An ombré hairstyle is a perfect look when sporting black and silver hair. These two colors seamlessly blend together. This style is for you if you’re looking for a seamless yet trendy way to incorporate both shades.

3. Silver Under Color

Can’t decide if you want black or 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.

Prefer black under the hair instead? Reverse the silver under-color with this style, which may be easier to accomplish depending on whether you have naturally dark hair. If you are growing silvers alone, this is also a gorgeous and seamless way to help you transition into a new hair color before fully embracing one hue on the mane.

5. 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 transition shades seamlessly. If your 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.

6. 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 exciting way. We love how this look can be worn casually or dressed 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.

7. Black and Silver Bangs

Layered black and silver strands create a flattering two-toned look. We love how these colors look layered within a cute fringe bang look. This style looks great with layered bangs as well!

8. Wavy Black & Silver Bob

This wavy black and silver bob adds some dimension to your hair color. This short cut is a cute way to create a professional chic style for your hair, even with this intricate hair coloring. The look of adding some loose curls to your waves to add layering to your hair is also stunning! We recommend the TRESemmé Freeze Hold Hair Spray to help secure this gorgeous look into place.

Straight cuts are a great way to promote hair health by removing split ends. They also help you create a clean and forward look for the ends of your hair. Although significant, straight cuts might be hard to style at first. Get through the growing pains of straight cuts by sporting a hair color that makes you feel confident!

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