From Lady Gaga's cloudy locks to Beth Ditto's new 'do, blue hair color is a definite beauty trend for this summer. Summer is a great time to experiment & add a punch of this cool color to your hair.
Picking Your Shade
There're a wide spectrum of blue shades to choose from, meaning this is a trend that gives you options!!! But the sure-fire way to find out which shade is right for you is to consult a stylist.
Narrow your choice 1st by finding examples of the color you'd like: consider taking in a photo of your favorite color or cut to a stylist.
Next, consider your natural coloring. You want to pick a shade of blue that complements your skin tone. For those with 'cool' skin, finding the 'right' shade of blue'll be a bit easier: pulling off dark to light, cloudy to electric shades'll be fairly easy for you!! For those who've a 'warm' skin tone, dark shades & rich, deep tones'll look stunning.
Finally, try to avoid the purple-y blues: they don't match up well with many skin tones & often're less flattering than rich, dark tones or cloudy shades.
Tips for Maintaining Dyed Blue Hair
Blue is a difficult color to maintain: it's hard to keep it looking vibrant in your hair & even more difficult to completely remove from your hair since blue dyes leave a residue after they fade. These tips'll help you keep your color-treated blue locks looking great!!!
1. Use a color-safe shampoo & conditioner to prevent fast fading. Avoid formulas with sulfates, which can strip color from hair.
2. Every time you wash your hair, the blue color'll fade: it's a fact of life. So try going a few days in between washing your hair. This'll help prevent fast fading.
3. Use cool or warm water when washing color treated hair: hot water strips color.
