With the start of the new year, it’s time for a new cool trend: sonic silver hair. Considering it’s still winter, this look fits perfectly with the season. But what is it exactly? Will it look good on you, and how can you get the look? Read on to find out more details and see some of our favorite celebrity looks!

What Is Sonic Silver Hair?

This is a soft mix color between beige and silver. It’s a sheerer version of the heavy, ashy grey color, and it looks a lot fresher and cooler. It is futuristic but also very subtle and modern. The color is inspired by the ‘90s and ’00s trends, also known as “the Gen X Soft Club,” brought back to life by social media legend TikTok. It would look especially great on people who have a pinkish skin tone. The style is extremely popular in Japan and Korea.

A TikToker says that in the late ‘90s and early 2000s, it was all about minimalist fashion and urban city nightlife. The colors of retro-futurism included blues, greys, and greens. But what about sonic silver hair? When the iPod was launched in 2001, it truly changed how we listened to music, so it inspired a sonic generation. Needless to say, the iPod’s silver color looked quite futuristic, too.

How to Get the Look

The secret to achieving the perfect silver hair look is using a quality ash toner. Many people used to be scared of toners as they would either lighten their hair too much or make it look too dark. Don’t be afraid of toners, but instead, invest in good products. They will give you a great shine, and the color will last for up to six weeks. Your hair will look luminous and very natural.

Although most sonic silver-haired girlies rock a short and clean look, this doesn’t mean you can’t experiment. The sonic silver color is versatile, and it can look good on mullets, bobs, braids, and longer hair. Celebrities like Vanessa Hong and BLACKPINK’s Rosé have pulled off the look perfectly. So go for sonic silver hair and start the new year fresh!
