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.
Silver Blonde Hairstyles to Try Out
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 easily undone ponytail on the weekends, simply use your fingers to gather your hair into a low ponytail and secure it 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 blow drying 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
This season, mix up your blue hues with pops of silver to intensify the overall look. If you want to try blue today and another color after a few washes, opt for a gloss instead of a dye.
5. Blunt Silver Cut
It’s blunt cut season! Refresh your silver locks with an edgy on-trend cut like this. Go for blunt bangs, blunt ends, or both. These scattered blonde and silver highlights add a shimmery finish to any hair type and texture.
6. Silver Beach Waves
Beach waves aren’t only for gals with blonde hair. Try the look on silver-blonde hair, too! Apply a sea salt spray to damp hair and scrunch with your hands for that beachy hair effect.
7. Ashy Silver Tones
We had a love affair with ash blonde hair not too long ago. If you are getting tired of your ash blonde look, adding some silvery tones in the mix can help you update your look.
8. Lilac and Silver Hues
Give your silver blonde hair look a pop of color. We love the contrast of this lilac and silver blonde hair mix. Try it with ombre, balayage or even with a few lowlights.
9. Textured Silver Tresses
Create this textured look on your silver blonde hair with a bit of mattifying cream. To begin your style, consider using a color-safe dry shampoo, like Suave Professionals Keratin Infusion Color Care Dry Shampoo, to soak up any oil before styling.
10. Bone Straight Silver Blonde Hair
Sleek, straight hair never goes out of style. Wash your hair with a shampoo formulated to add shine. This can help create a glistening sheen to your silver blonde hair. Then, dry your hair and use your flat iron to create this bone straight look.
11. Silver Low Bun
Need a style idea for second or third-day hair? Pull your silver locks into this chic and low bun style. Here’s an easy way to achieve this low chignon look.
12. Edgy Side Bangs Style
Make your silver blonde hair stand out with an edgy short crop. We love this asymmetrical style. Have your stylist cut your hair at an angle to create this look and take advantage of the many looks you can create like braided bangs, or even add a few curls or waves for texture.
13. Super Short Silver Crop
Taking care of naturally silver hair for older women may not be the easiest when it comes to the wash and care process. However, you can make it a bit easier by getting a haircut that doesn’t require much attention. Now all you have to worry about is maintaining your beautiful color.
14. Silver Roots
Add faint pops of silver streaks into your light brown style to create contrast. Use a purple shampoo, like Nexxus Blonde Assure Purple Shampoo and Conditioner. to prevent fading and brassiness. This set combines Keratin Protein and Violet Pigments to help balance brassy tones and enrich your blonde and silver hue.
15. Faux Silver Hair
Want to try silver blonde hair for just one day or a few? Consider using hair spray for a temporary look. As some of the temporary color formulas may be drying, finish your look with a shine serum.
16. Tousled Bob
Love this tousled look? We have a super easy tutorial. Learn how you can create this bouncy, tousled style on your silver tresses. The key is to create volume at your roots in order to recreate this tousled kind of texture.
17. Voluminous Silver Pixie
Looking for a style with a lift? Opt for this voluminous pixie cut. For thinner hair textures, wash hair with TRESemmé Botanique Color Vibrance & Shine Shampoo and Conditioner. This set is perfect to use on your freshly dyed strands because it’ll help keep your color vibrant while nourishing your hair.
18. Platinum and Silver with Exposed Roots
Exposed roots are definitely a thing these days. Style your silvery platinum look with a gritty texture. This look is perfect for second or third-day hair. Apply dry shampoo directly to your roots to refresh, then use your hair wand to add a few waves. Brush through to finish and add texture.
19. Sleek Silver Style
Sport a sleek style by brushing your hair back into a low ponytail or bun. This kind of style is a great way to show off your unique color while simultaneously keeping your hair out of your face.
20. Silver Highlights
Want to lighten up your blonde hair color just a bit? Try adding some ribbons of silver for a subtle yet modern way to enhance your blonde hair. This color combination is as sleek as it gets!
