We want you to celebrate who you are wherever you are in your journey!

As seen in Redbook Magazine, CNN, and NY Daily News, NY-based writer Ty Alexander makes grey hair not only acceptable but fierce and fabulous.

But Who is Ty Alexander?

In a word, Ty Alexander is undeniable. From her signature strands of luscious grey hair to her notable career as a digital influencer and editor, she carries a presence that is difficult to miss. What makes her stand out among others in a sea of sameness in the digital space, is her ability to understand trends and keep her finger on the pulse of what audiences and readers crave.

Ty’s career highlights are diverse and impressive. She got her start as the style and beauty editor for HelloBeautiful.com and from there, began to establish herself as an authority on the many facets of beauty, fashion, and lifestyle-related content. To date, she has shared her expertise in noteworthy media outlets, such as Style.com, HuffingtonPost.com, Hype Hair Magazine, and XOJane.

GorgeousInGrey.com is Ty’s personal blog, which serves as a hub for fresh beauty and lifestyle content, and provides an outlet for her sassy and irresistible personality. With over 200,000 page views per month and a community of 90,000 followers across social media platforms to match, Ty’s influence and talent are again, undeniable.

Through the success of her blog, Ty has gained national attention with appearances on Dr. Oz and The Today Show and has worked as a social media consultant and content partner for major brands such as BET, Ouidad, Lane Bryant, and EDEN BodyWorks. Respected by her peers, Ty was a 2016 BlogHer Voices of the Year nominee, the 2013 Full Figured Fashion Week Blogger of the Year, and has been featured in Essence, Redbook, Ebony, CNN Living, NY Daily News, and Black Enterprise.

Seeking to expand her footprint beyond her blog, in 2016, Ty fulfilled a lifelong dream of becoming a published author, with the release of her first book, Things I Wish I Knew Before My Mom Died. Deeply personal and introspective, Ty documents how she coped with the loss of her mother to cancer. The book is hailed as a must-read for women in search of guidance on how to make sense of their own grieving process.

While the accolades are plenty at this stage in her career, Ty Alexander continually strives for greatness in all she does. From her roles as author, influencer, to strategist, she is driven by her desire to be the very best version of herself she can be and hopes to inspire women all over the world to do the same.

    I came across your pics on Fashion Bomb Daily and I am in LOVE with your personality. I love the fact that regardless of your shape, color, hair type you are who and you are beautiful. I wish you the best in all you do and glad you are promoting to be WHO YOU ARE!!!

    Where do you get your blazers? I am very heavy chested and it is HARD finding blazers.

    Hi Gorgeous

    I am sooooo pleased to come across your site. Unfortunately, (or luckily) I hardly ever wear make up but I do dabble, so its nice to see what Black women are buying and trying.

    What bought me to you site was the grey hair. Yep, I had a beautiful black afro and now voila it is grey, grey, grey and I hate it. Please don’t tell me to love it cos I can’t. It is, for me the one thing that makes me feel OLD.

    Anyway I am living with it, mind you its not the only thing that’s gone grey!!!! I do really like your site and am wondering if you have any hints or tips for me living in Australia, New South Wales, Sydney to be precise.

    The country isn’t quite geared up for Black women say like USA or the UK where I am from originally but there are many African stores and women making a good living from hairdressing.

    So if you are ever over there are some places that I would highly recommend here in Sydney and in Perth. There’s heaps more for me to discover and I’ll let you know along the way.

    Love reading your site and I am busily catching up on your past blogs.

    Take good care,

    I stumbled upon this blog seeking some answers about primer and color correction. I knew I hit the mothership as soon as I saw the quality of the post. I have to run out the door after spending some time on here- just know you’ve been added to my feedly and I can’t wait to both read and spread the good news. This is how I get when I score a great find. J’adore.

    Hi Ty,
    Wow so great to meet someone like me! I started greying when I was 18 and by the age of 35 was completely grey. I heard all the re marks also, your to young to be grey, someone even argued with me saying that I dyed my hair, which to me was really dumb. I am now a proud 54 and always will embrace and love my natural never dyed grey sisterlocks. So glad I found you site(Essence magazine)
