The appearance of grey hair is a fact of life for many men as they pass through middle age. The texture of the hair can also change with greyness, with the grey hairs often having a stiffer feel to them than others. While many men continue to look smart with grey hair, attention to grooming can overcome any negative effects of a change of hair colour.

Keep it short

Keeping your hair short can minimise the visual impact of grey hair and looks smart on middle-aged men. The David Beckham style “Buzz Cut” is popular and can be matched with a smartly trimmed beard to give a stylish, masculine look.

Caesar cut

The “Caesar cut” is an option for men who combine grey hair with a receding hairline. It is a short cut but slightly tousled on top to cover up the receding hairline. George Clooney has sported this type of hairstyle. For men developing a bald spot on top of their crown, a medium length style with a razor cut can provide a natural cover for baldness. Harrison Ford is a grey-haired film star who was used this style.

Faux hawk

Grey hair can give men a distinguished look and carry an aura of power. The faux hawk hairstyle with hair short at the back and sides, and longer at the top can suit grey hair. It is a modern look which can be spiked up or left to fall down over the forehead.

Facial shape

As with any hair colour, it is advisable to style hair taking into account facial shape. Men with round faces suit square cut styles such as a flat top. Grey haired men can still go for a trendy short and spiky style if they have narrower faces. Sting for example often sports a spiky hairstyle with his greying hair.
