Bob It

Gray naturals can have fun in this playful bob hairstyle. Be sure to include a weekly hair mask in your routine to allow the hair to soak up any moisture it loses from environmental stressors (humidity, perspiration, dirt, and oil).

Supermodel Blowout

Whether off-duty or on the runway, supermodels possess the ultimate cool-girl aesthetic. Channel that same energy with this iconic blowout. Start with a heat protective spray to avoid any damage and blow dry with a round brush for bounce.

Playful Pixie

For the spirited, no style matches better than the combination of an undercut (a buzzed section of the hair that keeps the weight off) and an edgy yet playful pixie. To keep this cut looking sharp, be sure to trim the sides every few weeks.

Let your curls roam free in this layered curly cut where movement and bounce reign supreme. For daily styling, rake in a texturizing spray and scrunch hair to encourage the curl.

Throwback Flip

Flipped ends can help elevate a look by adding dimension and layers. Originating in the ‘60s, the style is just as popular today as it was then. For a smooth finish, lock in the perfect flip with a 1 ¼” curling iron.

Grown-Out Pixie

For those working on hang time, growing-out your pixie is a great way to start. Part it in the middle or side, and let your spirals and coils enjoy the way they naturally spring.

Farrah Fawcett Chic

Coined as Farrah Fawcett hair, feathered layers, voluminous movement, and larger-than-life bangs has been trending on TikTok for nearly two years now. And it doesn’t discriminate against gray natural hair. The style creates a softness to the whole look.

Protect It

Whether you opt for gray-colored braiding hair or faux locs, braids are a great protective style to yield natural hair from any manipulation, tension, and environmental elements.

Slickback Pony

For a sophisticated look, slick back your hair into a pony with a healthy amount of pomade. And if you’ve gone gray for an aesthetic choice, on wash day, remember to use a color-safe shampoo and conditioner that will add moisture back into your hair.

Afro Frenzy

Step into your power with a gray natural afro. This hairstyle, parted to the side, allows your hair to roam as it pleases. As curls are quick to lack moisture, be sure to keep a spray bottle and leave-in conditioner in your product arsenal for daily hydration.
