My question is a little (a lot) self-indulgent, but I want to hear about how to groom greying hair (mine is frizzy and blah). I color it, but It doesn’t respond like it used to. As well, can you give us some fabulous hairstyles to consider? I love your newsletter!
Thanks for your question and nice comment! We turned your hair question over to our Fabulous after 40 Celebrity Hairstylist, Billy Lowe. Here’s what he had to say:
Hi Ana, Yes, grey hair can be a bit challenging. It is often wiry, unruly looking, and can leave one feeling helpless. But not all hope is lost.
The answer is called product – product – product.
- First of all, think about how much time you actually have to work within styling your hair. If you don’t have a lot of time, I recommend a light styling cream, and a light hold spray. The cream will help tame the ends and give you more control throughout the day. The light hold spray helps hold the shape as well.
- If you have more time, then a little round brushing and a hairdryer will do the trick every time. Once again, I recommend finishing with a light hold spray, or firm hold spray if you prefer more control.
- Adding color to hair does help give some level of control to the hair and many color formulations these days give a greater amount of polish, shine, and condition to the hair. Ask your salon professional about the appropriate color (or color type) for you.
- Biggest rule – NEVER DO IT YOURSELF.
I look forward to hearing your results!
