Grey and silver hair shades are enjoying their moment in the sun at present, popping up on runways and red carpets worldwide. So, if you think grey is a shade just for grannies, perhaps you need to do a rethink. There can be something unique about a young face topped with a mane of silver or grey hair.

Moreover, covering those grey roots is no longer obligatory, and staying golden blonde forever can seem like way too much work. It can be gorgeous when a woman owns her age and allows her hair to go grey naturally with confidence.  

But like many things in the world of beauty, achieving perfect grey hair is not easy. In fact, silver hair might be one of the toughest colours to maintain. It requires quite a bit of work and maintenance, and you have to go into it well informed. Opt for the right silver hair colour for your skin tone; otherwise, you could have an unflattering effect on your skin. It’s better to opt for lots of different shades of grey to really make the look come alive rather than trying to achieve one solid silver or grey tone across your hair as a whole. 


Here are some stunning grey shades that can make you look both attractive and stylish.
