Ciara Just Ushered In Fall’s Coolest Hair Color Trend
Ciara has done it again, dazzling her Instagram followers with a bright new hair color by stylist César DeLeön Ramirez. While Ciara tends to stick to her signature look — long, honey-blonde waves — she's been switching things up since Halloween, when she recreated hair, makeup, and fashion looks from icons like Janet Jackson and Nicki Minaj.
To keep up with this dynamic look, you don't need to have a pro hairstylist on call — especially if you'd prefer not to make an in-person appointment. Blue is one of the rare shades that's actually easy to DIY (even Hilary Duff did it). We've rounded up our favorite at-home kits, ahead.
First: the inspiration. Two days ago, Ciara posted a photo on Instagram with dark brown hair and face-framing caramel highlights, but yesterday she surprised fans with a long, light blue wig she says she styled herself. According to Ramirez, Ciara first considered trying the color during her last month of pregnancy with baby Win for the gender reveal, but plans changed. "We didn’t end up going with that gender reveal idea, but we still had this blue wig and we figured it was the best time to start having fun with it," Ramirez recalls.
While this blue is a big departure from her usual honey blonde waves, Ramirez says it's just the start of dynamic colors in Ciara's future. "In the past we’ve done silver metallic hair for the Met Gala and a neon yellow this last Halloween when she paid homage to Cardi B, so basically Ciara can wear any color and slay it," he says. (We find it hard to argue.)
