Punk culture is at the heart of Manic Panic and has been since it was founded in 1977 by Tish and Snooky. This is definitely reflected in their choice of shades for the Manic Panic blue hair collection. There are so many amazing colours to choose from and so many styles you could try.
If you are having a hard time just choosing one then why not combine two to create an ombre hairstyle or a two-tone ‘do. If you are trying styles such as this, the trick is to section off your hair before you begin so you know exactly where your colour needs to be applied.
A popular style for hair dye beginners is dip dye. For this style, all you need to do is apply the hair dye to the ends of your hair. Decide how far up the strand you would like the colour to go and then start applying your dye.
When using shades of blue Manic Panic hair dye, it is important to tone your hair first if you have lightened it. Many blue hair dyes have a green base which will be even more evident if your hair is starting with a hint of yellow or orange colour. Toning out these shades will help you to enjoy the true blue colour of the hair dye.
To use your Manic Panic blue dye, apply it to your hair using a tint brush then thoroughly comb through your hair until the hair dye gets frothy. This will also help you to ensure your hair is evenly covered for the perfect finished result. Next allow your dye to process for about 30 minutes before thoroughly rinsing your hair in cold water to lock in that new blue colour. For best results, apply Manic Panic to dry hair and use a hairdryer to add heat during processing for an even more vibrant blue hairstyle.
