Dark purple hair: it’s a dream come true! As you might guess from its name, the dark purple color category involves deep shades of purple. Specifically, this category involves the following hair hues: dark amethyst, purple blue, mauve, dark purplish pink, smoky purple, dark purple magenta, dark true purple, electric violet, deep plum, and dark purple ombre.
Who can choose dark purple?
- Ladies with cool complexion (if they opt for pinkish purple, for example, magenta);
- Ladies with warm complexion (only if they go for cool violet, preferably with blue undertones).
Despite its brightness, dark purple is quite sophisticated. Practically anyone can pull it off. Discover our gallery and pick your perfect shade of purple!
Dark Purple Roots Into Ash Hair Color

Purple comes in so many delicious shades that flatter both cool and warm complexions and there are many other tones that highlight both it and you. So, why should you choose just one? Choose a few! Better yet, go for a purple hair ombre and let one gorgeous color cascade down into several. This stunning look begins with a rich dark purple hair color as the base color at the root and then fades slightly into lavender and silver, and then bursts into ash at the bottom. Ash provides fullness, so if you have fine hair, you’ll adore the effect. The brighter colors especially compliment those with light, cool complexions.

If you have black hair and want to try something cool, fun, and different from the same old color choices, but still aren’t yet ready for a complete change, the purple colored look is the one for you. You can pretty much use any purple shade you want in nearly any style and all will look classy. Purple highlights in black hair are stunning and you can put in only enough to be noticed when you’re out in the sun or cover half your head with a vibrant dark purple hair color that makes your already shiny hair reflect even more light. Take it up a few notches with a contemporary short cut and a cool geometric undercut, like this three-dimensional cube.

The color melt technique is a relatively new hair trend that looks amazing with purple. The technique takes two colors and blends them seamlessly, as if they “melted” together naturally. Selecting a warm and cool shade is certainly attractive and you’ll never go wrong with such a safe choice. But, if you’re feeling daring (keep in mind that purple represents bravery), perhaps one day you’ll select a deep, dark purple color, which will give you dark roots, and then maybe a pastel color, such as lilac, into which the dark purple will “melt.” Whether you have a cool or warm complexion, the color will look good on you. This melt combines pastel shades of lavender and pink, which look lovely against a fair complexion.

But, they go together splendidly. And, not just as a popular combination for hip, young people. It can look elegant, romantic, serious, playful, and, of course, young and hip. Display all of your personalities vividly with hot pink and dark purple hair. Some purple hairstyles ideas with the stunning blend include pink and purple ombres, highlights, duos, and melts. This duo blends a rich purple hue with lavender on a contemporary wispy cut and looks gorgeous on this model. Normally, lavenders are for fair complexions, but since purple is creative and independent, it has a mind of its own and will break the rules.

If you have naturally dark colored hair and have been yearning to try the unnatural hair color craze, purple’s the one for you. We noted previously that purple looks amazing on black hair and that nearly any shade would look great. The same essentially goes with all darker hair tones, including medium and dark browns. Purple lilac even flatters dark ginger. Purple’s a great choice, too, if you want to keep it simple, start out easy, or maintain a subtle, classy look. This model’s dark hair with purple highlights is just one example of how sophisticated and polished a purple hue can look. This model’s rich black hair makes a beautiful backdrop for the various mauve tones.
Aubergine Hair Color
Eggplant or aubergine is an awesome color. It’s bold, self-assured, self-sufficient, and just a little bit rebellious. When you add it to your hair, people will instantly notice you and they will be unable to look away. An aubergine hair color turns every woman into the hot girl with dark purple hair. Like this stunning model, the deep, rich aubergine color looks best on those with a dark skin tone and olive skin tone. It’ll also flatter any eye color and make them both pop with barely any makeup. For even more drama, layer in a navy shade. Or, if you have a light skin tone and really want to try aubergine, pair it with plum, which has warm undertones.
Purple Curly Hair

Naturally curly hair is more porous than straight hair, more vulnerable to breakage, and needs tons of moisture to stay healthy. It’s high maintenance even without color. Adding purple which, if you’re brown haired or African American, might also require lightening beforehand and thus cause damage and dryness. But, just look at that photo. It magnificently shows a range of purple tones. There’s pink, lavender, mauve, and even magenta. Add the curls add further dimension and excitement to the mix of colors. It’s as if the colors are in motion. It’s just spectacular. To help purple curly hair better retain the dye and look its best, condition your hair with unrefined coconut oil or an intense conditioning treatment the evening before you color.

There’s nothing more gorgeous than a long mane of purple curly hair. No, wait, that’s wrong. A long, curly mane of hot pink and dark purple hair is certainly just as gorgeous. Or, perhaps a curly mane of blue black hair with multiple shades of purples, pinks, and blues. Now, that is dazzling. Notice how the model’s dark brown hair and roots are still discernible, even with all these wonderful purple colors winding through her curls, like stunning ribbons. All those bright purple tones bring out the beauty in her natural color. You might not have noticed her natural color before, but now, it shines with a healthy glow.
Mermaid In Shades Of Purple
If you research purple hair ideas for long hair, you may come across articles that reference mermaid hair. It’s a relatively new style. It mostly uses numerous pastel colors, like pinks and blues, which are more like sea colors, and blends them all together. Typically, the hair is long, but stylists and individuals have achieved the look on shorter lengths, as well. A purple mermaid, like the one in the photo, blends a few shades of purple onto a waterfall-like pattern. The look blends the rich, dark shade of magenta, which is an ideal choice for those with warm undertones, with orchid, an ideal choice for those with cool undertones. The look is just right for her medium skin, long hair, and curls.

Purple and blue balayage is the newest dye obsession. Due to the resemblance to the night sky full of stars, this coloring technique is also called galaxy dye. And these colors are analogous, that is, their mixture will be harmonious rather than contrast in a stark way.
