Textured, angled bob
Who says silver strands have to be aging? The key to gorgeous with gray is an easy two-step upgrade: STEP 1: Opt for a shorter cut with lots of texture, says hairstylist Johnny Gaita, who transformed Louise’s hair. “I snipped out the dead, leftover non-gray strands and infused the cut with piecey layers so coarser hair has movement and levity.” For a style similar to Louise’s, Gaita recommends asking your stylist for a long, angled bob that rests just above the shoulders with graduating layers and blended sideswept fringe.
STEP 2: Refresh new grays with a tinted gloss, says colorist Mike Petrizzi, who did just that for Louise’s locks. “The glaze neutralizes the ‘dirty’ and dulling yellow tones gray hair tends to take on, and it smooths the cuticle to boost strand shine and vibrancy.” To do: Apply a gloss (like AGEbeautiful Topcoat Toner in Beige Blonde, SallyBeauty.com) to damp hair, combing through from roots to ends to evenly distribute the formula. Let sit for 10 minutes, then rinse. Use twice a month to maintain results.
