Why Short Purple Hair is So Becoming

Why purple? And why short hair as opposed to long? Regardless of the length, purple hair is very much in demand these days. And short purple hair is becoming very mainstream!

Purple is so versatile. If you are feeling bold and fierce, a deep purple color can bring out your inner goth girl. Are you feeling girly and chic? A pretty soft lilac is very pretty, especially on short hair. Purple hair can match any vibe...from punk rock to mermaid to fairy princess!

Thanks to advanced hair color techniques, there are countless options for short purple hair. You can opt for a dark base with deep purple highlights, a soft and subtle chestnut brown, and lavender balayage blend or even a dark to light purple ombre fade.

Tips for Short Purple Hair

Choosing a Shade of Purple

Not sure what shade of purple will look best for you? Again, anything goes when it comes to hair color these days. But if you want to find a shade that compliments your complexion, here are some suggestions:

  • Neutral Undertones: Almost every shade will match your skin tone!
  • Pink/Cool Undertones: Pastels and deep Violets will go nicely with your complexion.
  • Olive/Yellow/Warm Undertones: You should stick with warmer shades such as a pretty lilac or a rich magenta.

How to Maintain Purple Hair Color

  • If you have dark hair you should bleach your hair before coloring. Bleach your hair and then wait a day or two before dying it purple. (If you have bleached your hair within the last 6-8 months or have recently colored your hair, it is best to strip your hair rather than bleach it. Bleaching your hair to often can damage your hair.
  • Use color safe shampoos, conditioners and other hair products (sulfate and alcohol free) to help preserve your short purple hair color. Do not wash your hair more than once or twice a week to keep it from fading.  Dry shampoos and leave in conditioners can help your color last a bit longer as well.
  • Avoid excessive heat. Do not blow dry or style with heat if possible to keep your hair from drying out and fading.
  • Wear a hat when going out in the sun to prevent the sun from fading and damaging your hair.
  • If you go swimming, wear a bathing cap to keep the chlorine from damaging your short purple hair.
  • Touch up your roots as needed. Mix a little of your purple hair color with conditioner and leave on for 10 minutes between hair colorings.
  • Keep your hair hydrated. Coconut oil is a great natural conditioner and doesn't’ fade most hair colors.
