This Ocean-Blue Dye Job Brings New Meaning to the Term “Beach Waves”

Ocean hair takes beach waves literally. Instead of spraying hair with sea salt spray to create a tousled look, people are getting blue dye jobs to look just like the sea. So far, #oceanhair has been tagged on Instagram almost 17,000 times.

Ocean hair isn’t just plain old Smurf blue hair, either. Stylists paint on streaks of varying shades of blue, like cobalt, turquoise, teal, and hints of green to create the look. Together, the water-inspired hues “create depth and movement that mimics the ocean,” Bakersfield, California–based colorist Brittany Holland explains to Allure.

Better known as @cozmic.color on Instagram, Holland recently posted pictures of an ocean hair look she created for one of her clients. “My client and I both share a love for the ocean and the beach, so I wanted to create something she would enjoy and could almost get lost in while stuck in our desert town,” she says.

The complete coloring process took about four hours because Holland had to bleach her client’s hair first “to create the perfect canvas,” she says. Then, she mixed together a few Pulp Riot dyes to create four different custom shades of blue and green. “I never apply a color straight from the tube,” she says.
