Gray hair styles can be soft, dramatic or edgy, as they are no longer a look associated with people of a certain age! So if you have skin tones with a neutral or cool undertone, you can wear a fabulously trendy, gray hairstyle and still be gorgeously glam.
Long gray to ice-blue blonde ombré – gray hairstyles
This hair color is easiest to achieve on dark-blonde hair as shown at the roots on this model. Her natural hair does not have any warm tones in it, so you can get white and silver-blonde tones without over-bleaching the hair. And that’s very important when you’re dealing with such lovely, long hair tresses. This is an original twist on the long, blonde and wavy hairstyles that we love, showing a far more sophisticated look!
Superb silvery-gray sheen on long straight hair – gray hairstyles
This fabulous long bob is full of lovely textures created by the play of light and shade on the gray and silver hair color design. And the subtle color blend is the stand-out feature bringing a long straight style to life, without need waves. A high fashion color like silver is an eye-catching look, so you need to keep your hair in excellent condition. But as you can see, it’s a fantastic way to get a modern look on long, straight hair!
Pale blue-blonde vertical highlights on plaited gray hairstyles
These two hairstyles show off the technique of vertical highlights in trendy, new colors. The gray base is given a strong 3-D effect from lots of ice-blue highlights, which are fine near the top, but wider near the tips. This adds texture and movement, accentuating the curved edge in the long, straight bob. And produces an exciting contemporary edge to the broad-braided, half-up style with shaggy, textured tips!
Beige- & ash-blonde long straight bob – gray hairstyles
Now this shade of gray is actually warmer than those with ice-blue tones. So it’s softer on complexions that have a warm undertone, because it includes beige tones. The roots are medium dark-blonde or mousey-brown. And a little beige toner has been added to put a touch of color in the mix. Lower down, the ash-blonde ombré is given a modern twist with straight cut, geometric tips. So this is a good style for fine hair.
Long balayage bob with circlet braid – 3-D styles for fine hair
The circlet braid must be one of the oldest hairstyles that’s still fashionable with young women today! And you can easily see why, when you think of all the different colors and textures modern stylists invent to keep the look cutting-edge. This hair-color design creates extreme 3-D color depth, contrasting dark-gray roots with oat-white vertical highlights. And adding a touch of color from two shades of golden-beige balayage, softens the overall look.
Chic sleek silver-gray inverted bob on straight fine hair
The contrast of dark gray roots with white and silver-blonde creates interesting texture on this trendy straight bob hairstyle. And although you can’t really see it in a photo image, as the models moves her head, her hair will be constantly catching and reflecting light to suggest lots of attractive movement. It’s the perfect hairstyle for fine, silky hair as it doesn’t rely on natural volume on top and shows of the shine of fine hair beautifully!
Casual top-knot half-up style on straight gray hair
This stylish half-up hairstyle features a super-casual knot of hair and an ‘untidy’ straight pony-tail adding volume at the back. Sweeping hair back from the forehead adds flattering height to low foreheads and round face shapes. This is a sophisticated gray hairstyle with dark roots and ash-blonde on the rest of the hair. It’s perfect for getting the relaxed, ‘jet-set’ look of a rock-chick!
Soft pink-gray hair color on wispy graduated bob haircut
And here’s yet another set of gray shades, tailored to match the model’s cool skin undertones! Instead of being a flat gray hair color, there are at least three main shades blended to create a soft, wispy bob. The roots are medium-warm gray, and there are also pink and blue shades accentuating the waves and creating a subtle 3-D effect. It’s a very trendy twist on the popular inverted bob, with tousled waves adding volume to silky-fine hair!
Edgy long pixie cut with silver-ash blonde top
You can get some fantastic textures on thick hair and the latest ‘triangular’ tresses are one of my favorite new looks. It’s a fresh and original way to wear a long pixie cut. And stylists achieve this look by cutting thick hair into vertical, ‘sliced’ layers. The ends are heavily tapered to create wispy, well defined tips that stand out beautifully against the dark roots. And ice-blue blonde around the top section creates fabulous, eye-catching ‘icicles’!
Medium gray bob with light waves and choppy tips
This easy-wear medium bob haircut is full of modern twists. And changing to a gray shade is this season’s easiest way to update your everyday look. The stylist has left most of the density intact, but added a couple of layers near the tips for texture. The tips are choppy and heavily textured, too. So with the waves above decorated with lighter blonde balayage, the overall effect is lots of light, movement and different textures!
Almost anyone can wear gray hair color successfully. But always consult an expertly trained colorist who can check your natural skin undertones and create a flattering gray hairstyle especially for you!
