When you start spotting silver strands of hair on your head, don’t fret. It’s a sign of aging. But that doesn’t mean your gorgeous days are over. With these grey hairstyles, you can look as beautiful as a teenager come youth, come age.
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.”Daphne Sashin
But with the right coiffure, those gray strands will look even more beautiful than black, brown, or any youthful hair. How? If you wear cute grey hairstyles for young and aging women.
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:
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
Speaking of layers, you can also wear a shag cut.
It’s one that has layers in different lengths be it wavy, short, long, or straight.
7. Gray Hairstyles with Bangs
How about you add a fringe around your forehead?
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.
What Lipstick Color Goes Best with Gray Hair?
Any bold lipstick color looks good with a gray hairstyle. It could be red, pink, orange, purple, etc.
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.
