Woman with short purple hair

Purple actually looks great in hair, especially darker hair because it’s a subtle coloring that isn’t the usual blond or auburn.  Of course short haircuts are popular these days (very popular).

I think you’ll be impressed with many short purple hair ideas below in our collection below.  You’ll see what I mean how purple offers a subtle color to dark hair that can really look fabulous.


If you're looking for a unique look that will standout, try adding a neon tint to your hairstyle.
