Most people start generally start getting their first grey hair in early forties or late thirties. Changes in hair color are the result of pigmentation which occurs due to the presence of chemicals like melanin. Generally it is said more the melanin darker the hair. Grey hair can also appear as early as in the teens as well as early twenties.

It is hard to tell when a certain person starts to get grey hair, whether it is due to age or genetically passed to them. Changes in hair color start to occur usually by the regular decrease of pigmentation which occurs when melanin ceases to be produced in the root of the hair.
