You’ve got a grey hair! Do you freak out? Or yank that sucker and move on? For a lot of people it’s a combination of both.

Plenty of people start getting grey hairs young, young enough to not feel the societal pressure to be ashamed of dreaded “signs of aging” breathing down their necks. And with the increase in hair color, there is an increase in women who go blissfully ignorant of grey hair as they’re really not sure what their natural hair color is anymore.

But, for some, it can be upsetting. New-York City’s Stylist Albert Amin often gets questions from his clients about how to hide greys most often from their friends with darker hair, for whom a grey is more obvious and more difficult to hide or pass off. When a quick yank is no longer a viable maintenance strategy, there are a few courses you can take if grey hair is just not something you’re ready to embrace.


RE YOU READY FOR GREY HAIR COVERAGE?Grey hairs come from a lack of melanin in the pigment of our hair. It is associated with age, but it can also be genetic or the result of natural chemical changes or exposure to environmental pollution. There’s no way to naturally increase melanin pigment, so it’s a game of hiding the grey if that’s your choice. We’ll work from the least intensive to most intensive methods.

When it comes to hair color, you basically have 3 options: highlighting, single-process color or double process. Here are a few tips to help you sort out the best option for your hair.

To Color or to Highlight, That’s the Question

If you have a great base hair tone, you’re better off with highlights. You don’t want to mess with nature; what you want to do is enhance it. If your base color washes out your skin tone or is “blah,” consider single-process color. Single-process color is cheaper than highlights.

Highlights look best when the stylist uses at least two different shades. Ask for more around your face, they can brighten your complexion.

“With highlights, your colorist should be using more than one color, not just bleach. Great highlights should be layered to produce tonal variations. There should be lights, mediums and darks to create depth and translucence in the hair. Highlighting should be like painting a masterpiece and you can’t do that with just one color,” says stylist Albert Amin at Albert Amin Salon of Upper East Side.

Keep in mind that due to root growth, all-over coloring will need to be touched up every four to eight weeks, while highlights can last up to two or three months. Ask your stylist about a gloss treatment following your color. Gloss boosts color and makes hair shinier.

You’re Going for Highlights, But Which Kind?

There are basically 4 types of highlights: basic foil highlights, balayage or “hair painting,” chunking or “piecing” and lowlights.

Foil highlights add strands of color to hair. You can get up to 5 different shades in hair for a more natural look.

Balayage, or “hair painting,” allows the stylist to add natural stripes of color to hair in large or smaller swaths. This is best for women with a great base color who want to go just a couple shades lighter. You won’t need to get roots touched up as much with baliage as you do foils.

Lowlighting allows the stylist to add darker shades to hair. This gives color more contrast and dimension.
