Looking natural is a great recipe for hairstyle success at any age. It is particularly important for best agers. There is really no reason to worry about looking older or grey hair. The pretence of a young look can be very taxing but keeping your creativity alive and embracing modern styles is a lot of fun

  • More and more women allow their hair to go grey if only to make an end of the tedious and costly task of hiding it. As the years went by, many women gathered sufficient confidence to quit colouring their hair and trying to regain lost youth. Of course, just because the hair is grey the hairstyles do not have to be boring or unimaginative. Styled with confidence, grey hair looks appealing. Going grey is now a trend among older women. In our gallery, we show creative and beautiful hairstyles featuring grey hair.

    Women no longer hide greying hair, and this did not go unnoticed in the fashion industry. In her work, designer Yeohlee Teng makes a point of efficiency and sustainability. She seems to carry these principles into her hair styling. Yeohlee Teng’s long grey hair with its minimalistic styling has a modern appeal. Long straight hair and a high straight side parting are the only styling elements. Such simplicity calls for diligent hair care. Split ends and dull hair would take all the glamour out of this beautiful hairstyle. The hair needs regular conditioning and ideally, the hair should be allowed to air-dry after shampoos.

    If your hair is wavy apply heat protectant and straighten it strand by strand using a flat iron. A trace of extra gloss hairspray will deepen the healthy glow.
