Lavender hair is decidedly feminine, especially as it evokes its floral counterpart. However, the recent changes in modern popular media with all the elves and faes entering mainstream conversation, we can confidently say that lavender is a spicy hot trend.
Moreover, who won’t love sassy but pretty looks? The appeal of purple as a hip color plus some soft undertones have made lavender an increasingly popular hair color option.
The Best Lavender Hair Color for Your Skin Tone
Lavender may be a harder hair color to match because of the blue hue and pale undertones. Those with pale skin may end up with a whitewashed look, while those with yellow skin tones may end up being more orangey than they would like. Olive skin tones would also be a hard match. But we have all the pretty looks to match all skin tones.
A deeper lavender hue will fit those with fairer skin, adding hints of copper or reds can balance yellow skin tones. For warmer olive tones, we recommend keeping lavender hues at the hair edges and away from the face as much as possible as the lavender shade clashes with the green tones of the skin.
