Pink ombre hair is great for the creative babe with long hair. Try this pink and purple hair combination on fair skin with pink undertones. This hair looks great in both straight and wavy styles.

 

2. Light Brown and Purple Ombre

Purple ombre hair is a great idea when brunette hair is at the top half of the head. This way, your natural hair can still frame your face and suit your look, while the purple color becomes richer as you move down the length of your hair.

 

3. Blue and Purple Blend
