How To Achieve The Perfect Denim Hair Look


Clients and stylists alike are going crazy for the hottest hair trend of 2016: Denim Hair. Adel have got the inside scoop on how to create the perfect, ultra-deep denim look using awesome products by Indola. 😍


Charmingly termed ‘Aquatic Glam’, this Indola system creates a dazzlingly dark denim blue which Indola Blogger, Anna Ponsa Lopez, describes as being ‘inspired by the enchanting beauty of underwater worlds’.

Find out how to recreate the look in these 4, easy to follow steps.



Step 1: Bleaching

In order to get the best colouring, it’s essential to create the cleanest possible blonde before further dyeing. For this, Indola recommend using:


  • Mixing ratio 1:2


Bleach the areas of hair your client wants to be the darkest denim to ensure an enviable, multi-tonal look.



Step 2: Global Colour

Once the desired sections of hair have been bleached, it’s time to create a beautiful, blue-toned base for the denim effect.


  • Mixing ratio 1:1


The inclusion of 2 ashy shades creates an ultra-cool note on which to build the dramatic denim.



Step 3: Roots

Make sure those roots are perfectly covered with this colour mix, specifically designed for use on the regrowth area of the pre-bleached sections.


  • Mixing ratio 1:1



Step 4: Ends

The final step ensures the mids and ends are a sultry shimmering blue. Indola suggest:


  • Mixing ratio 1:1


To be applied to the mid-lengths and ends of the pre-bleached sections of the hair, this finishing touch creates a glam yet versatile, multi-tonal effect.
