Gentle and feminine, a light lavender shade looks adorable on short wavy hair.

Focus on very light roots (almost white) and let the color work into somewhat brighter lavender tips.

Long Black and Purple Curls

Reverse Ombre Style

Delicate Ombre Curls

Hair does not need to be brightly colored throughout – in fact sometimes a subtler look is more desirable.

Subtle Ombre Hair

Work in a very subtle ombre color scheme if you’re looking for something not too dramatic. Some cannot go full out with purple hair due to their professional commitments. Instead, add just a little brightness with an accentuation that’s barely noticeable indoors.

Ombre Hair and Angled Cut

Violet ombre often seems tame compared to what’s out there. If you want to go for something bold, vibrant and truly unique, try coloring your hair a variety of bright hues. From hot pink to neon green, there are so many colors you can work in for a truly diverse, rainbow look.

Are you tired of your current hair color and style? Next time you go to the salon, go a little bolder than you normally would and try out a hair color that’s not found in nature. The result will surprise you as you are going to experience a confident, creative and unique look, not easily duplicated.
