Are you ready to get playful with your hair color? Then you’ve got to try purple highlights. You only have to take one look at Kelly Osbourne or Justine Skye and their signature purple tresses to know that this is a seriously stunning hue for hair!

Whatever your natural color — black, brown, blonde or red — there’s a shade of purple that’s perfect for you. If you have a brown or black base, a dark or neon purple hue will complement it beautifully. For blondes, meanwhile, light or pastel shades like lilac and lavender will provide a nice accent. For an even more unique look, you can mix your purple with other colors such as pink and blue. And you can be as subtle as you like with just a few peekaboo highlights, or go all out with a bright dip-dye.

Whatever look you’re going for, one thing’s for sure: you’ll definitely be turning heads with this gorgeous hue. So if you’re ready to take the purple plunge, click through for all the inspiration you need.
