"Gray hair is God's graffiti!" How perfectly did famous American actor, comedian and author, Bill Cosby, explain gray hair! Women especially worry a lot when they discover more than one silver strand in their hair. While some accept these as part of the aging process, others promptly cover them up with a hair color of their choice. However, you should know that developing gray hair doesn't necessarily mean you are out of choices for hairstyles! There are still plenty of trendy hairstyles that you can choose from. Your age has very little to do with the fashionable hairstyles that you can sport. There are various short hairstyles that you may like to flaunt. Take a look.
Trendy Hairstyles to Try
"Gray is the new black!" Think Meryl Streep, Helen Mirren, Judy Dench, Emmylou Harris, Paula Deen, Jamie Lee, and Nichelle Nichols; all of them share one thing in common, and that is their dazzling gray hair. All of them gracefully flaunt their short but strikingly styled gray hair and stand out amongst a thousand others! Rule number one is to choose a hairstyle that best suits your face shape, without fretting about your age. Here's a look into some fashionable hairstyles for your silver strands.
The least difficult hairstyle to maintain if you have gray, thinning hair, this is one hairstyle that you can positively opt for. It does not have to be as short as shown here; you can opt for variations by having side-swept bangs with the rest of the hair being slightly longer. Or you could opt for a fringe for a fuller look.
The bob never seems to go out of style, and this hairstyle is perfect for all women who prefer their graying hair short. Ideal for straight hair that lacks volume, you can choose to go with a fringe with this hairstyle if you have a long forehead; or you can just have even-length hair all over and still look simply perfect.
Women who think they can't wear their curly hair short are definitely mistaken. The curly bob adds grace and charm to your graying hair, and is one of the best short haircuts for curly, gray hair. Style it every so often to maintain it for longer hours, and you will definitely be able to pull off this classic look with your curly hair.
Extending up to the nape of the neck, the long bob is ideal for women with wavy/thinning hair. It looks naturally stylish and is therefore low maintenance. Apply some styling gel and scrunch the ends to define your wavy hair, or straighten with a flat iron for a sleeker look. Again, you may opt for bangs if you like.
Similar to Paula Deen's classic hairstyle, these short layers are perfect for women with fine but wavy hair. They do require a little more maintenance than the other hairstyles mentioned here, but it is not as difficult as you may think it is. Just blow-dry your hair and apply a little hair spray to keep it in place.
Tips for the Right Style
These are a few simple tips that will help you pull off the aforementioned short hairstyles for women with gray hair confidently.
- Find a good hairstylist and trust her/him. Be open to her/his suggestions to try some innovative hairstyles. Such individuals usually take all aspects of your appearance into consideration before suggesting a hairstyle to you.
- Use a shampoo that suits your hair type to maintain its quality, and your new hairstyle.
- Try to opt for bangs and feathered side fringes that work well to enhance the short hairstyles you may opt for.
Short hairstyles are quick, practical and the best solutions for you to look glamorous while showing off your gray hair to the world without being embarrassed about it! Proper hair care with an elegant hairstyle will definitely help you confidently flaunt your new look.
