The Best Colors to Camouflage Grey Hair

Going grey is a unique experience, with no right or wrong answers – just a multitude of exciting options. It depends on your natural color, skin undertones, and the look you want to achieve. You could stick to a shade close to your natural hue or try something new.

However, some colors are naturally good at camouflaging or complementing grey hair:

  • Blonde highlights - the difference between the blond and silver is subtly enchanting.
  • Silver hair - it’s on trend and conceals root growth.
  • Warm brown shades - to add extra glow to your complexion without making you look tired.
  • Opt for gloss - add extra shine to your existing shade to boost lackluster locks.

Short-Term Solutions - In Between Colorings

1. Root Concealer Spray

Use a root concealer spray to hide grey hairs in seconds for flawless roots. Our Magic Touch Root Concealer contains a pinpoint micro-diffuser targets greys and the temporary, lightweight formula matches seamlessly with your hair colour. It lasts until washed out and is also ammonia and peroxide free – making it the perfect option for spacing out hair coloring sessions.

2. Root Concealer Precision Brush

Another option is a root cover-up brush to achieve precise, quick coverage for a few standout grays. The brush targets scattered grays to touch up roots and cover gray hair. Using the precision tip, you can hide grey intruders on any hair type or texture.

Longer-Term Solutions – For Lasting Color and Shine

3. Permanent Hair Color

If you’re looking for long-lasting results, opt for permanent hair color. A hair dye like Excellence Créme Permanent Triple Protection Hair Color combines full grey coverage and triple protection before, during and after coloring. Choose the same shade as your hair color or why not try something slightly different to refresh your look?

4. Highlights

If you prefer a low-maintenance option that doesn’t require consistent follow-ups, highlights may be the answer. Adding highlights to dark hair is one of the easiest ways to disguise any greys and avoid creating a strong contrast with your dark base.

Alternatives - Go All Grey

5. Transition To Natural Grey Hair

You might also be ready to embrace your natural grey color. Just remember that the transition is slow. During this period, you could use semi-permanent hair dye, gradually choosing shades that are closer to your natural grey color. Or add highlights to create a flattering all-over salt-and-pepper effect. If you’re impatient or feeling bold, an ultra-short pixie cut will speed up the process.

6. Go Silver

Silver is now a popular color in its own right, even with a younger audience. You could dye your entire head or add silver streaks to light hair for depth and dimension. A shade like smokey silver adds subtle shimmer. Depending on how much natural grey you already have, you may need to bleach your hair first.
