Dare to be different? Then get a fresh start with blue ombre hair!
This sensational color is certainly one for the bold and beautiful who don’t shy away from expressing themselves.
If you have an artistic personality, love showing your creativity, or you just want to try out a spectacular new hair color, then blue is surely for you!
Let your inspiration flow with our favorite breathtaking blue ombre hair ideas below!
1. Black to Blue Ombre Hair
One of the most popular blue ombre hair ideas out there is with black. The raven roots provide a smooth transition to the cool secondary color.
Natural brunettes should definitely keep this idea in mind for minimum maintenance.
2. Teal Ombre Hairstyle
Not all of these ombres have to be in classic blue shades. If you want to add some personality to your ombre hairstyle, you can opt for a teal tone. Blend it marvelously from a dark base and you will be radiant.
3. Brown to Blue Ombre Hair
In addition to black roots, brown roots are just as trendy when combined with blue tips.
In most cases, women who have brown hair try this combo out for the same reason as brunettes.
You won’t struggle with maintenance or visiting the salon every month for retouches.
4. Shades of Blue Hairstyle
If you want to completely stand out, experiment with ombre hair entirely in blue. Instead of mixing the blue with an earth tone, you can play around with different shades of this cool color.
For example, you can start with a royal blue base and continue with pastel.
5. Blue Ombre Short Hair
Like we described when discussing red ombre hair ideas, this coloring technique can be applied even on super short hair.
If you have a pixie haircut, don’t hesitate to try out a blue ombre. You can keep the shorter part dark and let the blue glow on top.
6. Dark Blue Ombre Hair
For a mysterious and romantic approach to blue ombre hair, think about going for darker tones.
Navy or any darker shade of blue can look amazing, especially when it springs from an even blacker base. Don’t hesitate to take this alternative into consideration for a chic outcome.
7. Long Hair with Blue Ombre
Even though you can get blue ombre hair with short haircuts, it arguably looks best on long hair.
No matter if your long locks are straight, wavy or curly, the blue color transition will be easily appreciated thanks to their extended length.
8. Blue and Magenta Ombre
Now this is a blue ombre hair idea that will make heads turn. As opposed to most options with blue and similar colors, this photo shows that a striking contrast can go far.
Electric blue and equally electric magenta are phenomenal together.
9. Pale to Bright Blue Ombre Hair
If you like the idea of neon hair but want to tone it down with the secondary color, think about this approach. While the second half is as neon as you can get, the top blends from black to an ashy and metallic blue.
10. Mermaid Hair
We have recently dedicated an entire article to mermaid hair, but it also deserves a top spot on this list too.
All colors in this ombre hair idea are inspired by the sea, with blues ranging from vibrant to rich and deep as the ocean.

If you want to make your blue hair pop, you should always remember that braids are the best.
Regardless if you braid your hair tightly or loosely, this styling technique helps accentuate the different colors in your locks.
12. Boho Blue Hairstyle
We love inspiring you with bohemian hairstyles that will make you shine at festivals, dates or any other sweet occasions.
In this photo, you can see how the beautiful blue ombre hair is decked off with an adorable white flower crown.
13. Blue Ombre Braids
Ladies part of the African hair community shouldn’t be afraid to spice up their braid hairstyles with a bit of color.
These box braids, for instance, look absolutely stunning with a royal blue to light blue gradient from a black base.
14. Steel Blue Ombre Hair
Although this hairstyle has more of a balayage tone to it than ombre, it’s an excellent way to showcase the idea of steel blue. This gorgeously metallic color looks outstanding when paired with silver hair.
15. Blonde to Blue Ombre
You may not see this hair color combo often, but when you do, it will totally grab your attention.
Blonde and blue hair work fantastically together owing to the powerful contrast. Even more so, it will add a splash of color to your overall look.
16. Long Bob Ombre
Kylie Jenner’s iconic looks are unmistakable. Whether you see her flaunting long raven locks, a cute blonde wig or this blue lob, you know King Kylie when you see her. Why not take advantage for inspiration?
17. Pastel Blue Ombre Hair
Get in touch with your inner fairy with this delightful hair color. The pastel blue results in a youthful, playful and cute look, all while remaining completely irresistible. We also love how it blends into silver at the tips.
18. Bangs and Blue Green Ombre
If you were wondering how your blue ombre would look with bangs, these are alluring results.
Even though the blue part leans more towards blue-green, you shouldn’t hesitate to get ombre hair if you rock choppy bangs.
19. Subtle Blue Ombre
Looking for a discrete approach to your blue ombre hair, rather than a flashy one?
Don’t hesitate to look into balayage options. As you can see in this photo, the color melt is subtle and extremely stylish in a black-blue combo.
20. Cool Palette Blend
You can take your ombre hair to a whole new level by experimenting with multiple colors.
For instance, you can take several shades from a cool color palette and mix them. Blue, turquoise, purple, and indigo work astoundingly well together.

Most ombre hairstyles involve mixing the two colors in a half and half manner.
Nevertheless, you can always use more of one color and less of the other. For example, this photo shows how bright blue hair looks with black roots.
22. Waterfall Braid for Blue Ombre Hair
Another braiding style that will help your blue hair stand out is the waterfall braid.

23. Platinum Blue Ombre Hair
This is easily one of the dreamiest hairstyles we’ve come across all day. It levels up the whole blonde and blue ombre hair idea, desaturating them for an almost white outcome.
If you want to feel like a princess, this is the look for you!
24. Gray and Blue Ombre
Gray hair and blue hair go hand in hand.
When thinking about ombre options, you can consider mixing blue locks with gray, silver, or other ashy tones.
In this example, you can admire a charcoal, baby blue, and royal blue blend.
25. Brown Hair and Blue Tips
We already know that brown and blue hair go very well together. However, you can always just aim for the tips. This is a terrific idea for women with shorter strands who want to give their hair a funky twist.
26. Purple Roots and Blue Ombre
Want to go all out with your cool hairstyle? Be brave and think about coloring your roots in purple and leaving the rest blue.
It’s a style that gracefully falls under the mermaid hair category, and we love every part about it.
27. Red to Blue Ombre Hair
An unexpected yet brilliant color combo is red with blue. When using these two shades in an ombre hairstyle, you also enjoy a chic purple transition from one color to the other.
The longer your hair, the more impressive this hairstyle will be.
28. Blue to Burgundy Hairstyle
On the other hand, you can switch things around and go from blue to red. You will still enjoy the violet gradient, so you don’t have to worry.
We recommend this idea for women who want more blue than red in their ombre.
29. Metallic Blue Ombre
Another way you can sport steel blue hair is shown in this sweet photo. The roots are black, while the rest of the hair blends out into this superb shade of metallic blue. It’s a highly flattering look for women with pale skin.
30. Light Brown to Light Blue Ombre
We’re back to the brown-blue idea, but this time we lightened everything up. If your natural hair color is light brown or dirty blonde, we encourage you to mix it with a lighter shade of blue for your ombre hairstyle.
