If You Have Stunning Silver Or Ash Brown Locks, These Tips Are For You
When you have 60% or more gray hair it’s time for you to make the exciting move to the COOL category. Ash brown hair with no gold or red in it will also put you in the COOL zone. There are many amazing colors that will amplify your look when you have gray hair such as ocean blue, royal purple, and soft pink.
It can feel tricky to do this if you are used to wearing colors that are wildly different than the cool colors we suggest. Wearing clothing in colors that compliment your silver hair will transform your overall look. Check out our digital swatches here for more ideas of colors just for you.

1. Cool Hair=Cool Clothes
Dress for your coloring. If you have cool-toned hair, you want to wear cool-toned clothes. It sounds like an easy concept, and it’s one that can make all of the difference. If you are tempted to wear autumn colors because you have always worn autumn colors, rethink your options. What used to look amazing on you may not be your best choice anymore. Pass on brown, beige, and orange. But you have many NEW options available to you. Charcoal gray, navy, and black are great neutrals, and purple, cornflower blue, and pink are fantastic “pop” colors for you.
Another way to enhance your skin and hair is with make-up. When looking for a foundation, look for a neutral color that is closest to your skin tone. Berry, plum, and anything in the pink family will flatter your coloring. Stick with a pink palette cheek color and finish with a rose/pink lipstick or gloss. If you are looking for a statement, find a true red lipstick to complete your look.
4. A Scarf Is Always A Good Choice
Keeping a small collection of scarves on hand is an easy way to elevate your style. This purple scarf would be wonderfully complementary to anyone with gray or silver hair. A small square scarf (usually silk or an acrylic material) is a great way to add color without the bulk. Look for scarves in pop colors like silver, purple, or blue.
5. Last But Not Least, Shoes And Purse
No outfit is truly complete without shoes and a purse. Take a minute to match your shoes and purse to your hair color. When you do this, you can leave the house at a moment’s notice and look completely put together. This is a basic rule and our favorite tip because it applies whether your shoes are expensive or thrifty.
Being in the COOL color code is an exciting thing! As one of God’s masterful creations, you are stunning with your silver hair. Embrace it and dress for it.
