Grey Coverage

As time passes, we find that our perspectives, bodies, and even hair change. One day we all inevitably find that first grey hair! Thanks to great stylists who have dedicated their lives to learning the art of grey coverage, we no longer have to stress going grey. Did you know that grey hair occurs when melanin production within the hair follicle reduces? Within each strand, melanocytes are responsible for producing melanin, which helps with vibrant hair color. It turns out that ‘grey’ hair is actually white hair! We see the hair as grey because of the color of our scalp. For this reason, everyone who has grey hair has different shades and textures, resulting in grey coverage to be more challenging than other color changes.

At Salon Madeleine, our colorists have been trained to offer the best solution for grey coverage. Whether your hair is 10%, 25%, 50%, or 100% grey, our colorists can help you achieve a hair color that you’ll love. Many of our clients love our grey coverage work and find themselves coming back every four to six weeks to refresh their grey coverage.

What is Grey Coverage?

Grey coverage is exactly as it sounds, covering grey hair, and as we learned from the section above, grey hair isn’t grey hair, which makes for a tricky hair coloring experience. When done at home, this process can be messy, and you may not get the results you expected. Not achieving the results at home can come from a variety of factors like:

  • the color of your hair
  • the color you want your hair to match
  • the texture of your hair
  • how you applied the hair color
  • if your water is filtered
  • if you chose permanent or semi-permanent hair color 
  • and many other factors. 

That’s why complete coverage is hard to achieve at home.

How Long Should Grey Coverage Last?

One of our more frequently asked questions is, how long should grey coverage last? We recommend coming in every four to six weeks for fresh look. Everyone’s hair grows and takes color differently. Our colorist at Salon Madeline can assess your hair and give you a recommendation based on color, texture, length, and a few questions. 

How To Get The Best Grey Coverage

Since this process is one of the most challenging hair colors to color, we are often asked how to get the best grey coverage. Grey hair is typically seen as ‘color resistant,’ and it is hard to achieve a salon look when done at home. That’s why the first thing we recommend is going to a certified colorist for your grey coverage needs. A colorist can whip together the perfect color for your seamless look. They will be able to section your hair and apply the appropriate amount of dye with the ideal technique. Your colorist will also have suggestions for different color applications and dyes, depending on your commitment to coming in for appointments. All of these factors make for the best grey coverage that will have your hair looking fresh and grey free. When you go to an Aveda colorist at Salon Madeline, they will assess your hair, talk you through expectations, understand what you are going for, and know how to mix colors and if you need a lift. Our colorists can provide our clients with for: 

  • black hair
  • brunettes
  • blondes
  • red hair
