This is a very unusual trend, but silver or grey hair has been quite popular recently. It used to be expected that women would hide their greys, but it is now the most popular color. Here are 21 of the most popular grey hair styles that you should aim for, as modeled by Rita Ora, Pink, Rita Ora, Rita Ora, and Cara Delavigne.
1. MERMAID GREY LOCK

Grey hair requires little commitment. Semi-permanent and temporary colors can be washed out in as few as two to eight washes. It will require more frequent touch-ups, depending on how long you want it to last. It’s a beautiful shade that can be used for a long-term look or short-term fix.
2. GREY AND PINK HAIR

This ombre style is for you if you love to experiment with color. You can experiment with a variety of colors because the light grey color is the perfect background. Semi-permanent colors or wash-in-wash-out colors are easy to change up and rinse out if it’s not working for you.
3. SILVER GREY PONYTAIL

5. BARELY ARE YOU GREY

The dip-dye look is similar to ombre, but without the subtle fading. This look was worn by Rihanna for a while. It’s great for people who don’t want to dye their entire head of hair. You don’t have to make it perfect, but this is a great way for you to transform your hair one at a time.
8. VIOLET TO SILVER HAIR

This unique look is the reverse of a silver/grey to lilac/purple-ombre. You don’t have to keep re-bleaching roots to get the greyish-grey color. Instead, go for a deep plum-purple color.
9. GREY BOB HAIRSTYLE

This shiny, metallic bob is perfect for those with hair that’s not too hard to manage. It can be difficult to decide on a cut, but it can be easier to experiment with different colors. This grey bobbed beauty is proof of that!

It is common for your hair to turn a lilac color when you try to go silver or grey. But don’t worry, this look is still in fashion. This look was popularized by Gennifer Goodwin, who recently liked it. The best part is that you don’t have to do anything if your hair ends up with lilac strands accidentally. It’s okay to say that you wanted this look.
11. FIFTY SHADES of GREY

Instead of trying to achieve a single shade of grey or silver throughout your hair, try to incorporate multiple shades of grey into your look. Multi-toned hair will be easier to wash out and blend, and will add some depth to otherwise dull locks.
12. DARK GREY TO SILVER DIP DYE

You can add depth and dimension to your hair by using different shades of the same but different colors. This hair will look different depending on the light. It can change from silver to pastel colors, white or even lilacs. You can show off the variety of colors in your hair by braiding it or twisting it. You can achieve these curls with your hair straighteners. There are many tutorials online that you can follow. Mermaid hairstyles are all the rage right now and it’s easy to get more mermaid than that.
15. GREY SHADES FOR NATURAL HAIR

These icy-cool shades of grey and silver require a lot of conditioning. If you don’t have the time to wash your hair for at least two days, this will prevent the bleach from damaging your scalp. Badly conditioned hair won’t look good, so don’t bleach it if you aren’t sure if your hair can take the bleaching or lightening.
16. LIQUID METAL + SUPER BLUE HIGHLIGHTS
You can achieve a darker look at home by using darker, permanent dyes. This is a difficult look to achieve if you’re not a professional. This stunning look shows that you don’t have to be icy cool to create the latest winter trend. Warmer, darker greys can also make an impact.
17. The Perfect “GRANNY HAIR” Look

You will need to do some work at home to maintain your hair’s natural beauty. You can build up your hair’s colors by using a “depositing” product. They are available in many beauty and drug stores. Although it may look purple in the container, it can turn your hair gray. It helps to remove yellowing from just-bleached hair.
18. ICY COOL + Bold LIPS

If you have icy-white hair like this, it may be necessary to adjust your makeup routine. You can go bolder if you normally choose neutral or nude colors. This icy color looks great with deep purples and plums. Why not experiment with your new hair?
19. METAL DREAMS

Make sure your hair is well-conditioned to keep it in good condition after any lightening or bleaching. Hair will become dry, brittle, and even break if you don’t use a conditioner. Before you can experiment with this style, your hair must be well-conditioned.
20. ICE QUEEN

This hairstyle is almost Frozen-inspired because it’s so icy that it’s actually blue. These two colors complement each other perfectly, so why not combine them for grey and silver hair? You can choose random strands of hair to be adorned with any shade of blue you like, or go for a half-and-half style that has the top and bottom of your hair in silver. You have the final say! Be creative!
