It's Time To Dye With Vibrant Hair Colours

With 2020 being the year for intermittent lockdowns, many of us saw it as an opportunity to do three things: Stay safe, Stay at home and... try a new hair colour. Talk about putting the time to good use! Trying a brand new alternative hair colour that differs from your signature look is a bold step too far for many of us. Luckily this year's stints of staying at home have meant carefree dyeing can occur and at Blue Banana, we have over 200 epic shades to transform your hair. Not only do we stock some of the best brands available including Manic Panic, Crazy Color and La Riche Directions; the majority of our products are Vegan friendly and PPD Free meaning you can enjoy cruelty free hair colour that helps nourish your hair while it dyes. 

Check out our epic range of colourful hair dye shades and start deciding on your 2021 hair dye:

Enhance Your Piercing With 3 For 2 Body Jewellery

There's no denying that at Blue Banana we have a thing for alternative footwear. From our two favourite brands: New Rock & Dr Martens we stock some of the boldest boots available. Custom styles and quirky designs are our specialty, so if you're looking for something that will stand out and is a little bit different than the norm; you've come to the right place.

Although 2020 hasn't been without its challenges, one thing that hasn't stopped is our passion for Dr Martens Boots. Throughout the last 12 months we've worked extensively to populate with the best alternative Dr Martens available.
