Ultimate Guide to Embracing Natural Grey Hair: Exploring the Trend of ‘Grey Blending’

The Instagram account, #Grombre, is dedicated to the “radical celebration of the natural phenomenon of grey hair,” and boasts over 242 thousand followers (and counting) and hundreds of posts of women of all different ages and ethnicities sharing photos of their hair in all its natural icy glory. #greyhair #naturalhair

Meanwhile, female celebs are getting a lot more comfortable with their greys. Actress Shay Mitchell previously admitted, “I call them wisdom hairs – more wisdom, great!” before noting “I am getting older. I am happy. You know what that means? I have more experiences. You can’t freak out about [grey hairs].” But she acknowledged she tends to pluck them out when she comes across them and arguing “if you don’t like it, then dye your hair – no problem.” #ShayMitchell #embracenaturalgrey

And Jennifer Aniston told GLAMOUR, “You do you! If you want to go grey, go for it. If you want to keep colouring your hair, that’s great too. I think everyone should feel confident in whatever choices they make, including embracing natural colour or texture. Hair is a creative way to express yourself, and I love that your mood and energy can change with the change of a hairstyle, cut or colour. Embrace whatever is going to make you happy.” #JenniferAniston #embracenaturalcolour

And, if you don’t want to choose between completely covering or embracing natural grey hairs, you don’t have to. There’s a third camp that sits somewhere between the two. Its name? #GreyBlending.

What is grey blending? “There’s been a move towards natural hair enhancement and Grey Blending is the latest movement in hair colour,” explains Robert Eaton, Wella Professionals Technical Director. The premise is this: by blending highlights or #balayage through your hair, you can offset or accentuate your grey strands, depending on the colours you pair them with. #haircolour #hairtrends
