Lady Gaga opted for dark grey hair dye which is perhaps the boldest statement of all three of our famous silver celebs. She has tried plenty of different silver tones but this one has got to be our favourite. This darker colour gave more of a ‘granny’ grey style than some other silver options. Naturally, Lady Gaga pulled off this look wonderfully.

Silver is often seen as one of the more difficult hair colours to achieve, but as long as you’re willing to put in the time you shouldn’t have any issues! And before you worry, it is possible to get silver hair treatment no matter what your natural hair colour is.
To achieve your best silver fox tone you are going to need to bleach your hair first, especially if you have naturally dark hair. Silver hair dyes are sure to look best when added to light hair but if you only want to achieve a colour change for one night then Manic Panic Dye Hard Temporary Styling Gel in Stiletto is sure to help you achieve that magical look. Add some sparkle to your hair for festivals, parties and costumes. If you are looking for longer-lasting results then here is a quick guide on how to prepare your hair:
Conditioning – It is vital that your hair is in the best condition before bleaching or dyeing. Conditioning your hair more regularly will help thicken and strengthen the strands so make sure to pamper your locks with your favourite products. This counteracts the effect that bleach has on hair. Bleach can weaken and dry out the hair so for a luscious end result make sure to top up your conditioner.
Bleaching – If you would like to lighten your hair before applying grey hair dye then you are going to need a bleaching kit. Always follow the instructions included with your product and be sure to test the product before fully applying in case of allergies. Ingredients, timing and application can vary so it is important to note no two brands are the same.
Toning – Toning will allow you to start with a blank canvas. It essentially removes any undertones or colours left behind by the bleaching process. Depending on which colour you are going to choose, this can be an important step in order to achieve the best and brightest results.
Now you are ready to add your colour. Remember to always test your hair dye first to ensure the results are as desired, especially if you are choosing permanent silver hair dye. Most of Blue Banana’s hair dyes are semi-permanent which is perfect for people who love to switch up their look or want to have a funky hairstyle for the summer. With varying durations, you can find the perfect product for you. From 1 day to 6 weeks, you can stay in control of your hair colour.
If you have never dyed your hair before then you are going to need to create a silver hair dye kit. Make sure to pick up a tint brush and mixing bowl for easy home application. A tint brush will help you achieve even coverage, quickly and with minimum mess. Why not use some old hair clips or hair bands to section off hair? This will help you achieve maximum coverage or create your own funky style.
The best silver hair dye needs to be bright and fearless in order to create a fierce platinum style. With plenty of brands to choose from, Blue Banana can help you create just that. Choose from Crazy Color, La Riche Directions, Manic Panic, Paintglow and Herman’s Amazing Hair Colour. We particularly love the subtle blue/purple tones of the Paintglow Rebellious Colours Semi-Permanent Hair Dye in Silver Storm. This is perfect for a modern take on silver hair colour.
