The birds are singing, the flowers and blooming, and the layers are coming off—spring is finally here. And for many of us celebrating the new season means indulging in a hair color change. What better way to welcome the warm weather than with a gorgeous, on-trend purple hair color? We get that it can be a big commitment to go with a hue so bold. That’s why L’Oréal Paris Colorista is the perfect go-to for temporary hair color upgrades you can make right at home. With formulas that wash out in as little as one shampoo, you can play with different shades in the purple color family from day-to-day without making the huge commitment (or bleaching). Check out six looks we’re loving for some purple hair color idea inspo. See the look, get the look, share the look!

Why we love it: This look is fun and playful while remaining totally wearable at the same time. It’s a unique take on the traditional blonde ombré looks that have become extremely popular in the last few years.
How to get the look: Using the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Semi-Permanent Color in Burgundy, apply the dye to the sections of your hair that you want to have a gradient effect. Remember to follow the instructions in the hair dye package to get the best color impact.
Why we love it: There’s no denying that this gorgeous vanilla lilac style is true perfection for spring. The warm vanilla hues combined with the coolness of the purple make for an ultra-flattering, bright color perfect for the warmer months.
How to get the look: First things first, drape a towel around your shoulders to protect your clothes. Reach for the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Hair Makeup Temporary 1-Day Hair Color Spray in Pastel Lavender. The temporary hair dye works on all hair textures and types, and washes out with just one shampoo session. Shake well and hold the can about four to six inches from your hair and spray your ends to get a gradual, subdued pastel fade.
Why we love it: Purple is a hair color that everyone can pull off beautifully, so if you’re looking to experiment with color, and want a somewhat low-maintenance look, this is your go-to. You can let your roots grow out a bit more between touch-ups and it’ll just feel like part of the style.
How to get the look: Grab the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Semi-Permanent Color in Purple and apply it to your hair following the product directions. Remember, it’s semi-permanent so the color will change from wash to wash until it fades completely.
Editor’s note: Your final color will also vary depending on your starting color—so a platinum blonde will have different color results from someone with dark dirty blonde tresses.
Why we love it: This look is eye-catching and totally unique. It lets you indulge in two shades of trendy hair color when you simply can’t choose. The combination of colors is stunning as well as equal parts edgy and romantic—we’re obsessed!
How to get the look: You’ll need the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Semi-Permanent Hair Color in Purple and Indigo to get the pretty contrast. You can also try it with the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Hair Makeup Temporary 1-Day Hair Color Spray in Pastel Lavender and Purple. Keep in mind that if you’re starting with a dark hair color base, you’ll need to bleach it before you apply the semi-permanent hair dyes to get a vibrant color that pops.
Why we love it: There’s something satisfying about a beautiful icy purple shade. It’s the perfect way to play with subtle color while also embracing the silver hues that might one day become your au natural look.
How to get the look: If your locks are already gray or silver, you can simply apply the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Hair Makeup Temporary 1-Day Hair Color Spray in Pastel Lavender all over your mane. Otherwise, you’ll need to grab the spray in Silver to help you create the base for this pretty icy hue. Spray the color from about four to six inches away from your hair for the most even application, allow it to dry, and repeat until you get your desired color.
Why we love it: Chunky highlights are not only trendy, but they’re a great way to add beautiful dimension to your hair. Kick it up a notch by opting for rich purple hues that are easy to customize.
How to get the look: Clip your hair into sections so that it’s easy to pull out and paint the pieces you want. Using the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Semi-Permanent Color in Purple, create face-framing strands and streaks of color all over your head. Don’t worry about a perfect application—a lived-in effect will make the style more low-maintenance. Just remember, if your starting base is dark, bleach will be necessary.
