10 Reasons Why You Should Try Blue Hair Colour At Least Once in Your Life

Published on Apr 10, 2017

There are 7 colours of the rainbow but out of the 7, blue is our favourite.

It is the colour of lakes, rivers, oceans, and the sky... just looking at the colour makes us calm. 

In the last couple of months, we're seeing a huge interest in blue hair colours and here are 10 reasons why it has become the trending hair colour towards the end of 2017!

1. It works well with Asian skin tones

When it comes to trendy hair colours, many hues might not suit Asian skin tones as they tend to make us look sallow-skinned. Not with blue hair though. Whether you are of a lighter or darker skin tone, there will be a shade of blue for you.

Blue complements darker skin tones well so you don't have to worry about looking washed out. If you are still hesitant about whether your favourite shade of blue is going to suit you, stick to highlights, dip-dyed ends or the peek-a-boo style. This way, you can try the colour out before going all out.

You are not just limited to a head full of blue hair when you go blue. Since blue complements most colours, you can mix it up for a different look to stand out from the crowd.

Blue-black hair is one of those colours that you might be able to get away with at work. The richness of the deep blue makes it look almost like black hair yet you'll be rockin' a cool blue.

You might have to stick to dark blues if you want an office friendly look but if your working environment is less conservative, dark grey or silver toned blues are worth a try.
