Get Joan's Look
Joan's gray had developed a yellow tinge, so colorist Rick Wellman of New York City's Sahag Workshop suggested a shampoo and conditioner with a slight purple or blue pigment, such as Clairol Professional Shimmer Lights Shampoo and Conditioner. ("Purple neutralizes brassiness," Rick says.) He also recommended a chic cut with a distinctive shape "because gray hair can easily look unkempt." And consider a glaze with a hint of violet, which will counteract any yellow and add shine.

Sonia opted for a wash of pale pink on Joan's lids (we like Shiseido Shimmering Cream Eye Color in Mousseline) and a touch of petal pink blush (try Nars Dual-Intensity Blush in Adoration). To highlight Joan's beautiful mouth, Sonia chose her Sonia Kashuk Lustrous Shine Lip Crayon in Orchid. "It's bright, but not severe," she says.
