How to Cover Grey Hair At Home and At the Salon

Have a Few Greys? Here's How to Disguise Them

Whether you're 22 or 36, you've likely encountered a grey hair or two. And while going grey is part of the circle of life, and there's something liberating about showcasing those silvery strands with pride (see Kristen McMenamy, above), sometimes a lady wants options for disguising these so-called "natural highlights."

When you have just a few: If you have merely a few sparklers in the bunch, Alberto VO5 hair expert Chris Lospalluto says there's nothing wrong with tweezing them out. If you're wary of the old wives' tale that by removing one grey hair, 10 more will sprout out, don't be. That hair myth is just that: a myth.

When you have more than a dozen: If you have a larger, more noticeable quantity popping up, however, and you choose to cover them, Lospalluto recommends heading to the salon for a colourist's advice. "You want to avoid doing colour until the last possible second just because it's a commitment," he says. But the good news is that it's a quick, easy process where your stylist can just paint them out with long-lasting colour.
