20 Versatile Ideas of Purple Highlights for Blonde, Brown and Red Hair

Putting bright colors in your hair can be so much fun! Any color of the rainbow is literally at your fingertips, including all shades of purple! It was once a color of royalty, reserved only for the wealthiest and most revered, because the sources of the color itself were very rare (like pretty gross – snails and Sea Urchins!) But now, we have “animal free” versions of all shades available, if you choose to unleash your creativity and indulge in bold or soft and tender purple highlights!

Hair Colors Which Pair Best with Purple Highlights

It all depends on the intensity of purple and the base color. The darkest and the brightest purples set off the depth and richness of dark brown and black hair, while pastel purple (like a lavender hue) can serve as an exquisite accent for cool toned blondes. Purples sprinkled through cherry red hair are another bright story for daring girls. Look through the following images for inspiration!

Leave one strand blonde… just because you can!
