Lavender Hair

Purple Hair, Don't Care!

That's right!  I colored my hair and turned it lavender!  And I am OBSESSED.
This is something I've been wanting to do for a long time.  With my job though, I can't have "unnatural" hair color.  Fortunately and unfortunately, my job is seasonal, so at the end of this summer I decided that as soon as I was finished working for the season, I would get this done.  I am SO GLAD I did.  I just can't get over how much I love it.

I had it done at a salon that uses Aveda products.  If you know much about Aveda, you know that it is a great line of products that are beneficial to your hair and even the dyes are not nearly as harmful as traditional chemical dye jobs.

To achieve the results I was looking for, my stylist pulled the brassy tones out of my hair to turn it into a bright platinum blonde color.  She then put in the lavender color with a hint of magenta to achieve a multi-dimensional lavender color.

One of the really cool things about the color is that with all of the different shades in it, it sometimes looks pink or sometimes blue, or even has a little silver in it at times.  It is MAGICAL.  I can't wait to see what happens over the next few months as it fades and the color changes.

As always, thanks for stopping in!  I apologize for missing Foodie Friday this past week...I was out of town to get my hair done!  See you soon!


  1. This looks AMAZING!! You look beautiful! I am so so so jealous as I can never take the plunge and do the whole head! I had black hair last year with bright teal going through it - But didn't keep it long!
    You look great!!
    Very jealous!

    1. Thanks Hannah! I'm a little obsessed! Still trying to get used to the whole not washing my hair often thing...haha! It's worth it though! :D
