Embrace grey, like Cynthia Nixon as Miranda in Sex And The City spin-off And Just Like That.

If like the stars of Sex And The City you’ve decided to go grey, celebrity hairstylist and Jerome Russell ambassador, Jason Collier, shares his top tips for you.

Go natural

Natural hair colours are in fashion and growing old gracefully will always be a powerful statement. If you’re naturally grey or going grey, the hair colour can be low effort which also means low maintenance.

Some people think grey hair is a singular shade, but there are many tones from a light “silver fox” to a dark “wolf grey”, as well as different colour effects from the transitioning to grey, including “salt n pepper” where the hair is like fine highlights between light and dark, “greige” which is a soft blend of mousey beige tones with grey highlights, and ‘white sand’ which is a blend with light, beachy blonde.

Most recently we saw Oyster Grey trending, a pearlescent grey, and as more people embrace or choose grey hair tones, there are bound to be more grey hair trends to follow.

Tone wolf

If you are naturally going grey, it’s best to enhance the shade it has naturally gone by going with that same tone all over.

To add dimension to grey hair, go up a shade or two in grey to lift it – this effect suits everyone and helps to maintain greys from going yellow with neutralising tones. If you’re dying hair to grey but don’t know the best shade, always go by your skin type – for cooler skin tones, go for icy shades – for warmer skin tones, go for sandier grey shades.

Soften the glow

Going grey isn’t a quick transition, so have fun with it – add different tones and make your grey how you want it! Grey-blending is a technique to help growing out colour look more natural, creating a softer transition to grey.

Adding low lights creates a darker base and allows your grey to highlight your hair, adding a natural colour lift or highlighted effect. Adding highlights instead of low lights for hair with a darker base already is the alternative.

Essential rules

l Keep the yellow away! Grey hair can easily stain. Air pollution can be the main cause of this, so it’s essential to use a specialised grey hair shampoo and conditioner.

l Fight the brittle hair. As we age, the strands of hair will no longer contain as much melanin, which can lead to brittle dry hair. The best way to prevent this is by using a bonding treatment that can help rebuild and moisturise.

l Not everyone is lucky to have a uniform colour, so don’t be afraid of getting a little help to streamline the colour. A simple toner can uniform the shade and enhance the shine.
