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. Coloring hair gray often can be damaging to the health of the hair. The process can also be complex and costly in a salon and wig manufacturers have launched grey and platinum wig collections onto the market provide as an easier solution.

Grey Wigs for Older Ladies

As older ladies seek out shades of grey that emulate their bio hair they are beginning to find a broader number of choices of grey that range from White (Color 60) to more darker shades with 25% Grey. 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 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. From the short tussled look to the sleek and smooth bob, grey wigs are now available and able to satisfy most style preferences.   In total the LA Wig Company offers over 220 Grey Wig styles from Jon Renau, Amore, Rene of Paris, Estetica Designs, Ellen Wille and Raquel Welch.

Gray Wigs for the Younger Generation

As gray 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. Raquel Welch’s Iced Granita and Palest Pearl shades have rapidly become bestselling colors and Rene of Paris, Amore and Noriko’s Illumina offers a fashion forward and contemporary option to an array of edgy styles like Vada, Tessa and Zion. In 2020, Jon Renau released the Arctic Collection made up of five novel colors that were variants of gray/silver. Flurry, a pewtery lilac; Frost, a pearly, barely blushing pink; Glacier, a bright, icy blue; Storm, a sharp silver; and Sleet, a luminescent platinum.
