For girls who have darker hair, going grey can be especially difficult to handle. With blondes, gray hairs tend to appear more natural, whereas when you are a brunette they are more striking. Hence, for a more youthful look and an easier transition to gray/white hair, have a mixture of highlights and lowlights added to your dark hairstyle. That way, you will perfectly camouflage your grays and appear younger!

Look young with silver feathered bob hair

Ask your stylist for layering that complements the shape of your face and will help you achieve natural hair volume. Moderate styling should be used with this hairstyle. Blow-dry until the hair is about 70% dry, then use a round brush to complete. Finish with a texture spray to hold the hair in place.
