Battle Winter Blues With a Spark of Silver

silver-hair-blog-1The Holidays may be over, but the winter weather is here for a little longer. Blades stylist Samantha Willman suggests battling the winter blues with a fun and trendy style update – gorgeous silver tresses.

Screen Shot 2016-01-27 at 2.20.27 PMSilver hair was named one of biggest hair trends of 2015, and this fun fad is far from over. Silver is the new blonde, and Sam knows how to make it pop.

“We’ll start with a dark root for dimension,” she says, “and let your natural color ombré into the silver.” This method has beenroot-shoot seen recently on Hilary Duff, who just took her look in a colorful direction. “It’s easier to grow out when you’re ready for a change, and doesn’t look so stark right against your skin.”

Style this fabulous look with lots of texture. “If you have short to medium length hair, a wax spray is going to be best,” suggests Samantha, “and for medium to long length hair, I recommend EIMI’s Root Shoot for added volume while drying.”
