Silver hair goal finaly reached! UPDATE, before and after silver toning pics

Trusted Member Registered

Ok so my hair isn't as long as I would like it, but I've been growing it out from a pixie cut (which is why I haven't been on here for a while...  *waves* hi everyone!) and it's finally what I would call long, so yay!
The bottom half of my hair is a silvery color and the top half is my natural color. I plan on bleaching more of my natural hair  in time.
It's a little bit blueish and I'm hoping to get to a light silver in time for my wedding (about a month or so away only!).  It's not quite how I would like it yet, but all in all I'm pleased with it and happy with the growth. So far I don't notice any difference in the bleached hair growth from my natural hair. I started bleaching it once it got to just above shoulder length. Ignore the blonde roots, I need to tone them.

I used a diluted MP unltraviolet and rockabilly blue to tone. More ultraviolet than rockabilly. Rockabilly is just a tiny dab.

UPDATE, I bleached more of my hair, so that now just the front is virgin. It's definitely not pale yellow yet. I will bleach bath from here but I'm going to leave it 6-8 weeks before doing so. Definitely no sooner than 1 month.
I'm surprised at how well this toner mix worked which is why I'm adding pics. You can see there are golden tones still, and no they didn't tone out completely but you can see it looks pretty good considering how dark my base is. It's definitely a silvery color.  Again, I used MP ultraviolet and a tiny dab of rockabilly. I was generous with the ultraviolet and left it on for 30 min. Also, I find that if I condition my hair (non-silicone conditioner) let dry, then apply toner, I get a much more even base. The pictures are a little more forgiving than real life, in person there is slightly more gold.

That's a lovely silver. What dye did you use?
