Lil Kim to Lady Gaga at the Golden Globes: Behold, the best in blue hair

TextEmily Crooked

Inspired by the Mother of Monster’s periwinkle barnet she rocked at last night’s Golden Globes, here we chart the best in blue-hued hairdos

Last night Lady Gaga stunned the Golden Globes with ice blue hair wrapped into a tiara-esque up-do. The hair was matched to her incredible Valentino gown by celebrity stylist and Gaga’s long-term collaborator, Frederic Aspiras. The look is a progression from the electric blue we saw at her Las Vegas shows at the end of December, moving from sparkles and glam rock to sky blue aristocracy. Between Kylie Jenner’s mermaid hair in December and Gaga sticking with shades of blue into 2019, we’re inspired and so we’ve put together some of our favourite blue hair looks.

Emma in Blue is the Warmest Color

The look that prompted about half of the queer community to rush out and buy a box of blue hair dye, Lea Seydoux’s Emma was big dyke energy before we even knew we needed it.

Kate Winslet in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

We still hate her for taking up too much space on that door in the middle of the icy Atlantic ocean, but Kate Winslet as a moody, Indigo-hued punk checkout girl is such a look.

Jared Leto (circa 2010)

Had we all forgotten that Gucci sweetheart Jared Leto used to be a scene kid? Back when he fronted 30 Seconds to Mars, Leto’s hair had entire blogs dedicated to it. The blue hair the blue eyes, the cheeky expression – it works.

Gwen Stefani 1998

Gwen Stefani was also on the blue hair band waggon way before it was cool, in her past role of fronting No Doubt. Also, can we please have blue fur bikinis back?

Kylie Jenner

Kylie Jenner is a firm supporter of the #mermaidhairdontcare movement, having debuted numerous blue looks throughout the years. We love this icy dye job. Catch her at the chalet apres-ski.

Lil Kim

It’s 2001, Lil Kim has blue hair and a Chanel logo stencilled onto the fringe. We’re living, it’s iconic – so iconic that Beyonce did it for Halloween. Her blue hair in the "Crush on You" music video has also had a number of Halloween homages. 

Amanda Bynes

On the other side of her court appearance and “going off the rails” (whatever that means), Amanda Bynes emerged with these gorgeous aquamarine locks circa 2013. We’ll let you argue about whether it’s blue or green (we think it’s blue).

Disclaimer: proceed with caution, blue dye is a nightmare to get rid of, but it can be done. Only go for it if you want it long term or you’re prepared to drown it in red/orange dye when you want it gone (or you’re a celebrity who can hire a stylist to get rid of it for you).
