Styles for Grey Hair: The Fine Points
Grey hair may have a blonde touch, a silvery shimmer or may still be dark grey. There are perfect styles for every shade of grey hair.
Grey with a touch of gold or blonde: Soft hairstyles are particularly appealing for grey hair with warm golden or blonde undertones (see Carmen Dell‘Orefice’s photo in our gallery). Casual styles like the loosely brushed back bob also work well for this hair colour.
Silvery or shimmering grey: This cool grey hair colour works particularly well with plain precisely cut hairstyles like sleek chignons or bobs. The clear lines of geo haircuts seem to have been invented for uniformly grey hair on the frosty side.
Dark Grey: Exacting short hairstyles and styles with well-defined lines (e.g. geo-style haircuts) enhance the beauty of dark grey hair.
Styling Tips for Women with Grey Hair
Styling products make it easy to create curls or keep hair straight or sleek. Curling mouse makes curls springier and straightening spray or styling oils keep hair straight and silky for several days. Volumising powder adds fullness and manageability. While extra-gloss hairspray or wax intensifies the lustre of hair, styling paste allows the creation of a matted finish.
