- A natural blonde, PrettyShinySparkly typically has her stylist put both highlights and lowlights in her hair, but due to time constraints, she pulled a DIY, using L'Oréal's Superior Preference in Glistening Magnolia ($15) in hopes of attaining a beachy-white blond. When the color turned out a little bit too buttery-yellow, she applied Wella's Color Charm Toner in #T18 ($5), a subtle lavender, to counteract any unwanted golden-toned pigments. "After rinsing out the toner, shampooing, and deep conditioning, I was shocked and flabbergasted to find that I had accidentally created the most perfect, subtle, barely-there version of the lavender highlights I was so coveting," she said.
- Then, a few weeks later, as the streaks faded into a silver-toned lavender hue, she decided to keep the pastel theme going, applying Manic Panic's Cotton Candy ($7.50) and Mystic Heather ($9). The outcome? Fun and funky pink and purple semipermanent highlights that are perfect for Summer.
Leave it to Lady Gaga to do the unexpected. While in London, the normally blond singer stepped out with a whole head of purple hair, accessorized with a purple-toned lipstick and a matching teacup and saucer. Does it make you grin or... grimace? (Heh.) Since you liked my pretty in pink slideshow so much, I thought I'd pay tribute to Gaga's new hue. Check out all of these purple people now.
