3 reasons why you should get silver hair this summer

It isn't too late to try silver hair – in fact, the color is more on trend than ever! More and more salons are equipping themselves with everything they need to give their clients "granny hair", ensuring that the #silverhair hashtag lives on!

You've seen hundreds of photos of silver haired beauties absolutely slaying the look and are considering taking the plunge yourself... should you? Here are 3 things to consider...

It's ethereal, but also natural-looking

Silver hair is certainly part of the pastel hair color family, giving it an otherworldly, fantastic vibe. However, it's also a natural hair color, which keeps it from being too over the top- a major plus for those in search of an original hair color that doesn't look too "artificial". Playful without being too whimsical, even guys are giving in to this fashion-forward shade!

Silver blends well with the roots during regrowth

Another advantage of metallic grey hair is that it allows for a less awkward regrowth period. The color contrasts less against blonde or brown than pink, mauve or green do, giving you a little extra time in between touch up appointments. The only exception, however, is for those of you with red hair, so do consider this before making the change!

It offers a peek into the future

If you don't already have salt and pepper locks, this is the perfect opportunity to discover how you'll look in 10 years or so, all while keeping your hair totally on point. For those who want to camouflage already existing greys without admitting that yes, your hair is definitely going grey, silver hair offers the perfect opportunity to go grey with panache.

Whatever the case, consult your colorist and ask their opinion. Also make sure to equip yourself with a specialized shampoo, such as Silver by L'Oreal Professionnel to maintain your color's vibrancy and shine.
