GIG What's The Best Hairstyle For Grey Hair

You can only imagine the amount of questions I get about grey hair. Beyond the normal questions about my own hair, people think that I am a grey hair specialist. Well…maybe I am!


So this question from Denise comes as no surprise.


What’s The Best Hairstyles For Women With Grey Hair?


reader question #2 for gorgeous in grey

Denise, you are absolutely correct! A “sharp” hairstyle is what will make your grey hair on-trend. Both sides of my hair have been shaved for almost three years. I’ve always been edgy and a bit braver than the norm. But it’s all about what your comfort level is. Mine is pretty high, clearly!

Here’s a few hairstyles that will work for grey hair whether it’s short, medium, or long!

Classic Bob:

Highlight the outlines of your face with an inverted bob, one of my favorite haircuts for grey hair. This cut will accentuate your jaw line or cheeks in an attractive way and it can be quite easy to keep up.

Epic Curls:

If you are looking for a short but a more defined look, opt for sliced layers. This hairstyle can been seen on tons of celebrities. This is one of the more trendy short grey hairstyles for women. Since it requires added bounce on the crown and flipped out layers you going to need a stylist to help you maintain this one.

Choppy Pixie:

Eva Marcille is a great example for what a pixie cut can do for the face. This cut is perfect for grey hair and can be both girlish and modern. Because it’s a super-short haircut, it puts low burden on thinning locks and regular maintenance of your hair.

If your hair is long, I say cut it. It’s boring. That’s why you are reading this post, LOL.

Whatever style you are rocking it’s more important to have healthy hair! So be easy with that flat-iron and deep condition weekly.

    Classic bob and epic curls both look good on women with gray hair. But I think, some type of short gray cuts can be more stylish than those classic bob and epic curls

    Hi there, I have been relaxing my hair for a while, but now that I am 80% grey I’m struggling to remove the yellow from my hair, no matter what I use it still is yellow. I don’t know what else to do.

      When I stopped relaxing my hair the less yellow it was. Also lay off the heat.
