8. Rose Mauve Long Silver Hair. A warmer reddish take on cool gray and silver shades that sparkles nicely thanks to silver highlights throughout the length.

9. Platinum Silver Hair. Need a fascinating hairstyle sparkling in all shades of gray? Opt for a silver balayage in brighter hues like platinum silver. Such pastel silver highlights on dark hair leave an effect that can only be described as cherubic.

10. Highlighted Silver Blonde Hair. Silver blonde hair is another variety of silver hair that looks super cute. It pairs well with most shades of natural hair colors. Another plus is that it needs less upkeep than platinum silver hair.

11. Silver Money Piece Highlights. Brighten up your dull brunette hair with exquisite strands of silver highlights. Here is a fascinating silver hair coloring idea: introduce bright silver money pieces in the front and get that desirable va-va-voom effect.

12. Rooty Gun Metal Gray. This dark gray shade enriched with a bluish tint infuses the straight hair with extra dimension by letting the deeper base peep out from under the main color and placing a few lighter streaks on the surface around the perimeter.

13. Choppy Silver Hair. The smokey silver balayage spilled on this hair adds a luminous luster to it. It looks even more enticing on the disconnected choppy cut.

14. Shorter Silver Gray Hair. A grayish silver balayage will add a respectable, classy flair to your look. The softness of the color and its exquisite appearance offer you that seemingly effortless elegance. Silver white hair also yields the same adorable results.

15. Silver and Ash Blonde. Silver is exquisite, and that means it requires good care and maintenance. Silver hair dye washes out easily, so wash your hair with colder water and avoid frequent washes.

16. Silver Brown Hair. This is one silver hair color that can never pass by without being noticed. Try this out if you have a cool or neutral skin tone. Icy shades of silver are most enthralling on medium and short hair.

17. Silver Ombre Hair. In order to find the best shade that will work with your hair, you can play around with an ombre. The cascading colors will give you an idea of what specific tone you’ll want to go with the next time you visit the salon.

18. Dark Blonde and Silver Hairstyle. If it seems impossible to choose a shade of blonde, try merging a few of your favorites. Take darker tones as a base, while adding highlighted strands throughout.

19. Short Shiny Silver Hair. Cool and stunning, the icy silver hair is easy on the eyes and a perfect fashion statement for any party. You don’t even need to style it in a special way since the color is enough of a head-turner.

20. Short Bob Silver Hair. Classy meets sassy on this stunning rounded bob. Endeavor to use purple shampoo to wash your silver hair. It’ll help to maintain the beauty and brightness of your silver locks for a long time.

21. Long Wavy Hair with Silver Highlights. If gorgeous hair had a particular hair color, it’d be silver dyed hair. A mix of silver and brunette colors like in the picture below gives a certain glitzy feel to the wavy hair. Leave your roots their natural dark shade to create a remarkable contrast.

22. Dark Silver Hair. Add dimension to your hair with a dark silver color and ask your hair colorist for full highlights. They are also easier to maintain than a solid metallic shade of silver.

23. Silver Hair with Dark Roots. Leaving roots darker is a genial hair hack. When your original hair color shows, you don’t need to bleach your hair again. Instead, you can embrace it fully and make it a part of a breathtaking hairstyle.

24. Silver Ash Blonde Color Melt. This smooth hair color job starts with natural silver at the roots and melts it into a darker multitone gray toward the ends. A great way to save straight hair from feeling limp while also delivering artistic gray blending and giving dimension to the thinning strands.

25. Blonde Bob with Silver Pieces. If chosen and placed right, silver is age-defying. Whether natural gray silver hair or the result of silver hair dye, silver balayage hair always looks delectable. Goes well on both long and short hair lengths.
