Growing the grey in means the best cut possible.
Staying with the silver is all about the cut.
When our hair is short, the cut is an easy one; we make the decision for a style and we keep it maintained. Short hair is like that and it needs regular supervision to stay sharp. It is more obvious with short hair when a re-shape is in order; long hair can be deceiving.
Long hair and especially long grey hair needs constant attention and very regular styling. One day silver can look magic, the next dowdy and unattractive. My hair is very long and when I need a trim, I need a trim. The difference a half-inch makes is amazing and the cut makes me feel like a new woman. I’m ready for one now and as well as my hair is blow-dried, shiny or my clothes feel perfect, I don’t. I need a cut and until I have one, I feel messy. (Texting the hairdresser as soon as I finish writing to you.)
Growing in the grey or aiming for long hair is so much easier with a solid shape; whether layers or blunt, it helps. When my hair is looking unkempt my first reaction is to cut it off – if a longer length is the aim, then regular cutting is the answer. I would even go as far as to say trim the hair even more frequently than normal. Little bits and often to get the desired length and also assist with the willpower needed to grow in the grey and add length.
A few twists and waves are one way to hide when a haircut is overdue.
Like the beauty above, her grey looks wonderful long and wavy. Once the length is in the waves are easy and the layers a good way to maintain the wave. Layering shoulder to mid-length hair is another aid to growing in the grey.
Hair, whatever length or shade we choose is all about the cut. Like a tailored blazer or classic pair of pants, the cut is everything.
The key to gorgeous grey is to cut well and cut often. xv
