Short Grey Hair styles

Classic Bob

This style can go two ways: a thoroughly modern take with a blunt bob or a classic blow-dried bob that’s traditional, yet chic. Whichever way you choose, make sure you up the shine -  we love Shimmering Silver Shampoo and Conditioner that take dull grey tones to shimmering and radiant silver tones.

Choppy Pixie Cut

This style can be a fun way to embrace grey while helping with that transition period by seamlessly blending your existing hair colour. It's a quick solution to the sometimes tricky growing out phase, which in reality can take between 6-12 months.

Side-parted and Side-swept

Keep hair styled, but with movement. Choose products that help to keep locks smooth and flyaway-free, but avoid heavy pomades and oils that can flatten grey hair. We love the Weightless Wonder Crème, that smooths hair without weighing it down. 

Pompadour

A pompadour gives an edginess to short grey styles, so you look glamorous. It works well with all hair types – from fine to thick. Just remember, as with all grey hair styles, you must adjust your make-up routine. Add a colour boost to cheeks and lips — any shade of pink works well a plethora of grey tones.

While this look takes some product and blow-drying, it can be impressive on women of any age and hair colour. If you want your grey to be a bit more polished, chat to your colourist about refining the streaks and adding a glossing treatment to boost lustre.

Textured Lob Cut

Often when your hair turns grey, the texture can change. This is where the ‘lob’ comes into its own, as it can embrace grey well. When working with your natural texture, ensure you get products that work with it. So if you require some extra volume, try a blow-dry spray or mousse. On the other hand, if it needs taming, invest in Frizz Ease Original Hair Serum, which helps to keeps locks tamed, smooth and hydrated and  provides hear protection, so it's perfect before blow-drying.

How to Keep Your Natural Grey Hair Healthy

The cuticles of grey hair can be slightly rougher and drier than hair with colour, so its's important to employ some smart hair tactics to keep salt and pepper locks looking silky smooth. Use the following steps as a guide to keeping your grey hair looking its best!

  • Get into a routine of brushing your hair every night to distribute natural hair oils from the scalp to the lengths. 
  • Enhance grey hair with a glossing treatment or hydrating mask every week.
  • Use a dedicated styling range for grey hair to stop it from looking brassy and yellow. Shimmering Silver Shampoo and Conditioner will work perfectly to neutralise brassy tones in grey strands.
  • Remember, dirt shows up faster on grey and white hair, so expect to shampoo and condition more often.
