Dye gray hair? A few years ago, that was almost taken for granted. Even now, many women find it very difficult to simply let their gray hair grow out. It may be out of insecurity, fear of looking older, or feeling that way yourself. The reasons can be different and very personal. But the good news is that natural gray is already very popular. At least since “granny hair” became a popular hair trend, gray hair has been considered absolutely in. In addition, there is the increasingly popular attitude to look as natural as possible. Today we would like to give you a few good tips on how to make the transition to your natural gray much easier. Also, below are some stylish and natural looks that will definitely make you want to stop dying gray hair.
Many younger women even choose to dye their hair gray
Grow out gray hair
Of course, if you think you should dye gray hair, it doesn’t matter. This is your own decision and you should stand by it. However, if you are already fed up with the constant coloring of your hair and want a natural yet trendy look even when you are older, we can warmly welcome you to the transition to natural grey. However, this is not so easy and quick. You need a bit of patience, the right tips and a good hairdresser who will give you professional support.
The professional gray hair transition
Spice up or conceal gray hair with highlights
When hair coloring fails, we all know that the hairline is slowly showing. And if this has already become visibly gray over time, the whole thing doesn’t look particularly nice. Just walking around feeling uncomfortable for a few months or even a year is not a solution and not an option at all. The right decision would be to ensure the best possible conditions for the hair to grow out in peace, while feeling optimally comfortable. This works best with some sophisticated hair coloring techniques that work with highlights. But highlights are not just highlights. Below are the best methods to help you grow out your gray hair.
Dyeing gray strands in brown hair is one of the many ways to optically minimize the gray roots. These can be a bit wider, but also simply delicate baby lights. Depending on the hair type and shade of grey, you can discuss this with your trusted hairdresser.
Balayage or hair painting
Two other trendy and fairly popular coloring techniques for gray hair are balayage and hair painting. Slightly wider strands are conjured up into the hair freehand. The effect is unique. The strands not only set beautiful accents, but also give the hair a certain depth and more structure. They reach deep into the hairline and conceal it in a skilful and very flattering way.
The “merging” of gray shades into each other looks fabulous on hair. Here the hairdresser can skilfully play with different nuances in ash blonde, silver or anthracite and create a wonderful hair symphony in grey.
Gray hair can really be spiced up by trying out face framing. The front strands are deliberately kept lighter so that the face looks optically framed. This draws attention to it and keeps the roots growing out less visible. In addition, there are of course a few more strands on the rest of the hair, which ensure a harmonious look. Gray short hairstyles look simply stunning with it, but long, gray hair can also benefit from this dyeing technique.
Use special cosmetics for gray hair
For those of you who don’t want a coloring technique when growing out your hair, there are other ways. These are not necessarily easier and cheaper, but everyone can decide for themselves for or against. Namely, you can make the transition to your natural gray hair with the help of special root sprays and powders. These conceal the gray hairline with a hair color that comes closest to your natural hair. However, this only happens on the hair surface. This means that after washing the hair, the coloring is gone again. Finding the right hair color for you is also pretty tricky. We even advise against it for blondes and ladies with copper-colored hair.

Hair accessories will also help in the transition to natural gray
When the gray hairline grows out, many hair accessories such as hairbands, towels or hoops are absolute must-haves. Especially when it comes to longer hair, you can make good use of it. You can try a casual updo or a messy bun and add a pretty hair clip or glittery bobby pin to it. A few curls or light beach waves will add a playful touch and make you look much younger. Who even thinks about the hairline!

There are certainly other good tips and tricks as well as methods if you no longer want to dye gray hair. We’ve tried to bring you the best of them. Discuss everything in detail with your hair stylist next time you visit the salon. He most likely has even more professional know-how and will optimally help you with the transition to natural gray hair.
