20 Perfect Silver Blonde Hairstyles to Try in 2020

These looks prove this icy-cool shade is a flattering, season-proof choice.

These days, it’s not about going naturally gray or silver anymore. Women all over are speeding up the gray hair process by signing up for a double process color treatment to achieve a glistening, cool silvery tone. If you want to go for a dramatic change the next time you go to your hair salon, you may want to consider this color. We must admit, silver blonde hair is one of our favorite hair color trends at the moment, and despite what many colorists may think, we don’t think it’ll become just a passing fad any time soon.

Ready to hop on the silver blonde hair train? Check out these inspiring ways to wear the look this season (and beyond!):

1. Silvery Brown Pompadour

Besides the gorgeous mixture of brown and silver in this runway look, we’re totally into the pomp style. The secret weapon for creating this look is a hairpin. Create your mini pomp and slide a hairpin underneath the fold of the hair to lock the height in place.

2. Silver Pony

To create this easy undone ponytail on the weekends, simply use your fingers to gather your hair into a low ponytail and secure with a hair elastic. There’s literally nothing to it!

3. Simple Combover Style

To recreate this look at home, it’s all about the blowdrying process. Blow-dry your hair in the direction you want it to fall and set it in place with a hairspray, like TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Extend Hold Level 4 Hair Spray. We love this spray because it locks your style in all day, but your hair won’t feel stiff or crunchy.

4. Silver and Blue

The only place you should be having the blues is in your hair. This season, mix up your blue hues with pops of silver to intensify the overall look.
