My hair is really red (see avatar) and I originally wanted to get it dyed silver but my friend told me that it would just go blonde or possibly peach colored and I don't want that, so, what does everyone here think? I want an out there color. I was thinking electric blue or purple? Anyway, thanks for your input :)

Unless you're ready for the megamassive upkeep of silver hair, I really wouldn't go for it. For your natural hair, it would take at least 1 or even 2 bleaching sessions first before even considering the silver dye. It can fade really quickly too, depending on how you care for it so you would be regularly redying it which can be expensive and damage your hair.

For your hair type, I would possibly go for a really dark blue or a dark green. I can imagine that darker colours are less upkeep than lighter/pastel colours, depending on what you're looking for.

Speaking from experience(I've been dyeing my hair since I was 12, and had silver hair last year. Currently it's pastel pink, if you're wondering.) you're gonna need to bleach the hell out of your hair before you can get any vibrant color. When I had silver hair it lasted a 1.5-2 months, and it faded to a lighter and lighter grey until it just became the white blonde of my bleached hair again.
Hot Topic sells a bunch of hair dyes varying quality, as do Target, Walgreens, Sally Beauty, etc. If I were you I'd get your hair professionally bleached so you don't accidentally damage it.
If you want it to stay silver(or whatever color you can buy shampoo and conditioner made specifically for dyed hair, which'll help it last longer. Another thing that helps is to take slightly colder baths and showers because hot water makes the dye come out quicker.
After you get it done don't shampoo or condition your hair so the color can set. If you don't like a color just wash your hair every day until it comes out and you can start over. :)

There is the album for you guys to check out the hair! They're bad pics but they're all I've got and it's too dark to take another pic.
