How you can pull off the silver hair trend

Silver metallic hair is everywhere. Grey is so today!

Go grey

Silver, metallic, ash – whatever you want to call it, grey hair is one of the hottest trends in hair recently.

Thankfully, it's one that suits most complexions. It's all about undertones. So ask your L'Oréal Professionnel colourist about your skin tone, eye colour and make the best choice to suit you. It helps to have expert advice to avoid looking drab (no yellow tones!), make sure you're not overdoing the colour, or damaging hair fibres.

Take note! Warmer skin tones should aim for a peachy undertone while cooler skin colourings look better with blueish silver shades. Those with neutral skin can try their luck, because they suit just about anything!

Shine and shimmer

The fun thing about silver is the metallic shimmer and shine you can achieve, which has something magical about it - almost ethereal. So, if you feel like you deserve fairytale hair, it's time to try it. What's more, L'Oréal Professionnel's #colorfulhair means you can try it out and wash it out with just 15 shampoos so there's no excuse not to give it a go.

Give it a twist with a peek aboo colour pop or mermaid style, dip dyed or candy overtones – it all works with silver. The rainbow is your oyster, or something like that.


What the editors say: We also adore Majirel's 12 Ash Iredescent for that lovely silver siren look!

The right silver haircare routine

Silver coloured hair requires hydration. Hydrated, healthy hair means cuticles lie flat and reflect light - best for a glossy, shimmering look. Use a moisturising shampoo for silver hair such as Serie Expert Silver shampoo. It's rich in magnesium and neutralises, enhances colour shine, softens and works against yellowing.

Add a hair mask once a week to your regular routine to add shine and make your coloured hair look even glossier.
