Granny Hair - Don't Care

The Granny Hair trend continues to be a popular color choice.  The shiny, metallic nuances of blue to grey are appearing in women from 15 to 50 and beyond. 

What is the key for making this trend work for your clients?

The hair must be shiny.  Shiny hair is equated with youth and vitality.  Many color lines are specializing in metallic shades which provide dimension and shine for your grey clients.  The newer charcoal shades showcase hair that is glossy and nourished.  This is a welcome reprieve from the overprocessed silver white shades we have seen over the last season.

Can any haircut work with this trending grey color? 

For the most part, yes.  An edgy short cut looks ultra hip when done on grey hair.  Long hair looks more 'fantasy' like or even magical with bluish grey strands woven in.  The only caution would be to avoid this color on any haircut considered a traditional 'grandmother haircut.'

What products are important for maintaining the perfect granny grey color?

Blue-Violet shampoos like Brass Off from Matrix Total Results is a great option to cancel brass on brunette clients. Redken brings their new Graydient Shampoo and Conditioner to the table to cancel unwanted yellow tones.  The violet colored shampoo partnered with the silver toned conditioner, is a winning combination for your lighter grey clients.
