Lavender highlights aren’t too common. Highlights in general, though, pretty much are. A lot of women prefer adding highlights to their hair instead of changing their hair color whenever they want to go darker or lighter and that’s because highlights are easier to pull off and maintain.
Beautiful Lavender Highlights Hairstyles
A lot of women don’t see themselves with highlights in colors other than brown, black, or blonde. There are a few, however, who are bold enough to go for colorful highlights like lavender. If you’re one of the few who is confident enough to rock lavender highlights, though, kudos to you! Check out these awesome hairstyles for inspiration.
1. Chocolate Amethyst
This gorgeous look can be achieved by adding lavender highlights to long brunette hair. It’s a great look for those who don’t want anything too bold or too loud but still want to get some sort of a subtle statement going on in their hair.
It’s great, too, for those who want a pop of color on their dark hair without having it fried in bleach.
2. On Gray Hair
It’s hard to pull off grey hair. You might totally nail it and look like the queen that you are or you could totally fail and look like an old lady dressed up like a millennial.
One thing that can help you pull off the look is to add bold highlights to your grey hair and lavender is the perfect color for that. Think Kelly Osbourne or Katy Perry – gorgeous, right?
3. Fairy Hair
Love the ethereal look of fairies? Why not try to recreate the look with lavender highlights on your hair. This look is best achieved with a light base like blonde or light brown and with long wavy hair.
You can go all out with your highlights or you can be as subtle as you like. To complete the look, add twists and fishtail braids then accessorize as you see fit.
4. Magical Rainbow
Do you know what would look great with lavender highlights? Other pastel highlights! This would look especially epic on blonde hair and it’s the perfect way to achieve that trendy rainbow/unicorn hair that’s all over Pinterest right now! The only downside to this look, though, is that you might not be able to wear it to the office or to school
5. Purple Pixie
Rocking a pixie cut is no joke. It’s one of those hairstyles that’s not that easy to pull off. One of the risks of getting the pixie cut is that it might age you. Luckily, it’s easy to spruce it up and make it look cool, edgy, and modern by adding highlights in bold colors like lavender.
6. Going All Out
You’ve done it! You got your hair dyed a gorgeous purple ombre color so why not add the final touches and top it off with lavender highlights? This is a great way to keep your hair from looking dull and adding different shades of purple/violet as highlights and lowlights will bring a ton of dimension to your ‘do.
7. Royal Ice
Not the type to shy away from attention? Going platinum blonde with pastel lavender highlights makes for a great statement look, whether for winter or for summer. This look is the perfect cross between edgy and playful so if you’re looking for something in between those lines, this might just work for you.
8. Black and Purple Lavender
They say the downside of having black hair is that your highlights won’t show up as vividly as they would if you had lighter colored hair. If you’re looking for something subtle but cool, though, you might appreciate the look of lavender highlights on black hair.
If you’re looking for another way to add a subtle statement to your hair, peek-a-boo lavender highlights might just be what you need. These are going to look great, no matter what your hair color is.
What’s more is that you can rock these and sneak them in at work just by keeping your hair down and, when it’s time to party, you can get your hair up to reveal the surprise. Or, you can just keep your hair up in a bun with a cute lavender swirl.
Streaky highlights aren’t everyone’s cup of tea, but if it’s yours and you want something cool and unique, getting lavender highlighted streaks on your hair might just be something that’s right up your alley.
11. Cosmic Curls
If you love wearing your hair curly and you’re looking for a way to add a bit of a street style edge to your look, why not add purple lavender highlights to your hair? It’s the perfect way to get that cute, curly, cosmic look on your locks and it makes the texture of your curls look more interesting, too.
Lavender highlights are not for everyone. If you’re looking for ways to freshen up your ‘do and add some edge to your look, though, then this might be a great way to do so.
