Grey hair is a rite of passage that should be celebrated. So along with laughter lines and facial folds that mean we’re getting older and wiser, here are all the tips, tricks, products and styles that show off the salt and pepper hair with shimmering flair. It’s time to embrace the grey!
 
SHORT GREY HAIRSTYLES
 
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 are moisturising and full of antioxidants to keep locks shiny and swingy. But avoid heavy pomades and oils that can flatten grey hair.


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.


MEDIUM GREY HAIRSTYLES

Layers can add movement and volume if hair is feeling a little thin. It can also add a youthfulness to your style. Luxurious Volume Forever Full Hairspray can also help to hold fine, delicate strands.


Straightened Fringe Cut

Keep that fringe in check with Frizz Ease Moisture Barrier Flexible Hold Hairspray, to add lasting hold for unruly fringes and bangs.


The ‘Fonda’ Cut

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 Serum, which helps to keeps locks tamed, smooth and hydrated and provides heat protection, so it's perfect before blow-drying.


LONG GREY HAIRSTYLES

Flyaways can appear more noticeable on grey hair, so keep ends slick and smooth by blow-drying or using flat irons and with a pump of Frizz Ease Polishing Serum to instantly eliminate frizziness.


Salt and Pepper Mermaid Waves

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 healthy.
  • Get into a routine of brushing your hair every night to distribute natural hair oils from the scalp to the lengths. Hair will often get softer and silkier in a few weeks.
  • 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.
  • Rememember, dirt shows up fasteron grey and white hair, so expect to shampoo and condition more often.
