a silver tone could easily be accomplished by just using grey colors..


if you put actually metallics in it, its going to look like the person has real metal hair


you may not want that


so, start with your lowest color (maybe something like a dark grey) then work up higher, until the final layer is white..


use small brushes!..lol

Also, if you feel like it, you can use those pearlescent paint thingies you can get from most craft/hobby stores.


Me, I'd rather go with subtle greys, as prophet118 suggests, but then again, it's up to you.
