Silver grey hair can be a pretty captivating hue. Keep your salt-and-pepper locks fresh with regular toner applications, moisturizing conditioner, and toning services in order to reduce brassiness.
Brunettes who want to try out lighter shades of silver hair may use temporary color solutions such as Colorista Spray 1-Day Colour in Grey to safely test this trend. Wash out with warm water after 24 hours – so try it safely now!
Slate gray looks fabulously stylish when layered and blow-dried into this chic style. It works particularly well for those with darker roots who can opt to let their roots grow out more freely while keeping their hair lighter overall.
Blondes with their hair dyed a silvery blonde can opt for an all-over silver dye. At the same time, brunettes will need to bleach or at least lower the tone of their natural color with lighteners before opting for silver-grey dyeing. This process will likely require multiple salon visits and using paraben-free, color-safe shampoo, and toner products to maintain this new hue.
Soft lavender-tinged grey hair color makes an eye-catching balayage choice, beautifully complimenting dark or platinum blonde strands. As a medium-intensity hue, this shade complements warm and cool skin undertones and blue eyes beautifully – its gentle hue makes it easier than other pastel colors to wear straight strands!
Silvery shag trends are making waves right now, and we couldn’t be happier! These luxurious yet playful locks boast elegantly wavy texture with cool tones for an eye-catching finish. If your strands are straight or undefined, add texture by applying texturizing products for more movement and definition.
Blondes tend to adopt silver hair colors more efficiently, especially if they choose one with subtle blue undertones and a pale gray hue. But brunettes will often require pre-lightening their locks before dyeing them with silver to prevent brassiness from occurring.
If you want something a bit bolder, teal can add warmth and bring out blue or green eyes in a natural way. Turquoise also works beautifully and pairs nicely with both cool and warm skin tones; brick red works particularly well on warm skin tones while drawing attention to hazel or blue eyes.
Natural Hair Color
If you need more time to dive in head first with silver hair color or gray coverage, consider making a more gradual change with sun-kissed highlights. To keep up the brightness, ask for classic blonde balayage service and add toner services every four to eight weeks for consistent brightness – with this technique, you could go 2 to 4 times without touchups, saving both money and time over time!
If your roots have already begun to come in, strategically placed blonde highlights can add the perfect finishing touch by complementing natural salt and pepper strands. This style works especially well on wavy or curly locks for an easier transition toward full silvers.
Attaining silver hues on dark hair requires more frequent maintenance and may necessitate consulting a professional to determine the appropriate hue. Corrector shampoo can help tone brassiness while sulfate-free shampoos may assist in shade retention. Wearing your hair up or in loose waves also helps mask any harsh lines associated with growing out silvers.
Silver Hair Color
Silver hair colors create an exquisite appearance; from snowy silvery blonde to salt-and-pepper blends, there are numerous choices when it comes to choosing silvery hues for your locks. Unfortunately, maintaining them may prove challenging as retouches must be done frequently; therefore, using an anti-grey hair shampoo like Oribe Silverati Shampoo or Redken Color Extend Graydiant Shampoo may help prolong its beauty for an enhanced effect.
If you have natural dark brown hair, adding silver highlights is an effective way to add depth and create contrast with your roots. Try a dark, smokey silver shade, or opt for subtler transitions with silver balayage highlights for added dimension and contrast.
John Frieda’s Colorista Spray 1-Day Colour in Grey can provide an effective way for those unsure if they are ready for permanent silver dye to test out this shade without bleaching their hair first. For optimal results, avoid blow-drying your locks too frequently and limit heat styling as much as possible for best results.
