The colour in question is ‘blorange’ and hair gurus all over the world are hailing the unusual shade as THE colour of the season. So what actually is blorange? A new take on the pastel hair trend, blorange is a bold mix or blonde and orange and generally has a tinge of pink thrown in.

Like other popular pastel tones like pink and purple, blorange works best on platinum blonde hair and as with other pastel hair colours, it has a habit of being a teensy bit hard to care for because it fades fairly quickly.

The hue was created by celebrity hairstylist Alex Brownsell and while it has really only been around for a few months, it has quickly become one of the most talked about hair colours on the internet.

According to that very reliable source that is Urban dictionary, blorange can also occur when a blonde dye job goes wrong. “Like where someone dyes their hair blonde but it looks orange –> blorange – ‘omigod courtney dyed her hair blorange.'” While blorange may have been a faux pas in the past, it is now very much chic.

Rumor has it that when creating blorange, Brownsell was actually inspired by the peach emoji. How very pop culture. We loveeeeee.
