The 5 Best Haircuts for Gray Hair
For the longest time, the media (and our mothers) told us to cover up the salt that was adding to our pepper. But now, gray is trendy—especially when cut well. Luckily, a number of notable women rock the shade like nobody’s business. So for a little inspiration, here are five of the most flattering cuts for all you silver foxes.
An imperfect pixie like Jamie Lee Curtis
Not only is this cut easy to style, it’s also super flattering if you’ve got a slightly rectangular face with fine features and a long neck like Curtis does.
A tousled lob like Diane Keaton
Lobs are almost always universally flattering—and easy to maintain. Layers add body, and the fact that it doesn’t look too "done" makes it one of your more youthful options.
Curly With Bangs Like Blythe Danner
One of people’s main gripes with gray hair is that it’s more susceptible to frizz. Instead of fighting the texture, embrace it like Blythe Danner, whose loose curls and bangs look polished.
Loose Curls like Andie MacDowell
Andie MacDowell made headlines earlier this year when she arrived at Cannes Film Festival with a head full of cascading gray curls. To keep yours defined and frizz-free, apply a leave-in conditioner from root to tip, focusing on your ends (because they tend to dry out faster).
A close crop like Alice Walker
Just like the color gray, natural hair is also having a well-deserved moment. Walker’s super-short cut requires very little upkeep and it's quite refreshing. (Plus, you really get to show off your earring game.)
