21. Dark Roots + Silver Grey Hair

Sometimes it really could be as simple as just fading the color down to the lightest it will go. Think about how versatile this look is… It doesn’t matter when your roots grow out and you won’t need to constantly re-bleach, re-lighten, and then re-grey them in order to keep the look fresh. Add some curls to mask any sins and you have one of the easiest ways to wear your grey hair. Roots no longer matter!

    I love the look! A natural 7 myself, it still took several months and trips to my stylist to even get close.

    Sorry, I just have to say; grey/ silver/ white hair is a HUGE commitment! By no means is it”low maintenance”!The fact this article claimed getting white hair is “easy” or that ianyt called any of these colors “easy” to maintain (besides like, naturally dark hair with a grey ombré) just tells you right there…there IS no expected level of professionalism, care, pride, or knowledge. Pictures are pretty, through! Stupid article- I’m really sorry!!

    I guess I am a lucky (blessed) one; I have naturally white/ platinum/grey hair. It’s amusing that wherever I go, invariably I am told how “beautiful” my hair is. I am not a proud person but the comments are uplifting.

    My hair is also naturally white/Platinum grey hair. I get compliments many times. Im over 70 now and it first the platinum white hair came in around 40 near the temples and took about 10 years to all over. It really is a very pretty silver white.

    I am 65 and have been dying my brown hair since my 20’s. I finally decided I wanted to know what my hair color is so I started just coloring the top of my hair line and letting the hair on the middle to bottom come in naturally. I loved how pure white is was so I went to my colorist and had her match the top brown (colored) hair to my natural color. I might look older than I did with brown hair but I get compliments from 90% of those who knew me before. I am fine with looking closer to my age and feel authentic and honest.

    Hello. I am 73 but look 10 years younger. I have colored my hair since I was a student.. I have thick straight hair. I color my hair Clairol Gentle care formula. Mocha Medium Brown. My hair had a reddish undertone with natural high lites . I have to touch up roots every 2 weeks and cut every 6 weeks. It grows like weed. I wear it in a bob. Now with lock down/corona virus. Its time. I haven’t colored my hair for 6 weeks. Can’t look myself in the mirror. I have thought of have a very short cut and having it grey. The hair is now paper white. But it must have a modern look. I still work as an estate agent. Jackmaetincolorist
