It’s something every human on earth will experience despite their race. As Daphne Sashin, Beauty Writer at WebMD, noted:

“Typically, white people start going gray in their mid-30s, Asians in their late 30s, and Blacks in their mid-40s. Half of all people have a significant amount of gray hair by the time they turn 50.”

You’ll find them all in this post. Let’s get started.

5 Grey Hairstyles that‘ll Suit You

Wear any of these hairstyles in any length of your choice and thank us later:

1. Bob

If you need something that’s easy to maintain, go for the classic bob. Why? The shorter your hair is, the easier it is to style.

Furthermore, this style isn’t just low-maintenance. It suits every woman regardless of her face shape. You can make your bob stop at the nape of your neck or extend a bit to your shoulders. You can even give it a blunt cut if you want.

2. Pixie Cuts

Did I praise the bob for being easy to style and maintain? Well, looks like we found another coiffure that’s better at that.

Pixie is a short gray hairstyle that requires little or no styling. It frames your face and doesn’t need you to spend so much time in the mirror when it’s time to go out.

3. Gray Afro Hair

Do you have type C or kinky hair? Why not rock your natural hair in all its gray glory?

If it’s not gray enough, feel free to ask your stylist to tint it fully grey.

4. Low Cut

You can as well cut your hair low and rock it gray.

Again, this style won’t stress you. Your hair will be low and so you’ll only need to brush it to look neat.

5. Shoulder Length Gray Hairstyle

Rock your gray hair in hairstyles that stop at the shoulders.

For more accents, ask your stylist to cut your hair in different lengths to create layers. You’ll look great.

6. Shag Hairstyle

Hairstyles with bangs are cute. They’ll even better on an older woman who’s got style.

8. Wavy Gray Hairstyles

Need to add some accents to your straight hair? Make it wavy.

You can do this by either using a heat styling tool on your natural hair or opting for a wavy wig and coloring it gray.

9. Curly Grey Hair

This style is similar to wavy hair only that the curls are tighter and firmer rather than wavy.

10. Grey Braids

If you don’t wanna wear weaves or rock your natural hair, go for braids.

But install them with grey attachment hair extensions to highlight your grey hair. 

11. Gray Locs

If you don’t want that, install faux locs or lock your gray hair the natural way.

Whichever of the two locs you go for will give you a charming look.

If you don’t want them bold, go for mild colors like nude, brown, coral, rose, etc.

How can I Look Younger with Grey Hair?

If you don’t wanna look older with gray hair, pay attention to your overall look. Don’t dress up in ways that give people the impression you’re old. Maintain a chic style in all your outfits no matter how gray your hair looks.

Also, take note of your makeup. Stick to light makeup to complement your face. Heavy makeup can make you look older and you don’t want that, do you?

In addition, shun the belief that grey hairstyles are only for the aged. You can rock the hairdo with aplomb and youthfulness like you’re 20 years younger. But first, it all begins with your mindset.

Writing has always been a part of me. From writing stories as a young child to studying Communication Arts in the university, it has always been more than a medium of expression to me.

And then one day, I found myself toeing the path of an entrepreneur and becoming a fashion enthusiast. This made me develop an interest in content marketing and copywriting which I've been chasing alongside my fashion career.

That aside, when I'm not sharing style articles, selling with stories, or creating fashion-forward pieces for Ria Kosher, you'll find me telling wild stories that always come with a twist.
