As much as you may love bold hair colors and rainbow hair colors, what about the darker hues of the spectrum? Don’t they deserve some tress love, too? While lighter hair colors may be especially alluring for the warmer months of the year, nobody ever said you can’t rock a dark sultry hair color instead. Think you might be up for a little rebel hair color action? Here, we teach you everything you need to know about the midnight blue hair color trend, as well as how to achieve the beauty look at home. Ready to transform your mane into a midnight blue shade? Read on for everything you need to know.
As with all vibrant hair colors, midnight blue hair will require quite a bit of work to achieve if you’re looking for a permanent hair color. If you’re starting with a dark base color, you’ll need to bleach your hair first so that the color will show up. That being said, you do have options—you can visit a colorist or you can DIY if you’re cool with a more temporary hair color transformation. The choice is up to you!
It’s time to use the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Semi-Permanent Hair Color in Midnight Blue! The greatest thing about this semi-permanent hair color is that it’s designed for brown hair, meaning that you won’t have to pre-lighten your hair in order for it to show up. If you decide to use this product, you’ll want to shampoo and dry your hair fully first, then apply the product onto desired areas (avoiding the scalp), saturating your hair (make sure to wear the included gloves). Leave the color on for 15-30 minutes for best results, then rinse hair thoroughly with water.
It’s no secret that midnight blue hair color looks gorgeous all on its own, but what about taking it up a notch? If you want to add a little colorful allure to your dark blue mane, consider adding some silver streaks or rainbow ends. Believe it or not, it’s a lot easier than you might think to add these color accents to your mane. Simply stock up on the L’Oréal Paris Colorista 1-Day Spray in your shades of choice and spritz accordingly.
Colored your hair midnight blue? Congrats! Now it’s time to care for your strands the right way. That means using a system of shampoo and conditioner formulated for color-treated hair, like the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Repair & Defend Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris EverPure Repair & Defend Conditioner. Midnight blue hair in need a little extra love? Reach for a hair mask for added conditioning and detangling. Once or twice a week, swap out the conditioner for the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Repair Remedy Balm.
Whenever you’re working with color-treated hair, it’s important to keep the heat styling to a minimum, and, when you absolutely must turn the power on, be sure to keep the temperature turned down. Try pairing your midnight blue hair with beachy waves by using the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Wave Swept Spray. Designed to transform your strands into post-beach day perfection, just a few spritzes can take your midnight blue hair from drab to fab. To further enhance the look of your pretty new ‘do, consider weaving a couple accent braids into your mane or pinning your face-framing strands back for a beautifully effortless end look. To ensure that your midnight blue hair stays in place, finish it off with a quick spritz of the L’Oréal Paris Elnett Precious Oil Satin Hairspray. Voila!
