Ready to book your color update? Look no further for inspo because lilac hair is trending in a major way. From ashy to metallic and even a rosier take on the super color, lilac is just what the stylist ordered to get you spring-ready. Think of the hue as 2019’s rose gold—it’s bubbly and infectious but in a bolder way. Until there are actual lilacs in bloom, this see-it, do-it color is all we need to get through the worst of the season—just look at your locks and remember spring is in sight!
Versatile lilac has an undeniable softness, especially when purposely washed out and with tinges of grey.
Lived in Lilac
For those who want to look like they just woke up with lilac hair, keep it on the darker side, which works to convey an unmistakable ease.
Our fave lowlights for platinum ladies? You guessed it – lilac is the perf way to transition from Elsa to spring sunshine in an unexpected way.
Make it Metallic
This stunning metallic twist on lilac catches the light from every angle, making your purple shimmer and glow.
Lilac and Classic
The shade is just as pretty saturated and monochrome. No matter the technique, lilac is incapable of looking dull.
There are many shades and dimensions to the IRL flower, and that comes across when infused with (our other go-to happy color) rose.
Color placement is getting a whole lot more interesting. Instead of concentrating color at the ends of the hair, or highlighting select strands to frame the face, color block your lilac. Going from dark to light and back to dark is the illumination hack we’ve been missing.
Ultra Violet Lilac
Want in on the neon trend but still more of a pastel girl at heart? Enter this heightened shade of lilac, which was created using Guy Tang’s Pretoned Pearl Express Toner, mixed with Ultra Violet booster for filer-level saturation.
One of the prettiest takes on the lilac hair trend we’ve seen, this color literally splashes shine.
