There was a time when purple hair was just for seriously eccentric characters. Nowadays however, we are free to experiment and play around with more exciting, vibrant colors than ever before.
Purple is one color with perhaps more potential when it comes to hair than any other. After all, this is one shade that can look deep and sultry with shockingly dark locks and can also be worn as a sweet candy pastel tone.
