Jeremy Strong: Short Grey Hair With Side Parting

4.0 4 Star

Otherwise known as Kendall from Succession, actor Jeremy Strong’s short, grey hair with side parting is a big change from the jet black crew cut beloved of his character. (He dyes his hair when filming).

And MFH thinks his complexion looks way healthier with his natural tones.

Another win for Team Grey!


MFH says

He might not be recognisable without his character’s dyed jet black crew cut. But Succession actor Jeremy Strong’s short grey hair with side parting is an altogether more flattering look.

In fact, it lends him a certain air of gravitas. Which is in keeping with the critical acclaim and acting awards being piled on him.

It’s also completely different to his character, Kendall, who is in turns arrogant, vulnerable, cold-hearted but uncool, broken and prone to embarrassing outbursts.

And Jeremy Strong’s classic hairstyle showcasing his natural colour is yet another reason we’re totally behind the Greynaissance.

Time to throw the box dyes away?
