Dyeing hair grey a growing trend for Sask. women
Silvery hues becoming a popular choice among younger customers, stylist says
While many women conceal their grey hair with colour, some younger women are embracing silver as a fashion choice.
The trend has now made its way to salons in Saskatchewan.
Terry Swan, a hair stylist in Saskatoon, said silver is what pink and blue have been in the past.
While it may be trendy, Swan said it comes with a cost — it's time consuming.
First the hair first has to be bleached white, then colour is added to make it look grey. She noted that it's hard to do with long hair, and doesn't suit some skin tones.
'I mean, it's just a matter of time whether it's artificial or not.' - Sara Armstrong, Regina woman
Sara Armstrong of Regina chose to go grey because she believes it works well with her skin.
"Cool tones look better on me than those golden blondes," said Armstrong.
Her natural hair is an ash colour, and she started playing with a silvery, lavender hue several years ago, by leaving in purple conditioner. But she has decided to go more fully grey.
"Grey hair is something that everyone in my family has already gotten. Like very young, everyone goes grey. I mean, it's just a matter of time whether it's artificial or not," said Armstrong.
"My grandpa has this beautiful full head of hair, and it's just white as snow, and I think it looks absolutely gorgeous."
