Blunt Cut with Darker Silver Highlights
Contrary to popular belief, silver hair isn’t limited to older individuals; its beauty and style transcend generations. Instead of fully embracing the silver glory, you can opt for darker silver highlights that add dimension and blend well with natural blonde hues. Balayage techniques work wonderfully with blonde locks and complement dyed silver hair by allowing some darker roots for a smoother grow-out phase.
Silver Beach Waves
Before going silver, consider your skin undertones, as it works best with cool complexions. You can check if you have cool undertones by examining the veins on your wrist, which should appear bluish. If your hair is more brown than blonde, bleach it a few shades lighter before applying the silver shade. To maintain a bright and fresh look, use a purple-based color-correcting shampoo.
Ash Blonde Fade
The silver and ash blonde fade is an excellent choice for those who prefer a more subtle transition. The cooler tones in this hue blend naturally with the skin, making it ideal for those who enjoy a grunge aesthetic without going too dark or dingy. Balayage with an excellent brown base and silver-toned strands creates a natural-looking ash blonde, especially on dark brown hair. Use shampoo and conditioner specifically designed for color-treated hair to preserve the color.
Silver hair can be styled in various ways, and one option is to let naturally graying locks grow out while dyeing the remaining hair with an ashy silver hue. Multiple rounds of bleaching may be necessary to achieve the desired look. Another approach is silver balayage, which looks stunning in different base colors. Dark brunettes can add visual impact with water-colored highlights, precisely placed atop espresso-brown hair, creating a captivating appearance. For a bolder look, consult a colorist about adding a medium metallic silver hue, as lifting the base to light levels might not be feasible with DIY methods.
