How light does hair have to be to dye it blue?

Blue can be difficult to get right yourself because you need your hair to be extremely light for it to actually end up looking blue. If your hair has lightened to an orangeish blonde, it’s likely around a level 7 – 8. For blue to actually look blue, you need your hair to be a level 10+.
