Purple hair: a subtle, elegant twist on #colorfulhair

Have you heard about the #colorfulhair trend sweeping across the world? One of our favorite variants is this super subtle pale purple version! Here's why we love it, and how you can work the look too.

Crazy for #colorfulhair

These days, we treat our hair color just like our make-up or outfit, daring bright bold color combinations, and confidently changing our look whenever the mood strikes. The temporary #Colorfulhair collection by L'Oréal Professionnel offers an almost unlimited number of bold color creations that can be personalized for a truly unique look: from rainbow shades to vivid hues and pretty pastels like this silvery purple hair here...

Purple hair passion

It might not sound like the most natural color to put on your hair, but this purple shade is so light that, at first glance, it almost looks white blond. The more blue your hair colorist puts into the mix, the stronger the purple will appear.

The most suitable color for you all depends on your skin tone: if you've naturally a cool-toned complexion, you'll look great with bluish purples like orchid and lavender. For warmer skin tones, a more pinky purple will suit you, such as pale magenta.

How to wear purple hair

Remember, you don't have to go all-over purple. If you're just dipping your toes in the #colorfulhair pool, why not try coloring just a section or two? Your colorist can even make sure your purple streak can be discreetly tucked behind the ear when needed. You never know, it might tempt you to go all the way and jump into the purple hair trend!

When it comes to styling your purple hair, we love long and loose looks, as well as pretty braided styles which really showcase the color.

Scared to commit? Try L'Oréal Professionnel's new Colorfulhair Flash, pro hair make up for any occasion. It's visible on all hair colors, and doesn't transfer. The best part? It comes right out in one shampoo. Do it yourself, or visit a salon for a full Flash service: in just 30 minutes, a L'Oréal Professionnel stylist will apply the hair make-up and style your look.
