Don’t Hide Those Gray’s, Style Them!
This year, if you want to turn some heads then it’s about time you knew the newest beauty advice and most attention grabbing trend–gray hair!
You might not believe it, but it’s being seen gracing the streets of some of the country’s biggest cities and is actually starting to be requested. Gray, white, silver, pewter and every single color in between, its’ all in and we love every single minute of it.
This once dreaded hair color has become the newest hair option and beauty tip ever since the introduction of more silver friendly hair products, such as color enhancing shampoos and conditioners designed especially for gray hair. It’s because of these that we’re seeing more and more women heading to the salon to embrace the hair color that’s plaguing them, and gaining a completely new look that’s not only on trend, but gives any woman of that age an instant air of sophistication and grace, providing it’s styled correctly of course!
Most women who visit salons nationwide have said that they have chosen gray hair because they really love the look or they’re sick of battling with their roots, but whatever the reason, it seems to have many ladies hooked on the look, as we’re seeing how stunning, dramatic and elegant gray hair really can look.
So if this sounds like something you want to embrace, then there are a few things that you can do. The first step, however, has to be to ask for a consultation with a colorist at your local hair salon. This can help you plan how to successfully transition to gray hair as graceful as possible. For example, if you’ve been dying your hair for quite some time, one of your options may be to gradually decrease the processing time for your regular formula to set, this can allow the gray to become more prominent gradually, without it looking forced or too sudden.
You could also add lowlights for subtle definition, while also adding a gloss to really give your hair some shine. Make sure you book regular appointments with your colorist in order to make sure that your hair looks gorgeous and as natural as possible every step of the way. The problem with gray hair is a lot of women see it as an excuse to give up on their hair completely; the result can often be dull and wiry gray hair that no woman wants. The truth is that gray hair needs a little extra care if you want to achieve silver haired perfection, just like your favorite silver celebs, such as Meryl Streep and Judy Dench.
In order to achieve this celebrity glamour, you need to ensure that you are keeping your silver mane as healthy as can be. Gray hair that isn’t looked after often goes dry, wiry and brittle and this is often the main reason that women do not immediately embrace their silvery locks, but there is a solution and put into practice it can give you soft and manageable hair that would rival every other color under the sun!
The trick to it is to use specially formulated shampoos and conditioners that can clarify your hair. These types of shampoos and conditioners contain blue tints, but don’t be alarmed, this kind of treatment can brighten your silver hair and help you avoid yellowy gray tones.
- Most salons beauty advice is that when you first try these types of special shampoo, it would be a good idea to mix equal parts of shampoo with a regular intensive moisturizing shampoo in order to experiment and become familiar with the new product.
- It might also be a good idea to have regular deep conditioning treatments at your salon; this can give your hair the shine and softness you never thought you could achieve with gray hair.
- And finally, a beauty secret is to keep your gray hair styled perfectly in a cut that compliments your new hair color as well as your face; gray hair often reflects light, so will become a focal point to your appearance so make sure that first notice is an impression well made!
