Can’t decide if you want black of silver hair? Opt for an under colored look. This consists of having the top half of your hair be one color and the bottom half be a different color. This look is great for updos or if you want a hint of color peeking out from underneath.

4. Black to Silver Box Braids

An ombré look in box braids never fails to disappoint. Whether you dye your actual hair or use synthetic hair or yarn in your box braids, this style is a great way to seamlessly transition shades. If you scalp begins to feel tight or dry between washes or braidings, use a scalp serum, like SheaMoisture Wig & Weave Tea Tree & Borage Seed Oil Scalp Soother.

5. Black and Silver Half-Updo

Show off a two-toned black and silver hairstyle with a half-updo. Pin back one side of your hair for a look that displays both colors in an interesting way. We love how this look can be worn casually or dressed up with a fancier hair clip.

To keep your color looking vibrant use a purple shampoo and conditioner set, like Nexxus Blonde Assure Purple Shampoo and Conditioner. This set is formulated for blonde, bleached, and silver strands to help neutralize brassy tones.

6. Black and Silver Bangs

Whether you opt for black and silver ombré hair or weave the two colors throughout your look, there are so many ways you can sport both shades. Make sure to share your look with us on Instagram @AllThingHairUS.
