A salon quality ombre from the comfort of home.

I’ve been rocking the light silver hair for a while. If you’re interested in how I got that look, head over to the oVertone Pastel Silver Review and Tutorial. But it was time for a change.

I loved how the pastel silver looked and knew I wanted to try the other silvers in the oVertone line. I couldn’t decide which to try first, so naturally I just got them all. Instead of waiting to do each color individually, I opted for an ombre with the Extreme Silver Deep Treatment on top, Vibrant Silver Deep Treatment in the middle, and Pastel Silver Deep Treatment on the bottom.

I know trying to get silver ombre hair by yourself sounds super intimidating, but this tutorial makes it totally doable!

This is the color my hair was when I started. The majority was covered in leftover silver from when I did the oVertone Pastel Silver Review and Tutorial. There was no reason to do a color removal since I was just going to go in with silver products again.

My roots were freshly bleached, so they had a little bit more of a white/yellow tone than the rest of my hair.

And don’t worry if your hair isn’t this color. As long as you are a very pale blonde, you should still be able to get similar results.

Initial Application

I used three colors on my hair for this ombre:

oVertone Pastel Silver Deep Treatment

oVertone Vibrant Silver Deep Treatment

oVertone Extreme Silver Deep Treatment

After the initial application, the deep treatment should be used once a week to keep your color looking fresh.

Maintenance

To maintain your color throughout the week, use these daily conditioners with every wash in the shower:

oVertone Pastel Silver Daily Conditioner

oVertone Vibrant Silver Daily Conditioner

oVertone Extreme Silver Daily Conditioner

Other

Hair tiesYou’ll need 4 hair ties in total.

Parting comb/brush: I used the back of my hair dye brush because it is pointed for this specific purpose.

Gloves (optional)I chose not to use gloves because I feel like I have more control over the color application without them. I had minor staining under my nails after applying the Extreme Silver, but it wasn’t a huge deal for me. If you want to keep your hands completely clean, then I definitely recommend getting some gloves.


Deep Treatment Instructions

Check out this tutorial to learn how to get that perfect silver ombre hair at home with oVertone! It's a DIY ombre made easy. LOVE this hair color!

1. Part your hair where you wear it normally.

You want the ombre to fall as naturally as possible, so you should dye your hair with the part you wear most often. I separated mine down the center because I usually wear my hair curly with a middle part.

2. Get your hair damp.

It’s easiest for me to distribute the color evenly this way. But if you prefer you can also start with dry hair. It’s all about personal preference.

3. Split your hair in two and section out.

Pull your hair forward with one half on either side. Grab your four hair ties and section out your hair. Where you section it depends entirely on where you want the dark, medium, and light silver to start/end. To ensure an even ombre, make sure the elastics on either side of your face are at the same level.

4. Coat the bottom section in oVertone Pastel Silver Deep Treatment.

5. Coat the middle section in oVertone Vibrant Silver Deep Treatment.

You’re probably wondering about the lack of dye under the hair ties. But don’t worry, we’ll get to that soon.

6. Coat the top section in oVertone Extreme Silver Deep Treatment.

7. Remove the bottom two hair ties.

And now you have a hair tie sized chunk of hair without any dye. The easy way to blend? Just take the lighter color and apply it to the colorless section.

Blend the pastel silver up into the vibrant silver instead of the other way around. (You can always add dark over light, but you can’t take away dark.)

Once the pastel silver meets the vibrant silver, rub that part between your fingers until the harsh line disappears. Add more dark or light accordingly until you get your desired blend.

8. Remove the top two hair ties.

Repeat the directions in step 7 but with the vibrant silver and extreme silver. Once you’re done, your hair should look evenly blended and have a clear ombre.

9. Wait 10 minutes and then rinse.

Wash your hair out in the shower until the water runs clear. Style as usual.

Maintenance

oVertone Deep Treatment

Use the deep treatment once a week or whenever your color needs a refresh. I can usually stretch the deep treatment use to every 2 weeks.

oVertone Daily Conditioner

Swap out your regular conditioner with the oVertone daily conditioners. When you’re in the shower, shampoo as usual. Then apply each of the three oVertone conditioners to its corresponding color on your head.

Your conditioner application doesn’t have to be exact. Just try your best to get the colors roughly where they belong. The daily conditioner deposits subtle amounts of color to keep your hair looking fresh between deep treatments. So it won’t muddle your ombre if you don’t blend perfectly.

Final Thoughts

This isn’t my first rodeo with oVertone. I already know I love the brand and their line, so it was no surprise that these colors were another success.

I even had a stranger approach me and ask if my hair was done by Guy Tang. If you haven’t heard of him, he’s a celebrity hairstylist and an all around hair color legend. If that isn’t a testament to the beauty of the oVertone colors and their ability to produce salon-quality results at home, then I don’t know what is!

    Maya I love the silver color on your hair and definitely want it on mine. However my hair is dark brown/auburn not blonde or silver (except at the roots 😉 ) Can I get the same silver ombre results if I’m starting out with dark auburn hair?

      Hi Rhonda,

      Thank you! Unfortunately you will not get this exact silver ombre look if your hair is a darker color to begin with. If you want to achieve this same result you will need to bleach your hair once or twice until you have a light blonde base.

      Hi Shrashti,

      The color holds very well. You will probably want to color your hair with deep treatment every 2 weeks. The deep treatment is $28 for a tub. Between deep treatments use the daily conditioner every time you shower. The daily conditioner is $17 for a bottle.

    Is there anyway to get a short video of the extreme silver section? I don’t quite understand how you’re able to get all your roots with the hair ties in.

      Hi Jessica!

      I covered my roots as best I could with the ties in. At then at the end when I removed the ties I covered any remaining areas on my roots that needed it while being careful not to get any on the medium and light sections. Hope that helps!

      Hi Marjorie,

      Sorry to hear you’re having trouble getting your desired color. Your results are dependent upon what color you start with. Creative colors are very finicky, and if your base color is slightly off, your results won’t be as expected.

      If your hair has a blue tint now, you can follow up with a pastel orange daily conditioner from oVertone. Orange is opposite of blue on the color wheel so it will neutralize/cancel out the blue and give you that grey color you’re after. Hopefully that helps!

    HI Maya,
    Could you have diluted the extreme silver with a colorless conditioner to get to a vibrant or pastel silver?
