Gone are the days of trying to cover up naturally graying hair. Believe it or not, going gray is on trend these days and we’ve seen people of all ages sporting silvery locks. Looking for different ways to show off a gray hair color? We’ve rounded up five different shades of gray hair color to try this fall — whether you’re embracing newly sprouting grays or need the help of some hair dye. Ahead, find the inspo you need to help take gray from bleak to brilliant.
We’re all for embracing your natural hair color, but that doesn’t mean you can’t play it up with a little boost. Enhance your natural gray hair by brightening it up with white hair dye for a super modern platinum look. Visit your colorist to lighten the areas where you aren’t naturally white. And use the L’Oreal Paris Le Color Gloss One Step In-Shower Toning Gloss in Silver to tone, neutralize and add a silver finish to naturally graying or white hair, color-treated silver hair or bleached blonde hair.
If you’re not sure about dyeing your hair gray, charcoal gray is the perfect in-between option for those that want to try out the trend without making a huge commitment to silver strands. We love how this cool-toned hue amps up dark hair color in a fun, unique way.
Add a touch of silver to bleach blonde hair by enlisting the help of either a colorist or the L’Oreal Paris Superior Preference Fade-Defying Shine Permanent Hair Color in Soft Silver Blonde. The easy-to-use system makes easing into the ashy gray tone a breeze, especially for first-timers.
In our opinion, gray hair with a deep purple undertone is as chic as it gets. To get the look, chat with your colorist about how to blend a gorgeous violet hue with either your natural gray or color-treated gray hair. Get the look at home by weaving the L’Oreal Paris Feria Multi-Faceted Shimmering Permanent Hair Color in Cool Amethyst throughout your gray hair.
It doesn’t get icier than a cool blue gray mane. This gray hue pairs well with every skin tone and, like violet gray, is an unexpected way to go gray.
To ensure your silvery locks stay that way (and don’t turn yellow and orange), we recommend using a purple shampoo to neutralize unwanted brass. We love the L’Oreal Paris EverPure Sulfate Free Purple Shampoo for Colored Hair and L’Oreal Paris EverPure Sulfate-Free Brass Toning Purple Conditioner.
