More often than not, when we see a grey hair come out, our first urge is to pull it out. But now, things have changed. While grey or white hairs used to be looked at as signs of ageing and something that should be hidden, nowadays, more and more people are dyeing their locks a cool grey tone. If you want some hair inspiration or are just looking for a way to fall back in love with your grey locks, here are some cute short grey hairstyles that might even make you want to turn grey quicker!
1. Smokey Bob
Take the classic bob from preppy to edgy by wearing it in this amazing smokey-grey shade. This is just a few shades up from black, but the cool-toned look is a lot more unique than a brown hairstyle. This look will take some brave people to pull it off, but if you’re already turning grey, give this one a try.
For lovers of the warmer tones, a greyish blonde lob (long bob) might be the way to go. This look still looks really light and delicate, but adds a touch of edge with hints of grey. This is the perfect look for someone looking to slowly transition to a full-on grey hairstyle.
3. Grey Highlights
Rock this messy, bedhead look with grey highlights if you want to toughen up your overall appearance. Grey colours suit quite short styles because it makes the colour less overwhelming and heavy-looking.
4. Sleek Grey Waves
Are you a big fan of beachy waves? Make them look cool and sleek by opting for a light grey tone to your hair. This is such an easy look to rock yet it makes such a big impact — you’ll actually wish for your hair to turn grey quicker in order to wear this look!
5. Icy Crop
Are you a fan of the platinum blonde look? Then this icy grey shade might be the way to go! If you find your hair turning grey or even white, use it as an excuse to rock this super-short wavy bob and embrace your new cool ‘do.
6. Grey Balayage
Balayage is a technique that is somewhere between highlights and ombré, and looks super cool in ashy or grey tones. If you have fine hair, this could be a great way to achieve the same impact as grey hair without overloading your locks.
7. Faded Ombré
Move over colourful ombré, grey is here to stay! Opt for this sleek, straight lob next time you get a bit insecure about your grey hairs peeking through. This is one of the cute short grey hairstyles that is so trendy, it’ll make you want to turn grey quicker!
8. Almost Ashy
This hairstyle is slightly ashy but is still in the grey hairstyle family. If you don’t want something quite as cool toned, then go for this easy, messy lob. The tiny bit of warmth will help you avoid the corpse effect that some grey tones can give.
9. Warm Grey
If you’re quite blonde but notice some grey hairs peeking through, it might be time to make the switch to a warm grey tone all over. This short style is super cute and easy to style, and best of all, it’ll help you embrace those once-pesky grey hairs.
10. Grey Pixie
The easiest way to add some edge to greying hair is to have it cut into a shaggy pixie. While sometimes this might make you think of haircuts reserved for older generations, it can be quite easy to pull it off at any age. If Cara Delevingne rocks it, you know it’s cool.
