Have you ever looked at yourself in the mirror and realized just how boring your natural hair color is? Sure, blondes are supposed to have more fun and yeah, brunettes are nearly always glossy and shiny – but when you want to spice up your life a little without listening to ‘If You Wanna Be My Lover’ 179 times, you might just have the urge to go to the shops, grab yourself a pack of hair dye, and go a little wacky. Yet, with so many colors to choose from, how do you know which wild color will suit you most? Well, the hair colors experts have the latest trend for you. Yep, we’re talking the color purple…
The new Spring thing
Wacky hair colors are here to stay, and were definitely okay with that fact. Yet, during the past few years, spring hair colors have been all about pastels and florals – and if you’re a fan of Miranda Priestly, you’ll know that that’s just soooo groundbreaking (of course, she’s totally kidding). Thankfully, the world of fashion and haircare has stepped up its game this spring, and has brought a new color onto the block. In fact, the world of Pinterest has gone purple mad…
The numbers have it
Pinterest have recently released the numbers for the amount of people searching and pinning these purple hues, and you could say they’re pretty big. In fact, the number of people saving these kinds of photographs has increased by a whopping 355% since the start of 2018 alone. Considering we’re just a few months in, that’s pretty darn impressive. Of course, the more that people search and save these photos means that more people try their hand at dying their hair purple themselves – so if you’re too scared to try it, just take a look on social media and see just how awesome it really is.
A cool new spin
According to hair experts, the main reason were so obsessed with purple as a new hair trend is because it gives us a cool new spin on dark tones as the weather starts to heat up. Gone are the days of having caramel, chocolate or black hair. Instead, it’s time to embrace a slightly lighter color – without going too light. After all, it’s not summer just yet, is it?! For the most part, these purple trends also deal with an ombre style, which means it’s super easy to maintain. There’s no roots to worry about, there’s no upkeep to stress about, and it still looks great when it starts to grow out. We’re sold already.
It’s all about the shades
However, if you want to abide by the trend completely, you can’t just pop to the store and buy any old purple dye. The shades matter! Hair trend gurus have noted that the coolest and wackiest purple shades to go for this spring are Tara (you just have to Google Tara Bubble Tea Hair, you won’t regret it), and Smoked Velvet. This color has much more of an amethyst hint to it, and is much deeper and richer than your average purple. If you have naturally dark hair, this shade will look incredible!
If you’re feeling a little bored with your appearance right now, we have an idea for you. Get some purple dye, grab a few snacks, charge your phone up, and let the dye do the work! We guarantee you that you won’t regret it…
