Blorange hair. Sounds a bit ominous, right? Well, someone told me the other day that I had it. Immediately assuming they'd either sneezed or hit me with a well-delivered, but admittedly niche, insult I'm yet to discover due to being over the age of 15, I responded with a less than socially acceptable ‘Excuuuuuuse me? And also, gesundheit’.
Assuming, as always, that my response wasn’t quite on point, I resorted to a cheeky bit of under the table googling (yes, I'm a professional beauty journalist) to discover what gracious and witty response the past version of me should have made.
And you know what? Turns out Blorange hair isn’t a newly discovered venereal disease, and said colleague wasn't really getting all up in my grill (I hear the kids are saying that, too) but actually trying to let me know my chosen hair colour was the latest celeb shade du jour - Blorange.
Is it rose gold? Is it red? Or just that sweet spot in between that says, ‘Yes, I'm confident enough in myself to have willingly entered into a life of ginger hair but I'd also like to be perceived as hot in a not so obvious and vaguely hipster way’. Yup, Blorange (or should we say Oranblon? No?) hair has hit the mainstream.
