Silver is no longer second place- it’s number one right now for hair colour trends. Why are young women and men jumping on the silver hair train? Because it’s cool! (Pardon the pun). Silver hair colours blend cool ash tones with hints of smoky blue and violet, and the result is a totally customized silver for your hair. The best part- it fades to a beautiful platinum blonde. What’s not to love? A trendy tone, long lasting toner, a beautiful fade out.

Silver Fade Out Hair

If you want to try it on, you’ll have to lighten your hair first. Try an ombre fade or hand-painted highlights for something softer, or all-over base lightening for you daring individuals. Got a few natural silver “highlights”? Then you’ll love how easy it is to wear this colour! Our students are custom blending Wella tones to achieve these beautiful silver colours in our salon right now.

So come down to our salon in Gastown (the oldest part of Vancouver), give your clutch purse and pearls back to your mother’s mother and try on the new “granny grey”.
