When referring to a person's hair collectively, the singular may be used with no article, as is common in English: Sie hat graues Haar "She has grey hair". However in German, unlike English, it is more common to use the plural: Sie hat graue Haare. When referring to an individual hair, the indefinite article is used: Sie hat ein graues Haar "She has a (single) grey hair".
