Tangled Up in Blue

Tangled Up in Blue!


The blue hair trend came off the back of the smoky grey hair colour trend of 2017 and its only going to get bolder and deeper this year, by August it is going to go electric blue, fading back to blue denim in 2019, as demonstrated at Paris Fashion Week for Spring/Summer 2018.

Key designers such as Tibi, Fendi & Tom Ford were at the helm of this, having a few of their signature models demonstrating this hair trend.

Book in for a Hair Colour Consultation

Pre-Lightening Is Essential

The use of Wellaplex when lightening your hair will help to achieve the required lift without compromising your hair’s condition, speak to your local FG Colour Specialist about the healthiest way to achieve your hair goals.

Tip  5

Heat Defence

Heat has the ability to pull colour out of your hair, so we advise against using heat on your hair, but ensure you use heat protection on your hair whenever you need to use styling tools, and this will help to avoid colour fade.

Tip  6

Say Goodbye to White Towels!

Avoid using white towels – the colour will run into the towel and stain it!

This is a playful colour trend and doesn’t have to be forever, it can be as soft or as electric as you desire! But don’t be afraid to embrace the blue, bold is the new black!
