If you’re looking for a mane change, switching things up with an on-trend blue hair color is the perfect way to make a bold statement. To give this hair color trend a try, it’s all about finding the shade of blue hair dye that best complements your skin tone. Whether you decide to go for vibrant royal blue hair or keep things subtle with blue-black hair, you may just discover your blue hair color match below.
When it comes to dyeing your hair with a colorful hue, it’s important to pick one that flatters your skin tone. Keep in mind that going blue is a dramatic change. When you do rainbow-colored hair, you’ll have to bleach your strands first—and the darker your base, the more involved the process will be. It could even take multiple sessions to get the blue color of your dreams. So, while it’s possible to DIY the trend at home, if you want a drastic mane makeover, your best bet is to go to a professional colorist to ensure your blue hue is everything you’re envisioning.
Those that have pale, porcelain skin can choose one of two extremes. You can either go all out with an ocean-inspired teal hair color or keep things subtle with light blue hair.
For teal hair color: Use the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Semi-Permanent Hair Color in Teal. The statement-making shade can help keep your complexion from falling flat, without washing you out or overpowering your features.
For pastel blue hair color: Try the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Hair Makeup Temporary 1-Day Hair Color Spray in Pastel Blue. A baby blue is just soft enough to help complement your skin’s coloring. This shade will make for a stunning style, and if you have blue eyes, you’ll look reminiscent of an ice queen. For a similar effect, you can also give an icy silver-blue hair color a try with the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Hair Makeup Temporary 1-Day Hair Color in Silver Blue.
If you have a medium skin tone, you can play around a bit with your blue hue. Give a cobalt blue hair color a try; or as an alternative to test the waters, try black hair with blue highlights.
For cobalt blue hair color: Give the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Hair Makeup Temporary 1-Day Hair Color in Blue a whirl. For people with medium-toned skin, a cobalt color strikes just the right balance between dramatic and wearable.
For cobalt blue tips: Experiment with the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Hair Makeup Temporary 1-Day Hair Color Spray in Blue. You can also use this temporary hair color spray to give yourself blue ombré hair.
Those with a rich, dark skin tone should opt for a blue hair color that will beautifully complement their deep complexion. We’re fans of navy-inspired colors like midnight blue hair and denim hair.
For a midnight hair color: Try the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Semi-Permanent Hair Color in Midnight Blue. This dark blue hair color is basically the new black—literally, because it’s near-black in color with a hint of those on-trend blue undertones. Midnight blue can create a harsh contrast against lighter skin tones, but that isn’t a problem for those with a deep complexion. In fact, if you have naturally dark hair and a dark skin tone to match, you’re a perfect fit for this hue. At first glance, the midnight blue might appear black or deep brown, but when your locks catch the light, the blue will shine through.
For a denim hair color: Use the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Semi-Permanent Hair Color in Indigo. This navy blue hair color has hints of purple to resemble your favorite worn-out pair of blue jeans.
Like any colored hair, your new hue will require special care and attention. Here are three hair care tips to take note of.
Switch to a system of shampoo, conditioner, and a hair mask specifically formulated for color-treated hair. Try the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Color Vibrancy Protecting Shampoo, L’Oréal Paris Elvive Color Vibrancy Protecting Conditioner, and L’Oréal Paris Elvive Color Vibrancy Repair and Protect Balm.
Try to keep your use of heat-styling tools to a minimum. Instead, for a heat-free style, apply a dime-sized amount of the L’Oréal Paris Studio Line Overworked Hair Putty to dry hair, then scrunch.
Regardless of what shade of blue you dye your hair, it’s going to look pretty obvious when your roots start growing in. Book appointments with your colorist in advance—or keep a box of at-home hair color stocked in your bathroom—so you’re not scrambling to touch up your color.
