As 2020 comes to an end, we’re still seeing new hair color trends popping up on Instagram and Reddit alike. The latest shade to make its debut is periwinkle hair. This hue breathes new life into the pastel hair craze. If you’re a fan of light, fun-colored mane makeovers, there’s a solid chance a periwinkle hair color could be your next sherbert shade. Ahead, we’re sharing all of the details about periwinkle hair, including what makes it unique, how to DIY it, and how to maintain the color.
We mentioned that periwinkle hair is a pastel shade worth fawning over, but the color itself truly sets it apart from other pastel hues. The shade involves a beautiful blend of soft, pastel blue and lavender for a mane that’s whimsical in its aura. It’s also customizable based on your preferences. There are different variations of the trend. Some people rock pastel blue roots that transition to lavender for an ombré effect while others opt for a seamless blend of the two colors, creating a mane that’s full of dimension.
If you’re interested in giving a periwinkle hair color a try, there are a few different ways to go about it. This pastel hair color will most likely require bleaching your strands prior to reaching for a periwinkle hair dye so the soft shades can appear their most vibrant. Because of this, a permanent periwinkle mane is best left to the pros. But, if you’re a DIYer, you can totally take the color for a test drive before making a commitment.
Turn your attention to temporary hair color options, like our L’Oréal Paris Colorista Hair Makeup Temporary 1-Day Hair Color and L’Oréal Paris Colorista Hair Makeup Temporary 1-Day Hair Color Spray, depending on the look you’re interested in trying. If you want to try an all-over periwinkle hair color, you can use the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Hair Makeup Temporary 1-Day Hair Color in Moonstone. This shade is an iridescent take on the trend, offering a fusion of pastel purple and blue.
For those who prefer a blend of shades that create a mane full of movement and dimension, you can mist the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Hair Makeup Temporary 1-Day Hair Color Spray in Pastel Blue and Pastel Lavender throughout your hair. Both options wash out in just one shampoo, so those that are torn between both versions of periwinkle hair don’t have to choose! Just wash and play again. Then, if you’re ready for a full-time take on periwinkle hair, you can book an appointment at your favorite salon. Make sure to bring plenty of inspiration pictures so your colorist knows exactly what shade you’re envisioning.
Color-treated hair calls for a bit of a switch-up of your hair-care routine. If you decide to take the plunge and try periwinkle hair, keep these tips in mind to keep your mane looking its best.
This may seem obvious, but it’s a tip worth mentioning. To keep your periwinkle hair color in shape, you’ll need to use a shampoo, conditioner, and hair mask system that’s meant for color-treated strands. 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 fits the bill. The line is formulated to help keep colored hair vibrant, shiny, and healthy-looking.
You may be tempted to style your new color with your hot tools, but excessive heat-styling can lead to hair damage. To avoid this, opt for heat-free styling options when you can, like braids and updos. You should also make sure to spritz on a heat protectant before styling your hair with any hot tools. Try our L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray, which offers 450-degree heat protection.
A bold hair color like periwinkle hair calls for regular color touch ups, especially as your roots start to grow out. Book an appointment at the salon before your roots become an issue.
