For this brand new granny hair trend, if you are going grey naturally, all you need to do is simply slowly reduce the amount of colour as well as elegantly let the grey hair to start to appear. If you are not going grey naturally, or if you want to enhance the look and complement the grey tones, you could add on lighter ash highlights to make it stand out more and look more elegant.
However, stylists suggest that if you were to don the granny hairstyle, you should make sure that you have a great haircut, otherwise it will not look good, and look as if though you just don’t bother to take care of yourself. Stylists also suggest the use of silver shampoo, as it is able to help brighten the hair as well as remove unflattering yellow tones that could come with grey hair. Since the locks are bright in colour, it could absorb pollution such as cigarette smoke, and it will cause the hair to look dulled down and tarnished.
While the actual granny style should be a full head of silver or grey locks, some girls are experimenting with the look, by adding in highlights of other striking colours in to add in some flair ad personality.

It all started from one fashion show.
