Gray Ombré

So I don't know whether this is intentional or just her growing out color, but I think it's a really cute style, like the opposite of ombré where usually the ends get lighter, here they get darker.

Looks very stylish and would be easy to grow out if you get tired of it. Also thinking of really bright colors on the ends like berry pinks and turquoise. Fun!

    That does look cute! I can't tell if it's intentional or not either...

    I always think when I get grey hair I can finally do all the colors I want without worrying about bleach damage. :p

    That's Sharon Delaney. She has a gray board on FB and a youtube channel. Pretty sure that was during grow out thought it may have been blended with lowlights. She's a make up artist.

    That photo was taken during her transition/ grow out and is what my mom's hair looks like at the moment. People ask her how she does that, lol, and she gets a lot of compliments on it.
