Hair Inspiration: I need a new colour

So anyone who knows me knows I like to change my hair colour - a LOT. I've recently dyed it red and though I love it I haven't been able to get it just the right colour of red so I've given up and decided it's time for a change in colour.

I've been browsing flickr and here are some of my favourite inspiration shots with super awesome coloured hair.

IDK why but all of my hair inspiration just reminds me of this:
When I'm old, I shall have purple hair...

Can you tell I'm desperate for more purple hair again? I'm thinking I want more of a light lilac purple colour this time but I don't know if I'm brave enough to go the full head yet. I really love THIS PHOTO the best on flickr but it didn't have the "share" butoon so just click the link. It's pretty much the colour that I love but I just realised it a wig (blergh!).

What do you guys think? Should I lighten the hair and dye it purple? I think I must at least dye 70 - 80% of it light lilac because when I look at these photos I get mega hair envy.

  1. I've had that light purple hair picture saved forever - it is such a dreamy hair cut and color! What a lucky gal. :)

    So I definitely vote lighten and go purple!

  2. Srsly right.
    My attempt failed :(
    I'm seeking professional help this time - and not from the place I went to on the weekend who sold me hair dye that was too dark :(
    I wanted purple and I ended up with pink-ish.

  3. I love light pink but it's SUPER hard to maintain. Also, I know from personal experience that having light hair and then dying some pink and some purple only looks good until it's washed too much - then the pink and purple start dying the rest of the hair and being all dark and blurry;-)
