If your hair is less than 25% grey, we’d recommend trying highlights over a full dye job. Don’t consider tackling it alone, head to the salon where a professional colourist will know exactly where to deposit colour (highlights or lowlights), for a natural-looking shift.

Fear not gents, there’ll be no 90s frosted tips round these parts, just a seamless blend between your new-arrival greys and your professional colour.
