Styling Short Gray Hair

Q: Can you give me some general tips on how to wear short gray hair without appearing old?
 
fashionable short hairstyle for gray hair A: The best advice I can give you is to remind you to think of your gray hair as simply another color in a broad spectrum of hair colors. Apart from the changes in hair structure that occur as hair turns gray (usually tightening of the cuticle making the hair more resistant, and a slight thickening or coarsening of the hair itself) that is all it truly is. The biggest difference between pigmented hair and gray hair is the presence of coloring pigments.
 
      So, try not the think of your hair styling in terms of what suits “gray hair”. Choose styles that flatter your face and features. Look through style books and find hairstyles in the lengths you like and talk to your stylist about whether they will work with the texture of your hair. As for knowing if a style will work for you to flatter your face and features, be sure to look for “models” with similar facial structure to your own.
 
      It will help you to review the articles we have here on Hairfinder.com about selecting a flattering hairstyle, to know whether your style should be fuller or flatter, with or without bangs, and whether you should go with layers or blunt styles.
 
      One of the best ways to avoid looking old (even though your hair is gray) is to keep your style current. Your salon stylist can help you learn any new styling techniques that are suited to the style you have. By keeping your look up-to-date, you can continue to look vital and vibrant, regardless of whether your hair has only a small percentage of gray, or is snowy white.
