How to Get Blue Tips on the End of Black Hair

Black hair with blue tips is a wonderfully subtle way of still giving voice to your unique style and making a bold statement at any age and in any setting. Achieving those blue tips, however, will require a few steps on your end.

The lighter your black hair, the more likely it is that the blue color you are in quest of will take.

Instead, you will appear to have hair that is tinged with the color blue or glowing a blue color.

A color test will not only tell you if your hair is healthy and able to withstand the hair coloring process but you will also be able to determine if the color that emerges is indeed the blue hue that you are seeking.
