Greige Hair Is Trending—And You’ll Actually Want to Try This Cool Neutral
If you’re a lover of the recent cool-toned hair color movement—Mushroom brown, anyone?—then it’s time to hop on the new multi-dimensional neutral known as greige. (Read: gray + beige = greige) And if greige isn’t already your favorite neutral, it definitely should be. Beige and gray are those catch-all colors you can always rely on: Relaxing, uncomplicated, and universally flattering when it comes to most things, now including hair color. By combining the two shades, you create an ashy neutral that blends the best qualities of each, resulting in a striking, yet incredibly wearable shade. It works on cool and warm skin tones alike to create dynamic blends, whether you’re into sandy beige with subtle touches of ash gray or ash gray with rich strokes of biscuit blonde. Layering hair shades ranging only from cool to neutral browns, blondes, and grays is the secret to getting the perfect tint. We’ve rounded up the most versatile greige hair color inspirations to show why this neutral needs to be your next pick.
