. Your base cannot be any darker than a light blonde if you want this pale nuance of grey. Redheads will really struggle to nail this look’.
Remember that although coloring your hair grey might not be risky if done by a stylist, it will take a few salon appointments to achieve your desired color. ‘Getting the perfect, on-trend grey shade takes time, and can only be done properly in salons
. Trying this DIY look at home could go horribly wrong as you firstly need to strip your existing color, then apply a product to help develop your new color. If you don’t get the right formula and measurements, you could end up with dark grey or even a green-ish tint which isn’t a good look on anybody’.

effect which was fashionable at the time. Another thing to consider is that the grey color will appear more distinctive on short hair’. Our advice:
Make sure you can commit to heading back to your salon for follow-up appointments. Avoid this shade if your hair is long, as the process will be very time-consuming. The Colour Therapy range
