Sooner or later everyone will see white gradually color their hair. When your hair becomes predominantly white or gray, its texture will change and the cut you had before may no longer be suitable. You must then make an appointment with the hairdresser to change your haircut so that it is more suited to your desire for a change.
Long doomed to disappear under layers of coloring, white hair has been making a comeback for several years. Following the example of incredible hair transitions, women and men are increasingly taking responsibility for their white and gray hair! Celebrities are not for nothing, because whether on the red carpets or during photocalls, it is no longer rare to observe their beautiful silver hair, like those of Andie MacDowell, Jodie Foster, Meryl Streep, or Sharon Stone.
But when white hair is poorly styled or the cut is poorly suited, it can immediately give a neglected effect and not show off. And if you have white hair when you're barely 30 (yes it even happens, gray hair doesn't happen until after 50), a bad haircut can quickly age you. It is therefore important to choose carefully the cut you are going to make when your hair becomes salt and pepper, silver, or entirely white.
"When you get to a certain age, you can't wear long hair anymore." This sentence, many people know it by heart. Often said by family members or friends, she suggests that long hair is reserved for "young people." But it is quite the opposite. When you have white hair, long, silvery hair that covers your back and can go all the way down to your butt, it always works. To avoid weighing down the features, don't hesitate to opt for layered, tapered, or wavy lengths.
But beware, who says long hair says daily maintenance! If these lengths are not maintained, the "wow" effect will not be there. So don't be afraid to go regularly to cut damaged and split ends to the hairdresser. But it's also important to brush your long hair morning and night to avoid tangles. It also gives them shine and volume if done correctly. Due to its very dry nature, it's also important to regularly nourish and hydrate your gray hair to keep it shiny and supple for as long as possible.
Long hair also offers a great possibility of hairstyles. You can leave them loose, wave them, curl them, straighten them, braid them, tie them in a ponytail. It is also easy to reproduce the fashionable hairstyle of the moment: the bubble braid. The messy bun is also a cool hairstyle to achieve.
The great thing about gray hair is that you can achieve any hairstyle, as long as you like it and it fits your face shape. If you don't like long hair, but don't want to end up with a short haircut either, the bob is the perfect alternative. And good news, there are a large number of them: from the French bob to the plunging bob to the long bob, you are spoiled for choice.
If you have a round face, you can go for a fuzzy, slightly wavy bob, which falls over your shoulders, to add volume and a bit of length to your cut. The square plunge is not has-been, provided it is done correctly. The difference in length between the hair at the back of your neck and those around your face should not be too great for the cut to remain trendy, especially if your hair is white. The French bob is undoubtedly the fashionable square par excellence. It stops at the neck and is worn blurry, with layered or even locks. Its advantage? It highlights all faces and can be worn on straight hair as well as curly or frizzy!
For a trendy hairstyle that subtly reveals the silvery highlights of your hair, you can curl your bob or give it a subtle wavy effect.
While some short haircuts can make you look older, the effect is reversed when your hair turns graying. Indeed, when you have your hair adorned with white, some short cuts can make you look younger. Short cuts are among the most suitable cuts for this hair, which generally becomes a little duller, finer and drier when it loses its natural color. So, to bring volume and movement without too much difficulty, you can choose to go for the shortcut.
Here too, there are many different short cuts: pixie cut, boyish cut, short cut shaved on the sides, short rock cut, unstructured short cut... The shortcut is ideal for those who do not have much. time to spend on hair care. Indeed, it requires much less maintenance than a square or long hair and in the morning it combs in two steps three movements. Guaranteed success.
Bangs are not about hair color, whether yours is natural or not, nor about age. It is above all a question of taste but also of morphology. Indeed, whether you have a large or small forehead, a square or oval face, you can achieve bangs in any case, but it will be very different from one face to another.
Long straight bangs work best with long hair or bobs and people with fairly large foreheads and elongated faces. The short bangs can adapt to short haircuts and perfectly show off oval faces. Rounded bangs are ideal if you have a square face. Thin, tapered bangs highlight round faces. Finally, the famous curtain bangs worn by Brigitte Bardot in the 60s have come back into fashion in recent seasons, and good news, they adapt to all face shapes!
