Gray and silver hair color isn’t going away in 2016. It’s just getting a bit more refined. Enough people tested and experimented with all sorts of gray shades over the last couple years that the color has sort of grown up. One of the best newer colors to come out of that experimentation is a stunning gun-metal gray shade that’s subtle and gorgeous. To get to a true gunmetal or charcoal gray you have to first make sure you get all the color out of your hair, no yellow tones, completely desaturated to get a beautiful monochrome gray. Check out the gallery of gunmetal gray hairstyles for your inspiration or bring them to your hairdresser to make sure you get what you really want. And do it soon, these colors are just going to keep trending up as the year progresses.
Above is proof that you don’t need long hair to have gorgeous gunmetal gray hair. But getting various shades of gray all over looks amazing if you do have long hair.
Long dyed gray hair in messy braided styles is amazing too.
A gray balayage or charcoal to silver ombre coloring techniques are great if you don’t have the time for regular maintenance of your roots because your hair can grow out a bunch before it really looks any different.
