How can you still look young with grey hair?

Say no to secure cuts

Something like a blunt bob cut highlights our angular face because as we age, the skin’s plumpness reduces. As a result, the ageing effect is increased. But opting for a favorable haircut that lifts the face muscles can give a better appearance. You can try a lob cut, which will likely lift your face making it look fuller and younger.

Embrace your greyness

Most women cut their hair when old probably to avoid showing the greyness. Well, I do not think there is a problem with this transformation. It shows growth which we should appreciate. I advise my clients to accept, embrace, and keep it long. But the best thing to do when choosing this option is to enhance its quality and volume. You can also add extensions to bring a significant outcome.

Use a toner

If you want to look brighter and younger, a toner can transform grey hair. Yellow tones on grey hair usually make it dull and brassy. But adding a toner can make it shinier with a deeper color magnitude, leaving you with a more vibrant and youthful look.
