Grey Ombré Hair Is The Fall Trend That Isn’t Just For The Adventurous


If you’re not one to jump on bandwagons, the latest hair trend might just force you to eat your words. Behold: Grey ombré hair.

The popularization of grey ombré hair kind of rides on the coattails of #GrannyHair, my personal favorite recent hair trend, as much for its inclusion of the word  ‘granny’ as its unique aesthetic. Remember #GrannyHair? There were probably makeup artists and hair gurus all over your Facebook and Instagram feeds around a year ago, flaunting a shade older women have been trying to camouflage for decades.

It’s a good look.

But as the style gods have decreed in their official Book of Trend Progressions, everything, at a certain point, must be ombréed. We ain’t mad about it! As BuzzFeed pointed out, the look is more ~goth mermaid~ than anything else and there’s never a bad thing to be said about mermaids, or grannies, or goth people, so. That’s what I’m preachin’.

Makes you wonder if all the #GrannyHair enthusiasts just let their roots grow out. That’s how I achieved my most perfect level of (non-granny) ombré. Pure laziness. But then you see pictures like this and you’re like, “Oh never mind this took someone like 7 hours to do.”

You can also throw some blues and purples in there, for ~dramatic effect~

Now you just have to finagle yourself a mermaid crown and you could rule the Instagram ocean as the queen of Mermaid Goth.
