Will grey hair suit me?

Metallic Steel Grey hair will suit anyone with a cool skin tone.  If you have pink undertones to the skin, grey hues are going to look amazing.   Andrew’s handy tone indicator- if you mainly suit silver jewellery you are a cool skin tone!  Whatever colour your eyes, you need not worry…..grey will look fabulous!

Will switching my hair to grey cause any damage?

Lightening your hair to these tones can weaken it.  Your hairdresser must do a full consultation and ensure that your hair is strong enough to with stand the lightening process.  At Andrew Smith, we would add milk_shake Safe Lightening Complex to the colour in order to ensure that the hair remains healthy and full of vitality throughout the lifting process.
