50 Incredible Ways For Men To Rock Grey Hair

Perhaps you’re ageing gracefully (or ungracefully). Perhaps the genetics Gods have blessed you with a full head of grey hair in your 20s. Whichever distinguished category you fall into, we just want you to know that the grey hair shalt not be shunned.

Sure, the appearance of greying can indicate that you’re moving on in life, but more importantly, it’s a symbol of one’s wiseness and tenacity in this big bad world; it shows that you’ve been around to weather the worst and you’re now at the top of your game. Your next step? Owning it. Here are 50 epic ways to rock grey hair.

Things You Need To Know

Contrary to general belief, silver foxes can still attain that edgy dapper look, given they treat their grey matter with respect.

Hair Styling

If you’re predominantly pale-skinned, use a bit of grey coverage product such as gentle foam colours. This will help break up the stark ‘white-on-white’ look. Those with a darker skin complexion should limit the grey coverage colour treatments as you’re trying to give the grey a more healthy transitional tone as opposed to looking like Geoffrey Edelsten.


Secondly, be sure to use a decent shampoo and conditioner. Choosing the cheaper alternatives will often dry out your hair after every wash and deprive it of the good stuff to keep it looking natural. Regular appointments with your hairstylist is also a must for silver foxes. Ever seen Tom Hanks in Cast Away? Ain’t nobody got time for that. Keep it styled and the cool grey will repay.

Embrace It

Nothing shines brighter than the grey except for confidence, so embrace your inner-silver fox and wear complementary clothes that will give you a lasting sense of style. Going in for the dapper look is your best bet here and leaving your drop-crotch pants behind is probably the wiser option.

Cover It

If none of the above are your thing, then consider covering it. There are many products out there that you can use at home which will bring your original hair colour back. These colouring products have come a long way and offer a far more natural-looking finish than products of old.

Care for it differently

Your overall hair care routine should change once you go silver. Because like we said, it’s not just the colour that changes at this point, the texture is also different. Once you go grey, your hair becomes a lot more stiff and porous. These two factors can make hair very difficult to manage, especially when you’ve been used to the opposite all your life.

So, here’s what you need to do: Select products specifically designed to care for grey hair. If you can’t find any, make sure any shampoo you use is not only decent, but also mild and sulphate-free. Try to also add some hair oils or hair creams into the mix to give your hair some of the shine it has lost, but be careful not to overdo this. 

Once you start greying, we recommend that you even replace the pomades and gels with hair cream.

Finally, try as much as possible to avoid styling your hair with heat.
