Tired of traditional shades of blonde hair and brown hair? We totally feel you. That’s why we couldn’t be more excited for the latest hair color trend: violet hair. This hair color idea is not only bold and beautiful, but it’s easier to achieve than you might think. Keep reading to learn everything you need to know about violet hair, from who this color will look best on to how to get the hair color at home to how to care for your new purple shade.
We’re firm believers that you should try any hair color you’d like! However, if you’re looking for real talk about who violet hair truly pairs best with, it all comes down to your undertone. Since violet is a cool hair color, it tends to look best paired with cooler undertones. Of course, if you don’t have a cool undertone that doesn’t mean you can’t still try violet hair and look absolutely gorgeous. More on that below!
Remember how we said that just because you don’t have a cool undertone doesn’t mean you can’t get in on the violet hair color trend. You definitely can! Violet hair is customizable, meaning a pro colorist will be able to determine which dye shades can be mixed together to bring violet hair to life in the most flattering way for you.
Before hitting up the salon or picking up an at-home hair color kit, there are a few things to keep in mind about violet hair. For starters, unless you have blonde hair, you’ll likely have to bleach your hair first in order for the violet color to show up. The darker your starting shade, the more sessions it may take to achieve your desired level of purple.
If you’re ready to take the purple plunge and try the violet hair color trend yourself, you can do so at home with one of our at-home hair color options. We have a variety of violet hair colors in different tones and depths that you can try. Choose between the L’Oréal Paris Féria in Power Violet, L’Oréal Paris Féria in Intense Deep Violet, L’Oréal Paris Féria in Purple Smoke, and L’Oréal Paris Féria in Midnight Violet.
Whenever you color your hair, it’s important to make sure that you put together a hair care routine for color-treated hair. If you have violet hair, follow these tips.
1. Upgrade your hair care routine. Stock your shower with a system of nourishing shampoo and conditioner formulated for color-treated hair, such as the L’Oréal Paris EverCreme Deep Nourish Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris EverCreme Deep Nourish Conditioner. Then, once or twice a week, swap out the conditioner for the L’Oréal Paris EverCreme Renourishing Butter to give your locks the extra TLC they deserve. You can also use a hair sheet mask for extra hydration on violet hair. Try the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Intense Repair Hair Sheet Mask or L’Oréal Paris EverPure Deep Moisture Hair Sheet Mask.
2. Turn down the heat. It’s not just about the products you use, either. Show your strands some love by turning down the dial in the shower—after all, scalding hot water can strip your hair of essential oils, which can leave your hair feeling dry and looking dull. Rinse off in lukewarm water instead.
3. Embrace your hair’s natural texture. The multi-tonal elegance of violet hair looks so pretty when paired with curls or waves, so spritz some of the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Wave Swept Spray onto wet hair, then let your hair air dry for natural, carefree waves.
