Blue in all its manifestations and varieties is, in fact, a light blue. Blue, in turn, is the embodiment of peace, harmony, magic and mystery. It is often used by psychologists to release tension, to tune in to relax, to allow distraction from problems. It has approximately the same functions as hair dye. The blue color has some differences – it is a little brighter, lighter, more expressive, but the essence remains the same. The shade is very calm, soft and pleasant. It will look unique on the hair, especially and very mesmerizing. It is worth comparing this shade with the rest of the extreme palette. Similar “calm” qualities have, perhaps, only lilac and purple shades.

Coloring Techniques

Previously, it was believed that bright and unnatural hair color is a sign of the teenage stage of development. Only representatives of informal associations could afford such a defiant image that literally screamed: “I’m not like the rest of you.” But today the line that divided the world into “civilians” and “informals” has disappeared.
