Nixon, 55, sported a chic grey pixie cut in her update of her iconic once-redheaded character, high-powered lawyer Miranda Hobbs.

And lead actress Parker, 56, wore her hair in highlighted ombre sections that allowed for strands of her gray roots to show through the blonde and brown. 

SJP, who plays central character Carrie Bradshaw, also posted a selfie from the And Just Like That… hair and makeup trailer on the morning of filming, which put a  particular spotlight on her roots.

The pair of stars were photographed along with costar Kristin Davis in the first promotional shots for the new series on Friday, each rocking a fabulous monotone look as they strutted down the sidewalk in inimitable SATC style.

Running from 1998 to 2004, Sex And The City was an immensely popular series focusing on the love and sex lives of four 30-something New York City women.

The show went on to spawn two big-budget feature films and has been in syndication on various platforms for the last 15 years.

The new series promises to provide an update on three of the characters from that posse, now that they are in their mid-50s and navigating their relationships, families and careers.

Absent from the proceedings, sadly, is Kim Cattrall, the actress who played promiscuous PR agent Samantha Jones. 

Cattrall, 64, made it clear that she had no intention of coming back to any new iteration of the franchise, after a highly publicized and long-standing feud between herself and Sarah Jessica.

Nonetheless, And Just Like That… promises to delight fans everywhere who are craving more time with this particular group of girlfriends. 

And it is a welcome development to see that the show will not try to hide the fact that these women have aged, and will in fact show off how they remain vibrant, beautiful and sexy.

After all, gray is great, as seen across the pond this month at the Cannes Film Festival, where timeless beauty Andie McDowell modeled her own silvery mane for photographers on the Croisette.
