Step: If you’re going gray naturally transform your random silver strands into a fashionable statement by adding thick ribbons of silver throughout your mane. It’s a great way to disguise your hair’s age.

Step: If you’re starting with dark hair, add a full head of bright blonde highlights and glaze with a cool silver blonde to unite and blend the different levels. Goldwell Express Toning in 9 Silver will give hair an icy cast without dulling.
