Doesn’t it seem like every day, there’s another hair color trend popping up all over the place? With so many different hues out there, which one should you pick the next time you decide to dye your hair? Well, if you’ve ever thought about going platinum, you’re going to want to hear about this updated take on the look.
One of the most popular shades of the moment is silver blonde hair—and we happen to think it looks super-pretty. Silver blonde hair is hybrid hair color that blends traditional blonde hair with a silver hue for a platinum-esque look. The slight metallic shimmer from the silver tones lends to a more modern, holographic hair look, while the blonde keeps things from veering too far out there. Below, find out what goes into dyeing hair a silver blonde color, how to get the look, and how to take care of your silver blonde ‘do.
Choosing to change your hair color might seem as simple as looking at a picture of your favorite celebrity and saying, “I’m in!” But when it comes to the actual logistics of dyeing your hair, there are a few things you’ll want to take into consideration first. To figure out whether or not silver blonde hair is the right color choice for you, ask yourself the following three questions.
Question #1: Have you done your research? Regardless of what color you decide to dye your hair, it’s important to research the process first. That goes for silver blonde hair as well. For starters, look at lots of pics of silver blonde hair to pick out the shade you want. Some hair colors require more work to achieve—and more upkeep—than others (silver blonde hair is definitely one of them), so you’ll want to keep that in mind before taking the plunge. Finally, dramatic hair color changes are best left to the professionals, so you’ll want to find a colorist who can skillfully change up your look.
Question #2: Are you patient? Silver blonde hair is a dramatic hair color that can require quite a bit of work to achieve. In order to get the look, you’ll need to bleach your hair first. And the darker your starting color, the more sessions may be required to reach your desired level of silver blonde hair.
Question #3: How committed are you to your new ‘do? Some hair colors are higher maintenance than others. If you want to keep your silver blonde hair color looking fresh, regular touch-ups will be key—otherwise your roots will be visible.
When it comes to creating a beautiful silver blonde hair color, your best bet is visiting a pro colorist who can guide you through the process from start to finish. Remember that you’ll need to have your hair bleached first and that it might take multiple sessions in the salon chair until you’ve achieve the silver blonde hair of your dreams, especially if you’re starting with a dark base shade.
Colored your hair silver blonde? Congrats! Now it’s time to change up your hair care routine, as blonde, color-treated hair deserves special care. Reach for a system of shampoo, conditioner, and mask formulated for blonde, color-treated hair. Try the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Blonde Shampoo, L’Oréal Paris EverPure Blonde Conditioner, and L’Oréal Paris EverPure Blonde Shade Reviving Treatment.
Pair your silver blonde hair color with an equally gorgeous hairstyle! Blonde hair + beachy waves = an inspired match. After hopping out of the shower, gently blot your hair dry. Then, spritz on the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Wave Swept Spray. Braid your hair, let it air dry, then undo the braid for soft waves—no trip to the ocean required.
