Denim Blue & Dark Blue
The dark and light colors of blue were created by hairstylist Albee Chan of Singapore.
“For the ombre/balayage technique, it’s recommended to do some styling like a wave or curl to increase the movement and dynamics of the hair,” says Chan.
She also wants you to understand that the hair needs to be bleached 1-2 rounds to achieve the color (especially Asian hair). Chan adds, “the damage caused by bleaching will make the hair drier or even cause breakage.”
Blue, Green, and Purple Balayage
This blue, green, and purple balayage were created by hair color specialist Kristinine Gibb of Canada.

She adds, “in my experience, I find that the young tend to like the very loud bright colors whereas middle-aged women prefer deeper tones that are still very fun colors. For mature women, I find they tend to choose pastels, which is fantastic because they don’t typically last for very long making it uncommitted fun.”

She explains, “this look requires sulfate-free and paraben-free color safe shampoo and conditioners to ensure the richness of the color remains as long as possible. These vivid colors tend to wash out a bit faster than permanent color resulting in more frequent salon visits to keep it freshened up.”
Lilac and Silver Blue
The color is the dark depth of the galaxy transition with the stars and the purple cosmic rays going throughout. It was created by balayage specialist and stylist Michael Bargallo of Chesapeake, VA.
“Creative coloring needs to be maintained every 6-8 weeks to keep the color refresh,” says Bargallo. “You also have to consider the hair type and the condition of the hair! Always ask for a 2-year history of the hair to see if the hair can achieve the color the client is looking for.”
