A salt-and-pep­per swirl

First For Women - - Style -

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,
