Beauty Note: Pretty in Purple

Lauren Conrad's pretty purple hair

As I’ve mentioned before, I keep temporary pink hair dye in my shower for whenever I’m in the mood for a fun beauty look. Sometimes on a Friday I’ll work some pink dye into my mane and enjoy pink-tipped tresses until Monday when I wash my hair again. It’s a fun off-duty look for the weekend.

But this time, I decided to take the plunge and try a semi-permanent color. This one stays in for 6 to 8 weeks before washing out. I really didn’t think that purple was my color, but after seeing several others wear it recently, I decided to give it a try. I also tested out the dye on a small section of hair underneath, before coloring my whole mane—which I always recommend. It just goes to show that you should never knock a trend until you try it…

UPDATE: Happy April Fool’s Day everyone! I tricked you yesterday with a photoshopped snapshot of my mane. I’m not sure that I’m really ready for purple tresses yet!

What do you think of my purple locks? Would you ever dye your hair a pastel shade?
