The majority of us spend a lot of time (and money) to get rid of gray with high-powered weapons such as the get-it-golden double process and make-it-brunette balayage. But the winds of change are coloring the most stylish of women's tresses silver. The trendlet Yes, it's true. Women are paying stylists top dollar to have their inverted, shoulder-length bobs and short spikey-dos colored a perfect gray to silver ombre. (Much like bleach blondes, the first step is to strip the pigment, and then stylists apply a permanent gray dye. You can add a semipermanent rinse for a pastel effect.)

Penn women's basketball coach Mike McLaughlin originally didn't think his Quakers had a shot at the player he now describes as a game-changer for his defending Ivy League champions. Life works that way sometimes. It's the surprises that can change everything. Sydney Stipanovich, now a sophomore at Penn, was a big-time high school center in St. Louis. Missouri offered her a scholarship early. Her father had gone to Missouri, and her older brother. Her sister now goes there. Her uncle Steve was a star player there before he became the second pick of the 1983 NBA draft.
