Trend to try: violet locks
We love a beauty trend or two around these parts.
We jumped aboard the balayage train as soon as Giselle showed us how it was done, and grabbed ourselves a winged liner after Dita Von Teese made it famous, Why? Well, just like the celebrities that start these trends know, discovering ways to express ourselves – especially through striking hair and make-up looks – is really empowering, and can make us feel beautiful and more confident, too.
One particularly striking trend we’re loving right now is violet hair. It’s a bold, vibrant look that’s perfect for anyone who wants to inject a bit of colour into their day-to-day look. And the best bit is it can be done a number of different ways, which means there’s an achievable way for you to enjoy this trend, and feel supremely beautiful, no matter how standout you want to be…
Fairy floss violet a la Kelly Osbourne
This subtle violet look is perfect for those with lighter hair who want to experience a ‘fairy floss’ type of hair colour. It’s becoming more and more popular amongst A-listers, with celebrities like Katy Perry, Lady Gaga and Demi Lovato jumping on the bandwagon.
Violet dip-dyed ends a la Christina Aguilera
Though made famous by Lauren Conrad, other celebrities have adopted the dip-dyed look and made it their own, just like Christina Aguilera. Apply it to the ends of your hair or have fun with colour by teaming it with shades to really express yourself.
Striking violet a la Jessie J
If you’relooking to change up your whole look with a hair hue that’s bold and exciting, then this is the perfect way to do it. This ultra-vibrant violet hue makes brown eyes pop and ensures that your ‘do is definitely the focus of your whole look.
The violet tint a la Katy Perry
If you’re after an understated way to rock the violet hair trend, a violet tint is perfect for you – especially if you already have red, dark brown or black locks. It gives your hair a three-dimensional appearance by warming up your colour and providing it with instant depth. To get the look, we recommend using Schwarzkopf Brilliance Intense Permanent Hair Colour in 49 Dark Red Violet.
As you can see, these celebs are anything but ‘shrinking violets’, which just proves our point that expressing yourself with standout hair and beauty looks can really help to boost your self-confidence and make you feel beautiful in your own way. And that’s exactly why Schwarzkopf has created BE.YOU.TIFUL Confessions – a campaign that encourages you to be proud of how your beauty rituals make you feel – even if they see you spending hours getting ready, or seem strange or quirky. It’s all about embracing the things that make you feel beautiful, no matter what other people think…
So how exactly do BE.YOU.TIFUL Confessions work? Here’s the deal… Simply share your confessions with Schwarzkopf (be it that you secretly long for bright pink hair, or that you always squeeze your pimples) and you’ll be in the running to win weekly prizes. There’ll be 10 prize packs given away each week for nine weeks. It’s super-easy to enter, just head to the beautifulconfessions.com.au website or Schwarzkopf Australia Facebook page and get confessing!
And if you’re ready for an instant confidence boost, try one of the intense violet shades in the Schwarzkopf Brilliance range. Our Trial Team members recently road-tested the Brilliance range and raved about the outstanding vibrancy of the colour after the trial, which they described as looking healthy and shiny immediately after application. Better still, they even found that the vibrancy increased further after a few washes!
