What Are Blue and Violet Based Ash Blonde Colors?

  • Blue based ash blonde colors contain a dollop of blue (instead of green) in their formulation.
  • This blue helps to counter yellow in blonde hair
  • The result is a truer, colder ash blonde result

Which colors are available in Blue Based Ash Blonde Colors?

  • Ugly Duckling has the following blue based ash blonde colors:
  • 10.1b, 9.1b, 8.1b, 7.1b, 6.1b and 2.1b.
  • We also have a violet based blonde color 7.22
  • They are given below:

6.1B RAVEN BLACK 7VV/7.22

When Should I Use Blue Based Ash Blonde Colors?

  • If you are looking to get to a true ash blonde hair color, first pre-lighten the hair to a true pale lemon yellow level 10.
  • Then use 10.1b or 9.1b with 20 Vol.
  • If you are looking to tone down or cover, orange hair, then use 7.1b or 6.1b or 7.22 with 20 Vol.
  • The blue and the violet in these colors will help neutralize the yellow.
