From fried beige to sparkling silver hair
It took me 12 months to grow out my silver hair. You can read about my journey in my blog posts. A good place to start is here: https://shinyhappysilver.com/2022/04/08/silver-transformation-part-one-the-first-47-years/
The first picture (with the dark, dyed hair) was about three months before my silver hair journey started in March 2021.
In the second picture, I had embraced the Curly Girl Method by March 2021 and was enjoying natural waves. Realising how important hair health is, I decided to grow out the grey a few weeks later.
Mini highlights to aid silver hair transition
Picture three shows me fresh from the salon in April 2021. The stylist added a few baby lights to lighten the red I had dyed it in picture two. I was adament they left the roots silver.
By picture four, you can see the silver is really taking root. This is May 2021 and I took to wearing my hair pinned up to show off the silver.
Pictures five, six and seven are similar time frames.
Picture eight shows my hair in July 2021 after a trim. Having my hair cut enabled me to focus less on the blorange and more on the silver. I remember this was a tricky time, so I wore lots of hair accessories to mix it up.
Pictures nine, 10, 11 and 12 are taken in August and September 2021. I had gone for a second cut and really enjoyed this shorter bob length as it was so versatile.
A pixie cut to help grow out the grey
In October 2021 (picture 11) I went to the barber’s for a pixie. I was fed up with the blorange and getting impatient. I loved this cut, and you can see from pictures 12 to 14 how much fun I had experimenting with hairbands and waves again.
Pictures 13 and 14 were taken around January 2022. This was a tricky phase of boy band curtains, where my hair was neither a pixie or a bob.
One year to reach destination silver hair
By February and March 2022 (final two pictures) my hair was a short bob. I had another trim at the barber’s to neaten it all up.
The journey continues, so please see my latest blogs for updates.
