Six (6) things to do with your grey hair

Hello everyone!
Grey hair is a natural part of getting older for many of us. I noticed my first grey hair at just 21 years old! For the past 17 years, dying my hair has been a consistent component of my grooming routine. Most people will have at least a few grey hairs by the time they reach 40, and many more than that as the years rack up. Some people embrace their grey hairs, while others may want to change them.

Whatever you think of your grey hair, below are some great things you can do with it right now:

1. Go bold with a trendy cut
If you are someone who would be more than happy to embrace your grey hair, but you don’t think it quite suits you as things stand, then one thing you can do is to embrace it as fully as possible with a bold new haircut. A stylish bob, pixie cut, or even long layers can add a modern, trendy touch to your grey hair, making it a style statement in itself. It’s all about wearing your grey with pride and a dash of panache. You’ll be amazed at how much a modern cut can transform your grey hair into something special!

2. Try demi-permanent hair dye
If you’re not quite ready to commit to your grey, consider using a demi-permanent hair dye. If you read, ‘Demi-Permanent Hair Color: What It Is And Which To Try,’ you will see that, unlike permanent dyes, demi-permanent dye doesn’t have ammonia, so it gently enhances or darkens your natural colour while blending in grey. It's a great solution for anyone wanting a subtle hair colour change with minimal damage. Ideal for those who don't want to reveal their grey hair just yet!

3. Highlights or lowlights
Highlights or lowlights are perfect for hair that is starting to go grey because they can add more depth and dimension to your style, which will make it much more difficult for those greys to stand out, and ensure that your hair looks healthy, lush, and beautifully multi-tonal at all times. It’s a fantastic way to play with shades while retaining some of your natural grey hair. Just make sure that you opt for shades that complement your skin tone for the most flattering results. If you are unsure which colours will work best for you, your hairdresser can assist you.

4. Go completely silver
If you are starting to get a lot of grey in your hair and don’t exactly mind it, but you want it to be more striking, then you always have the option of going completely silver! Book an appointment with your stylist to get all-over silver hair without any select areas where your grey has decided to show through. More than that, they will turn sull grey hair into hair that veritably sparkles. This is a look that is sure to turn heads and can work with women of any age. Complete silver is sleek, chic, and elegant, and it will turn heads for all the right reasons!

5. Accessorise
As women age, they tend to stop wearing hair accessories, but they can enhance grey hair and are not just for the young. For example, a pearl-embellished hair clip or a velvet headband can add a touch of glamour to your grey locks, making you ready for any occasion, or a silver barrette can really bring out the unique colour of your locks. Try different things to see what suits you best.

6. Embrace it
These days, grey hair is something to be celebrated by many women. Whether you have a few strands, a whole block, or a whole head of grey hair, there is absolutely nothing wrong with simply leaving it as is, styling it as you normally would, and rocking it like you’re on the catwalk. It will tell everyone how much confidence you have, and you know, ageing gracefully is about as classy as it gets!

As you can see, there is really no need to worry when you find your first grey hair because there are many things you can do to wear it well, whether you want to cover it up or show it off to the world. Grey hair is not a bad thing!
