This year, the hair industry has been paving the way for new norms in color shades — shades of gray, that is. For decades, people scrambled to salons to touch up the stray gray strands that peeked through their dye jobs — but no more! Today, folks are flocking to stylists and asking for gray.
Since the Netflix hit Orange is the New Black premiered its third season, Dascha Polanco, who plays Daya, has been seen sporting shiny silver tresses. Other celebs who’ve rocked these metallic strands include Kylie Jenner, Zosia Mamet, Pink, and Kelly Osbourne.

Shades can vary from salt-and-pepper gray to dusty silver. Just make sure to keep your hair hydrated and conditioned to maintain any color that isn't your natural one.
