Going grey gracefully? Not quite…
A grey or silver hair is traditionally seen as a hue flaunted by more mature women, seeing as our hair naturally turns such shades as we age. But as of late, we’ve noticed that women under the age of 30 haven’t been waiting to go grey gracefully – instead, they’re dyeing their locks to replicate these metallic shades!
We have a strong feeling that it probably has something to do with Chrissy Teigen’s recent tweet, embracing her grey hairs. And now we’ve seen all the incredible ways that people have been rocking it, we’ve fallen fast and hard for it!
The popularity of this hair hue might surprise you…
But why silver? Well, it is the lightest of all the grey tones, and therefore works as an edgy alternative to platinum blonde hair. And while this shade suits a variety of different complexions, we think it looks best on pale skin tones. Plus, it’s said to really make blue and green eye colours pop! Credit: @erikaseas
While the over 30s have begun embracing brighter shades, those under the age of 30 have been busy trying out a stunning array of grey and silver hair colours! Looks like there’s been a little colour swapping going on.

Whether styled straight and sleek or into tousled waves, this hair colour is guaranteed to always look on-point, which is probably why (in our options) it’s been given such an elevated style status! Credit: @ambsy-k
