ghana braids hairstyles: keke palmer with in a ponytail

Keke Palmer just shaved her hair & dyed it purple (no, seriously!)

Yep, she has done it again! See the latest mane change of the one and only Keke Palmer, below...  

American actress and singer Keke Palmer is quite the style chameleon when it comes to her hair. From glossy ebony waves and box braids, to cherry red and caramel blonde hues, the star has reinvented her look more times than we can count!

With this in mind, it was only a matter of time before she hit the salon once again. And this time, she’s opted for a bright purple buzz cut, which has to be her most daring ‘do yet. So keep scrolling to see it for yourself, but be warned: you might be hit with a sudden urge to go purple!

Taking to Instagram to share her new look with fans, the Scream Queens star posted a trio of photos showing off her new hue, including the selfie above.

As you can see, her locks have been cropped into a super short buzz cut, while her remaining tresses have been dyed a head-turning violet shade. Proving that you don’t need long locks to look stylish, the actress coordinated her bold buzz with a matching t-shirt in an identical hue. Credit: @keke

If you’ve been following Keke’s hair evolution, you’ll know that the star first dipped her toe into the short hair world back in February, when she traded in her box braids for a blunt lob haircut. Since then, the star’s been getting progressively shorter; rocking a pixie cut for a while, before taking the plunge a few weeks ago by going for an all-over buzz cut.

While a host of other female stars, like Kristen Stewart and Cara Delevingne, have also opted for the daring shaved hairstyle so far this year, Keke’s bright new hue is in a league of its own! Credit: @keke

Editor’s tip: Has Keke inspired you to go purple? If so, make sure to invest in a targeted colour protection hair care range, like the TRESemmé Colour Revitalise Vibrance Protection Shampoo and Conditioner to help protect your freshly-dyed tresses against colour fade.
