How To Wear Black Blue Hair Like A Boss
When we’ve got a craving for something grungy and a bit sultry, we think of super cool, black blue hair. Megan Niccolls, Artistic Director Voodou Liverpool is our colour-loving guru for all things bright, talking us through this deep shade, and advising us on the best ways to wear black blue hair, and why it’s the right colour to try for all your dark based hair babes out there!
What Is Blue Black Hair?
Blue black hair is that subtle sheen of blue colour that shines on the deepest of black hair. A high-shine colour like the night sky. There are a variety of ways you can introduce a black blue tone into your hair, whether it be with a pop of blue colour - try a black base with bright blue highlights - or a hot vivid tint like a contrasting black to a blue ombre. If you’re looking to take on the full commitment of black blue hair, ask your hairdresser for a bluey-black colour melt, transforming your locks into a moonlight sky! Whatever technique you opt for, your hair will look luscious and enriched, transforming in different lighting to give your locks dimension and lustrous shine.
Who Suits Blue Black Hair?
Blue black hair is a naturally flattering colour, and suits most tones. It’s ideal for brunettes and those with dark hair, making it possible to add colour without any bleaching or pre-lightening necessary - a real bonus for us girls who never get to dip into the world of colour without sacrificing our dark hue first.
If this all sounds like a bit of you, it might be time to dial up your stylist and book in for a new blue you!
