Grey Hair Styles That Compliment Your Color

There is a wider variety of beautiful haircuts for gray hair than ever before. Soft waves, sleek chignons, and short haircuts look particularly appealing with gray hair. 

Gray hair symbolizes much more than just the years passing by and with the perfect gray hairstyle, it can really look beautiful. Celebrity women have started to redefine the silver look.

Hairstyles for Gray Hair: The Fine Points


Gray hair can have a blonde touch, a silvery shimmer or may still be dark gray. There are suitable gray hairstyles for every shade.  


Gray with a touch of gold or blonde: Soft hairstyles are particularly appealing for gray hair with warm golden or blonde undertones. Styles for short gray hair like the loosely brushed back bob also work well for this hair color.


Silvery or bluish shimmering gray: This cool gray hair color works particularly well with gray hairstyles that are plain and precisely cut like sleek chignons or bobs. The clear lines of geo haircuts seem to have been invented for uniformly gray hair with a frosty tint.


Dark gray: Sharp and short gray hairstyles and styles with well-defined lines (e.g. geo-style haircuts) enhance the beauty of dark gray hair.


Tips for Women with Gray Hairstyles

Styling products make it easy to create curls or keep hair straight or sleek. Curling mousse makes curls springier and straightening spray keeps hair straight and silky for several days. Volumizing powder adds fullness and manageability. While extra-gloss hairspray or wax intensifies the luster of hair, styling paste allows the creation of a matted finish.
