Among some of the most popular shades we saw emerge over the Summer, silver metallic hair was one of our favourites. Ideal for those who want to embrace their natural colour or rock a cooler tone, silver hair trends looks set to continue. However, if you want to really pull off this shade, follow our top tips for success.
Choose the Right Undertone
Whenever you have a colour consultation, if you’ve requested your hair to look a certain shade, your stylist will assess a variety of factors to see if and how that can become a reality. This includes the condition of your hair, its existing shade and your skin tone. The best shade of silver hair for you can be achieved with the right undertone for your look. This could be a blueish undertone for lighter skin tones, for example, or a peachy undertone if you have a darker skin colour.
For those with darker eyes and warmer skin complexions, leaving in your natural roots can help you pull off a silver hair with confidence. The silver-grey tones can start from the mid-lengths, running down to the ends. This stops the silver hair looking too harsh while looking effortless at the same time.
Toasted Coconut Delights
For those keeping their natural or darker roots, one of the huge trends emerging on Instagram and Pinterest is toasted coconut hair. This is an amazing idea for adding more warmth to silver hair now the nights are drawing in. What perfect way to update your style this Autumn and Winter than deep brunette hues fading into white, silver or ice blonde locks. You know we love balayage, but this takes silver hair to a whole new level of ‘cool’.
Dip Dyed Hair
Some aren’t a fan of all-over silver hair, missing the vibrancy of brighter colours. Why not go for the dip-dyed look by colouring the ends of your locks with a striking shade. One of our favourite choices is cool grey hair for the lengths with the ends dyed a beautiful shade of blackberry. Or you can even switch the combination and go for a darker shade all over with silver ends.
A Glossy Finish
Silver hair looks best with a glossy, hydrated hair. If your locks need a shot of health, consider hair repair treatments such as those in the KMS hair UK range. These innovative products restore moisture levels in your hair, helping it to become stronger. They’ve also produced some great colour vitality solutions which stop fading in its tracks while reducing the yellowing of lightened hair. Help your silver hair shimmer by asking a professional hair salon to apply KMS hair treatments for you.
