Creative Blue Purple Hair Combos
This creative two-toned hair color offers many versatile options you can play with. You can choose between pastel, soft shades or join the dark side for rich, night sky hues. Blue-purple hair color can be applied to all hair lengths, from long locks to short pixie.
Owning ultra-pigmented hair entails commitment! Washing your hair with color-safe shampoos and conditioners, limiting your wash days, treating your strands to hair masks, and regularly visiting your favorite stylist for touch-ups are necessary to preserve those heavenly colors.
Before your next hair appointment, check out these photos of trendy blue and purple hair colors!
#1: Short Colorful Pixie Cut
To help you get a stunning look, I recommend this short, colorful blue and purple pixie cut with a side part and bangs. You must make sure to choose the right hues of blue and purple for your complexion. Otherwise, they won’t complement each other. When talking with your colorist, explain that you want the colors mixed. Be aware that upkeep may require more touch-ups as the dye will fade faster than a single-hue hair color. For best results, use Matrix Color Sync Demi Permanent Hair Color with Clear Gloss. This product can give you up to 16 shampoos of vibrant color.
#2: Electric Blue and Purple Streaks
Boost your hair with electric blue and purple streaks. Try to avoid washing and styling your hair too often with this color, as it can cause premature fading. Use a good color-enhancing shampoo and treatment. It will help maintain the glow of your color between salon visits.
#3: Alluring Blue and Purple Tones
Try blue and purple tones paired with loose waves to get that alluring mermaid hair you’ve always wanted. To get this color, you should lighten your hair first. A repairing and moisturizing hair mask would be needed to keep your hair healthy.
#4: Amazing Blue and Purple Balayage Hair
Here’s an amazing blue and purple balayage hair color. To get a gorgeously vivid blue and purple, you must do a global blond. After you achieve the desired blonde, you can create the balayage peaks and valleys with alternating blue and purple. Don’t forget vivids do tend to fade. So using color-safe cleansers like Hairstory New Wash Original will maintain it much longer.
#5: Beautiful Blue and Purple Blend
I recommend going with blues and purples if you want vivid colors. Vivids are a lot more to maintain. So I advise keeping the colors as bright as possible using products for color-treated hair. I suggest Matrix Keep Me Vivid. Also, for maintenance, washing your hair in cold water and going as long as possible in between washes is better.
#6: Vivid Blue-Purple Waves
Vivid blue-purple waves are a striking choice for those who want to make a bold statement with their hair. Avoiding excessive heat styling and prolonged sun exposure is important to maintain vibrancy. These can cause color fading. Invest in sulfate-free shampoos and conditioners formulated for color-treated hair. They help preserve the vibrancy and health of your locks. Deep conditioning your hair can also help keep it hydrated and prevent damage. With the right care and styling, you can easily rock e-purple waves.
#7: Galaxy-Inspired Velvet Hair
A galaxy-inspired velvet hairstyle is a hair color to consider. You must pre-lighten to a pale level 9 for an even canvas when dyeing your hair blue and purple. Ask for a global blonde with a vivid color application. Make sure to use Olaplex to maintain your hair’s integrity. Washing in cool water will help maintain brightness. Use a gentle cleanser like Hairstory’s New Wash Original.
#8: Electric Deep Purple with Blue Tint
Electric deep purple with a blue tint on medium-length hair is a fabulous look for drama and depth. The combo of purple and blue will ensure a unique and vibrant color. To make the look even more interesting, to help add dimension to the hair, add large waves with a curling iron or wand. The waves will help create movement and bring out the blue tint in the deep purple.
#9: Baby Blue Hair with Light Purple Highlights
Baby blue hair with light purple highlights is a look that pairs well with long straight hair with bangs. To ensure it’s on point, start with a quality product. Use an argan oil-based shampoo and conditioner. After washing and drying your hair, use a flat iron to straighten your strands. Adding light purple highlights pairs well with your baby blue base color. Use a texturizing spray to complete the look and keep your hair from looking flat. With this look, you will be sure to make a lasting impression!
#10: Teal, Purple, and Midnight Blue
Teal, purple, and midnight blue stir up a fun, lively shade variation for long hair. The vividness it offers from roots to ends is undeniable. Perk up an ombre style like this with beachy waves for added movement and texture.
#11: Edgy and Creative Blue-Purple Long Hair
Edgy bluish-purple hair is a masterpiece. This hair color is something you see only sometimes. It’s usually seen in magazines, runways, or social media. It will require high upkeep to keep it looking as amazing as it did when leaving the salon. Remember that your personality, lifestyle, wardrobe, and makeup must match your hair.
#12: Short Fluffy Purple-Blue Bob with Curtain Bangs
When going for a fantasy color, picking a color palette that compliments each other can be useful. I recommend cooler tones that will live well on your hair together for a softer look and fade out. Tying in the color with a showstopper curtain fringe will have everyone staring.
#13: Blue and Purple on Black Hair
This is black with streaks of purple and blue colors done right by colorist Diane. Those beautiful colors just peeking through jet-black hair works wondrously.
#14: Silver, Blue, and Lilac
Glittery pastel tones of silver, blue, and lilac shades are the new trend! Bold colors such as these in one mane take time and patience, but it’s worth it! Keeping the top area darker enables a more natural grow-out.
#15: Pink and Blue-Purple Galaxy Colors
Amp up your hair with pink, purple, and blue streaks. Now, this is what pastel dreams are made of! Mixed magenta, teal, and lavender colors create that rainbow-inspired look. Hair colors like this would look great with braids to show a unique and vivid dimension.
#16: Electric Blue and Bright Purple
Brighter blue-purple hairstyles are in! Electric blue-indigo hues look much edgier on an ear-length short cut with bangs.
#17: Purple and Blue Ombre
This purple and blue gradient is mystifying and just so magnetizing! The shine and the big ombre curls complete the wow factor of this style.
#18: Green, Purple and Blue Mermaid Hair
Surprisingly, the green adds a nice earthy color to the vibrant blue hues. What a brilliant way to flavor platinum hair!
#19: Peekaboo Blue and Purple Hair Underneath
Shake up your hair with hidden streaks of violet and blue. These peekaboo highlights work well on blonde hair.
#20: Pastel Blue and Silver Purple
This bold lavender look was created with Pulp Riot’s semis by salon owner and stylist Lindsay Medrano of Baton Rouge, LA.
“The bottom area is lighter, creating a subtle gradient effect,” says Medrano. “I love how this will fade back to blonde over a few months.”
This pastel blue and lavender are for women with very light blonde hair who don’t mind a high-maintenance color and refresh often.
#21: Half Purple and Blue Hair
This half purple and blue hair were created by hairstylist Kimberly Ibbotson of Los Angeles, CA.
Ibbotson wants you to understand the maintenance. She says, “Creative colors like neon blues or purples are more on the high-maintenance side and require attention every 6-8 weeks.”
This bright blue and purple color will evolve and fade in that period. Still, there are products you can use at home to maintain maximum vibrancy – custom-colored conditioner would be a perfect example,” she adds.
#22: Blue, Plum, and Vibrant Purple
Blue, plum, and vibrant purple are classy, fun hues worth trying. These vivid colors are unnatural, as if you’re in a fantasy world!
With such hues, stylists are advising embracing the fade. Proper maintenance and salon visits are the keys to a gorgeous fade-out effect. The combo of these shades upgrades a style while staying true to colors that are fun to flaunt.
#23: Light Blue, Pink, and Purple Highlights
The fusion of light blue, pink, and purple highlights creates a unicorn-inspired color.
Hairstylist Addie Sowell of Cullman, AL, shares a few tips about this color. “Find a stylist that specializes in this type of service. It’s very intensive and requires someone patient. If you don’t mind the maintenance, then absolutely go for it,” Sowell states.
#24: Magenta, Royal Blue, and Light Blue Hair
This magenta, royal blue, and light blue hair idea have loud colors and a bold and edgy finish. The fusion of beautiful indigo and vivid blue shades creates a unique dimension. It’ll be easy to style this beauty if painted on long tresses.
Hairstylist Stephanie Lawrence of Londonderry, NH, created this blended style. “You take small sections and melt multiple colors on each to get a seamless blend of colors,” she notes.
#25: Blue and Purple Dip Dye
Hairstylist Jelena of Laguna Hills, CA, created this blue and purple dip dye.
She explains, “I’d describe the look as galaxy hair – the vibrant blue and rich purple tones remind me of some of the beautiful images taken from space. I completed the look with a long layered cut and soft mermaid waves.”
#26: Electric Blue and Dark Purple
Opt for electric blue with dark purple fantasy colors.
The colors blend well together and won’t mix and look bad when you wash them. And I love how you can see the length and the blues from the root to the ends of the hair.
Use Argan, coconut, or Moroccan oil to keep it hydrated after lightning. Also, hydrating hair masks once every 2 weeks is recommended. This color fits any personality, especially if you are fun and are not scared to try different things.
#27: Lavender Light Purple with Blue
Radiance of lavender light purple with blue looks marvelous and fun to pull off! This is a beautiful deep lavender/periwinkle shade with a lighter tone at the ends. The darker shade at the roots makes the edges pop even brighter.
Achieving this masterpiece means getting a heavy balayage or babylights. Cool water helps the color stay in a little longer when it comes to upkeep. But it’s still crucial to see a professional every 4 to 6 weeks to keep the beauty of this blue-purple hair.
#28: Metallic Purple and Pastel Purple
This purple hair color moves into the wild side from a sun-kissed balayage to a metallic unicorn.
Created by hairstylist, Kimberly Marie says, “I love using these deeper violet colors because the hair doesn’t need to be lifted to a bright blonde before applying the color.”
If you are considering this pastel purple, remember the maintenance and proper at-home care. Colors like this are considered high-maintenance and can take several hours to achieve, depending on your current color history.
Unicorn hair is accepted more now than ever, giving women a chance to express themselves and have fun with their looks!
#29: Denim Blue & Dark Blue
The dark and light colors of blue were created by hairstylist Albee Chan of Singapore.
“For the ombre/balayage technique, it’s recommended to do some styling like a wave or curl to increase the movement and dynamics of the hair,” says Chan.
She also wants you to understand that the hair needs to be bleached 1-2 rounds to achieve the color (especially Asian hair). Chan adds, “The damage caused by bleaching will make the hair drier or even cause breakage.”
#30: Blue, Green, and Purple Balayage
This blue, green, and purple balayage was created by hair color specialist Kristinine Gibb of Canada.
“I loved creating these hues of green with blue-purple hair art. I chose to use yellow to give to create depth in key areas. These direct dyes allow for so much creativity,” she explains.
She adds, “In my experience, the young tend to like the very loud bright colors, whereas middle-aged women prefer deeper tones that are still very fun colors. For mature women, I find they tend to choose pastels, which is fantastic because they don’t typically last for very long, making it uncommitted fun.”
#31: Red, Purple, and Blue Hair
This red, purple, and blue hair was created by stylist Lucas Chew of Singapore.
“I always like to do advanced multi-color for my girls, which includes this kind of red-purple-blue galaxy hair color! It always gives women with dark hair a new look,” says Chew.
#32: Purple Hair with Blue Highlights
Blue and purple hair ideas like this are very bold colors. Hairstylist Brianna Lynn of Lancaster, WI, says, “The curls show off the color variation a little better, but it can also be worn straight.”
She continues, “Chunky blues thrown into the beautiful purple tone show a little more dimension. I love how the colors complement each other and create an electrifying look. The blue highlights are just enough to create a color mesh.”
#33: Dark Purple and Bright Blue with Dark Roots
Go for a custom-designed metallic blue-purple hair color.
When wearing blue and purple highlights, you should understand the importance of home hair care products and make time for color maintenance.
This look requires sulfate-free and paraben-free color-safe shampoo and conditioners to ensure the richness of the color remains as long as possible. Vivid colors such as these purple and blue hair ideas tend to wash out faster than permanent colors resulting in more frequent salon visits to keep it freshened up.
#34: Lilac and Silver Blue
This purple and silver hair color is the dark depth of the galaxy transition with the stars and the purple cosmic rays going throughout. It was created by balayage specialist and stylist Michael Bargallo of Chesapeake, VA.
“Creative coloring needs to be maintained every 6-8 weeks to keep the color refreshed,” says Bargallo. “You also have to consider the hair type and the condition of the hair! Always ask for a 2-year history of the hair to see if the hair can achieve the color the client wants.”
#35: Pinkish Purple and Blue Hair Color
Pinkish purple, and blue hair color is a popular color palette in fashion hair colors. As the colors fade, they evolve in geoidal hue, making it a fun choice of hair color. For the best results, routined maintenance visits 4 weeks apart for root and color refreshes are suggested.
