15 Stunning Silver Blonde Hair Colors

Silver blonde hair colors

Silver-blonde hair is a hybrid hair color that blends a pale blonde with silvery hues. Similar to platinum blonde, silver-blonde hair tends to be darker and more cool-toned, while platinum sticks to a bright true white. Silver hair creates a metallic hair color that shimmers.

It’s well known among professionals that this updated color gives a dramatic change to anyone who wears it! Fashioned by runway queens like Cara Delevigne, Taylor Swift, and Karlie Kloss, this divine hue is now easily achievable!

Obviously, a lightened base color is a must if you want to achieve a perfect shimmering silver blonde mane. A regular visit to your colorist for root touch-ups is also required to keep your roots from showing, and being best friends with a good purple shampoo will keep your platinum dreams alive and long-lasting.

What better way to enter the world of blondes than with this icy avant-garde hair color?

Q&A with style creator, Emily Salviolo
Stylist @ Dorjon Aveda Salon in Boca Raton, FL

How would you describe this look?

This look is a baby light technique. I love doing this because the grow out is amazing. There are never harsh lines, and it also gives more dimension. Her hair is fine so we cut a few inches of the thicken up her ends to make them healthy. The sleek straight hair is always a go-to for a sexy look!

Any advice for someone considering it?

This look doesn’t have harsh lines, but I would recommend coming in every 6-12 weeks to get in touch up. Straight fine hair looks the best for this exact look but there are plenty of different ways to customize this look for each client. Purple shampoo is the best for blondes to keep the unwanted tones out. I also recommended getting Aveda daily hair repair. Using an everyday product to put proteins back in your hair while being a heat protectant is always a must!

Silver Ash Blonde

How would you describe this look?

This look is a dimensional ash blonde cut with long soft waves and soft layering.

Any advice for someone considering it?

Trust in the process. Depending on the level your hair is at now and the chemical history of your hair, this look can take many sessions to achieve or may not be achievable. When considering this look, you must be able to commit to the steps it will take to get here as well as the maintenance to keep the silver ash tone.

You will have to invest in quality products for the longevity of this look and health of your hair. I recommend Redken Blondange shampoo and conditioner to keep the silver tones, as well as Olaplex #3 take home treatment to keep your hair strong and healthy. I love these ashy cool tones, but you do have to consider if cool ashy tones will complement your skin tone and not make you look washed out.

Hairstylist @ House of Style in Palm Desert, CA

How would you describe this look?

This is light ash dimensional blonde and what I like the most is that we keep her natural base color running through it paired with her root tap which makes her grow out a bit more seamless.

Any advice for someone considering it?

I would definitely let them know it can be a bit high maintenance. Therefore home care is just as important as what we do in the salon, if not more important, so using the right product is key. I always recommend Olaplex shampoo and conditioner along with the Number 3 at home treatment to keep hair hydrated and healthy. Also, a leave-in conditioner or treatment. If you’re committing to the process and price of this look, you definitely want to invest in great products.

Blonde Specialist / DevaCurl Stylist @ Joseph Anthony Retreat Spa and Salon in Springfield, PA

How would you describe this look?

I would consider this more of an icy blonde. I love my blondes! It’s so satisfying rinsing the color out and seeing the transformation.

Any advice for someone considering it?

This look is great for almost anyone! It definitely takes time to achieve and upkeep. Becoming a silver blonde is a process, but once reached very simple to keep up with. I always recommend a purple shampoo for my silver blondes. They are instructed to use it at least once a week to keep yellow tones away.

Metallic Silver and Blonde

Q&A with style creator, Ali Keogh
Co-owner / Director @ Headkase Salon in Dubai, UAE

How would you describe this look?

This look is a grey metallic blonde! The thing I love about it is the longevity of the cool toner even as the color fades away this client never comes back to me brassy (bearing in mind she has 12 weeks between appointments). She has an amazing head of hair, to begin with. Even when blow-dried smooth, it has an amazing life and energy. Our favorite styling tool is the Cloud Nine large waving wand which complements the color work beautifully to see the color.

Any advice for someone considering it?

Be prepared to do a lot of lightening as the undercoat of a color like this is white. It’s more of a statement color for me so if you’re a trendsetter this is the perfect blonde for you! Home care is essential for someone this adventurous! In order for the beautiful colors to be brought to life, we must be a team. I do awesome color work and she takes incredible care of it! She’s an active socialite and sassy mamma so this fits her personality perfectly. We use Olaplex when we lighten to protect the hit as much as possible when in the salon chair, and Nat uses Kevin Murphy home care blonde angel range.
