Get a haircut that makes you feel amazing.

  1. Rock your grey hair with a confidence-boosting haircut. When you have grey hair, your self-confidence is everything. Getting a haircut that flatters your face shape and matches your lifestyle can help you look younger. All you have to do is go up to a mirror and pull your hair back. Take a lipstick or dry erase marker and trace the shape of your face onto the mirror—a round, oval, diamond, oblong, heart, or square shape will stare back at you.[1]
    • If you have a round face, opt for a cute pixie cut.
    • If you have an oval face, try blunt bangs.
    • If you have a diamond face, give side swept bangs a try.
    • If you have an oblong face, opt for a layered lob.
    • If you have a heart face, go for long layers.
    • If you have a square face, try a classic bob.

Try wearing fun, bold accessories.

  1. Pops of color against grey hair will turn back the clock. Think of your silver locks as a fresh canvas to work with. Your hair's white and cool undertones are the perfect pairing for red-rimmed glasses, vibrant headbands, and even gold jewelry.
    • Add a pop of color to your lips to match your accessories! A matching lip and accessory duo will keep you looking young and fresh.[6]
    • Silver hair doesn’t mean ditching the gold jewelry. Dainty gold pieces can add just a hint of yellow to your look without bringing out any yellow undertones in your hair.[7]
    • Ultimately, wear accessories that make you feel confident.
