Transitioning to Grey Hair: Help Your Clients Go Grey Gracefully

There are four types of grey-haired clients. First, you have those who book in for regular root touch-ups, ensuring silvery regrowth is kept under wraps with a permanent hair colour. The second type prefer a demi-permanent tint that blends silver strays with their lengths. Then, there are the clients who prefer to leave their greys au naturel, simply letting time do its thing.

And, finally, you have the clients whose goal is to embrace their greys wholeheartedly. There’s no hesitation – they’re focused on transitioning to grey hair as quickly as possible. Tired of disguising the inevitable – or ready to try this season’s silver hair trend – they’re look-ing for ways to go grey gracefully. And they need your expertise.

For these clients, the trick is to find a smooth and seamless route to all-over grey, so when their regrowth starts to come through, it blends imperceptibly with the mid-lengths and ends. Depending on your client’s base colour, this could mean they need highlights, lowlights or a soft root shadow. Learn every technique, so you can achieve the glowiest grey looks going…
