We’d be lying if we said we didn’t love all things purple—and the latest hair color trend is no exception! If you’ve been thinking of rocking a purple mane, consider trying an eggplant hair color. Not only is this color totally on-trend, but it’s also the perfect way to transform your beauty look as we ever so slowly transition into spring. Keep reading for everything you need to know about getting an eggplant hair color, from what achieving an eggplant hue entails to how to switch up your hair care routine for a head full of luscious purple locks.
Eggplant hair is exactly what you’d imagine—assuming you’re familiar with its namesake. The trend refers to a deep purple hair color that resembles the shade of the vegetable. Eggplant hair can be achieved by coating your entire mane in purple color, or you can opt for a subtler, more low maintenance alternative, which involves using a balayage highlighting technique. If you’ve ever contemplated trying purple hair, this trend is the perfect way to do it as its dark tone isn’t quite as bold as lilac or violet hair. It’s also a great choice for brunettes since it allows you to try a fun color without breaking out the bleach.
Think eggplant hair is for you? In that case, we have some good news: You can DIY this trend! To give your entire mane an eggplant makeover at home, use the L’Oréal Paris Féria in Power Violet, Power Violet - Intense Deep Violet, or Midnight Violet, depending on your desired hue.
Alternatively, if your interest was sparked when we mentioned going the balayage route, you’ll be better off seeking out a professional who can expertly place your hand-painted eggplant highlights.
Now that you know how to get an eggplant hair color for yourself, it’s time to go over a few tips to keep your new ‘do looking its best. Follow the tips below for a gorgeous, healthy mane!
The most important thing when it comes to maintaining an eggplant hair color is to swap your usual shampoo, conditioner, and hair treatment for a line that’s specifically formulated for color-treated hair. We recommend using the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Repair & Defend Shampoo, the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Repair and Defend Conditioner, and the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Repair Remedy Balm. This line deeply repairs and restores strength and brilliance strand by strand for hair that’s renewed, shinier, and stronger.
After coloring your strands, it’s always a good idea to show your hair some extra love. You can do this by treating your mane to a hair mask or deep conditioner. When it comes to hair masks, we recommend the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Intense Repair Hair Sheet Mask and the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Deep Moisture Hair Sheet Mask. Prefer to deep condition your strands? Take your pick from the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Oil Rapid Reviver Deep Conditioner, L’Oréal Paris Elvive Total Repair 5 Rapid Reviver Deep Conditioner, and the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Color Vibrancy Rapid Reviver Deep Conditioner.

As great as your new eggplant tresses will look paired with voluminous curls and super-straight strands, give your hair a break from heat tools and opt for heat-free styling alternatives instead. One of our favorites? Loose, effortless waves. They’re a foolproof way to showcase your new color, plus they’re super easy to create sans heat. Simply grab a texture spray—like the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Wave Swept Spray—and spritz it onto towel-dried hair, braid, then allow your hair to air dry. Once your strands are dry, remove your braid to reveal your waves. Say hello to perfectly styled hair!
Eggplant hair may be top of mind due to its trendiness, but it’s far from the only purple hair color trend. For another purple hair color trend you can try, head on over to our article, Everything You Need to Know about Getting Purple Balayage Hair.
