#35: Royal Purple and Pink Hair Romance
This pinkish-purple hair with purple roots makes a romantic style. It’s cute yet edgy. My best thing about this pink and purple hair is how seamless it comes together and how vibrant the colors are! Use Olapex to help maintain the hair’s integrity while lifting and Pulp Riot color to achieve this perfect blend. Dry shampoo will be a lifesaver for this shade because the less you wash, the longer the vibrancy!

#36: Black to Purple Melt
This is a black and purple hair melt. It’s a mixture of shades of purple fading into softer ones to give it a dimensional and fun look. Use Pulpriot hair color for this look. After the first appointment, see your stylist every three to four weeks to keep the color fresh and beautiful. Use a sulfate-free shampoo, conditioner, and cold water when rinsing your hair, as it will help minimize color fade. This, paired with a heat protectant, will increase the longevity of the color.

#37: Dark Red Purple Magenta Passion
A dark red-purple hair color like magenta is versatile for all skin tones, so it’s a safe zone for women wanting to jump into a more fun, vivid color. These tones can work for all hair types, textures, and skin tones. They can be customized for you. Adding in braids is a bonus. Use a deeper, more velvet shade on a darker skin tone and a more lavender purple pastel tone if you have a fair skin tone. It can be highlighted for a more subtle effect, or it can be bold and a solid all-over variation of purple. With a variety of purple hair options, you can find one to compliment your skin tone.
#38: Purple Amethyst Mermaid Waves
Opt for long wavy hair and the beautiful color of an amethyst mermaid look with vivid colors. The beachy waves illuminate the combination of the purple-amethyst waves of Joico Vivids applied to the hair.
The purple mermaid color is fashionable, fun, edgy, playful, and easy on the eyes. However, be prepared for frequent salon visits every 3 to 4 weeks to freshen your vivid color perfectly.
#39: Bright Violet Hair
Bright violet hair is for women who want to try vivids without a huge commitment. You’ll need to have your ends previously lightened first. Then you’ll need to bring up your balayage in a very natural and beautifully blended way. This will allow the gorgeous pops of color to emerge without the dull commitment of bleaching the hair into a blank canvas.
If you wanted, this color could fade out gradually back to a natural balayage. Purple is the best color for that! It fades out to lighter and brighter, eventually to beautiful pastels that the blonde will begin to peek through.
Purple looks great on almost all women! You have to ensure that you are cool with the time and money commitment, as well as cold shampoos and minimal heat styling. Purple hairstyles are not good for women who wash their hair daily or love to flat iron.

#40: Multi-Toned Violet Ombrè Hair
Go for a multi-toned violet ombre. Use Pulp Riot to create this hair color because Pulp Riot hair color maximizes how creative you can get with colors, and it’s long-lasting. Always use a color-safe and sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner to effectively maintain the vibrancy and longevity of purple ombre hair like this. Ombre purple hair is perfect for women looking to try something fun. It’s especially great for women who love changing their looks frequently from one fantasy color to another.

#41: Purple Highlights
Jazzing up your medium-length hair with purple highlights is a subtle yet edgy way to spice up your color. While everyone may not be able to have purple hair color, this is a fun way of getting that edge yet still keeping it fresh and modern.
This purple-brown hair is a great look for women wanting something different but may have restrictions due to work, etc. It’s an easy and subtle way to add eye-popping dimension to your hair. Throwing purple in with the other highlights and lowlights works well with almost all skin tones because it acts as a beautiful accent piece.

#42: Purple Amethyst Sunset
Consider a purple hair color that is an amethyst sunset. The best thing about this look is how all colors melt and play off each other. Use Joico Intensities or Pulp Riot semi-permanent fashion colors. Both are great for longevity and make the hair shine!
To maintain fashion colors like this purple shade, use L’anza Color Guard to help fight color loss while washing and their color-preserving shampoo and conditioner. Most fashion colors work best on medium to thick hair. Those hair types can withstand the process a lot better than fine hair. Fashion colors are for all skin tones. It just depends on the combinations you’re working with. The beauty of it all? When you dye your hair purple, the possibilities are endless!

#43: Deep Purple Color
A deep purple color is for the woman who wants all the purples! To create a deep violet tint, use Schwarzkopf Royal for the base, 4-29 and 0-99 w/20 volume. Paint the hair with Schwarzkopf Blondme 20 volume in an irregular pattern and process to a pale yellow. Then use diagonal back sections and apply Schwarzkopf 8-29 w/0-11, Pulp Riot jam, and Joico Indigo with Cobalt. Purple hair complements cooler skin tones but could be worn by all women. Confidence is everything!

#44: Brownish Purple
Go for a brownish-purple color that combines purple and dark brown. If you have a fair amount of fine hair, use products from the range of Eleven products. The I Want Body shampoo helps create volume, and the I Want Body conditioner is lightweight so that it won’t weigh your hair down and leaves it feeling amazing.
This layered bob is for women who have a finer, straight hair texture and only have a little time to maintain but want to have fun at the same time. This purple-brown color isn’t for pale-skinned women, only for women with a slightly dark to darker complexion.

#45: Bright Plum on Dark Roots
A bright plum on dark roots works well with natural hair color. Your hair will fade beautifully into this vibrant waterfall of grape juice. Try using Milkshake Silver Shine Shampoo to maintain this purple hair colour. You don’t need just to have platinum blonde hair to use that specific product. Using a color-treated shampoo and conditioner always helps, along with using the Milkshake 12 Effects leave-in treatment.
Most hair types go well with a vibrant purple. However, finer-haired women or blondes tend to have a better vibrancy effect. Anyone could pull off this purple hair cut, though! With long or short hair, this grape juice hue is fine.

#46: Pastel Purple Tones
The pastel purple hair has colors mixed with the metallics, and they look trendy, edgy, and fun! There’s a harmony of the colors used (soft lilacs, icy purple, deep violets) to give the curls both softness and edginess.
To recreate this light purple hair color, use the Joico Intensity and Metallic line. The pigment payoff for the colors is beyond amazing! For maintenance of the vibrancy, it is recommended to use shampoos for color-treated hair. Follow up with a nourishing moisture conditioner to keep your curly hair soft. You can use your favorite soft hold spray to create a spiked pixie.
#47: Galaxy Purple Hair
Go for galaxy purple hair if you need color correction. First, bleach out all of the old colors, then counteract the colors left in the hair to achieve these shades of purple hair. Use B3 and Redken bleach. Then use the vivid line Pulp Riot. Galaxy hair is great for women wanting to get away from the darker colors and wanting to try out vivids. The darker and lighter tones can look great on most skin types.
#48: Smokey Eggplant Purple
Consider smoky purple hair. The vibrant color is fun and exciting! Use Pulp Riot to recreate the tone in this dark purple hair. This particular color is called Eggplant. The best way to maintain this look would be to use a sulfate-free, color-safe shampoo and conditioner by Kevin Murphy called Hydrate Me. The products smell amazing and leave your eggplant hair color lasting for weeks!

#49: Jewel-Toned Purple
Try an amethyst, jewel-toned purple! Don’t you love how the textured cut accentuates the different ribbons of color throughout the hair? To achieve the purple hue, use Wella and Pulp Riot colors. To maintain fashion colors, ask your stylist to mix some of your colors with your favorite conditioner or Olaplex. You can use this at home to deposit little bits of color every time you wash!
As for skin tone, according to the rules, a violet color will look best on cool-toned women, whereas a peachy color would look best on warm skin tones. However, you can’t go wrong with fashion colors since they’re so obviously fake.

#50: Multi-Tonal Amethyst Balayage
This is a multi-tonal amethyst balayage. The best part about this dark purple balayage is the dimension of the vibrant tones and how it blends seamlessly with the roots. Use Blondor and 30vol to pre-lighten your hair, then use Pulp Riot in Jam and Eggplant for the purple ribbons. Put R+Co One Prep Spray and R+Co High Dive on the ends. Then ask your colorist to make you a custom Evo Fabuloso Color Conditioner so you can maintain the purple at home!
This dark purple hair color is a great choice for women with naturally dark hair as it looks great with a darker contrast root. It would look great on most skin tones as the violet is not overly cool or warm. Because the hair has to be lightened quite a bit for vivid colors, the hair has to be healthy and preferably virgin before one of these colors can be done.

#51: Soft Lilac
This color melts from a smoky velvet into a light dusty purple tone, creating a soft approach to fashion colors! Use a combination of Pulp Riot fashion colors to create this look and Olaplex. These colors have an amazing consistency and are packed full of conditioners to ensure that the integrity of your hair is not compromised.
Use sulfate-free shampoos and conditioners, such as Sudzz Cashmere and Aquafix, to maintain a purple hue. Wash very infrequently in the coldest water you can bear! Pulp Riot colors are interchangeable. You can custom-create a shade for any complexion.

#52: Unicorn White Purple
This unicorn white purple is similar to a cotton candy swirl and unicorn dreams! Use Pulp Riot for fashion colors because they are long-lasting colors with a creamy consistency. For maintenance, minimal shampooing, quality sulfate-free shampoo and conditioning treatments, dry shampoo, and minimal hot tool use is necessary. These colors are high-maintenance but very fun and worth it when committed!
The lightening process to achieve this bright purple hair can be long and take multiple sessions depending on what kind of hair history each woman has, so good maintenance both before lightening and after is important, and that means spending time on your hair.

#53: Short Boysenberry Nightfall
This short boysenberry purple is an all-over purple color with dimension. Stick with all Pulp Riot colors. Formulate the base color a bit deeper, and you’ll create dimension. Base that with Velvet, then add Nightfall and a few drops of Noir. Apply that like a new growth retouch and comb it through. Base the end color with Jam, Clear, and a few drops of Velvet!
For maintenance, follow the initial color service with a clear glaze to lock in the color. Try Schwarzkopf Igora vibrance 0-00 1:2 1.9%. Also, shampooing less frequently is a must! Vivid-colored women should use dry shampoo daily to keep their color fresh. Try Simply Dry by AG.
#54: Light Pinkish Purple Color
Light pinkish purple color is a popular trend that has stayed! Perfect for platinum blondes who want to add some color to their hair. Keep the longevity with a light purple toner, let it fade, and keep it temporarily.
