Harro! :) Thank you!
To get a blue green color you just need to put on a true blue dye over bleached blonde hair. It has to be light, bleached and blonde. An orange base won’t work, a brown base won’t work. Dyes act like a stain, or like watercolors when mixed together. So blue dye on a blonde base will create a blue green color. Sometimes my base is too yellow and I get a green, so I redye with a layer of diluted blue to make that color lean towards the cooler spectrum. However, blue-green is a hard color to maintain, you will need to touch up every few showers as the blue will wash off and you will keep ending up with a green. HTH!
(I use Directions lagoon blue diluted with conditioner. I also dye several times using very diluted formulations to get the final color that I want.)
Also, if your base is white, you can mix alpine green and lagoon blue, but if it was me I would totally just use Directions Turquoise. I haven’t though, since I only bleach to a blonde and never to a white.
