Purple hair ideas that will make you hair royalty

Let's put the spotlight on purple hair. Pick from these gorgeous shades and show that you are indeed  pretty in purple. 

It’s fun to explore hair ideas, especially hair color. You’ve probably gotten some highlights before, and then you’ve moved on to coloring your hair entirely. Maybe you’ve been dying to try unconventional colors as well, such as strawberry blonde or pink. Let us give you another bold color option: purple. Don’t worry, you won’t look like an ube with this color. Here are some shades you can try if you want to give purple hair a go.

1. Lilac

Women with pale skin can go for light hair colors, as these can make their skin look even more alabaster. If you want to try a light purple tint, lilac is the way to go. This color is trendy and a bit unconventional for some, especially since you don’t see a lot of women with lilac hair around. Lilac hair would look great with waves, curls, and braids to keep it from looking flat and washed out.

Editor’s tip: Use Cream Silk Color Protect Conditioner to keep dyed hair from getting dull and dry.

2. Lavender

Lavender may look the same with lilac, but take a closer look and you’ll see the difference. Lilac has pinkish tones, while lavender is a light purple color with hints of blue. Artists and women in the creative profession may find this hair color attractive. It is playful, quirky, and adds a huge dose of personality in any look. Let this color stand out by balancing it with neutral outfit.

3. Eggplant

Women with fair to medium skin tones can go for darker shades of purple as these can add more warmth to their complexion. Eggplant hair can blend seamlessly with your naturally dark hair, so if you want to try purple hair but you want to be more subtle about it, this shade is for you. You can try this color as highlights if you want to start small.

Editor’s tip: Frequent dyeing may damage your hair in the long run. Make sure you pamper your locks with TONI&GUY Damage Repair Mask at least once a week to nourish it and bring back lost moisture.

4. Indigo

If blue and violet had a baby, that would be indigo. This deep hue alone looks mystical and even ethereal–imagine how it would make you look when you put it on your hair. Like eggplant, it blends well with dark hair and suits medium or morena skin tones, too. You just have to overcome any apprehensions you have, take the leap, and try this color.

5. Dusty purple

Think of this color as lavender or lilac that is a bit faded. If you want to try light hair but you’re worried that you might look like an anime character, go for dusty purple hair. This color is chic and sophisticated–you might just start a new color trend among your peers. You can even try dusty purple hair with hair coloring techniques like ombre or balayage.
