How I Dyed My Hair Teal to Blue Ombre

Hey there, my darlings; today I’m showing you how I dyed my hair a TEAL to DARK BLUE ombre! A lot of people have asked me for more hair tutorials and happened to love this color, so it’s a good thing I filmed myself doing it! It took me like a whole day to do this, and four days to edit the footage, so I really hope you like the video and find it helpful!

STEPS

Here are all the things you need to do to get this look. For every single detail and tips, watch the video. It took forever to make because I wanted it to be as informative as possible. Here is the stripped-down version of the process!

1. Put on a crappy shirt that you don’t mind ruining, and bleach your hair. (I bleached my roots because I already had dark blue in, but the roots had grown in. I did this ombre starting with blue hair, but if you’re starting from a different color, then bleach your entire head, not just your roots!)

This is what my roots looked like before I bleached them:

This is what they looked like with the bleach in:bleaching roots

I left the bleach on for about 30 minutes. To see my blog post and video with more detailed information about bleaching hair, click here! This is what my hair looked like after only one bleaching:

2. Wash out the bleach and once your hair is dry, bleach it again if it isn’t light enough.

So this is what my hair looked like after I bleached it and washed out the bleach for the second time. This is light enough for what I’m doing today, but if I was going pastel, I’d have to have a lighter base color, and probably tone the yellowness out, but it’s fine for the teal color.

3. Add the teal to the top half of your hair, and feather it a slight bit lower than that so it will blend with the blue. I used Twisted Teal by ‘N Rage.

4. Mix your Raven Black hair dye by ‘N Rage with 60% conditioner (40% of your mixture should be the dye) to bring out this “black” color’s blue undertones. If you want to try a different blue, then go for it! This is just how I did it. I know the color it ends up looking like, plus it’s cheaper to use a more intense dye and dilute it with conditioner than it is to buy a dye that you have to use more of because it is closer to the intensity of color that you want. (Just sayin’, I love savin monayy haha)

No matter how you decide to get your darker blue, use that and apply it to the bottom half of your hair. Blend this color with the teal in the middle of your hair and try to make it a seamless gradient by mixing and overlapping the two colors where they meet at the midpoint.

5. Let the dye stay in your hair for however long you want. I say an hour plus, but it can be however long you want because these semi permenant dyes are vegetable based so they don’t damage your hair if you leave them in.

6. Rinse out your dye, wash your hair, and condition! Don’t forget to keep your hair moisturized because bleached hair is always dry and needs the moisture! That’s all ya gotta do and you should have fabulous hair now! Oh, and if you ever use this tutorial or do something cool with your hair, you absolutely HAVE to tweet me a picture and show me how it turned out!!

Hope everything goes well for you and good luck! xoxo

    Wow. The ombre had great results. The glitter around your eyes plus the hair color makes you look like a galactic goddess. I want to ombre my thick and curly hair from my natural black hair color to a light brown. Do have any tips for me?

      Omg I’m just seeing this now but thank you so much!! My best tip is to make sure that if you’re going to process your hair that you do loads of deep conditioning treatments to it like hot oil or deep conditioners. You will be able to keep your hair’s moisture and curl if you do that. Good luck!
