Gray is Chic. Gray Wigs are all the Rage.

Gray wigs have gone chic and fashion writers have declared grey hair to be the height of style for all demographics. Some have even gone so far as to call it the new blonde. 

Grey Hair Fashion

The original trend can be attributed to fashion designer Jean-Paul Gaultier who stormed the catwalks of Paris Fashion Week in 2015 with silver haired models. Since then Grey has broadened its appeal for young people changing their hair color and the older generation eager to embrace their natural grays. Additions of blues, reds and purples have added a contemporary and lively note to a hair color that was previously hidden or concealed. 

Grey Wigs Are for Every Age

As grey expands its appeal into the younger generations, the manufactures have released color shades that are more brash and fashionable than the traditional wigs with grey hair.

What started out as just one to two color options in grey a few years ago has expanded broadly to 5-10 grey colors for each manufacturer.  Human Hair offerings are still quite small but here are a few examples: 

  • The Ellen Wille Prime Power collection of blended human hair/synthetic styles offers a selection of predominantly short grey wigs that promise the styling advantages of synthetic fiber with the look and feel of human hair.
  • Raquel Welch’s Tru2Life collection curates approximately 20 Heat Defiant gray wigs including popular styles such as Advanced French, Classic Cut and Editor’s Pick. 
  • Rene of Paris, Noriko and Amore’s offering is largely centered around short gray wigs with plenty of bob and pixie styles to choose from.
