A salt-and-pepper swirl
How it flatters: Embracing graying locks can be so liberating—as well as time- and money-saving since it nixes the need for regular touch-ups! But the combination of dry curly tresses and coarse grays can make hair appear wiry and messy, says stylist George Kyriakos, who cut Shana’s hair. “To better blend the two together, the key is to remove unnecessary bulk from the back and add layers throughout,” he explains. “This leaves flattering volume and softer texture.”
Get the look: Ask your stylist for a cut that hits at the shoulders and is slightly longer in the front (pros call this technique “angled forward”) with long layers throughout and thinned-out ends. And to keep gray hair looking soft, Kyriakos recommends using a hair mask infused with hydrating argan oil (we like Eva NYC Therapy Session Hair Mask,
