FOR years we girls have been battling the grey, but could all that be set to change? Well probably not. But according to the hairdressers on the ground, we are seeing a noticeable shift in attitude to the shade. After all there's no reason why grey can't look good too.

"We had a lady in recently who wanted a grey flash," says Janice Auton of Teesside-based Poppys Hairdressing.

She was just one of the many women learning to "celebrate the grey".

It doesn't have to mean a full head of silver, Janice says there are more subtle ways to work it into your style.

"I tend to tone it down in the summer and then go gradually warmer. I tend to get redder as it gets closer to winter and the nights get darker."

AMIE LAWSON, 20, of Stockton, has opted for one of the season's key looks, the undercut - a longer style that's shaved at the sides in a caramel blonde shade.

"I'm naturally a lot darker so have never been this light before, but I've enjoyed playing about with my hair a bit more lately."
