Confidence is key; Clooney Club still embraces the silver fox. We just don’t want you to age before you feel like it. Hair maintenance and a grooming regime are essential to retaining a good look and wearing it well, so that before you walk out the door in the morning you have a little pep in your step. Although our Clooney Colour product can achieve great results for users that have more than 50% grey hair, we designed the product to work up to a maximum of 50% greys. Below are some tips from the lads at Dmarge for those of you that have decided to give up the goose and embrace your grey hair.
Sure, the appearance of greying can indicate that you’re moving on in life, but more importantly, it’s a symbol of one’s wiseness and tenacity in this big bad world; it shows that you’ve been around to weather the worst, and you’re now at the top of your game. Your next step? Owning it.
Things You Need To Know
Contrary to general belief, silver foxes can still attain that edgy dapper look, given they treat their grey matter with respect.
As grey hair becomes more prominent on a man’s head, the appearance of thinning will also follow suit. This is why it’s essential you pick the right hairstyle that will accentuate the grey rather than highlight parts of your scalp (sorry cornrows). Consider the importance of the varying tones and many shades of grey.
If you’re predominantly pale skinned, use a bit of grey coverage product such as gentle foam colours. This will help break up the stark ‘white-on-white’ look. Those with a darker skin complexion should limit the grey coverage colour treatments as you’re trying to give the grey a more healthy transitional tone as opposed to looking like Geoffrey Edelsten.
Secondly, be sure to use a decent shampoo and conditioner. Choosing the cheaper alternatives will often dry out your hair after every wash and deprive it of the good stuff to keep it looking natural. Regular appointments with your hairstylist is also a must for silver foxes. Ever seen Tom Hanks in Cast Away? Ain’t nobody got time for that. Keep it styled and the cool grey will repay.
Nothing shines brighter than the grey except for confidence. So embrace the inner-silver fox and wear the types of clothes that will give you a lasting sense of style. Going in for the dapper look is your best bet here and leaving your drop-crotch pants behind is probably the wiser option.
