Eyebrow Colour for Grey Hair

When hair becomes grey, you may need to adjust your eyebrow routine to better complement the tones in grey hair. Silvery greys are naturally cool toned, so a cool-toned eyebrow colour like taupe or ash brown can look more flattering than more warm-toned options. I recommend my Brow Cheat and Brow Lift eyebrow pencils in Taupe for fair skin tones; Medium Brown for medium skin tones; and Natural Black for deep skin tones to create a natural-looking eyebrow look for grey hair.

You may also notice that as your hair greys, grey hairs start to emerge in your eyebrows, too. To tint the grey hairs in your brows, you can use a brow gel like Legendary Brows to coat your brow hairs with a flattering shade that helps to disguise the appearance of greys.
