Jessica Biel's gray roots at the Golden Globes seemed like another punctuation mark to the underlying message involved. The point is that you do it because you like it, and not because you feel like you have to or else you will be judged. Especially since other women watching at home can see her embrace her silver hair with confidence, and might question themselves why they feel embarrassed showing that they age. That's not to say coloring your hair is a sign of insecurity or is anti-feminist. After the age of 40, men get 80 percent of the leading roles , while women only get 20 percent. With this momentum of women standing up and saying "time's up" to the sexist framework they have to navigate their lives and careers through, one actress's hair choice stood out in particular because of the night's frank, anti-sexist theme.

Threading through her swept back fringe and across the top of her head, Biel's gray hair unapologetically glinted white in pictures.

Jessica Biel's Gray Roots At The 2018 Golden Globes Were Unapologetic & Elegant
Sometimes it takes seeing another confident woman embrace what you feel insecure or stressed about, in order to give you permission to accept it yourself. Meryl Streep herself said she saw an instant shift with what kinds of roles she was offered after turning 40, where all of them were witches. With this momentum of women standing up and saying "time's up" to the sexist framework they have to navigate their lives and careers through, one actress's hair choice stood out in particular because of the night's frank, anti-sexist theme. Not only do men get 60 to 70 percent of the leading roles in Hollywood, that statistic only gets worse when a woman's age is factored in. And we have Biel to thank for highlighting that on the red carpet. Even more so, knowing how her industry works when it comes to youth, it was a pretty brave and aggressive move. But seeing how stars go through haircuts, dye jobs, spa appointments, and makeup chairs to get ready for the big night, it's pretty cool to assume she asked for her roots not to be messed with.
