The Secret to Hilary Duff's Blue Hair

Her hairstylist managed to reveal the secret behind her vibrant cotton candy blue locks.

To achieve this, Lee explained that they pre-lightened her hair using Joico's Blonde Life and tons of foils.

She then followed it up with a quick pre-tone to eliminate unwanted yellow tone and brassiness before applying the blue dye.

Moreover, Lee went on to detail the "magic formula" that they used with the singer's hair, which they considered the most important step.

They mixed blue and yellow tones and applied the magic formula which is the Joico's Color Intensity True Blue and Mermaid Blue from the roots to the mid-shaft of her hair.

As for the ends of her hair, they added Mermaid Blue with a hint of Peacock Green shade to achieve the gradual blue tones.

The last step would be the deep conditioning treatment using In Common's Crystal Cashmere to seal the hair's moisture.
