Silver Blonde Hair Looks We Love

Considering going for a platinum silver hair color but need a bit more inspiration? Let the shiny tones of these celebrities’ gorgeous silvery blonde hair colors do the talking for you!

  • Lady Gaga: Always quick to jump on the wagon of a new trend, Lady Gaga debuted her platinum silver hair color back at the Grammys in 2015. Her long, tousled waves screamed old school glamour and the lilac undertones complemented her fair complexion perfectly.

  • Kim Kardashian: Kim Kardashian’s no stranger to shocking the world and she did just that when she revealed her platinum silver hair color. Rather than dipping a toe in, she dived into the trend with waist long icy hair, but we think she definitely pulled it off!

  • Rihanna: Rihanna’s flirted with silver blonde hair on a few different occasions over the years. Whether she’s gone for a lilac, silver and blonde blend or a black and silver ombre, she’s always lets her ashy tones shine.

  • Cara Delevingne: Let’s be honest, The UK’s favorite fashionista is always giving us style envy and things were no different when she revealed her silver blonde hair. Whether she’s rocking a bob or letting her long locks hang loose, she really is the undisputed queen of cool!

  • All-over Platinum Silver Hair Color: For the ladies who want to go bold, you can’t get more daring than an all-over platinum silver hair color. This shiny looks suits cool skin tones and can be achieved using a silver gray hair dye.

  • Silver with a Touch of Lavender: Who would have imagined a good old fashioned blue rinse could look so modern? To achieve silver hair, you need to eliminate all the warm tones from your hair and let your cool tones shine through. Conveniently, the only shade cooler than silver itself is lavender which, we must say, is a pretty cool color in both aspects of the word. Plus, it looks great with silver hair.

  • Black and Silver Ombre: A black and silver ombre will definitely turn heads without being too drastic a change. If you’re a natural brunette and don’t think you’re ready for a full head of silver hair, this is the look for you. It’s a lot more unusual and futuristic than the usual caramel balayage but still easy enough to achieve in one sitting.

  • Silver Hair with Dark Roots: On the drastic scale, silver hair with dark roots is a step somewhere between an all over platinum silver  hair color and a black and silver ombre. While your silver hair shines with opulence, your dark roots will accentuate the color even more. We’re sure that lazy girls will love the excuse to grow their roots out, too!

How to Dye your Hair Silver

With an extra bit of care and attention, a silver blonde hair dye color can be easily achieved at home by following our tips for dying hair silver.

Step 1: Protect!
In the weeks leading up to using your silver gray hair dye, be sure to deeply condition your hair on a regular basis. For a gorgeous color, your hair needs to be in a great condition. On the big day, apply Vaseline to your neck and hairline to protect your skin from stains.

Step 2: Prep!
Separate your hair into quarters or sixths, depending on its thickness and get all the things you’ll need. We recommend wearing old clothes and using old towels when using your silver blonde hair dye. If you want to use a mixing bowl and brush, make sure you have these things to hand, too.

Step 3: Lighten!
Before you use your silver blonde hair dye, you’ll need to bleach your hair to a shade that’s lighter than the tone you want to achieve. We recommend using Crazy Color Bleaching Kit Volume 30 for an all-over color. If you’re only bleaching the ends of your hair or applying highlights, it’s fine to use a stronger bleach like La Riche Hair Lightening Kit Volume 40- just be sure not get this extra-strong bleach close to your scalp, though.
Always follow the instructions on your individual bleach kit and be sure not to leave it on for longer than recommended.

Step 4: Tone!
Before applying the dye to your hair, you’ll need to apply a silver hair toner to remove all the unwanted yellow tones. After using it, your hair should be cool, ashy and ready for the silver gray hair dye.

Step 5: Dye!
Now for the fun bit- getting the color just right. After you’ve chosen the best gray hair dye for the look that you want, follow the instructions on the box and let it develop. For a uniform color, it’s best to add the color evenly to each section of your hair using a dying brush.

Not ready to take the leap? If your hair’s already blonde, you might want to experiment with a silver blonde semi permanent hair dye and then go all the way after you fall in love with the enchanting color.

Step 6: Maintenance
Silver hair can require some upkeep so be sure to follow these aftercare tips for dying hair silver.

  • Use a sulfate free shampoo and conditioner to prevent the color from stripping.
  • Rinse your hair with cold water to lock the color in.
  • Use a purple silver hair toner shampoo to eliminate yellowness.
  • Keep your hair moisturized to lessen bleach damage.
