My friend told me a few months ago that I should put some purple in my hair, and the time has come when I am bored enough with my hair to do that. My question for you is, what shade of purple should I use and where should I put it? What dye do you suggest I buy? Should I do it underneath, or put a streak or two in? I need suggestions :)

Your hair looks pretty dark, are you planning on stripping or bleaching it first? I would go to my hair stylist first to get another opinion. I would probably get it done there too.

I would use pastel purple like the models at Proenza Schouler at the spring/summer ’10

I think I will go to my stylist. What do you guys think of this placement?

If I got it there, do you think I should go with the pastel purple or a deeper purple?

I’m not too sure about placement, but I’m still in love with the color of Manic Panic’s purple haze dye.

The owner of my hairdresser’s salon has purple under her hair and purple in her bangs. She’s 55 though…

I used to dye my hair cherry red in high school. I guess my reason was that I wanted to look different. When I was 19/20 I worked as a cook and put purple streaks in my hair. I never had issues. My boss didn't care since I worked in the kitchen and never dealt with customers. My husband thought it was cute hairstylezz . I think as long as you can pull it off it's nice. I don't find it unattractive in itself. It depends if the person can pull it off. I figure most people have similar reasons I did, just to look different. Now I'll admit sometimes I may see a really wild dye job and grin but hey if they're brave enough to go out then more power to them. I agree it can interfere with work depending on what you do. But once again it depends what you do. If you work at Hard Rock Cafe you're probably ok. If you are a teller at a bank then they might have an issue. Is it unfair? Sure, but that's life.
