Grey ombré hair is the edgy and unique combination of two of the hottest trends in hair today: a youthful take on grey hair and the ever-present ombré hair coloring method.

There is a range of ways to wear this style that spans everything from more subtle iterations to bold, beautiful versions. Some grey ombré hairstyles fall into the blonde silver ombré hair category, while others are all the way in the grey ombre zone of the color wheel.

Whatever grey ombré hair look you’re aiming for, you’ll be sure to find something that works for you in this collection:



10 Ways to Wear Grey Ombré Hair

Leave a little bit of dark color at your roots for a subtle transition into gray ombre hair.

1. Rooted

One of the best parts about ombré hairstyles is that you still maintain some of your natural color at your roots. You can take your look even a full step further by just leaving the roots dark and diving into the silver hair life with the rest of your strands.

2. Silvery Blonde

Try a shade of blonde so light that it almost looks like silver. Add even more shimmer and shine by spraying your damp hair with a spray of Nexxus Humectress Luxe Lightweight Conditioning Mist. This product will condition your strands and give them an ultra healthy-looking glow.
