Silver Hair Color Ideas You Will Want to Sport!
- BE BRIGHT, BE BOLD: Find the silver lining in one of our newest colors yet! Starbright Silver is a highly dimensional, lavender-toned silver that's great for all over color or added for a peekaboo effect with any SPARKS vibrant shades. For best results, apply to hair that has been pre-lightened to a level 10 blonde. In simplier terms: the hair should be a really pale yellow color. For maximum color vibrancy and durability, pre-lighten hair with SPARKS HIDRACOLOR Powder Lightener and Creme Developer.
1. Purple Streaks
One reason you should try this look is that it gives you an excuse to color your hair again. Silver surprisingly works great with black roots. Add a bit of purple to create a crazy beautiful illusion to your style.
2. Bold Silver
Calling all ladies who love black, we have some great news for you! Bright, bold silver pairs perfectly with all things black − black makeup, black nails, etc. with enough glam but not too gothic.
3. Dark Grey on Short Hair
4. Silver Hair Ombre
Ombre isn’t all about brunettes and blondes. Style up your hair with silver ombre hues, too!
5. Full Hair Dye
A full head of silver hair looks stunning as well! Look at those streaks of blue and purple! While a salon can take care of your hair, it pays to know you need a purple toner when coloring in gray, especially if you are to DIY. It will counteract the yellow undertones of your blond hair.
6. Dove Dip-Dye
Don’t want to let go of all your dark roots? Simple, a silver hair dye dip does the trick. We understand you want to look whimsical but not over the top and we’re giving you the thumbs up!
7. Black Silver Hair Highlights
If you want to be more creative but like to take it low-key, bleach your hair all the way through and add black highlights. It makes up for a trendier and cooler you!
8. Icy Silver Hair
This icy hair color embodies the pure beauty of having silver hair. Make sure to pick the right shade of gray for your skin type. For fair skin, it’s best to pick darker shades of gray so you don’t look pale or washed out.
9. Silver Hair and Tan Skin
Anyone can pull off silver hair, even those with extremely tan skin. Darker skin allows the silver glow to really pop. It’s a charming contrast which reminds us of feisty Storm from X-Men.
10. Lavender Hair
Do you have gold or yellow tones to your hair? Cover it with lavender to achieve a shining shimmering silver hair color!
