known for your beautiful blonde hair, it’s a much bigger decision.” another wrote. “If you keep it, keep that classic Christie look as you go gray it would be inspirational to any woman who doesn’t want to conform to societal standards of how a woman should age.” Either way, you’ll still be a beautiful person. The package doesn’t matter.”
