meet the purple unicorn

Beloved by her many fans as “The Purple Unicorn,” singer Justine Skye blew up the Internet at just 16 with a hugely popular Tumblr page showcasing her unique personality, style, soulful voice…and curly, bright-purple tresses. The Brooklyn-born artist soon joined the legendary Atlantic Records roster and in 2013 released her first EP, “Everything Living.” The following summer saw the arrival of Justine’s biggest hit to date, “Collide (Feat. Tyga),” which proved a top 40 favorite on the Billboard “US R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay” chart upon its August 2014 release. Fast forward to today with the release of her latest CD, “Emotionally Unavailable” and we’re seeing Justine evolve both musically and stylistically. Still wearing the trademark purple-kissed tresses beloved by fans, she’s now playing with sleeker hairstyles and more subtle tints of purple—as shown in this streamlined, side-parted coif. We love watching Justine’s style evolve, don’t you?
