5 Signs Silver Hair is Back in a Big Way

Color Trends

Silver hair is going strong for summer. The craze for metallic manes started with rose gold hair, which has been serving up pink-hued, high-gloss hairspiration for months now. Now, silver locks are rising to the fore as a cool-toned take on the trend, and the look is set to rival the popularity of even this year’s big Insta favorite, ice blonde hair.

It’s easy to see why, too. Silver hair is a) statement-making, b) ultra-shiny and c) the coolest way to embrace grey roots - if they’re starting to come through, that is. Gone are the days when “silver fox” was only used to describe salt ‘n’ pepper-haired men. Now, the likes of Kim Kardashian and Dascha Polanco are showing us why it’s good to go silver-grey.

Of course, a certain amount of lightening is required to achieve a true silver. For the clearest result on your clients, use Blondor Extra Cool Blonde Powder to pre-lighten hair to a pale yellow, then follow with two toning services: one to neutralize the yellow, and the other to add a dose of silver. We recommend Color Touch 7/89 for a darker, almost-gunmetal hue, or 0/89 for a striking silver tone that veers platinum. This two-toner process helps to create a longer-lasting finish and ensures the color gradually fades to a cool-toned blonde. No brassy tones here.

Now you know the basics of securing silver hair, it’s time to get inspired. Keep scrolling for five cutting-edge, creative ways to help your clients try the trend this season…
