Currently Trending: Blue Hair

One of my signatures is my long dirty-blonde locks—I can’t imagine myself without it! But lately I’ve been seeing a resurgence of blue hair and I have to say, I’m totally loving it.

Lea Seydoux’s spin on the trend is the one that initially caught my eye. The French actress had dyed it for her role in the controversial Palme d’Or winning film Blue is the Warmest Color.   I’m surprising how delicate this color looks- instead of being in-your-face, the blue contrasts beautifully with her skin tone and really brings out her eyes.

In addition, my favorite It girl of the moment Lily Collins recently donned a blue wig for M83’s “Claudia Lewis” music video.

Paired with minimal makeup, the bright hair looks sleek and trendy instead of tacky and try-hard.

I would honestly probably never go full-on blue, but I might try the trend out with temporary dip-dye or a small streak buried in my layers.  What do you think; could I pull it off as well as these trendy girls?
