White hair may have been a sign of aging in decades past, but nowadays it is stylish and elegant. Think of Legolas and the beautiful men who played as Elves in the Lord of the Rings universe, but white and silver have become as radical and bad-ass as a flaming head of scarlet. But if you want to go chic and sophisticated with an icy beauty vibe, then go for the white hairstyles.
With a slew of hair color and hair care products that can help retain the soft and glossy looks, it’s a simple matter to go from brunette to Nordic white. Whether you want something short and pixieish that can go from bedroom to classroom in a heartbeat or boardroom to cocktails in a blink, we have all the beautiful white styles.
But if your hair is turning naturally white, then embrace your silver foxy self and go for broke and flaunt the look. Own the age and love the style.
Caring for White Hair Styles
Regardless of whether it’s a natural silver or edgy platinum, white hair needs a lot of care. Age can make hair more porous so it’s going to absorb more pollutants. Also, dyeing your hair icy white may take more care than a wash-and-wear hair dye.
1. Be committed
Cultivate a good relationship with your colorist, white hair, regardless of shade, nee touch-ups every four to six weeks. Keep your appointments unless you plan to go for the “dark hair roots” route.
2. Maintain hair health
Remember that you will be stripping your hair of color – completely, that means additional care for your hair. Stripping your hair strands can make your hair susceptible to dryness and breakage. It will be better to get your colorist’s opinion about whether your hair can stand bleaching.
3. Be prepared
Stripping your hair of all color means preparing before you even step foot in the salon. Hold off the shampoo for at least 2 to 3 days before you dye your hair. This will not only help keep your hair’s health, but will also make it easier for your hair strands to soak in the new color.
