Gray hair is something many people worry about and when the time comes to do something about it, many don't know their options. Choosing the right colour and type of dye is important to keeping your hair healthy and and the style looking good. Furthermore, choosing the right blonde hair colour to go over your grey can be a delicate decision and should be chosen carefully.

Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Make sure you want to go blonde. If you had blonde hair as a child, then you will generally look good blonde. If not, think carefully about this choice, because your hair may not come out the way you want.

  2. 2

    Figure out your type of skin tone. There are two skin tone categories: warm and cool. Warm skin tones are are darker, from golden to dark, with brown eyes or dark eyes. Cool skin tones are lighter and fair, with blue or green eyes. Warm skin tones should be careful with this decision and have a professional do it for the best results. For cool skin tones, ash blonde works very well.

  3. 3

    Determine how much of your hair is grey. This will decide which type of dye to use. If your hair is 15 per cent grey or less, semi-permanent colour is best for your hair. Using a permanent dye in this situation could affect the feel of your hair and the quality of the dye job.

  4. 4

    Discuss it with your stylist. Your stylist will be able to offer advice and show you colour samples on a colour swatch in order for you to make the best decision.
