Thinking of Gray Hair Styles?
The gray hair styles question has come up often enough in my classes Finding the Right Hairstyle for You to know that it is on a lot your minds. Just picture yourself down the road a few more years or decades whatever the case may be. You’ve been coloring whites since you can’t remember, and now you are tired of the hassle and expense of touching up grey roots every 4 to 6 weeks. How do you go about going “au naturel” with a beautiful hair style?
Most of you know you shouldn’t just let your grays grow out – way to scary! If you see someone using this strategy, please help them out with what you learn here. (The easiest solution you can give them is to go on a mission to find a hair colorist.) Some women have been left without answers to this question and therefore think they have no alternative but to look hideous in the process, or they just keep coloring their hair when they really don’t want to.
So, first of all if your hairdresser “hems and haws” think twice, and engage a hair colorist. You want a hair colorist who is confident in the strategy they are going to use. If your hairdresser seems shaky, there is a good reason. They are not sure what to do with coloring grey hair! If a hair dresser takes you on with this attitude, they are surely getting experience at your expense. Follow your instincts carefully on this one. If it just does not feel right, be assertive.
These are my gray hair styles suggestions:
- If your hair has been permanently colored or bleached, a short haircut will be the quickest. Then you can use a semi-permanent hair color or hair color rinse in your natural shade to blend till your hair grows out. You can have a hair colorist blend your new growth with “lowlights”. Lowlighting is just the opposite of high lighting. Depositing streaks of hair color using a semi-permanent hair color to blend grey hair until the old hair color has been cut out. Your natural hair color will start to come in naturally but without a line of demarcation.
- The darker your hair color is, the trickier the process becomes. The process of lowlighting hair may take a bit longer. This is why going with a short haircut would be a good idea. It will make the process much smoother and quicker.
