When it comes to unnatural hair shades, pastel passion is still going strong and there is no shade quite so alluring as lavender hair color. For those who want to achieve an other-worldly, unnatural hair color that subtly mesmerises, pastel hair dye is the way forward.
Plenty of celebs have tried out this soft shade of purple. Actress, Anna Paquin showed off her Instagram worthy lavender locks and we absolutely loved them. Demi Lovato opted for a punk vibe with her new purple ‘do, blending it with other shades of blue and pink. Her rainbow hairstyle can be easily achieved at home by sectioning off your hair before you apply your dye. Nicole Richie was also spotted sporting a short lavender style, proving that this color can be both fun and sophisticated.
If you want the best lavender hair dye that will give you the understated, smoky color of your dreams, trust us when we say that semi-permanent products are the only way to get a true pastel shade outside of the salon.
Semi-permanent lavender hair color coats and tints the hair shaft without chemically altering your color. Of course, you will have to lighten your hair with a bleaching treatment before a semi-permanent dye can give you the pastel shade you want.
If you leave your hair one to two weeks between bleaching treatments, it should have enough time to recover. Just remember to give your tresses some serious TLC while you’re waiting. Deeply condition your hair to make sure it is as strong and healthy as possible for applying bleach and hair dye.
To achieve a true pastel ‘do, you will need to make sure your hair is as light as possible so your natural darker color doesn’t show through. You may also want to consider using toner on your hair to neutralize the brassy tones that the bleach will have left behind. Starting with a blank canvas is the best way to achieve a gorgeous lavender hue.
In the event that your lightened hair is not pale enough to use pastel hair dye, all is not lost! Try a dusty purple hair dye for dark hair in a deeper shade, such as Manic Panic’s Amplified Semi-Permanent Hair dye in Deep Purple dream. This gorgeous lilac hair dye is dark enough to cover light brown or yellow hair, while still having the smoky undertones of its lighter, lavender counterpart.
One final top-tip, if your hair requires a lot of lightening and you’re going for a different pale shade such as pastel pink hair dye, be patient and use a semi-permanent lavender hair color first. If bleaching your hair has left even a hint of yellow or orange, pastel pink hair dye simply will not cover it. Instead, you’ll find the brassy tones in your hair blend with the pink to create a rose-gold color, which might be rather beautiful - but it isn’t what you’re going for. We recommend using the palest semi-permanent lavender dye you can lay your hands on (we love Manic Panic Creamtones Perfect Pastel Hair in Velvet Violet) to neutralise the golden tones. Then you can apply your chosen pastel hair dye once the purple has faded out to get the look you want.
It might be impossible to make extremely light or bright purple hair dye permanent, but there is a lot we can do to make it long-lasting. Pastel hair dye requires a fair amount of maintenance to keep it looking good – but it’s so worth it!
Here are a few tips which can help you keep your color fresher for longer:
