Should I go blonde if I have grey hair?

People with grey hair often ask our stylists whether they should try going blonde - that’s why Tom Connell, Davines Hair Art Director, decided to create a look to answer exactly that question.

Going silver, grey or white is a completely natural part of life. Some people embrace it fully, others want to make the transition more slowly with a blended approach. Whatever the case, we believe in choosing a look that works for your personality and lifestyle. If you’re looking to refresh your grey without making a drastic statement, ash-blonde is a great place to start.

Ash blonde: the best hue to blend grey hair

When it comes to choosing the right blonde for grey or silver hair, ash is a clever choice, blending seamlessly into grey hair, softening the contrast and making it a really natural way to turn back the hand of time. Ash blonde also avoids the regrowth effect that can come with the choice of a darker colour, making it a low maintenance option that will leave you feeling confident for longer.

Grey hair: don’t disguise it, celebrate it!

If there’s one thing that’s changed a lot in recent years, it’s the way we view aging. We can embrace grey hair, celebrate it and even build on it, using non-committing blonde colours to add warmth or embrace the coolness of your natural colour.

Ash blonde is a great choice for silver hair, allowing you to add delicate creamy blonde tones to create a colour that evolves over weeks and months. The great thing about it is that you can choose to go for a strong look or a subtle one, depending on your personality.

Rich conditioner for blonde-grey hair

As hair becomes grey it can often become dryer too. That’s why it’s essential to use a really nourishing moisturiser to reinforce the hair fibre and add vitality. The Rich Conditioner from our dedicated blonde Heart of Glass line provides intense nourishment, while fortifying the hair fibre, thanks to the exclusive Biacidic bond complex.

How to make blonde last longer on grey hair

If you’re transitioning from grey hair to an ash or other blonde look, you’ll want to use the correct hair products to ensure the new blonde-grey look has luminosity and vitality. The Blonde Longevity salon care treatment from Davines is the perfect choice for prelightened and natural grey hair that needs a boost of energy and nourishment. Importantly, it promotes a colour tone control action, keeping your colour true and giving you shiny, healthy looking hair. For more advice on how to get your perfect ash blonde look and make it last, speak to your nearest Davines stylist today.
