Black and blue hair is one of the hottest hair color trends to hit 2020. And we have to admit, we’re definitely a fan of this gorgeous look. That’s because blue highlights can add a major pop to black hair. Whether you already have a black base or would need to DIY a new onyx mane, we’d say black hair with blue highlights is at the top of the need-to-try list. Want to learn more about the trend? Below, we’re sharing a few ways to try blue highlights on black hair, including adding blue tips to your tresses.
There’s just something super-pretty and mermaid-esque about blue and black hair. Ready to give this look a try and blend blue highlights into a black base? Well, you have a couple of options. You can get the look by visiting a professional colorist at a salon or DIYing it at home. If you’re comfortable with at-home hair color kits, then go ahead and have fun! But if you’re a color newbie, it might be a good idea to seek out the help of a pro at a salon.
If you go the pro route, bring in some photos of what you’re hoping your hair color will look like to help ensure that you leave your appointment happy. A pro can also help you determine which shade of blue will complement your features best—and there are quite a few shades of blue out there!
If you decide you’d like to try your hand at coloring your hair at home, know that you’re going to need to bleach your black hair first so that the blue color will actually show up. Try the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Bleach and follow the directions on the box. Then it’s time to paint your hair blue! Use the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Semi-Permanent Hair Color in Blue or Indigo to help bring your black hair with blue tips to life.
If you’re not quite ready to rock blue highlights on the reg, you’re in luck! You can use the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Hair Makeup Temporary 1-Day Hair Color Spray in Blue or Pastel Blue or the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Hair Makeup Temporary 1-Day Hair Color in Silver Blue, Blue, or Moonstone to give this hair color trend a temporary spin. Once the day is over, you can wash the blue color out of your hair and try a whole new hair color trend on for size the very next day.
When it comes to blue highlights on black hair, there isn’t a singular look that defines the trend. There are a number of ways to add blue strands to your black hair. Need ideas? Below, find three trending options.
Dip dye hair is making a major comeback this year, so it should come as no surprise that black hair with blue tips is first on our list. This is a great option for those who want to rock a black and blue hair combo for a bit but plan to part ways with the fun color at their next haircut.
Want your blue highlights to really pop? Consider a statement-making blue money piece. This technique involves placing your blue highlights only at the very front of your mane, so they frame your face.
Want subtle yet all-over blue highlights? Try blue balayage. As you probably already know, the balayage highlighting technique is all about placing your highlights where the sun would naturally hit. Head to the pros for this one, and have your colorist expertly paint blue highlights throughout your mane.
Once you’ve colored your hair, you may want to switch up your hair care routine to help keep your mane in tip-top shape. Follow the below advice—and go ahead and show off those beautiful blue highlights!
It’s time to put your regular shampoo and conditioner aside in favor of ones that are specifically formulated for color-treated hair. Try the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Repair & Defend Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris EverPure Repair & Defend Conditioner. Gently massage the shampoo onto wet hair in the shower, then rinse and follow up with the conditioner. Leave the conditioner on for one to two minutes, then rinse again.
Once or twice a week, swap out the above conditioner for the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Repair Remedy Balm. After shampooing, apply the hair mask and leave it on for three to five minutes before rinsing.
A super-hot shower might feel relaxing, but it can strip your hair of essential oils, leaving it feeling drier and looking duller, so lower the dial and wash your hair in lukewarm water instead.
Sure, sleek hair is one of your go-to styles, but blue and black hair looks particularly awesome when paired with some texture. So, put down your heat tools and embrace the hair you’ve been given! Want beachy waves? You don’t need to be anywhere near the ocean. Just spritz a wave spray onto towel-dried hair, braid your mane, and let it air dry. When your strands are dry, remove the braid to reveal perfect beach waves.
If you absolutely can’t bear to skip out on heat styling in favor of an air-dried style, it’s essential that you don’t apply any heat to your hair before using a heat-protective spray like the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray. This heat protectant is designed to protect hair up to 450 degrees for a sleek look that lasts for days on end.
Don’t have a naturally black mane? Not a problem. Consider putting one of Our 12 Best Black Hair Dyes for 2020 to use before highlighting your hair.
