Is this American English? I'd just say "a little > old grey-haired lady" or something similar. It's not a frequent usage, but the expression "little blue-haired old lady" is floating around out there. I'm still figuring out the use of "grey" though. There's white hair and the mixed "salt & pepper" hair that appears grey from a distance but as someone who turned "grey" very young I can say that I've never really had a grey hair, just white ones.
