3. They just do not like their own color
Sometimes you can dislike your own color because you’ve been comparing your hair with others. Everyone is unique and special and shouldn’t be compared with each other. Be the best apple you can be and don’t try to
be a second rate banana.
4. Following the Trend
Everyone is foiling or shading their hair over their silver hair and you do too. The truth about foiling the hair over your silver hair is that it makes it look yellow, unless the hairstylist first covers the
silver hair with a darker blonde/light brown color and then highlights your hair. Usually only a touch up is required in a month, and then the foiling commences once again. Remember, coloring isn’t a “one size
fits all” process. There is the communication and counseling process in the beginning. There are many who continue to put the wrong color on their hair and keep insisting on the wrong haircut when it not only
doesn’t do anything for them, but subtracts from their beauty (more about this later). This is not the hairstylist’s fault, because the hairstylist wants to bring all your best features out in the color and
haircut. The true trend of today is actually looking great with your silver hair. Ask yourself, how do I see myself and how would I like to see myself?
5. To please others
Your family and friends are all doing it, how could you be any different? But, you are different and do not have do the same thing.
6. For fun
This is quite understandable, especially if you are artistic and into colors. There was a time when I used to keep my hair a party pink or lavender. However, to become a Sexy Silver Fox, you drop the pink and bring out the silver.
7. To be more attractive
There are times when your hair begins to turn “grey” that you seem to “grey out” everywhere, especially in your face. If this is the case with you, then; you need more warmth in your face. Try some reddish tones
to your hair color instead of an ash blonde. The reddish tones will put warmth in your skin tones and bring out your eyes. Don’t forget to put on color instead of wearing the neutral colors. Wear warm colors like
rose, coral or gold; these are colors that will counteract the gray in your face and be sure and put on bright looking scarves and jewelry.
Do not be afraid of makeup. Wear pinks and corals and learn how to blend your foundation and blush.
Some turn prematurely grey. If you are young and have become silver before your time, many times a light blonde tint will help make you feel better at your young age for a season.
Hairstylists examine every head of hair that comes within sight of them. They cannot help it, it is inside of them whether it is conscious or subconscious; your head is going to be
analyzed and they will know in a matter of seconds to a minute whether you tint or perm your hair or both. It doesn’t mean anything personally; their brains are on automatic all of the time. Do not feel intimidated,
it is just the way we are, but be forewarned, whatever you do; do not make a fool of yourself and lie to them telling them that you haven’t colored or permed your hair. The more seasoned professionals won’t argue
with you, but turn away shaking their heads over what you are trying to get away with while underestimating their intelligence, experience and training. It just doesn’t work. The younger colorists will be shocked
that you are trying to get away with saying such a thing. The only one you are fooling is yourself.
When we watch television we automatically know who is wearing extensions, who has colored their hair and who hasn’t. We also visualize how someone would look with a better haircut.
We can see how it would improve them, so when we see a newscaster wearing the same old dragged haircut day in and day out and covering up her grey with a drab dark brown that does nothing for them, we just want to
get our hands on their hair!
Summing up, there isn’t anything wrong with covering up your “gray” hair when you are convinced that this must be done. The final difference is with those who see the silver
instead of the “grey.” It is how you see yourself. In the end, you are the one who must be at peace with your hair and this means feeling really good, maybe even a Sexy Silver Fox.
