Graying clients come in all the time wanting to hide their grays. Instead of covering it, help them embrace it by giving them a look that's both stylish and refined.

This client was tired of her blonde going brassy as she attempted to hide her grays. Her colorist transformed her by incorporating both blonde and gray to ease the hair color stress. The result? Sophistication!

This client was a new refferal for Kimberly Patten (Insta: @kimberhairco), so she was excited to show her what she could do. "My client got a LOT of foils," she said. "I used Redken Flashlift w/20 vol and Redken Fusion 3N w/10 vol. I lifted her as light as her hair would safely allow, and toned her at the bowl with Redken Shades EQ 09V/09P and a splash of 01B."

The finished look features gray blending with pieces of her natural blonde woven throughout.
