If there were ever a must-try hairstyle, that would be the blue ombre hair. The last few years have seen the rise of ombre hair, in general.
And we must say, it’s so hard to resist its pull! Consequently, we compiled a comprehensive guide for all things blue ombre! Slide and see them all and prepare to get inspired!
1. The Classic Blue Ombre Hair
We’re starting off with the classic blue ombre hair. All you need to do for this one is to dye your hair in a simple, basic blue shade of your choosing.
Remember that, in order for this to actually turn out like this, you need to first bleach your hair.
2. Blue and Green Balayage
If you’re feeling a bit bolder, you can try to combine blue and green. Here is a wonderful idea for blue combined with seaweed green to get an awesome balayage.
3. Mid Length Blues
4. Ice Blue Ombre
Ombre hair can go the other way around as well. Call it reverse ombre.
This means that instead of lighter shades on top and darker toward the tips, you can dye your hair darker at the roots and an icy shade of blue at the bottom.
5. Silver and Blue Color Melt
Color melt is a hair dyeing technique that is basically exactly what you expect it to be. You choose two colors for your hair, one on the top and one on the bottom.
Then, you cleverly dye the first one to look as if it’s melting into the second shade. And voila, color dye hair!
6. Blue Ombre Bob
Many people think that blue ombre is for long hair only. They are wrong and here is an example which proves just that!
This amazing haircut and dye job is purple at the roots and then turns blue as it goes down the length of the hair. We also love the little top knot.
7. Brown to Pastel Blue Hair
Another common misconception is that blue can only be matched with certain complementary colors. Again, that is not correct. This is a brown and pastel blue ombre hair or more like a match made in hair heaven.
8. Blue and Sea Foam
Did you ever notice how the sea is lightly colored near the shore and darker and darker as you progress off the coast? Use this as inspiration for your next ombre job and rock it!
9. Three Rose Buns Ombre
One marvelous way of showcasing your blue ombre hair is by sporting this amazing hairdo. It consists of three simple braids that have been twisted to look like a crown of roses at the back of your head.
10. Neutral Gray and Blue Ombre Hair
We fell in love with this shoulder-length wavy haircut and decided to share it with you! It’s a combination of blue and gray in a tangled mess of bedhead hair that will showcase your natural beauty.
11. The Blue Under Layer
Here is an unconventional way of sporting blue hair. If you don’t want to go all blue or if your job doesn’t allow it, for example, you can always save the shade for your under layer.
By getting this dye job, you’ll be able to hide it, if need be. Your cool hair color will only be visible when you tie your hair up and show it off!
12. Mermaid Blue Hair
If Ariel was a hipster and she lived in our day and age, this is what her hair would have probably looked like.
This is the perfect shade of seafoam blue with a just a few curls barely visible at the end of that simple ponytail. Mermaid hair at its best!
13. Pink and Blue Ombre Hair
What goes better with cotton candy blue than bubble gum pink? Add a gorgeous hair accessory such as this half-moon silver one, and you will look like a princess no matter where you go!
14. Hippie Blue Ombre Hair
There are so many interesting things going on with this hairstyle that we don’t even know where to begin.
You have the natural brown, the different shades of ombre blue, a few green strands, and, of course, the hippie headband.
15. Purple and Blue Hair
The amazing thing about this blue ombre is that you can match your makeup to it. Take a cue from this lovely lady who went for purple and blue sparkly eyeshadow and a perfect matte purple lip.

19. The Alice in Wonderland
Hair color mix, big, white ribbon, and braid combined make this the perfect Alice in Wonderland inspired ‘do. The only difference is that, instead of a schoolgirl, you will look like the powerful woman you want to be.

What comes after Wonderland? Candyland, of course! Or, at least, this is how we would like things to go.
Here are the colors you need for this hairstyle: bubble gum pink, soft orchid purple, blue, ink, pastel turquoise, light neon green, and icy sea foam.

26. Street Queen
Baseball cap included, this look is gorgeous. It’s a combination of neon-photo blue with light indigo and just a touch of purple here and there. Keep the eye makeup to a minimum but go for a striking lip.
27. Winter Blues
Do you go through the winter blues every time the cold season hits? How about, this year, instead of wallowing in them, you instead used those winter blues as an inspiration for the color of your hair, like above?
28. Three for Blue Ombre Hair
This three-tiered hair dye job has us all in a daze. It starts off with cherry cola red on top, goes for a soft, yet dark purple in the middle, and ends in deep denim blue at the bottom.
The oversized white ribbon goes tie everything in together perfectly!
29. Barely Visible Blue
Blue can be strong and bold, but it can also be shy. Just like these amazingly soft peekaboos. The hair has been dyed a natural brown color which gives way to a few blue strands peeking out from underneath it.
30. Dark Blue Roots Ombre Hair
Just a heads up! This hair color will require a massive amount of bleaching before you get started. Therefore, we recommend you make an appointment to see your hairdresser, as it can be very easy to mess this up.

31. Upside Down Melt
Why did we call this one upside down? Because, instead of the blonde, which is on top, melting into the blue, you can see that the inky shade seems to be climbing into the dirty blonde.
32. Feminine Blue Ombre
Despite its being a cold color, blue can also become very feminine if you know how to style it properly. Go for a dark or Duke blue combined with lighter ends of the same shade plus some beach waves.
33. Two Tone – The Half and Half Way
Another type of blue ombre hair is the two-tone. Instead of having your upper color melt or drip into the bottom one, you dye your hair half and half so that you can clearly see where one stops and the other begins.
34. The Short Bob
Celebrities have endorsed the blue ombre hair trend as well. For example, here is Kendell Jenner on the red carpet sporting a choppy asymmetrical bob, ombred into a spectacular shade of blue-green.

Us the night sky as source of inspiration for this example of blue ombre. It’s dark, cold, and steely, but also with a bit of blue around the edges, which gives it its unique sense of beauty.
36. The Oversized Ponytail
If you have long and textured hair, this ponytail will be very easy to pull off. All you need to do is use the length of your hair. Braid half of it and use the rest to tie the ponytail and give dimension and volume to the look.
