5 Ways to Wear the Trendy Amethyst Hair Color this Season

This gemstone-inspired shade is one of the boldest hair color trends of the moment.

Amethyst hair color is one of the prettiest hair color hues trending this season. This color is a beautiful blend of blue and purple shades of hair color but leaves the exact tones up to interpretation. This is ideal for allowing room to tailor the outcome to a shade that will flatter a range of skin tones. From vibrant purples to electric blues, amethyst hair color is the creative stylist’s dream come true.

5 Ways to Wear Amethyst Hair Color

Here are 5 ways to wear amethyst hair color:

1. Sleek Bob

It doesn’t get much sleeker than this sleek amethyst-colored bob. This style is a collaboration created by two expert stylists. Chavi Finck, pictured here, is a Brooklyn-based stylist who experimented with color to create this beautiful shade. She then turned to Estee Gottlieb for a super-sleek bob cut with precision.  The finished look manages to nail that perfect blend of sleek texture and just enough volume.

2. Voluminous Curls

Add some volume to your strands and show off your fresh color.

This ombré hairstyle is a beautiful blend of amethyst hues. Sleek, voluminous, with a high-shine finish, this elbow-length style makes quite the statement.

Give your hair this shiny finish by running TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shine Serum through the length of your strands after styling.

3. Pastel Ombré

A pastel blend is a more subtle way to get in on the trend.

Are you not quite ready to take the plunge and opt for an all-over amethyst hairstyle? This pastel ombré alternative includes a hint of amethyst at the root and fades beautifully into a more subtle hue.

4. Pantone-Inspired

Get inspired by the Pantone color of the year.

The Pantone color of the year, Very Peri, is a bold shade of amethyst hair color. Double up on trends by asking your stylist for a modern iteration of a shag haircut.

5. Dark Undertones

Darker hues give this a more toned-down look.

Leave it to Leon Lee, stylist, colorist, and educator, to create this amethyst-inspired hairstyle. With darker undertones and a wispy bang, this hairstyle allows you to get in on the trending color in a more sophisticated way.

Keep your color vibrant long after you leave the salon by using Nexxus Color Assure Shampoo and Conditioner.
