Although today's word sounds like it's describing a brothel, it means something far different (and much more benign!).
The word hoary simply means gray or white with age.
My paternal grandpa wears a blue-black toupee rivaling Wayne Newton's hair, while my maternal grandpa sports a standard hoary coiffure.

OK, so it's not a real word...but it should be!
Just watch Will Ferrell impersonating James Lipton on Saturday Night Live call Charles Nelson Reilly (impersonated by Alec Baldwin) scrumtrulescent.
P.S. Part of this video is offensive. It's SNL, after all...
