Looking for a mane change? If your answer is yes, then why not try a fun blue hair color? Yep, blue hair is officially on-trend for winter 2020, and anyone can pull it off! It’s all about finding the shade of blue hair dye that’ll complement your skin tone the best. Want to give this hair color trend a try? Whether you decide to go for a vibrant cobalt hue or keep things subtle with a dark blue hair color, your blue hair color match is below.

THE BEST SHADE OF BLUE HAIR FOR YOUR SKIN TONE

When it comes to coloring your hair with a colorful hue, it’s important to pick one that flatters your skin tone. Just 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!

THE BEST SHADE OF BLUE HAIR FOR FAIR SKIN TONES

When was the last time someone compared you to a porcelain doll? If you have a fair skin tone, you can either go all out with an ocean-inspired teal hair color or keep things subtle with a pastel blue shade.

For a 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 a pastel blue hair color…use 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. Paired with blue eyes, this shade will make for a stunning style, reminiscent of an ice queen.

THE BEST SHADE OF BLUE HAIR FOR MEDIUM SKIN TONES

Do you have a medium skin tone? If so, give a cobalt blue hue a try, or as an alternative to test the waters, try cobalt blue tips or blue ombré hair!

For a cobalt blue hair color…use the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Hair Makeup Temporary 1-Day Hair Color in Blue. A cobalt color strikes just the right balance between dramatic and wearable on people with medium skin.

For cobalt blue tips…use 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.

THE BEST SHADE OF BLUE HAIR FOR DEEP SKIN TONES

Have a rich, dark skin tone? Opt for a blue hue that will beautifully complement your deep complexion. We’re fans of midnight blue and denim hair!

For a midnight hair color…use the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Semi-Permanent Hair Color in Midnight Blue. This deep blue shade is basically the new black. While midnight blue might be a tad too much for those with lighter skin tones, if you have naturally dark hair and a deep skin tone, 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 color has hints of purple to resemble your favorite worn-out pair of blue jeans.

HOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR BLUE HUE

Like any colored hair, your new hue will require special care and attention. Here are three hair care tips to take note of.

TIP #1: SWAP YOUR HAIR CARE SYSTEM

Switch to a system of shampoo, conditioner, and hair mask specifically formulated for color-treated hair. Try the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Color Vibrancy Protecting ShampooL’Oréal Paris Elvive Color Vibrancy Protecting Conditioner, and L’Oréal Paris Elvive Color Vibrancy Repair and Protect Balm.

TIP #2: TURN DOWN THE HEAT

Try to keep your use of heat styling tools to a minimum. Instead, for a heat-free style, apply a dime-size amount of the L’Oréal Paris Studio Line Overworked Hair Putty to dry hair, then scrunch.

TIP #3: SCHEDULE REGULAR TOUCH-UPS

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 that you’re not scrambling to touch up your color.
