14 Sweet and Spunky Ways to Do Purple Hair

Purple hair? Oh yeah! It’s feminine yet edgy and oh so chic!

Dying our hair purple is a funky way to show people that simple blonde, red, or brunette hair just won’t do for you. Purple hair is a fun hair trend right now, but it’s not so mainstream that everyone’s doing it! Choosing a purple hairstyle is a sure way to stand out and march to the beat of your own drummer. It sends the message that you’re an independent, go against the grain type of girl, and it’s a sure way to turn heads and show off your style!

Thinking about dying your hair purple? It’s best to start with the lightest hair possible. If you already have blond hair, this shouldn’t be a problem. Brunettes and red heads, however, will most likely need to bleach the sections of hair they’ll be dying.

By far the hardest part of dying hair purple, though, is choosing the perfect shade—or shades—of purple! There are just so many shades of purple to choose from, it can make your head spin!

Lucky for you, we’ve rounded up some of the cutest and prettiest purple hair ideas out there!

1. Brown Hair With Purple Ends
