Grey hair is hot right now for the younger generation. Somehow that doesn’t feel right to me. Being a recently transitioned to grey hair woman, I resent the fact that girls in their twenties are spending hours and hours in the hair salon, trying to get what nature has given me naturally. Whom am I kidding? I think it is awesome! For once, I am on the easy side of being in fashion and maybe, I dare say, trendy.


However, one of the things I have noticed after letting my hair go gray was that none of my old wardrobe seemed to look good on me anymore. I reached out to Jill Kirsh, the colour guru, for some help and tips. And I thought I would share them with you today.

But before we begin, let me introduce you and tell you a bit about Jill Kirsh.

Jill Kirsh is a color expert and Hollywood’s Guru of Hue. Her unique color system has been the talk of the fashion world for the past ten years. She’s been featured several times in InStyle Magazine, Life & Style Weekly, Inc.magazine, E!News Online, Backstage, RedBook, the Los Angeles Times and on every major network and numerous local news affiliates including HGTV, Hallmark and Soapnet, plus myriad websites like AOL, BeautyRiot, Shopafrolic and more. She was named Best Color Consultant in the Best of LA issue of Los Angeles magazine and is frequently called upon by Red Carpet celebs, Grammy winning musicians and titans of business for color coaching.

These grey hairstyles on men and women are fashionable and trendy.

5 Fashion Mistakes That Make Grey Hair Look Dull

1. Don’t wear mustard, olive green, camel and rust. Instead wear mint, lavender, rose red and taupe.
2. Don’t wear yellow gold jewelry. Wear white gold, silver and platinum.
3. Don’t wear amber, coral or yellow topaz. Your jewels are amethyst, garnet & rose quartz.
4. Don’t wear tortoise shell, tan or bronze eyeglass frames. Opt for burgundy, steel blue or pewter.
5. Don’t accessorize with cinnamon brown handbags, boots, wallets & belts. Go for wine coloured leather accessories.
