1. Gray Hair French Twist

Nothing says "elegant" more than a beautiful French Twist hairstyle. A perfect way to add class to your look.

And so quick and easy to do with only one comfy pair of "Grace" Upins by Lilla Rose....ditch all those bobby pins for a secure and comfortable hold that lasts all day!

2. Medium Length Gray Hair
Rolled Half-Up (Half-up twist)

Gray hair is no reason to not keep your girlish look! Keep your youthful bloom with this carefree Lilla Rose Sunflower Flexi in a fun rolled Half-up.

5. Salt-and-Pepper Hair
French Braid Ponytail

I love how the French Braid Pony highlights the beautiful shades of growing out gray, salt and pepper hair, or if you are transitioning to gray. It is much better than an expensive salon hairdo!

Shown in the cute owl "Hoot" Flexi by Lilla Rose, which is currently retired, but check out "Night Owl" which is a lovely owl hair clip in black aurora borealis, which actually changes color in the light, and appears as if it were in deep blues and other stunning colors of the rainbow.

Also, check out the website for dozens of other beautiful styles...Lilla Rose comes out with new ones several times a month.
