It’s the color of the ocean, it’s the color of the sky. And now, it can be the color of your hair! Blue is a magical shade that can transform you from an ordinary human being to an extraordinary mythical goddess. Blue ombre hair looks especially stunning and ensures that you become the center of attention in every room you walk into. And with the sudden advent of crazy colored hair all over the world, you don’t even need to worry about looking too out of place with your blue ombre hair!
But, before we get into how many awesome ways you can style your blue ombre, let’s first look at how you can actually do it yourself. A word of advice here though – we always suggest getting your hair colored by a professional hairdresser as it requires a ton of skill to get it right.
How To Do Blue Ombre In Your Hair At Home
What You Need
- Old towel/t-shirt
- Paddle brush
- Sectioning clips
- Hair bleaching kit
- Blue hair color
- Rubber gloves
- Hair coloring brush
What To Do
- Wear an old t-shirt or drape an old towel around your shoulders to prevent your clothes from getting stained, and put on your gloves.
- Brush out all the knots and tangles from your hair thoroughly.
- Mix your bleach in a glass bowl, according to the instructions given on the box.
- Leaving out the hair at the nape of your neck, section away all the hair at the top of your head.
- Start applying bleach to this loose section from the ends and pulling it up the length of your hair with your fingers. Make sure you put more bleach at the very ends and stop right below your jawline.
- Keep taking out more hair from the hair sectioned on top and apply bleach to it in the same manner until you’ve got it on all of your hair.
- Remove bleach from a small section of hair every 15 minutes to check if it has lightened to your desired shade. Don’t leave it on for more than 40 minutes. If you have super dark hair, you will have to bleach it once more a week later to lighten it to your desired shade. But, if you decide to use Olaplex or any other bond-building treatment, you can go for a second round of bleaching immediately.
- Wash, shampoo and blowdry your hair.
- Mix your blue hair color in a bowl following the instructions given on the box.
- Section off your hair in any manner you find convenient.
- Apply the color on all the bleached sections of your hair and pull it up a little above the fade line created by your bleach. Leave it on for the duration of time indicated on the box.
- Wash off the blue hair color till the water runs clear before shampooing and conditioning it with color safe products.
Well, now that you’ve successfully done a blue on your hair, let’s look at the many gorgeous ways that you can customize it!
