Silver Purple Hair Is the Perfect Hybrid Hue Silver Purple Hair Is the Perfect Hybrid Hue Silver Purple Hair Is the Perfect Hybrid Hue

When it comes to making a statement in the hair department, you can always rely on bold or metallic hair colors to get the job done. The perfect way to add some pizazz to your mane, these hair color trends are not for the faint-hearted. And if you’re game for a fresh hair color, you can combine both trends for a beautiful hybrid hue. Enter: silver purple hair. This trendy shade combines gorgeous notes of purple with shimmery silver tints for a striking shade. Sound like a trend you can get behind? We thought so! Keep reading to learn how to blend silver and purple hair colors for your next mane makeover.

WHAT IS SILVER PURPLE HAIR?

We introduced you to silver purple hair already, but let’s talk a little more about what this hue looks like. While silver purple hair will always feature a mix of purple and silver tones, there are a few ways to embrace this trend. One of the most popular options is to have soft purple roots that fade into silver ends. Another trending option involves an all-over icy purple shade that perfectly captures the look of both purple and silver hair colors.

HOW TO GET SILVER PURPLE HAIR AT HOME

Before you start your journey to achieve this gorgeous hair color, it’s essential to know what it entails. Like it or not, silver purple hair is a dramatic hair color that takes lots of work to achieve. And if you decide that you want to embrace a lighter hue, you’ll need to start off with hair bleach. Not to mention, if you’re beginning with darker locks, your silver purple hair won’t be a one-shot deal. You may need multiple coloring sessions before your hair is light enough to get your perfect silver and purple color. With that being said, we recommend booking an appointment with your colorist to get the look.

On the other hand, if you’re interested in playing with temporary hair color, you can easily bring silver purple locks to life at home. Hello, DIY hair color! For a temporary mane makeover, reach for the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Hair Makeup Temporary 1-Day Hair Color Spray in Purple or Pastel Lavender and Silver. Since all of these colors wash out after one shampoo, there is no need to worry about harming your strands or messing up and being stuck with a hair color mistake. Now that’s what we call smart hair coloring!

To apply the colors, try spraying your purple shade onto your roots and fading the color into your mid-lengths. Finish up with silver on your ends, blending the two colors where they meet, and you’ll have a gorgeous silver purple hue.

HOW TO TAKE CARE OF SILVER PURPLE HAIR

If you seek out a professional to get a permanent silver purple hair color, you’ll need to put in a little extra effort to keep your strands in tip-top shape. Follow these five tips to properly care for your mane. (If you used temporary hair color, there’s no need to switch up your routine, but why not practice a little extra self-care with a hair mask?)

TIP #1. OPT FOR COLOR-TREATED HAIR CARE PRODUCTS

Since you’ve switched things up with a new hair color, you’ll have to give your hair care arsenal the same treatment. Grab the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Repair & Defend Shampoo, L’Oréal Paris EverPure Repair and Defense Conditioner, and L’Oréal Paris EverPure Repair Remedy Balm. Take your hair care up a notch by swapping out the conditioner for the hair mask once or twice a week.

TIP #2. TURN DOWN THE DIAL IN THE SHOWER

We can all agree that hot water feels fabulous on skin, but it’s not the best option for your silver purple hair. See, super-hot H2O can strip your strands of its natural oils, leaving you with dry and dull hair. So, always make sure to rinse with lukewarm water to keep your strands healthy and happy.

TIP #3. ALWAYS USE HEAT PROTECTANT

We understand that some hairstyles call for using heat-styling tools, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t protect your strands from the heat. Spritz on a heat protectant, like the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray, before using your heat tools.

TIP #4. TRY YOUR HAND AT HEAT-FREE STYLING

Instead of always relying on your heat tools to style your strands, why not use a heat-free styling method? It’s a great way to give your mane a break. Apply an egg-sized amount of the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle CURVE IT Elastic Curl Mousse to your strands, scrunch, and let air dry. Once complete, you’ll have soft and bouncy curls to show off!

TIP #5. DON’T MISS TOUCH-UPS

Like it or not, your silver purple hair color will start to fade over time, but that doesn’t mean you have to say goodbye to your hair color. Schedule touch-ups in advance to keep your vibrant color looking its very best.
