Hi Jane! I'm one of the many women who has decided to go natural gray with her hair color during the pandemic, and I'm loving it! However, I noticed that the colors I did wear don't all work with the new hair color. What colors (clothes/makeup) are best for someone with silver/gray hair? What should we avoid? Thank you!
Jane's answer: Mary, what a great question! And how good to hear you're loving your new, natural hair color! Think of all the time and money you'll save too ;D
However, as you've noticed, it does mean that not all the colors you used to wear will work with your new hair color. So, there is perhaps an initial investment in some new clothes. It will depend how different your current coloring is.
