I have been thinking about dyeing my hair blue. I have never dyed my hair before. My current (and natural) hair color is jet black. Any tips on how I can dye it blue? Should I bleach it first?

Yeah, use bleach, also I would suggest getting semi permenant dye, so it comes out in a week or so, so if you don't like it you can try another colour. I'm about to do the same thing (if I ever get my lazy ass up to do it) so I researched it a little.

I would suggest having a professional or someone who has bleached hair before do the bleaching; the dying (especailly semi permenant) should be easy enought that anyone can handle it.

Why blue? Some people can pull off the random colors of hair, but it really depends on how you look... I'd assume it'd be hard to pull it off... I'm happy with my dark brown hair... lol...

Well it's partly because of an older friend (20something) I had when I was younger. I used to practice Kung Fu with this guy who was a guitarist in a local metal band. He had dark blue hair and I thought he looked really cool. I've wanted to try this for a while but I was working at a place that prohibits non-natural hair colors.

It's probably best to get a professional to do it, otherwise it'll end
up looking like crap. Uless you can get one of those girls who dye thier
hair every second day to do it.

Bleach it two or three times to a white, then dye in blue, for the brightest saturation.

Dont do all blue, it'll look shit no matter what you do, you should get an L streak in your hair if you do do it yourself bleach first and go a bit darker than the tone you want as it's real hard to do it thoroughly and so it'll be lighter.

Make it blonde and then blue. That way, it shows up clearly.

i do not stalk....
anyway, you need a friend to help you cuz it's very hard to get the spots in the back unless you are superiorily talented. You can get stuff called stripper that takes out all the color and bleaches your hair to hell and then wait a few hours at least to do anything more. If you are concerned about your hair being ruined go to a salon to bleach your hair, after they have bleached it you can use kool-aid as a cheap way to dye your hair a different color every week

First off you HAVE to bleach it, or else your color will never come through.
Now we have to face facts. Your hair is naturally the darkest it can be,meaning you can never bleach your hair to a very fine yellow or almost white. Unless you risk losing your hair, or fucking it up, bleaching it more than once.

Now, in simple color theory, what colors do yellow and blue make?
Green.
You won't end up with a solid blue, even if you do, once you start to wash it, it will fad pretty damn quick to an ugly green.

So, if you can get it bleached to a pretty much yellow, choose something that fads to a decent color, or less blochy color. like purple or red.
