Stressing over how your grow-out looks is not going to do you any favours. “Know this: it’s a marathon, not a sprint,” says Rivera. If you get frustrated and turn to dye when you really want to focus on growing out grey hair, you’re just going to have to start all over again. “The temptation to cover up greys will only last for a short time. So focus on your goal and try to avoid going back to dye.”

One thing that may help? Look at pictures of celebs of all ages who look incredible with their naturally grey hair. Some examples? Andie MacDowell, Diane Keaton, Helen Mirren, Jamie Lee Curtis and Hilarie Burton. Also make sure to pull together your entire look with makeup, accessories and outfits that can help you look younger and stylish at any age.
