You may have noticed a new and unique hair color taking over social media lately, and it isn't rose gold anymore.
Enter: "blorange" hair
A bit less girly though, "blorange" can mean two different things to hair color professionals and clients. The color is what you get when you combine classic 'blonde' with a more fun 'orange'. This warm hue cannot be missed. Second, according to Teen Vogue, “it also refers to blood orange, 'a citrus fruit that combines shades of orange, ruby, and crimson.'" No matter how you want to refer to it, this warm and sunny shade is quickly gaining more popularity, especially across the pond in the UK.
We first saw the "blorange" rage kick off when Georgia Jagger, daughter of Mick, showcased the color late last year. However, it has also been debated that the color may have been inspired by the peach emoji or sunsets.
With over 2,000 results searching #blorange on Instagram right now, the possibilities with the unique color are endless.
There are so many ways you can rock the “blorange” trend from full head color, to highlights to ombre to even only applying it in the “peek-a-boo” underneath layer. If you want “blorange” without maintenance, wearing it with darker roots also looks great. Aside from the different ways to wear it, there is also the option of intensity for your color; it can be light and purposely faded looking for a softer look, or you may choose to go the vibrant route. The sky's the limit when it comes to “blorange” variations.
This warm toned shade is quite universal and looks flattering on all skin tones.
Those with lighter hair can achieve the color easily without bleach. Darker hair colors will have to bleach first, so first asset the current damage situation of your hair and proceed with caution. Then, if you decide go forth on your "blorange" quest, it is absolute critical to deep condition regularly and take extremely good care of your hair to keep the damage to a minimum.
Aside from damage, one other concern with “blorange” hair can be that if not properly taken care of, it could wind up becoming very brassy--after all, the color does have orange in it. But don't fret, a good sulfate-free color protecting shampoo will help with this.
While “blorange” is already quite popular, as the weather begins to get warmer and summer approaches, it is only going to get bigger as the months go on and temperatures rise.
