How to cover up grey hair

Whether you're in between salon visits or have just started to notice a few stray hairs pop up, here are five ways to cover up grey hair.1. Dry shampooOil flattens your hair and accentuates any colour irregularities at the root. If you don't want to wash your hair every day, try a good dry shampoo like Batiste, £2.99 – it will absorb excess grease and help to camouflage any grey hairs.2. VolumeCreating volume at the roots of your hair helps to mask stray greys so give yourself a big bouncy blowdry using Richard Ward's Couture Hair Volumiser Root Booster, £19. 

3. Mix up your parting

If you always part your hair in the same place, the area flattens and greys become more visible. Switch it up by changing it to the other side of your head and keep the parting slightly messy.

4. DIY

For a more permanent solution, you can buy home kits that will colour the roots.
