24 Inspiring Pictures of Silver Blonde Hair

Silver + blonde hair = the coolest shade of the season! ❄️

Silver blonde hair is a cool-toned hair colour that marries together blonde hair with silver, to create a unique ashy shade that has a brilliant shine. This makes it perfect for year-round wear, as it’ll brighten up your complexion in the winter and make sure you glow in the summer.

Colours range from platinum to ashy blondes and more, and if you’re thinking of getting a bold hair makeover, let this stunning hue convince you to take the plunge.

Scroll down to see the 24 ways you can you pull off silver blonde hair.

How to Get Silver Blonde Hair

So, you’re thinking about going silver? Before diving straight in and getting your heart set on a particular shade, you’ll need to take your base (i.e. current colour) into consideration. Natural and highlighted blondes may only need a toner to give their strands a silvery tint, while brunettes will require pre-lightening with bleach in order to create a blank canvas for the silver toner. We recommend booking in for a consultation with your colourist (these are usually free), to discuss the best course of action to help you achieve your goal colour.
