Hilary Duff is rocking a new cotton-candy blue color created by Nikki Lee and Riawna Capri.

"Hilary is no stranger to a fun hair color. She colored her own hair teal during lockdown! This mix of blues just hits differently on her though. In order to get her hair this vibrant cotton-candy blue, I had to first pre-lighten her hair with Joico's Blonde Life," says Lee, Nine Zero One salon co-owner and In Common Beauty co-founder. "Thank God I had my bestie Riawna to help me because we put in what felt like hundreds of foils. After processing, we did a quick pre-tone to kick out any unwanted yellow before applying the blue. This was an important step, as the blue mixed with yellow could've gone green. We then applied the magic: Joico's Color Intensity True Blue and Mermaid Blue from roots to mid-shafts. Then for Hilary's ends, Mermaid Blue with a splash of Peacock Green. Afterward, we did a deep-conditioning treatment on Hilary's hair with In Common's Crystal Cashmere. We're obsessed with this look! Hilary is 'goals' in many ways, but to be pregnant and rock this color with so much confidence is everything."
