I'm sorry, but we also say "I have a grey hair." There's nothing at all to comment on in saying "butter lightly streaked with grey" as far as I'm concerned.But admittedly it might have been more accurate to say there's no such thing as "a" grey hair!
Thanks, so it's done deliberately cut in a way to look uneven or careless, am I right?I wouldn't take it to mean "badly cut", no. In fact, just the opposite: a haircut so skillfully done in deliberately wide and uneven sections so that it would fall back into place after any kind of disarray, whether by wind or fingers.
I agree. I'm not sure what the point is in being so technical as to say there's no such things as grey, because it's really just a blend of black and white, so it's an optical illusion. The word grey is not an illusion, however; it came out of this and other languages to describe precisely what we see long before the theories of light were observed and proposed.I'm sorry, but we also say "I have a grey hair."

(Not really applicable, but for horse breeders there's no such thing as a white horse. What color was George Washington's white horse? Grey.)
So you think that people who were originally blonde just go platinum and never worry about dying their hair?I think lingobingo's point is well taken. A mixture of dark and white hairs gives the appearance of grey, but a mixture of blond and white hairs would just give the appearance of a lighter shade of blond.
