1. Cobalt blue

If you have naturally dark hair and you’re not comfortable jumping to bright shades yet, try cobalt blue. It’s dark enough to blend seamlessly with black or brown hair yet still noticeable. You can get cobalt blue as highlights or have your entire hair dyed with it.

Editor’s tip: Use Cream Silk Color Protect Conditioner to wash dyed hair. This will prevent dryness and dullness while helping enhance the color of your hair.

2. Teal

Dreaming of becoming a mermaid? You can’t grow a tail, but you can have mermaid hair by dyeing your tresses teal. This color looks dreamy—even magical—so you’ll feel like you’re fulfilling your childhood fantasy. You might even want to wear teal contact lenses to match your hair.

Editor’s tip: Frequent coloring may damage your locks. Treat your hair to a weekly application of TONI&GUY Damage Repair Mask to prevent this.

3. Ice blue

Got a pale complexion? Ice blue will look great on you. With this color, you’ll give off an artsy or kawaii vibe. If you work in the creative profession, you might want to consider getting this shade of blue hair. Accentuate with a bold lip color to keep your facial features from being washed out.

4. Ombre blue

You can get blue hair and blend it with your natural hair color through balayage highlights, or combine pale blue with blonde hair and create an ombre effect. The latter will allow you to create a more seamless transition to light blue if you bleach your naturally dark hair and make it blonde. Just visit a trusted salon with experienced stylists so you will get the hair color that you want.

Editor’s tip: Add texture to light hair to keep it from looking flat. Spritz TONI&GUY Sea Salt Texturising Spray to achieve this.

5. Blue streaks

Want blue in small doses? Get highlights or streaks. Dye small sections of your hair with blue and let the color be distributed evenly all throughout your hair. This ‘do is low maintenance because you don’t need to retouch your roots immediately once your hair starts growing. You can just let the color blend in.

Editor’s tip: Keep hair shiny by applying a drop of TONI&GUY High Shine Serum Drops on your hair after styling.
