Best way to disguise Gray hair

My hair is Brown ish with a splattering of grays
I want to go blonder, cover gray, but not be at the salon every month.

What do you guys recommend?

Re: Best way to disguise Gray hair



It's going to be impossible going blonde from brown without a Professional doing it since your hair would need to be stripped to lighten it.....

You can have a hairdresser do it; but maybe not go as often. Stretch out your appointments as long as you can.

Otherwise, maybe consider Boxed and do it yourself and keep it on the light brown side without any blonde.

Re: Best way to disguise Gray hair

I get highlights done and it really hides the gray.
And I don't have to go every month.
I would say I have to go every 12 weeks or so- but I always stretch that....

I'm brunette and get blonde highlights to hide my grays. I am definitely not there every month. I can go several months between visits.

Same - highlights to hide the greys. Adds some blonde to my brunette, without a drastic change. And definitely don't need to go every month (Maybe I wait "too long" between visits, but I go 3-4 times per year at most - usually 3)

You can just tell your stylist you don't want anything too chunky. They pretty much know though.
I get high and low light's which gives nice dimension and keeps it from looking too blonde.
You can also just get a partial highlight which focuses only on your crown area, and the front around your face

Same. Except during COVID. I've gone once this entire year. Chat Icon But who sees me anyway?! And my hair is up half the time anyway.

If you want to go longer between visits, you can use the spray or powder to cover them up.
