Sassy Styles For Those Graying Locks

Some women desperately try to hide graying locks, but that’s totally unnecessary. Gray hair is something that should be embraced. In fact, silver strands compliment most skin tones and can even enhance your features. Just because your hair is starting to gray doesn’t mean that you have to throw trendy hair styles out the window. Gray shades are not what ages a woman. Unflattering, unkempt gray hair styles are what really shows the effects of aging. Here are some ultra trendy gray hair styles that will keep you looking young and hot:

gray hair style razor layered bob
  • Save
Bobs are super trendy and they are only getting more popular. They can be one worn with straight, smooth hair or a tousled texture. You can even wear an angled bob to add dimension and definition to your hair style. Gray hair looks especially nice with a smooth bob, because silver shades are usually very sleek and shiny. Razor layered bobs are usually the best way to go to keep hair manageable, so if you prefer little maintenance, ask your hairdresser for this cut.

Medium length gray hair style with side swept bangs
  • Save
A shoulder length cut with side-swept bangs is super flattering on gray hair. The key to wearing this hair style is keeping hair smooth and sleek. Blow dry your hair with a round brush to remove frizz and to add volume. Use a pomade on the bangs in the front to keep them out of your face and apply a silicone product all over to add shine and promote silkiness.

Short gray haircut with flipped ends
  • Save
A short, layered cut with flipped up ends looks very youthful and beautiful on women with gray hair. Adding bangs to this style can help frame your face and accentuate your features. Once you have cut short layers into your hair you will need to straighten your hair with a flat iron and bend the ends of your hair with the edge of the straightener. Using a texturizing product throughout your hair will create a fun, piecey look.
Long gray hair with beachy waves
  • Save
Beachy waves or a stylized, messy texture can look great in long gray hair. Using a sea salt spray in your hair while it is still wet and letting it air dry can give you a sassy twist on your normal hair style. If you scrunch your hair while it is still wet, your waves will be more sculpted. This style is very modern and fashionable. The best part is that it is very easy to achieve and it looks great.

Pixie haircuts look fabulous in gray hair. They are fresh and fierce and they show a whole lot of attitude. Pixie cuts require a little bit of upkeep because they are so short and need to be trimmed frequently to maintain the shape. The great thing about these cuts is that they do not require a lot of time to style in the mornings. You can simply use a bit of light hold gel all over to keep your hair straight and in place.
