All-Over Color

The silver hair trend is by far the most popular hair color trend of 2020 so far. The ‘gray movement’, if you will, looks good on a variety of hair lengths and styles but really shows off its luster on long hair. That may be due to the rarity of seeing long lustrous gray hair since most traditional gray-haired ladies either cut their hair to a shorter style or style it to a more conservative, traditional updo.

Also on the scene, is the “Icy Silver” which causes me to wish I could write Disney to inform them if they do a “Frozen 2” they simply must change “Elsa” from a ‘platinum blonde’ to this icy color. What better hue for the original “ice queen”? Kylie Jenner is also rocking this color, bringing it to the forefront of hip styles for this season.

The word ombre derives from the French meaning shaded but it certainly sounds sexy doesn’t it! Essentially, that means there can’t be a wrong shade of silver! Whether light or dark there are several shade choices that you can choose to hype up your hairstyle. Whether you are a naturally raven-haired beauty or a lovely brunette the silver hair omber will work for you. The black to silver ombre is a dramatic bold statement that shows everyone your confidence. While the silver ombre brown hair may be slightly less daring, its unique blending is breath-taking. I, for some reason, refer to this style as the waterfall effect. The exquisite way that this ombre has its effect on a brunette is stunning.

If you are desiring to wade into the world of silver hair, then highlights are the answer for you. Silver hair highlights are the perfect solution for someone who doesn’t desire to go through a drastic hair color change but is seeking a more subtle transition. Gray highlights on dark hair have been said to give one a more mysterious and intriguing look. Also, for someone who is beginning to naturally turn gray, highlights are a way to soften the aging blow allowing you to trick your mind into believing you’re not actually aging, you’ve simply acquired a new hairstyle. This process also works for brunettes. By placing gray highlights in brown hair, the aging effect can be disguised into a fashion statement. You can step into this new trend without diving head-first into uncharted waters by taking the route of highlights prior to going more drastic into the solid gray trend.

Silver Hair Balayage

To balayage or to not balayage, that is the question. This process of painting gives a more natural effect than the typical foil process of highlighting. For the brunette hair with silver highlights often appears as a very abrasive or bold contrast. Often women are not pleased with this result. That is where the process of balayage enters the scene. In the photos provided above, you can see how the process of balayage flows much smoother than photos you can find of a woman who has black hair with silver highlights pictures. In conclusion, personally, I prefer a more flowing look as opposed to a patchy appearance often achieved with typical highlighting. So, for this girl, she would definitely balayage!
