Don't Let the Name of the Hair-Color Trend "Blue Mist" Scare You Away

Chestnut, caramel, and auburn might be the hair colors that first come to mind when you think of the fall but the "blue mist" hair-color trend is proving to be just as good an option for the upcoming season.

"If you read the word 'blue' and immediately counted yourself out, allow us to assure you that this hair-color trend is a lot more wearable than you think," said celebrity hair colorist Jeremy Tardo told POPSUGAR. Unlike its icy blue or turquoise blue counterparts, the "blue mist" shade is more muted and smokier.

The unconventional shade is a mix of silvery blond with a light blue tint. "The new blue is barely blue and can be worn by anyone who is OK with having their hair lightened a lot beforehand," said Tardo. "At the salon, have your colorist bleach your hair to platinum blond and tone with equal parts of a pale blue and a silver."

It's certainly more daring than your classic fall hair colors but worth trying just the same. Keep reading to see more blue mist hair color inspiration for the fall.
