“We find that too often the colour grey is disregarded and people are scared of going grey. So Roni and I set out to change that view. By the sole use of the colour grey, we have created a collection that shows how versatile the colour can be.”
– Symon May, colour specialist, The Chapel
‘Fade to Grey’ is the latest collection from The Chapel, and comes from a joint collaboration between cutting specialist Roni Chapman and colour specialist Symon May. Inspired by the social conventions faced by women when their hair turns grey, the duo set out to challenge the connotations surrounding grey, endeavouring to prove the true power of using the colour grey to make yourself stand out from the crowd at any age. The styling consists of techniques that range from hidden panels to faded undercuts to bold statements. The overarching message is that grey is for everyone, no matter your age or personal style.
