Inspiring Hairstyles For Grey Hair That Will Make You Want To Go Au Natural

Inspiring Hairstyles For Grey Hair That Will Make You Want To Go Au-Natural

Yesterday, I did a blog post on the best shampoos for grey hair, and I figured, since we’re on the topic of grey hair, we might as well dive into it a bit more!

It used to be that only those over 70 sported grey hair, it was considered old. Well, that was then!

Nowadays it’s trendy for all ages to show off some grey highlights or a full grey head. If you’re wondering why? Just check out these hairstyles below! They’ll convince you to ditch the dye and go au natural!

1. Grey Hair with Silver Highlights

Go for a chic bob with grey highlights and lowlights. I love her hair and the best part is, it doesn’t make her look old! In fact, what it does add is some chicness!

2. Icy Silver

You know that awkward in-between stage in life when you’re kinda in no man’s land? That’s often what a drastic colour transition can look like.

The trick to avoiding that is to simply dye the whole head! It’s beautiful and elegant.

3. Silver Bob With Light Blonde Highlights

With highlights of light blonde, this silver tress is really beautiful. Of course, the blunt cut is the killer with this lob. Depending on your face shape, a longer front than the back can add so much style! Check out other straight hairstyles here.

4. Choppy Everywhere

Is it grey, blonde or black? The colouring of this hair is perfect for those transitioning to grey because it has a bit of everything.

If you look closely, you’ll notice how many shades there are in this one hairstyle. It’s got blonde, black and multiple shades of grey.

5. Long Silver Mane

It’s not often that you come across grey hair that looks so healthy, full of life and soft. This women’s hair is pretty amazing and the colour is totally fabulous!

It seems like the ends still have some of her natural hair colours. If I go grey like that, I’ll undoubtedly keep my hair natural!

6. Silver or Blue

The artist who did this hair said the hair is more silvery than blue, but I gotta admit, I love the blue/silvery vibe that the lighting has caused.

It’s a fun take on the classic white and grey colour! Again check out the lowlights and highlights! It’s all in the details!

7. Barbie Vibe

This hair was the hair of my dreams for a looong time! I was always obsessed with Barbie’s hair and I can’t count the number of times I dreamt of having hair like theirs.

I always thought that if I begged hard enough I’d wake up with gorgeous, white straight hair. Yeah, it never happened.

Eventually, I learnt to kinda like my brown frizz! Life can be rough:) Check out some more cute blonde hair ideas here!

8. Short and Solid

Is grey the new blonde? I think she’s pulled it off just as well! I’m having a hard time guessing how old she is, and she has grey hair which you would think makes her look older!

With her golden skin tone, the white contrast of her hair is really complimentary.

9. Voluminous Pixie Cut

Does it get more sophisticated than this? I think not! The colour is utterly fabulous and so is the hairstyle. She’s hashtagged over 40 and fabulous and I couldn’t agree more!

This is one of the most put-together hairstyles for women over 50 but it does take some daily styling to get it right, so only attempt it if you can keep it up.

10. Bright Bob

Another classic for you is this gorgeous bob in grey or more like silver. It’s easy to manage and easy to pull off! Using a purple shampoo every so often will greatly help keep this colour fab!

11. Mid-length Monochrome Hairstyle

This beauty looks like she’s sporting a natural colour change, she’s got her older darker greys at the bottom, with her newer lighter more silvery greys on top. You can call it upside-down balayage- either way, it’s beautiful and so is she!

12. Shoulder-Length With Layers

A pretty impressive transformation! From drab to fab in one sitting, this hairdresser is really something! The hairstyle is really great for older women who still like some hair on their heads. Add some choppy layers at the front to give it some oomph!

13. A-line Bob

Another insane transformation where the hair is barely recognised! There are loads of different silver tones that add so much depth and texture to the hair.

This length is easy to manage, especially if you naturally have straight bouncy hair!

14. Mid-Length Grey Balayage

Apparently, it’s normal to sit at your hairdresser for 9 hours in one session. I’m not sure I would be able to stomach that, but for results like this one, I can understand why people push themselves to go with it!

This grey balayage is absolutely gorgeous. Just look at all those ashy highlights! All you need to do is add some waves and voila- you will be a head-turner!

15. Pixie Cut

For the ever-practical woman, this hairstyle will give you the freedom you need to get on with life. With no styling or colouring needed, your hair will barely need any attention from you and you will still look fab!

16. White hair, don’t care

White hair has become quite the trend in recent years, and it’s easy to understand why! If you have pale skin, it brings out that ice-queen realm in you. One of the hottest hair trends this coming year, and I predict you’ll be seeing a lot of it!

17. Bob Balayage

The balayage trend has no intention of going anywhere this 2023! It’s simply shifted to ashier colours including greys and silvers.

Instead of dyeing your grey hair, change it up a bit and add some lighter greys and silvers to keep it young. Keep it sleek with this stylish bob that is timeless!

18. Grey with Green Tips

Add some spunk to your grey hair with some green tips (or any other deep colour), peeking through the layers! Give it a sharp edgy chop for the full effect!

You can keep this look longer or shorter- both will be effective! Check out more green-inspired hairstyles in our Christmas Hairstyle Lookbook.

19. Silver Blonde Mane

Saving one of the best for last! This bombshell is stunning! Here’s another Barbie look for you, but this time with darker roots which is more on-trend at the moment.

This look is amazing but probably won’t work on those with natural grey hair, as it tends to be dry and this look needs hair that’s very moisturised and hydrated. But why wait until you’re grey to try out this look? There’s no time like the present! Still not convinced to go grey, check out these red and blonde hair color ideas!

  1. I love the variety of fashion trends that are, well, trending nowadays. There are so many ideas for hairstyles alone, and each of them could look really great on someone if done properly. I think we are living in the best time in human history!

    The blue/silvery hairstyle looks incredible in my humble opinion, at least from behind. Although it has to be said, different styles might be more-suited to certain types of faces.

    1. I agree, I also think this is the best time in history! And yes, you’re right before you get your hair styled, be sure it suits your face.
