Transitioning into Gray Color Wigs

Transitioning into gray color wigs might seem simple and straightforward, but it's not. Switching from brown, blonde, or any other color to gray is a significant change. If you want to transition to gray wigs discretely, the key is to start with a little bit of gray and stick with undertones that best suit you.

If you are thinking of switching to the gray wigs, we got you covered! We've listed our favorite gray colors for our top 3 selling brands: Jon Renau, Raquel Welch and Ellen Wille



For brunettes, it's best to go for the darker gray shades when choosing gray color wigs. However, the rule of incorporating a small amount of gray into your wig will stay the same.

  • 38 | Milkshake: Is a combination of Medium Brown and 35% Light Gray
