According to trichologist Madeleine Preston, most women who are in their 30s should see a few grey hairs here and there, but by the time they get into their 50s, about half of their scalp hairs turn grey. Like wrinkles, silver flocks are part of aging. And there is absolutely nothing wrong with them.

Celebrity colorist Jack Martin is also a firm believer of that. For the past couple of years, he has been on a mission to prove that grey never goes out of style: Martin has developed a technique that allows his clients to gradually ditch the dye. He also posts before-and-after pictures of these empowering transformations to show they look badass.

This is way more better

As Martin explained on his Instagram account, the process starts with using a color extractor to remove any remaining artificial color. While preserving the gray roots, he then bleaches the rest of the hair to prep it for the new color.

Next, the crucial part. Martin bases the new color on the hair's natural gray pattern. The clients even have to come in with three to four inches of their roots grown out, so he can analyze the natural coloring of their hair. He then re-creates the pattern on the entire hairdo.

"Some clients have salt and pepper mostly in the front and the back is darker, so I match that and add some darkness to it," Martin told Allure. And just like that, about ten hours later, the women leave his salon enjoying the blend of their natural hue.

The LA-based colorist, who has worked with Sharon Osbourne, Jane Fonda, and other well-known clients, explained to Insider that the coronavirus lockdown has "absolutely" led to even more women around the world deciding to go gray naturally.

"Now, many women have about four to five inches of a new regrowth so they've started to see how beautiful their gray is naturally," he said. "Being quarantined at home for three to four months, seeing how much gray hair they have and how beautiful their gray hair is, many women have changed their minds and decided that they want to go this way."

She looks absolutely stunning. The new hair color and style makes her look so chic and polished. It suits her perfectly. She looks younger, effortlessly elegant and so much more confident. I love this transformation.

That first pic, the way the hair is presented, is shocking. I've never so clearly seen the difference posed in that fashion.
