10 Blue Hair Color Ideas for Autumn

The blue hair trend you’ve got to try!

Blue hair is one of our favorite hair colors for fall for many reasons. For one, it’s so dramatically different than the typical warm tones that we typically see during this season. We also love how blue hair has been popping up more and more lately from our Instagram feeds to NYFW where we were drooling over street style hairstyles that we discovered in fun shades of dark and light blues. Plus, fall is such a great season for change where going for a bold color, like blue, seems fitting for the cooler months. So, if you’ve been daydreaming about changing up your look and going for something bright and bold, blue might just be for you. Read on for lots of blue hair inspiration in 10 of our favorite looks.

10 Best Blue Hair Colors

1. Navy Blue

Navy blue hair paired with a bowl cut is giving us serious ’70s throwback vibes. If your hair is naturally dark, going for a darker navy blue will ease any growing out roots anxiety.

2. Cobalt Blue

For a dazzling bright shade, try out this fun cobalt blue. It’s bright enough not to read as a dark blue, but it’s not in the pastel camp either. This shade is a good choice for someone who wants an extra edge to their look. Keep your new blue hair healthy by doing a weekly hair mask with the Dove Nutritive Solutions Intensive Repair Deep Treatment Mask.

3. Baby Blue and Pink

This cotton candy combination is one of our favorites because it’s so multifaceted. Show off the different colors in your hair with french braided pigtails that’s sure to gorgeously accentuate your face.

4. Blue/Green Highlights

A good way to try out blue hair is to opt for some blue/green hair highlights. This low-commitment option is a fun way to try out the trend as you experiment with some face-framing highlights or those that focus on the tips of your hair.

5. Denim Blue

Denim doesn’t have to be a fashion only style staple. Choosing a medium cool blue with white streaks gives the perfect denim look to your braids. Styling your hair into a big top bun is also a great way to show off your edgy new blue hair color.

6. Sky Blue

To keep things interesting, layer multiple shades of blue in your hair. This light blue to darker blue monochrome look is a stunner. If you have lighter roots we suggest you keep the lighter blue towards the roots and layer to a darker blue through the ends.

7. Mermaid Light Blue

For a high fashion look, try this mermaid light blue. Incorporating greens with blue tones keeps this blue light and airy. Add to your beachy look by air-drying your hair and use some of the TRESemmé Perfectly (Un)Done Sea Salt Spray for a tousled, texurized look.

8. Light Gray-Blue

If you’ve been rocking the gray hair trend, freshen your color with a wash of blue. Using a temporary color will keep your gray hair color intact. This icy shade is perfect for the colder months.

Ombre Blue hair is always a good idea

9. Blue Ombré

Blue ombré is one of our favorite ways to test out the blue hair trend. Going for a bright blue shade like this one just on the ends of your hair may wash out faster than you would like so make sure to wash your hair with a color-safe shampoo and conditioner, like the Suave Professionals Color Protection Shampoo and the Suave Professionals Color Protection Conditioner.
