HOW DO I MAKE MY GREY HAIR LOOK STYLISH?
Embrace your silver strands by following these helpful hints.
THE REGROWTH PHASE
Like laugh lines, grey hairs are a symbol of a life well lived, so going natural should be a positive move. While the greying process is simple, the acceptance process sometimes isn’t. The most challenging part of growing your grey out is the regrowth, which for darker hair can be especially noticeable.
To get through this awkward stage, consider using root cover-ups rather than your usual dye. These come in gels, powders, mascaras, and sprays, and are non-permanent options that won’t hinder new growth and will wash out easily.
LIGHTEN YOUR LOCKS
Sydney hairstylist Anthony Nader says playing around with highlights or lowlights can help with the transition. “Growing out your existing colour can be smooth sailing if you still have a few splashes of colour that match your existing shade sporadically from roots to ends, so the regrowth line isn’t too obvious,” he says.
Remember, this phase won’t happen overnight, so give yourself 12 months for your new natural to grow in.
