How To Get Pastel Blue Hair

LIVE Colour Hair Dye from Schwarzkopf

Time to add another Pin to your ‘oh em gee must try hairspo’ Pinterest board (as if we didn’t have enough already!),because the pastel blue look is everything RN. Scrap your evening plans as we’ve dished the deets on how to add some seriously blissful blue to your ‘do.

Top Tip:
For the best blue results, your hair will need to be light blonde so you’ll need to pre-lighten if you’re not naturally blessed with this colour. If you have a lot of yellow/orange tone in your hair, blue shades can sometimes turn more of a green colour so always do a strand test to make sure you’re happy with the results!

Temporary pastel blue shades:

For a temporary baby blue shade look no further than the LIVE Pastel Spray in Icy Blue. Lasting up to 3 washes, the LIVE Pastel Sprays are a great way to have a quick change up of look for the holidays or a special event. The easy-to-use spray formula can be applied to dry or damp hair (keep some paper towels handy to blot up excess colour) and are leave-in, so you just need to blow-dry to finish.

The results? These can vary depending on your individual hair type and history. Our blogger Emily (below) had highlighted blonde hair. You can see in the after pic how the temporary spray takes differently to the darker shades in her hair i.e it cannot cover them. In this instance, the tones in her blonde hair helped turn the shade slightly more lavender/grey blue.
If you want a completely even colour and you’re not a natural light blonde, you will need to pre-lighten all over and in general, the more colour you spray on, the more intense the result. We recommend testing the spray a couple of times into a paper towel to get used to the delivery!

You can also mix up a pastel blue shade using our LIVE Ultra Brights or Pastel Electric Blue. Simply add 2 pea-sizes of Colour Cream to the in-pack conditioner and mix in a non-metallic bowl. The colour you mix up will be a good indication of the results you’ll achieve. Apply to damp hair for a couple of minutes and rinse. The same applies again in terms of your starting shade – the blonder you are, the better the results.
