Leave a little bit of dark color at your roots.

One of the best parts about ombré hairstyles is that you still maintain some of your natural color at your roots. You can take your look even a full step further by just leaving the roots dark and diving into the silver hair life with the rest of your strands.

2. Silvery Blonde
