What colors look best on older ladies with grey or salt and pepper hair?
Dark rich tones like maroon, royal blue, forest green, gold or brown. I think any hair color will look good with black or white.
You're describing me! I like to wear red and bright pink.
Just not neons. I hate that on older people.
I also hate it when people wear a color that is nearly their skin tone, but that rule applies to anyone.
I am a neutral color person myself. Women with grey hair look stunning in grey from dove grey to the richest charcoal. I just happen to love the color grey in all its variations and nuances. Women with salt and pepper hair look best in neutral tones ranging from brightest white, stark white to the deepest black. I am not a colors person, preferring neutral tones. My favorite go to neutrals( I have salt and pepper hair) are whites, medium/deep greys, and of course, my perennial standby-BLACK. I find that I am the most comfortable and look my best wearing black.
Like the answers below neutral colors are good for older ladies with grey or salt and pepper hair. Especially nutmeg browns, beige, eggshell, yellows colors. Warm and deep colors are also good such as burgundy, burnt sienna, Cool colors are also great such as teal, violet, blues, and greens.
Basically what I am saying is that all colors are essentially good for grey or salt and pepper hair. Color is your friend!!! Though try not to get colors that wash out your skin or are too matchy for your hair color (such as grey hair and grey clothes will make you look like the wind)
Something that is in contrast to their skin tone. The most popular would be the darker shade of pink, maroon or blue.
Actually, grey looks stunning with gray hair, and if you add pearls to the dress---even on the dress itself, it's even better. Also, the grey doesn't have to be muted; It can be a shiny metallica color. Then you can add a pop of color on your feet!
It all depends on what goes for each day. The weather plays a part in dressing as well. I would go for red, or light blue, white or black
