Silver highlights are glamorous, fashionable and a must-have for a funky, cool and trendier you! Up to now it has been kept as one of Mother Nature’s top secrets but you can showcase its powerful effects, what have you got to lose?

Silver and White Highlights

When you sport a striking color, you tell the world that ’you’ are the designer of your world and why not? Men have got away with grey for years and relish in the term ‘distinguished’. Now ladies, it is your turn to create the hottest fashion statement. Ask your hairdresser to jazz up your hair with some gray highlights and show off your beautiful crowning glory. Celebrities, models and teenagers are sporting the silver look, so whether you are 16 or 90 take a look at just how transforming and liberating some silver streaks can be.

#1: Striking Silver Curls

The warm chocolate hair transcends into the masses of sterling silver waves to emanate a frosty lift. A movie star image with big dazzling hair that not only sweeps to one side, it sweeps people off their feet too!

#2: Multi-Toned Sleek Bob

The micro ribbons of color blend shades of silver, cayenne pepper, cocoa and grey onto naturally black hair to transform this fluid bob. Lowlights captivate a unique blend of hues which marry the shades from the fall with cool wintery crispness. The overall effect is a soft voluminous style with a free-flowing finish for admiring glances wherever you go!

#3: Wild Waves

The subtle silver highlights provide nuances of sophistication and blend blonde tresses with dark hair to come up with a whole new dimension. Such a clever use of color enhances the texture, as a waterfall of layers delivers volume to the tousled waves. Bring out the “Me Tarzon, You Jane” for a wild and carefree spirit.

#4: Mane Of Color

Besides the length, color is the main attraction of this hairstyle. The vibrant blonde and gray highlights create streaks which are thinning and melting towards the ends. The perfect blend of dark and light provides a powerful statement.

#5: Medium Long Shag

Silver highlights can be a part of a sophisticated mix of colors where warm and cool hues mingle to create a mane of a sultry sex-kitten. The ruffled layers dance sweetly below the shoulders and nestle into a purr-fect blend of modesty and radiance.

#6: Black and Grey Straight Lob

If you prefer to stick with a classic haircut, you can be more experimental with your color. Try enhancing your ‘do with a unique dye job such as this grey balayage. The mix of light and dark grays adds a new dimension to the cut. The blend and distribution of the colors also make it clear that you haven’t gone white prematurely.

#7: Brown to Grey Babylights

Grey highlights are absolutely fabulous on dark brown hair. With black hair the contrast is stark, but with brown layers like these, you can achieve a very soft, blurred look.

#8: Winter Steel Bronde

Can you spot the silver? The streaks have been blended with the medium brown base so expertly that you almost don’t notice them. It is a fantastic option if you would like to try a grey dye job, but feel unsure about how appropriate it would look in a conservative office.

#9: Titaium Pearl Dimension

Just admire the way all of these shades mix together. Chocolate brown and grey initially look like totally different colors, but they create an unusual and appealing color combo. We love the bluish tint of the grey in particular.

#10: Auburn Base with Silver Highlights

At first thought, red hair and silver highlights are two things that seem like they would not go together, but they actually do. The warmth of the auburn melts in the whitish silver. For a more striking result, opt for chunkier streaks.

#11: Black and White Combo

Here’s how you make your color work with your ‘do. Try a fauxhawk (that is meant to be defined with color) in the trendy silver hue. The black cropped sides contrast the fluffy silver feathers on top. Be brave and try it out.

#12: Brownish Grey Enchantment

Want to have a bit more pizzazz to your natural hair color? Forget the golden streaks and try some grey pieces instead. You do not need to have a lot, and they do not need to be thick. A minimal amount does make a difference. If you want more, you can always go back to your stylist

#13: Ash Bronde Hair

Silver highlights can work on any base. To get the end result right, work with your hairstylist to help you achieve the desired finish. If you’re enamored with the idea of a soft style, a few silver streaks painted in brown hair are a romantic option.

#14: Dirty Blonde with White Streaks

Chunky highlights look beautiful in long hair. Their placement should be considered, but appear rather random, like a few thick face-framing pieces and a bit smaller streaks here and there.

#15: Grey Highlights on Honey Blonde

The contrast of warm and cool hues is usually the most impressive, but if you want a soft yet noticeable look, you can definitely achieve it. Here’s a lovely example of honey blonde and silver blend.

#16: Cool Toned Lowlights

Putting gray highlights in blonde hair doesn’t make it look dirty. The silvery pieces woven into her blonde base actually give her hair some radiant shimmer. The lowlights make this style dimensional.

#17: Shiny White Highlights

This wavy hairstyle features shaggy ends and bright white highlights. The dark brown at the roots gradually gets lighter with the inclusion of grey, silver and white along the length. The result is dazzling waves you want to look at again and again.

#18: Grey Hair with Brown Underlayer

With the gray hair trend you don’t have to change your hair color completely. Have fun with grey sprinkled through the top layers with your natural shade on the bottom. It will look beautiful when you wear your tresses down, but it will also create a striking effect in updos.

#19: Silver and Brown Waves

A solid grey silver hair color is a bold choice not everyone is ready to make. Meanwhile, grey brown hair is a pretty and easy thing on its own, and it only improves when you divide the two shades as the main color and highlights. When your tresses are in need of a refresh, you can add thin white highlights for brightness.

The white silver hair is magical. Her mane features blonde, dove grey and white highlights to achieve the flowing metallic finish. In case you wish to set off those light shades, ask for some darker grey and black streaks as underlights.

Hot red hair gets excellently cooled down with a splash of white blonde. Chunky on the top and very thin, dripping towards the ends, these blonde highlights make the red hairstyle one-of-a-kind.
