“Steel Hair” Is The Chic New Hair Trend Storming Instagram

Steel hair is the chicest way to move away from blonde into something more winter-ready.

In summer, it’s fun to rock beachy blonde hair with golden waves and platinum highlights. Come winter, maintaining blonde hair is a little less fun, especially when opting for sophisticated, fall-friendly fashion choices.


Instead of going brunette for winter, more and more Instagrammers are opting for “steel hair” to see them into the fall. The silver shade is not only cool, but it also makes it easy to transition back to blonde when winter is up.


“An eye-catching look that works perfectly with the autumn color pallet, I highly recommend this look for anyone wanting to add a splash of interest to their hair this October,” senior stylist Jack Hurst told Glamour.

“The color is great for autumn clothes and color palettes as well as going into darker lipsticks or smokey eyes. This color gives sun-damaged hair a new lease of life and depth, and it works great with a root as well because the color just blends in with the root.”

The other good news is that you can easily dye blonde hair steel at home. So if we do go into another lockdown, you’ll have an excuse to try out a brand new shade.
