Silver blonde, grey, platinum, violet-grey – to truly succeed in carrying this hair, you have to think whole package. Pale skin tones must slip on the hottest red for a siren slant, or the darkest berry lip colour for a very Lorde-esque, romantic goth influence; and like protecting metal from rusting, maintenance is truly key to avoiding brassiness. Ever heard of purple shampoos and conditioners? These toning haircare products are excellent for sustaining that sheen on silver pigments.
“A pixie cut would work beautifully with this sort of hair colour,” recommends Albert Nico, hair maestro and owner of Albert Nico Boutique Salon. “I like to use the L’Oréal Professionnel Blond Studio lightening range, Majiblond, to get that superior quality in dye, and Pro Fiber for in-salon post-colouring, as well as home care. I can’t emphasise how important it is to treat and seal the cuticles to ensure the colours come out as you envisioned it.”
As individualistic as this style can be, so it is that you accost this cautiously with your most trusted hairstylist. This look is most definitely not for the wallflower.
