Blue hair is a type of hair color that does not naturally occur in human hair pigmentation, although the hair of some animals (such as dog coats) is described as blue. Some humans are born with bluish-black hair (also known as “blue black” hair), which is black that has a blue hue under the light.
In some works by Homer, characters are said to have dark blue (kyaneos) hair or eyebrows when they are angry or in an emotionally intense state. For example, Odysseus’ beard became black blue when he was transformed by Athena upon returning home to confront his wife’s suitors. Other Greek gods were also shown as having blue hair. This imagery may stem from Egyptian myth, in which their gods were said to have hair of lapis lazuli. In a similar vein, characters from the Bible, such as Eve, Leah, and Rachel, are often depicted with a “sky-blue” color of hair. Color in ancient Greece and Egypt were also more expressive rather than natural: blue or gold indicated divinity because of its unnatural appearance and association with precious materials.
Anime characters sometimes sport blue hair, including Bulma of the popular Dragonball series, Son Goku and Vegeta from the same series can change their hair to blue when transforming into a Super Saiyan God, Sailor Mercury of the Sailor Moon series and Rei Ayanami of the Neon Genesis Evangelion. One author, in writing of Rei, sees her hair color as a marker of both her ‘unearthliness’ and her introversion. Konan, a character in Masashi Kishimoto’s Naruto, has blue hair. Strong Bad, from the internet cartoon Homestar Runner, lampshades this trend by stating emphatically that in order to be a proper anime character, “You gotta have blue hair!”
The animated character Marge Simpson is depicted as having blue hair. Rolf from Cartoon Network’s Ed Edd n Eddy is depicted to have dark blue hair. Jok Church’s character, Beakman, also has blue hair, which is a throwback reference, according to the creator, to an older version of Superman, who also had a blue tint to his hair.
Representations of the Buddha often feature blue hair, sometimes of a brilliant hue. This artistic convention emphasizes the blue element in the ‘blue-black’ hair said to be one of the 32 special physical characteristics of the Buddha. Traces of ancient blue pigment could be seen in the hair grooves of some of the 4-6C Buddhas known as the ‘Qingzhou Buddhas’ found in an ancient schoolyard pit in China in Qingzhou (Shandong, China) in 1996, shown on exhibit in London and many other world capitals.
In 1913–1914, just before World War I, there was a vogue for dyed brightly coloured hair in exotic shades such as blue, violet or emerald. This started in Paris and then spread to other cities such as London. In 1924, the first celebrity hairdresser, Monsieur Antoine, dyed his dog’s hair blue. An influential client, Lady Elsie De Wolfe Mendl, took up the same style and this started a new fad. Later in the 20th century, mature ladies had a blue rinse to conceal grey hair. The Queen Mother was the trend-setter and the peak of popularity for this fashion was the period following the Second World War.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Missy4 from Light dnim blu I purchased this color two days ago, I initially dyed my hair an intense violet burgundy, after a week my roots stayed the color but the length faded, so I opted to blend two shades. Only dying the faded parts of my hair with the blue dye product. The results were phenomenal and vibrant. The only concern I had was my hair came out much darker than the shade on the box, no big whoop, but I was going for a blue gray haired look on the ends. Date published: 2017-05-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by Athena from Happy to be Blue! I have hair that has a lot of grey and silver, plus had been bleached once upon a time. The color I got was not what was on the box, but I was delighted with the result. I have very intense blue hair and have gotten many many compliments. The blue shade changes depending on the lighting. Anyway, I knew from the instructions that I wouldn’t get the same results as that on the box and yes – I will absolutely use this shade again! I hope it maintains well! Date published: 2017-05-15
