As a fake blonde myself, I think the best thing about having fair hair is being able to experiment with trendy colors when you feel like it. You don’t need to remove bleach to try on pink or blue hair. No doubt, that’s what Addison Rae is doing with her new blue hair. After going golden blonde last year, the TikTok-turned-Netflix star is now rocking cool blue highlights that were probably easier to achieve than they look.
Because Rae’s hair was already a ton of dimension, the addition of blue on top ensured that there were darker, shinier chunks all over it. I’m not sure if her colourist gave her the new color or if she was bored at home and decided to take the plunge in her own bathroom. It’s almost like it’s the start of lockdown again with celebrities experimenting with fun hair colors. Well this is not the alone reason it smells a bit of dÃ©jÃ vu right now, but let’s not go into that.
From my experience with fashion colors, I find blue to be one of the most difficult to work with because it doesn’t fade as quickly as others like pink. It can be a good thing if you like it and want it to last for a while. You can go semi-permanent with a product like Good Dye Young Semi Permanent Hair Color in Blue Ruin ($ 19.79 at sally beauty), which lasts 4-6 weeks. Or try a conditioner that deposits pigments that will only last as long as you use it.
I love the Overtone Haircare Semi-Permanent Color Deposit Conditioner ($ 25 on Amazon), which lasts a few washes. The brand also offers a blue tint for brown hair. While you won’t get results as bright as Rae’s, your locks will still have a cool blue tone. Blue for everyone!
