Trend Of The Month

Purple Party!

Ladies it’s time to reign in purple! Why? Shades of lavender, grape and lilac are stunning on rich, dark skin tones. Check out these easy ways you can play with purple…

1-14Ultra-violet tresses look stunning in this style. Michelle McCloud of Texturz Hair Studio in Duluth, GA, created movement and texture by layering the crown of this look. The front and shorter sides are all drenched in an iridescent violet shade.

 

2-14We love the grape soda soaked tips! An edgy silhouette is created with an asymmetric cut and pointed fringe. To add even more drama, hair stylist Angelle “Superstar” Clarke, of Salon Awesome in Los Angeles, CA, dipped the tips in a vibrant purple hue.

11-13The pop of amethyst in these tresses by Toni Moore, of Le Tres Chic Hair Divas in Fremont, CA, is amazing! This pixie cut is styled into sharp layers. The crown is lifted into gravity-defying flips adorned with pops of amethyst and plum.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

STAR STYLE INSPIRATION: Justine Skye

There is no way we could spotlight this hue without talking about “The Purple Unicorn” herself—Justine Skye. This songstress has set the standard for plum hair color. Here, the “U Don’t Know” singer rocked her purple strands in a waist-kissing, sleek coif. No wonder this stylish sister is the newest Haircolor Ambassador for the Dark and Lovely family and the muse behind the Go Intense! Haircolor shade Passion Plum.
