Amazing Gray Hairstyles We Love
Although many women dread the day they first spot a gray hair, this shade is beautiful and should be celebrated. That's right: Do. Not. Panic. Instead of rushing to the salon to color your entire head of hair, we believe you should love your natural color. Don’t get caught up in believing those myths about gray hair (no, you can’t go gray overnight), but rather embrace it. If you’re wary of going gray or unsure about not coloring your hair anymore, these gray hairstyles will give you all the confidence you need. Whether you’re in the market for a short hairstyle or a long one, these looks are a few of our favorites. Don’t be afraid of gray—you’ll want to show off all that silver.
Amazing Gray Hairstyles We Love
Silver is so much better than gold.
Center Part with Flipped-Out Curls
A center part works well with toned-down Farrah Fawcett “wings.” The modern version of the look is face-framing and flattering with much less volume.
As your hair starts to grow out gray, the transitional time can look gorgeous, so don’t feel rushed to dye the gray away.
There’s nothing “old lady” about a classic bob haircut.
A spiky, choppy pixie cut is always fun, regardless of your hair color.
Major Side-Swept Bangs
If you’re bored with your cut, try a deeper part with side-swept bangs for the look of more length without the hassle.
The high ponytail will never be out of style, especially in the hot South.
Gray hair shouldn’t hold anyone back from rocking a trendy hairstyle.
Natural Curly Short Cut
Let your color and your curls show the natural beauty you were born with.
A long bob haircut that falls above the shoulders but below the chin is flattering on everyone. Get your hairdresser to cut a few layers for texture and curl it for a soft, wavy look.
Streaky Salt and Pepper
Regardless how your gray, silver, or white grows out, it’s growing out the way it’s supposed to, which means it will only enhance your natural beauty.
Short hair doesn’t have to fall flat. Give your pixie some volume with styling mousse and hairspray.
Long and Straight
Gray hair doesn’t necessarily mean short hair. If your hair is healthy and strong enough to grow long, grow it out and be thankful for your gorgeous locks.
Lots of Layers
Layers add texture, volume, and bounce to hairstyles of any length.
Modern, cute, and daring, this look is anything but a “Mom cut.”
Natural Texture Pixie
Whether your hair is curly or straight, a pixie doesn’t require much styling, so let your hair’s natural texture be the star.
Love Your Shade of Gray
Whether your hair grows out white, light gray, dark gray, or somewhere in between, embrace it, because it’s just as original as you.
Long silver curls look healthy and beautiful.
Sleek and Straight
Even if you’re loyal to your hot rollers or curling iron, try out sleek, straight strands for a fun, no-fuss look.
An asymmetrical cut that’s longer in the front and shorter in the back adds volume but still looks smooth.
A modern version of the shag is having a moment, and we love its face-framing, texturizing effects.
Don’t Change A Thing
Just because you’re starting to gray doesn’t mean you have to run to the hair salon to color or chop your hair—aging is beautiful, so let it happen.
