And the hair color of the year award goes to...Smokey Grey!

Smokey Grey may not sound like a winter winner, but, trust us, it's all the rage – especially infused with blonde reflections to lighten up the mood.

Go Smoky


And the prize for the most successful color of the year goes to Smokey Grey! Congratulations – from the depths of oblivion, the one-time 'non-grata' color has turned the tide and become a must have! Grey has been all over the catwalks and all over the sidewalks for a couple of seasons now so there's no doubt it's gone mainstream. But, how can you make sure Smokey Grey is right for you? Easy peasy – pop into your L'Oréal Professional salon for a consultation to see how dark or how light you should go, depending on skin tone, mood and taste! Or, if stepping out in to the cold air puts you off, why not use L'Oréal Profesionnel's Style My Hair application , to see virtually if the smoky gray color would suit you.

Get the Grey

Still not sure how to get away with it? This guest at Gucci was seen rocking Smokey Grey locks in Milan with bright, clashing colors to add a little oomph and contrast. But, even better, she kept her cut classic. By mixing the original side swept shoulder length bob – a traditional safe bet – with a cutting-edge color she keeps it cool and contemporary. Smart cookie.

Keep it fresh

Colouring can take its toll on your hair, so don't forget to treat it to the odd pampering session with L'Oréal Professionnel Mythic Oil Masque to infuse tired, damaged hair with renewed life. No time to spare? L'Oréal Professionnel's Pro Fiber Recover hair care leave-in formula is ideal for those who can't spare the masque 'me-time'.
