Lavender Hair

What is lavender hair?

Lavender hair is a cool-toned, light purple shade. This ultra-flattering pastel purple color is the most popular at the moment and looks great on fair, medium and dark skin tones. The most requested shade of lavender is a blend of lilac, lavender and silver. It’s worth noting that this pretty pastel shade has more blue undertones than pink—so it’s perfect for those who want to try violet hair but aren’t keen on pinks or purples.

  • Gather up your supplies. A small bowl, a tint brush, a pair of gloves, a towel and some clips will help you get the job done right.
  • Make sure your hair is clean and dry before you begin applying the color mixture to your curls.
  • To start coloring, separate your hair into sections of about two to four inches thick and secure with clips so they’re out of your way while you work (this will also ensure even coverage). Begin applying the color in each section at the roots—using an upward motion—and work toward the ends.
  • Once all of the hair is colored, cover it with a plastic cap and leave it on for 30-45 minutes (or follow the directions on whichever product you use). This will allow the dye to develop properly! Rinse out any excess color until only slight tint remains in your curls before proceeding to step 5.
  • Use moisturizing shampoo and conditioner after rinsing out most of dye from hair, then dry it completely as normal before styling as usual!

Lavender Undercut hair

The color is just the starting point of this look. Once you’ve got a lilac hue, consider adding in an undercut. This will give it a bit of an edge, making it perfect for those who want to show off their rocker chick side.

Lavender Fade hair

Lavender Fade hair is a great way to edge into the trend. The lavender hair color is more prominent at the roots and fades out to a lighter purple as it gets closer to your ends. This look can be achieved by using the balayage technique with a freehand brush technique or foils. To preserve this gorgeous color, use a sulfate-free shampoo, wash it less often and dry shampoo for extra days in between.

Faded Lavender Ombré hair

This color looks like the most natural out of all these options. If you’re ready to take your lavender hair color to the next level, try this ombré style and watch it fade into a perfect, pastel lavender. Since it’s a more subtle look, you can wear this faded lavender ombré to work and feel like you’re blending in with the crowd.

It’s also easy to maintain if you have naturally dark hair because roots will be pretty hard to spot as it grows out!

If you really want your color to pop, make sure your fresh highlights are well conditioned so they don’t look dull. Mulberry is a great tone for keeping that vibrant purple from fading quickly!

For this take on the trend, you’ll want to keep your roots dark, then add in a light lavender shade that goes from your mid-lengths to your ends. The contrast between your darker roots and lighter lavender hair strands will help you get a dimensional ‘do while still sprinkling some pastel into the mix.

Braided Accents hair

For a more subtle take on lavender hair, try mixing it with gray. The blend of cool pastel purple and white is still eye-catching but much softer than the bright color you see in cotton candy. If you’re not ready to commit to a full head of lavender hair, this might be the perfect look for you!

Metallic Purple Candy hair

If you want to really pop, the metallic purple candy hair look is the one for you! You’ll need to have your hair bleached light enough that the color is able to take. The lighter the better!

This shade gives hair an iridescent quality. It appears as a blue-ish purple when in shadow, but reflects as a magenta-pink in direct light. If this look is for you, be sure to get some upkeep appointments so your stylist can keep it bright and shiny.

  • Pick a color to use as the base of your hair.
  • A purple conditioner can help keep your hair vibrant between treatments.
  • Use a primary lavender dye, mixed with a little bit of the secondary color you picked out earlier, at the roots of your hair for about five minutes.
  • After about fifteen minutes, rinse the hair dye out of your hair and let it dry completely before styling it.

How to get it: Lavender hair locks require bleaching, so it’s important that you bring a photo of your desired hair color to your salon appointment. If you have very pale blonde hair, all you need is a toner. But if you have darker hair, your stylist will need to use bleach in order to achieve the delicate purple hue.

How to style it: Keep lavender tresses looking fresh by using a purple shampoo and conditioner every other time that you wash your hair. As with any pastel color, this will help retain the hue while keeping your strands healthy and hydrated.

Two-Tone Lavender Bob hair

“You can channel your inner punk rocker with this chic and edgy style,” says Moko. “This look can be customized in several different ways, from the placement of the lavender hair to creating a more natural melted look.”

For this look, Moko used Guy Tang Mydentity permanent hair color in Ultra Violet Purple on pre-lightened hair, then glazed it using Olaplex treatment with Joico Intensity semi-permanent color in Titanium.

To achieve this shade of lavender hair yourself at home, you will want to start with bleached hair and use a demi-permanent color because it won’t damage your locks as much as a permanent one. Moko recommends the Pravana Vivids Wild Orchid for a similar shade.

Instructions:

  • Mix together an equal amount of Joico Blue and Joico Violet.
  • Apply the color with a tint brush to the hair in sections, starting at the back and working forward.
  • Use foils so that each section is separated from the other. This will provide more even color results when you rinse out your hair later on.
  • Let your color sit for about 30 minutes, and then rinse it out with cold water until all pigment is removed from your hair.

Lavender Highlights hair

These lavender highlights are a great way to dip your toes into the color trend. Pick up a few packets of purple dye, and use them to streak sections of your hair. The result is something that’s totally temporary but still an eye-catching way to play with color.

Lavender hair Buzz Cut

Okay, so it’s not really a buzz cut, but this carefully clipped pixie gets the job done. You can get this look with the help of either a barber or stylist. Ask for a graduated bob—a longer one if desired—that has been sheared out on top and is shorter in the back. The layers will help to show off your new color!

If you are looking for an edgy undercut, we recommend asking your stylist to create an asymmetrical bob rather than trying it yourself at home.

How to make lavender hair color

  • Set aside 2-3 hours.
  • Start with bleached hair (a pale yellow shade). If you have blonde hair, it’s probably already light enough to use lavender dye without bleaching.
  • Make sure your hair is clean and dry before you begin.
  • Wash the bleach out of your hair with shampoo/conditioner. Towel dry.
  • Apply the lavender dye to your hair using gloves and a tinting brush. Keep in mind that this kind of color tends to fade pretty quickly, so you may want to make the color slightly darker than you want it for when it starts fading.

Follow the instructions on the box for how long to leave in your new color—usually about 30 minutes or so is enough time, but check with your particular product.

How to maintain lavender hair

Use a purple shampoo

  • Use a purple shampoo. If you’ve dyed your hair lavender, it’s important to use a shampoo that won’t strip the color from your hair. A purple shampoo will neutralize any yellow tones in your hair, so that you can maintain your brilliant color.
  • Use a toning conditioner. Over time, warm water from showers can strip the vibrant hues from lavender-dyed locks and leave them looking more violet than lavender, especially if your hair is already naturally warm-toned to begin with. Using a toning conditioner on a regular basis will help to keep the purple tones in your hair strong and clear.
  • Use a semi-permanent dye. While at-home dyes are great for trying out new colors before you commit to them, they often don’t stay as vibrant as store-bought dyes do over time, since they’re not permanent colors on their own.

To maintain the strength of your lavender dye job without committing completely to it yet (in case you have something big coming up like an interview or wedding), consider using a semi-permanent dye that’s specially formulated for keeping color vivid and shiny without fading over time.

Touch up at home with a semi-permanent dye

Instead of going to the salon every month, you can extend your lavender hair’s lifespan by doing touch ups at home. A semi-permanent dye is an awesome option if you want a toned down shade of purple and are looking for more control over how you maintain it.

Unlike permanent dye, semi-permanent hair color only deposits color onto the surface of each strand and doesn’t penetrate into the inner layers. That means the pigment will fade significantly faster, but also makes it so much easier to maintain!

Keep in mind that even though semi-permanent dyes are generally less harsh than permanent ones, this is still a big change from your natural color. To keep your locks super healthy, hold off on using bleach or any heavy chemicals for a few months until your hair has grown back out enough to withstand them.

If you decide to go with this option, it’s important to remember that these types of dyes don’t last forever either; they need to be reapplied every 4-6 weeks depending on the brand used.

Don’t wash your hair as often

  • The first and most important step in maintaining lavender hair is simple: don’t wash it as often. Some people with dry hair should only wash it once or twice a week, while others with oily hair may need to wash it every day. It’s important to know your particular needs and do what feels right for you.
  • The second thing to keep in mind is that heat is one of the worst things for dyed hair, so if you can’t stand the cold (hello, winter), make sure to use lukewarm water when washing your hair. This will help minimize damage caused by hot water on your strands.

Use a toning conditioner

The next step in lavender hair maintenance is to use a toning conditioner. Conditioner will keep your lavender color looking great by restoring moisture and keeping it from fading. It will also keep your hair soft and moisturized, which is especially important if you dye your hair regularly.

We recommend using a [brand] conditioner after every shampoo, as long as you don’t have an oily scalp or otherwise over-conditioned hair.

When using conditioner, apply it to the tips of your hair only, leaving the roots and scalp bare. After applying the conditioner, massage it into the ends for about three to five minutes before rinsing thoroughly and enjoying your soft, hydrated locks!

Your lavender hair will stay vibrant if you follow these steps

It takes a bit more attention to upkeep than standard hair dye, but it’s doable. By following the next few steps, you’ll ensure that you can enjoy your lavender hair locks for as long as possible.

  • Be patient. Your new color will last longer if you wait two weeks before washing it for the first time. This allows your hair to absorb the dye fully and prevents premature fading.
  • Use a toning conditioner regularly to maintain color vibrancy and shine during daily washes.
  • Be careful about what products you use on your newly dyed hair; not every product is created equal when it comes to preserving lavender hues! Shampoos specifically made for colored hair are best because they are gentler than traditional shampoos and won’t fade or dull the purple in your hair.

A purple shampoo is also great at keeping tones bright and vibrant while conditioning the scalp and strands too!

  • Touch up at home with a semi-permanent dye that matches your original purple shade if any roots begin to grow out of place.
