Perhaps you’re ageing gracefully (or ungracefully). Perhaps the genetics Gods have blessed you with a full head of the grey stuff in your 20s. Whichever distinguished category you fall into, we just want you to know that the grey hair shalt not be shunned.Sure, the appearance of greying can indicate that you’re moving on in life, but more importantly it’s a symbol of one’s wiseness and tenacity in this big bad world; it shows that you’ve been around to weather the worst and you’re now at the top of your game. Your next step? Owning it. Here is 50 ways to rock grey hair styles.Things You Need To KnowContrary to general belief, silver foxes can still attain that edgy dapper look, given they treat their grey matter with respect.Hair Styling As grey hair becomes more prominent on a man’s head, the appearance of thinning will also follow suit. This is why it’s essential you pick the right hairstyle that will accentuate the grey rather than highlight parts of your scalp (sorry cornrows). The gallery should help you with this part, but before we even get there, consider the importance of the varying tones and many shades of grey.If you’re predominantly pale skinned, use a bit of grey coverage product such as gentle foam colours. This will help break up the stark ‘white-on-white’ look. Those with a darker skin complexion should limit the grey coverage colour treatments as you’re trying to give the grey a more healthy transitional tone as opposed to looking like Geoffrey Edelsten.Maintenance Secondly, be sure to use a decent shampoo and conditioner. Choosing the cheaper alternatives will often dry out your hair after every wash and deprive it of the good stuff to keep it looking natural. Regular appointments with your hairstylist is also a must for silver foxes. Ever seen Tom Hanks in Cast Away? Ain’t nobody got time for that. Keep it styled and the cool grey will repay.Embrace Nothing shines brighter than the grey except for confidence. So embrace the inner-silver fox and wear the types of clothes that will give you a lasting sense of style. Going in for the dapper look is your best bet here and leaving your drop-crotch pants behind is probably the wiser option.Cover ItIf non of the above are you thing then considering covering it. There’s many products out there that you can use at home which will bring your original hair colour back. The products have come a long way and are completely natural looking.
There are too many, depending on your hair texture and preferable length. Generally speaking, grey hairstyles look dignified. They frame the face stately and draw attention rather to your facial features than any fancy styling tricks. You may have bangs with grey hairstyles, but they are either light and well-trimmed or styled to one side.
I actually put a temporary Grey/Silver rinse in my hair yesterday so I’m in the ‘I would’ camp.Grey is a beautiful colour just like any other hair colour, it’s a shame that people always have to divide every characteristic, making some seem desirable and others less so or even abnormal/disadvantageous. I personally don’t mind Yellow, it’s my favourite in the Blonde spectrum but I’ve always had it Gold, sometimes mixed with Copper though nowadays I’m more Platinum. Or for those who like to be derisive towards blondes and those who apparently ‘can’t colour/bleach properly – Orange, Yellow and White. Well I’ve added Grey/Silver to my spectrum now and I’m quite happy with it.Yay for Grey and at any age since I’m youngish.Great post and very informative!
Many women are shy of their first gray hairs and try to cover them up with permanent dyes. While these greys are not numerous, and you are still young that really makes sense. And when you are turning grayer, you can either consider going blondish or sport your silver locks with pride and style. After viewing the following grey hairstyles, you may completely change your opinion about grey locks. When else in your life could you have that stunning silver hue that looked absolutely natural and flattering on you?
As grey hair becomes more prominent on a man’s head, the appearance of thinning will also follow suit. This is why it’s essential you pick the right hairstyle that will accentuate the grey rather than highlight parts of your scalp (sorry cornrows). The gallery should help you with this part, but before we even get there, consider the importance of the varying tones and many shades of grey.
Whether your hair is curly or straight, if you’re not quite ready to completely make the jump into grey hair, then consider a very light blonde with grey undertones. If you feel it’s too blonde, you can always go grayer, as opposed to the full on grey, which is much more difficult and expensive to accomplish.
This is a perfect option of more traditional short grey hairstyles. Notice that feathery styling? It creates texture and volume in thinner, aging hair. To try it, blow dry your hair with a round brush, then use a lightweight texturizing cream to add separation.
Incorporating a bright color refreshes one of the most popular hairstyles for grey hair. With hair being naturally light, colorful streaks are an easy addition that requires no bleaching whatsoever. A soft, pastel shade is recommended to blend in with the hair’s light natural tone.
For grey hairstyles that are easy to manage, go for a short cut that works well with your hair’s natural texture. This haircut is perfect for straight hair because the pretty tapered silhouette is created when the hair lies flat. Of course, this look won’t require daily styling but it will require regular trims.
Grey hairstyles vary from person to person, but this straight, blunt cut is ideal for a variety of age ranges and facial shapes. Be sure to add varying tones of silver and white into the mix to keep things interesting.
Darker grey colors are available, though it’s mostly chosen by older generations, are still beautiful looking and can look fabulous on younger women. These dark hairstyles are fun and can add a little variety to your usual choices in hair color.
I loved your lens and all the lovely pictures in it. 🙂 I’m 28, but I don’t dread my hair turning grey one day. I’ve always found grey hair beautiful, and look forward to bringing the best out of mine when the time comes.

The likes of Kylie Jenner, Zosia Mamet, Rihanna and Kate Moss have all trialled the grey hair trend, while the likes of Jean-Paul Gaultier, Gareth Pugh and Chanel have all used grey-haired models in their catwalk shows. If this isn’t enough to convince you to hit the bottle (or let your natural silver strands show through), take a look through our celebrity gallery for inspiration.
Kelly Osbourne has experimented with lilac and grey hair hues before, but this latest colour is a rich and bold grey-purple. While it’s split the office on opinion, at least we all sat up and took notice.
Always first to stamp her mark on any trend, Kate Moss first worked this grey-haired look back in 2010. Cue a thousand papers talking of Moss going grey, a dozen magazines talking about a dry-shampoo malfunction, and a room full of GLAMOUR.com staffers trying to achieve the look. We love Kate.
Again going with a grey-toned blonde, this short grey hair style is perfect for a working woman or anyone who wants to feel confident and regal. For those who are dreaming of retirement but aren’t quite there yet, this is a wonderful “go to the office” style.
You don’t need to be a baby boomer to rock grey hair – in fact; it’s a very popular look with younger generations right now. If you’re nervous to go dramatically grey, try a more natural light blonde. If you find you like it, you can continue to lighten your hair into the most subtle of silver hues until you find something you’re confident with.
