This celebrity stylist is the reason we’ll be dying our hair BLUE this Christmas

When it comes to hair colour, not many of us are chameleons. We’d rather stick to our jet black, brown and when we’re at our boldest, blonde highlights.

Hair life was pretty basic until we found US-based Nigerian stylist, Olori Swank on Instagram and we dare say, things are about to take a drastic turn.

With a celebrity client base that boasts Teyana Taylor to Childish Gambino and T.I, Olori Swank sure knows her onions and we can’t think of anyone else we’d be gleaning hair inspiration from, especially in the colour territory.

Since her blue wave hit us on Instagram, we’ve been curious as to what motivates a professional like Olori Swank to settle for wearing her hair in this colour for as long as we were able to scroll through her feed (we made it down to 2013).

She’s worn blue braids, blue weaves in bob, curly, wavy, side parting, center parting, has mixed pink strands, grey strands and has surely tried out all the shades of blue on the spectrum.

Boy, that’s some grit and we love it! So if you desire a switch-up that will have your friends bowing at your feet this Christmas, then here are 9 photos we pulled from Olori Swank’s Instagram to help you decide which way to go in blue:
