Have a preference for chocolate over vanilla? In that case, you can forego the vanilla lilac hair color trend in favor of sporting a chocolate lilac hue. Yes, chocolate lilac hair is trending, and it’s the perfect way for brunettes to switch up their mane with a chic purple hair color. Ready to satisfy your sweet tooth? Read on to learn all about the chocolate lilac hair color trend, including how to give it a try yourself.
It isn’t hard to put two and two together and envision what a chocolate lilac hair color looks like. The hue features a rich, chocolatey brown base with a beautiful lilac purple mixed throughout using the balayage highlighting technique. It can be customized with a range of lilac shades, from cool to warm, making it flattering on all skin tones. Not to mention, the brown-meets-purple hair color is perfect for the fall and winter seasons.
Want to switch up your mane with a chocolate lilac hair color? If you’re headed to the salon, be sure to bring plenty of inspiration pictures to ensure your hairdresser knows the shades of lilac you’re imagining. Also, keep in mind that if you’re starting with a dark base color, bleach may be required to lighten your strands enough for your lilac color to show up bright and vibrant.
More of a DIY gal? Not a problem! There are plenty of at-home hair coloring kits available to achieve a chocolate lilac-inspired mane. Our top picks? It all depends on how long you want your chocolate lilac hair to last.
If you want a temporary chocolate lilac hair color…use the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Hair Makeup Temporary 1-Day Hair Color in Purple or the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Hair Makeup Temporary 1-Day Hair Color Spray in Purple.
If you want a semi-permanent chocolate lilac hair color…use the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Semi-Permanent Hair Color in Purple.
If you want a permanent chocolate lilac hair color…use the L’Oréal Paris Féria in Power Violet, Power Violet - Intense Deep Violet, Midnight Violet, or Purple Smoke.
Now that you know all about the chocolate lilac hair craze, you’re likely wondering how to keep your trendy new hair color looking good. Take note of the following hair tips so you can put your best chocolatey purple strands forward.
Color-treated hair requires a specially formulated hair care system. Swap your usual shampoo, conditioner, and hair mask for products that are meant for colored strands. We recommend the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Color Vibrancy Protecting Shampoo, L’Oréal Paris Elvive Color Vibrancy Protecting Conditioner, and L’Oréal Paris Elvive Color Vibrancy Repair and Protect Balm.
Bold hair colors like purple have a tendency to fade quickly. This is where a color-depositing conditioner can make all the difference, as it’ll give your colorful strands a boost in between salon visits. Learn more about the role this must-have hair care product can play in keeping your chocolate lilac hair looking its best by reading our article, Do You Need Color-Depositing Conditioner?
By now, you likely know that excess heat styling can lead to damaged hair, but did you know that it can also cause your hair color to fade prematurely? Give your strands a break now and then by opting for a heat-free hairstyling alternative. We love the messy, textured look a hair pomade creates. Simply work a dime-sized amount of the L’Oréal Paris Studio Line Overworked Hair Putty throughout your mane, scrunching to define your layers and boost texture. Add more product as needed. That’s it!
