You will never see grey hair models in magazines that’s because the companies that advertise in these publications don’t want you to.

I am often asked “can I grow out my hair colour and go grey?”

Yes you can only if you’re 100% white (grey). You see white hair mixed with your natural colour looks ageing but a full head of grey can look very chic. Because grey hair has no pigment and keratin it will frizz and look dry. You need a good shaped haircut (consider a short hair style when going grey), good products and effort to keep it looking styled or it will never work.

 

Meryl Streep Grey Hair

 

Grey hair needs toning otherwise it will start to stain from pollution, smoke, chlorine, etc.  A deep violet pigmented shampoo and conditioner will neutralise these unwanted tones or a toner from your hairdresser can do the trick instantly.

My final advice to look fabulously grey is styling. If it is not smoothed out and lacks product it will fuzz. There are a few grey headed clients who I have come across that won’t need to remember all of the above as it naturally looks silvery, white and smooth.

Jennifer Lopez Curly Hair

 

Embrace your bounce by defining and emphasising your kinks.

Cut: 

The trick to mastering manageable curls is to select a style that will complement your curls rather than fight against them. Ask your hairdresser to banish bulk with a low maintenance cut that takes weight out of length while encouraging natural movement and bounce. Avoid high maintenance styles that requires too much blowdrying, as it will only dehydrate your strands.

 

Short Curly Hair

 

Colour:

Dark solid shades can make your kinks appear heavy, so add definition by lightening your lengths a little. Don’t be tempted to try all-over bleaching as your hair type is already naturally dry and it will increase dehydration, making it prone to breaking and frizz.

Style:

Using a wide tooth comb, evenly distribute a curl-enhancing product through damp hair and then twist to add shape. Invest in a diffuser attachment for your hairdryer – an essential tool for creating perfect curls – and gently place small sections of your hair inside the diffuser while you blast, leaving them to dry.  Finish by running a few drops of serum or oil through your strands to keep them frizz free and shiny.

Care:

Nourish your strands without wearing them down, with a curl specific shampoo and moisture rich conditioner. A weekly hydrating mask and leave-in conditioner will also help keep your hair hydrated and fight fluffiness.

Ask your hairdresser for a BOB that sits above your shoulders.

The ends require to be softly frayed with some gentle texturising rather than the sharp blunt line we all identify BOBS with.

Long or disconnected layering helps with movement and the best thing about it is you don’t require a lot of time styling it neatly as those ends need to move.

How to : Apply volumising spray on damp hair combing it through before blow-drying it smooth. For extra texture sprinkle hair powder on to the ends and ruffle it through – easy!
