Lavender, violet, plum; call it what you want but celebrities are hopping on the purple hair trend train left and right and we’re not mad about it.
Paquin traded her blond locks for an overall violet hue with some blue highlights, while Kesha went with a lighter, pinkish-purple look.

This isn’t necessarily a look that many of us could pull off (or get away with, hello, office dress code). It’s actually really flattering. The lighter purples almost look like a really bright, glamorous, dreamy blond. It’s bold and bright, but yet it’s starting to look very normal.
Plus, there is something so refreshing and confident about rocking a look that is anything but mainstream. I, for one, plan on buying some hair chalk and experimenting with some semi-permanent looks over the weekend.
In fact, Glamour has a little cheat sheet on how to get this non-committal violet look here.
In a recent interview, Kelly Osbourne commented on her purple hair and the idea of standing out and going bold with her beauty, “We want to fit in, but what I’ve realized is that the only way you’ll really fit in is by being yourself. Wear whatever makes you feel beautiful, whatever makes you feel confident.”
A pretty great rule of thumb, wild hair or not.
