This morning I was preparing for work and I found that a couple of white hairs in my beard are now much more prominent than they once were. I'm on my way to a distinguished salt-and-pepper beard.

So, what is the correct protocol for this? Do I pluck or trim the beard hairs until they become dominant? Or do I go with it.

I think I'll just go with it.

Definately go with it. I started turning grey around the age of 25. (an extremely vain co-worker of mine at the time actually insisted that I pluck it out, I didn't) You'll never keep up. Besides men look more distinguished when they go grey. Right?

Actually, I do believe so.

If the beard really comes in grey, look for me to go for that old sea captain look.

Well, don't feel bad, I've been getting them for a while. my side burns and the sides of my head are pretty salt and pepper. But the other day, I noticed to my dismay that I had a grey chest hair! So don't feel bad.

Well, I am at the other end of the salt-and-pepper scale. I have a few black hairs among the grey in my mo!
