Christmas is almost here and there is so much to be excited about! The food, the presents, the long overdue time with family, and the good old holiday spirit that brings out the best in everyone. But the one thing that has got us extra pumped is holiday hair.

Silver hair has turned into something much larger than a trend. Even though a lot of women have started rocking this color, we just can’t seem to get enough of it. That’s why we’ve put together this list of 21 awe-inspiring silver hair looks that will make you want to “go gray” this Christmas.

While gray by itself is an amazing color, this glorious root melt incorporates some really subtle shades of aqua, bringing the cool tones to life. You don’t even have to get touch-ups if you’re a natural brunette because the dark roots create a beautiful contrast that wraps this look up perfectly.

2. Silver And Periwinkle
