For the Grey-Haired Ones

Dear Beauty Queen: I see more multidimensional color shades in the hair are still in style for fall. What about grey hair? I have brown hair with more and more silver grey. I get lots of compliments on the grey but would like to add some streaks of multicolor. What do you suggest?

Beauty Queen: For this question, I consulted my friend and senior colorist/trainer for the Frédéric Fekkai salons, Brian Keller. He says multidimensional color is the way of hair color and colorists are going for more natural looking tones. “We’re using grey hair as part of the hair color,” he explains. “Greys are being blended and not always covered.” The amount of grey that you have dictates how multidimensional color is worked in. Brian says, “I do low lighting on women with 50 percent or more grey hair,” while semi- or demi-permanent color is best for those with less than 50 percent grey.
