Meet Michelle

Michelle’s journey to grey came about with feeling confident with where she is at and embracing age with grace.

She is a real nature girl, who loves long hair. Watch Michelle discuss her grey hair journey in this video.

We applied a toner to Michelle’s hair to enhance the brightness of the natural colours.

Grey hair without a strong hairstyle definitely can age you.
Long hair especially requires a strong direction with the haircut.  We cut a lot of shape into Michelle’s hair, without taking away the length or creating excessive layers.  The result is a haircut with structure that supports styling to reflect softness and looseness which is very much her personality.

We blow dried and tonged Michelle’s hair to frame her face softly and stylishly.

Jules Peacocke, Director of Lily Jackson Hair & Makeup says “Often nature has a great plan, and sometimes it just needs a bit of re direction.”

Meet Julie

Julie is one of Jules Peacocke’s clients. Jules, Director of Lily Jackson Hair & Makeup, has always admired Julie for her unique look and style and has enjoyed creating this versatile look.

Julie found her journey to grey hair empowering as she talks about confronting and embracing who she is in this video.

Every woman has their own sense of presence and it is clear that Julie understands and embraces her personal style. The colour and cut support and enhance Julie’s facial features.

With Julie’s colour being completely natural, we focussed on the haircut – a graduated bob.  Going grey requires more attention to the haircut which comes down to the stylist getting to know their client and their story. While a graduated bob is a “simple haircut” it requires a significant amount of expertise and skill to execute correctly.

Now the word “bob” might strike fear in the hearts of many women because poorly executed, it can add years to the appearance of the individual and tells nothing of the uniqueness of the person.

Julie’s hairstyle showcases grey hair that does not age the individual, that can be styled to reflect a fun, elegant and/or edgy look that speaks uniqueness, individuality and empowerment.

All great haircuts look better when blowdried and styled.

In the images above you can see how Julie’s hair has been styled differently: swept up with a long side part that imparts freshness or a sultry blowdry over the eyes – both styles using Oribe Grandiose Hair Plumping Mousse and Oribe Superfine Hairspray.
