Out of all of the rainbow hair colors to choose from, gray hair color remains a favorite. There’s something magical about the smoky hair color. But, the challenge is getting the hair color right so it has a cool smoky vibe instead of looking dull. Some gray hair colors can end up being too blue, too flat or even too yellow. Manic Panic is here to solve that problem by launching the Alien Grey Classic High Voltage Semi-Permanent Hair Color Cream ($13.99).

Manic Panic announced the otherworldly launch on Instagram, explaining that it had received a lot of demand from people for a true gray hair color. The Manic Panic website describes Alien Grey as a “distinctly deep, true slate gray inspired by otherworldly visitors of the same name, this true grey is a real paradox in fantasy color.” That’s right, it’s really inspired by alien’s. What’s more, the shade is a mix of lavender and grey without becoming too blue or yellow.

If you want to see what it looks like on hair, Manic Panic showed off the smoky gray color on Instagram. Note that the Alien Grey was applied on top of hair that was lightened to a level 10 (platinum blonde).
