For my hair, I'm starting off this year by putting away my extensions and experimenting with my short medium length hair. I needed to do my roots not too long ago so I thought this would be a great time to share how I've been achieving my silver color and show you the hair styles I'm planning to wear!
In order to get a light silver hair color, you have to have very light hair. There's no skipping from black hair to silver hair. Since mine is black, I have to bleach my hair three times with 30 developer. The result is the picture to the left above. It's very yellow.
To get silver hair, I've been using ION Color Brilliance Brights Purple diluted with white conditioner. Overestimate yourself when adding in purple. I always put too much in. Typically I use enough conditioner to cover my hair and then start adding in the dye. This time around I did a very light amount which gave me a beige silver.
You can still see yellow parts. Those are the areas that didn't get bleached enough.
There are silver dyes like from Pravana, but I haven't bought any only cause this dye is readily available to me at Sally's Beauty Supply. I don't mind the different results, whether it comes out beige silver, silver, or purple. They're all pretty!
Though I'm really in love with the shade right now!
As for my current hair length and cut, this is how it looks straight and lightly curled in. I do my hair myself with no help, cut and dye and all, so it's a mess, lol. But, it's fun and it gives me a lot more control over how I want to look.
So here are the styles I've thought up thus far that will work with this kind of cut!
If you're curious, the flower accessories were gifts from one of my best friends, bought from Crafts Way in Hawaii! She sent me a little video when she was in there and the shelves were FILLED with so many pretty flowers. I wish I could see it in person and buy one of everything!
Well, I hope this inspires someone out there :] I know a lot of people get bored with short medium hair quick but try these out and as well as victory rolls, crown braids, and accessories!
Thanks for stopping by and take care!
