Sometimes, it’s all about embracing your imperfections even if those imperfections happen to be dreaded greys! But luckily for those of us who have been grey spotting since high school, grey hair is hotter than ever! Especially if you happen to be in the Atlanta, GA area. Grey hair is majorly trending at our Atlanta TONI&GUY Hairdressing Academy and we are all about this muted colour.


For the past couple of months, the academy has been seeing a surge of requests for pastel grey tresses in all coverages and techniques.

“Our current salon trend has our young generation fast forwarding their hair colour 50 years!,” said Atlanta team member Mariam Camara. “Our students have experimented from all over colours, grey baliages and ombrés!”


If you take a look at Instagram and you scroll through you're feed you're bound to stumble upon a variety of grey lock looks. Ombré grey has really been trending lately and it's one of the coolest, most dimensional ways to own the hue.

So whether you’ve been greying since your teens or you’re just a fan of the hazy hue, this is your time to play it up with silvery locks!

Unlike the au naturel colour, dyed grey comes with its fair share of required maintenance. So, if you want to keep your grey fresh and bright, you’re going to have to put in the work.


Fortunately for you (and us!), 2015 BTC Editor’s Choice Pro Colour Award winner Moe Foster was kind enough to drop some colour maintenance wisdom on us to help keep your colour looking its best between trips to the salon.


Follow Moe’s tips below to help your colour last:

  • Shampoo once a week with cold water and colour protecting shampoo and conditioner like Catwalk Fashionista Violet Conditioner.
  • Dry shampoo is your best friend to get you through.
  • Stay out of the pool! Or if you must dive in, use a shower cap.
  • Most important step: Schedule lightener or toning touch ups every 4 weeks to decrease banding and unwanted tones.
  • Be kind to your hair! A proper product regimen is key to beautiful and bright hair!


From metallic silver, slate, charcoal or not-quite-white grey, there's a whole muted monochromatic rainbow to help you pick a shade that's right for you and turn your grey hair dreams into a smoky on trend reality!
