25 Blue Curly Hair Ideas for Women (Photos)

Hipster-vibe, curly blue hair.

The blue curly hair for women trend is in a big upward trajectory right now and has been since early 2011.  I find this really interesting (I find all trends interesting).  What happened in 2011 to start a major upward trend with blue, curly hair?  I don’t know, but if it’s a hairstyle you’re contemplating, you’re not alone.

Check out our photo gallery showcasing many examples of women with blue curly hair (long and short).

🌊r i p • t i d e 🌊 . Cool and calm. 😌 this color always makes me feel mellow. It's been a minute since I've seen my favorite unicorn of a client @otterroundtheworld Tiffany blue for Tiffany herself✨ picture previous to this was her hair before after waiting over 4 months or so. Back to back foils, using @brazilianbondbuilder to keep her hair strong, for the actual color, I used @joicointensity for her roots and @pravana pastels everywhere else. So. In.

Bob with loose, heated curls in a Tiffany Blue shade. This color also works well on straight hair, so it definitely is a win-win situation.

Long and curly hair in white and pastel blue tones. This one is a great option if you are naturally blonde because achieving a color this light requires a lot of bleaching.

This messy upstyle has some earthy feels in it as it combines metallic blue, light brown and gray tones together.

This hairstyle is a mashup of purple and blue tones. Looks really subtle but still classy.

I posted a little teaser yesterday of an up close shot of this rich galaxy ombré, but here's the full shot! @amandawalczak8 looks like such a babe with her long locks dipped in 4 shades of violet and blue! That color saturation is so deep, I won't have to see this lovely lady for a touch up for another 10 weeks! My regular root retouch clients are in every 3-6 weeks, so mermaid hair is actually lower maintenance than you would think IF you maintain it at home! @olaplex is a must to prep the hair for healthy coloring, and washing once or twice a week in cold water using @Pravana Vivids shampoo & conditioner makes all the difference in the world! 🌈 #PinupJordan #MermaidLounge #Mermaid #Mermaidhair #hair #haircut #hairsalon #hairstylist #hairstyle #longhair #purple #purplehair #pink #pinkhair #curls #curlyhair #stylist #galaxy #galaxyhair #olaplex #haircolor #haircolour #hairdye #hairdresser #albany #albanyny #schenectady
