Hello, my trendsetter wannabees! I know you probably heard of this purple hair trend by now. If you haven’t where have you been? Like seriously lol! It’s such a popular hair trend! Purple hair is so pretty, cute and feminine! I absolutely love it! I hope I can convince you to love it as well by the end of this post! Purple hair can be hard to pull off on some, but if you choose the right shade of purple you’ll have nothing to worry about! So the question now is how do you choose the right shade of purple? 🤔🤔🤔 Well, here’s where I step in to help! There are so many shades of purple to choose from that it’s overwhelming. You can choose from colors like periwinkle, lavender, amethyst, eggplant, plum, iris, violet, mulberry or lilac. Exhausting right! I mean all of these colors are great, but you can only choose one. Unless you want to rock an ombré look. But, we’ll talk about that a little later haha. I picked out 6 shades from the purple shade chart below that really stood out to me.
I chose the colors lavender, hyacinth, amethyst, eggplant, lilac and purple. I think these colors are so amazing! I love these colors so much! You will absolutely love them as well! Check it out below!
The first shade is Lavender of course!
I would describe lavender as a pale purple with a blueish tinge. A little bit of white is probably throw into the mix as well. Lavender is the most popular color of the bunch. I can definitely see why.
You will definitely give off peaceful vibes while rocking this shade of purple! Lavender hair looks great on most skin tones! Especially cool skin tones!
The second shade is Hyacinth!
I would describe hyacinth as a sliverish lavender tone. It’s such a unique and gorgeous color! I absolutely live for it!
The third shade is Amethyst!
Amethyst is also a really popular shade of purple! I would describe Amethyst as a reddish purple tone.
The forth shade is eggplant!
I would describe eggplant as a dark purple shade. It’s a real nice shade if you don’t want to do a drastic shade.
Eggplant hair is great to wear if your cool and easygoing! Eggplant looks great on all skin tones! Especially warm skin tones!
The fifth shade is Lilac!
I would describe Lilac as a pale purple tone with a pinkish tinge.
Drumroll please! The sixth shade is the one and only purple!
The shade that inspired all of these awesome other shades haha. Let’s give it up for Purple!
I love purple! It’s one of my all time favorite colors! It’s literally the best!
Which you guys already know, purple is really similar to violet.
Purple is more reddish and saturated than violet.
Violet is more blueish and less saturated than purple.
Some may find it kind of difficult to tell the two apart because they pretty much look the same. Well, that’s what I think lol. Purple hair and violet hair looks great on all skin tones as well! So anyone can rock it! Hooray!
Earlier I mentioned that we’ll talk more about purple ombré hair, so let’s get to it! Purple ombré hair is beyond gorgeous! It is e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g! Purple ombré hair is perfect for galaxy fans! This hair has a cool galaxy vibe to it! How awesome is that? You can get really creative with purple ombré hair! You can dye your hair all of the colors above, two or three of the colors above or any other shades of purple that you adore! Purple ombré hair is perfect to wear if your confident, cool and edgy!
