I have never had lowlights, anyone had them?
Bare, Low lights will add more dark tones, is that what you want?
Try googling images of - grey hair with lowlights. See if you can find an image that approaches what you are looking for.
If you find something you like, consider the eyebrow color in the photo as well- that it is similar to your own.

Another option is to add a sprinkle of highlights- a FEW very very lightly sectioned strands. Some lighter strands will add sparkle and may be enough to get you through.
Chances are your grey will evolve more brightly with time. Mine has.

Silver is the new trendy color for short and medium hair!

Bare this site has some absolutely gorgeous looks for grey hair, but the models are not very mature, so that may make a difference as to how they look so good.

I went from almost black hair to platinum very quickly. Both sides of my family go white, not grey. I was in my early 40s and I was horrified so I went through all the streaking, low lights, hi lights, you name it, until I finally became comfortable in my own skin and accepted my hair and my "look" for what it is. I do get a really good stylish cut and my clothing leans towards modern youngish looking clothes. I also changed my makeup to a much lighter skin tone with emphasis on the eyes. My eyebrows stayed black so that helps.

Going grey is difficult because it really does signal age, but you cannot fight age, so use all the improvements in hair color and cosmetics to make the best of what you are.

I actually have people in my hair salon who ask for my hair color and my adorable hair stylist always says "this does not come out of a bottle, it is a gift from God".

I want to add some pizazz to my steel-colored hair, maybe auburn lowlights?
But that might look really bizarre on "salt and pepper" hair. I need advice re color.
Eyebrows -- some women have eyebrows?
Perhaps I'll consider microblading when I return to TV. I heard about it on another thread. Do you know anything about it?

Nothing better than silver hair on a young face. Unfortunately that ship sailed for me many moons ago.
I think you live close to me. Can you share the name of your hair stylist?

I am sitting here looking at a magazine ad for L'Oréal pure clay masks. There are different kinds that are different colors. (One with seaweed. One with charcoal. One with eucalyptus. One with red algae. The woman in the ad has all the colors smeared on her face. Gotta luv marketing.) These look interesting. I like the blue one. Has anybody tried any of them?

I would like to find a relatively inexpensive facial mask to use at home. Any suggestions?
