A monochromatic look can be aging," says Jason Backe, a colorist at the Ted Gibson Salon in New York City. "If you look washed out, add deeper, richer tones: soft brown highlights for brunettes, golden tones for blondes." And whether you’re going lighter or letting your hair go all white, adjusting your makeup will make the look more flattering. "Lighter hair requires softer makeup," says Sonia Kashuk, founder of Sonia Kashuk Beauty. "Avoid dark lipsticks and black around the eyes. Go for a bright blush-shades of pink or coral-and nude, gray or purple on the eyes. Also, a navy eye pencil is fabulous with gray hair."
