Be on the lookout for 2021 trends by opting for plum hair color
The plum color is a shade both sensual and mysterious that seduces us with its many assets. Often found in nature, not only in the form of delicious fruits but also flowers of incomparable beauty, the flagship shade of the year is here to magnify our feminine look. Whether you have a strong personality to manifest or a romantic and dreamy soul, purple highlights will undoubtedly bring out your best qualities. Reading this, you are probably asking yourself the question: but is this trendy hair color really for me??

Plum coloring variants
Normally, like every trend, the results of plum coloring depend on our body type and especially on the association with the complexion and color of our eyes. The good news: Thanks to its versatile nature, the violet dye can boost a pale complexion or even harmonize perfectly with tanned skin. In addition, you have the possibility to choose from several partial or full coloring techniques which are intended to sublimate the particular features of the face. Thus, apart from the classic dyeing with a coloring product like that of L’Oréal Paris, you can also opt for balayage or purple ombré, tie and dye, ephemeral coloring in chalk, highlights or even colored extensions with clips.

Which coloring technique to choose?
Plum hair is a great variation for ladies with a dark or tanned complexion. Dark shades of purple will flatter the face while intensifying the look. On the other hand, it should be noted that if your natural hair is brown and too dark, it may be necessary to bleach your hair before coloring (otherwise the effect will not be clearly visible).
For fair-haired and fair-skinned coquettes, all-over coloring can create a contrast that is too pronounced. This is why, if you are tempted by purple undertones, you can think of softer alternatives like a pastel highlight coloring or a purple ombré..

Once the coloring is done, we move on to styling the hair. Obviously, the plum dye is enough to catch the eye, but it never hurts to add an even more enchanting touch, especially if it’s a special occasion. Among the hairstyle trends of 2021, we find the cut with bangs as well as the square cuts. Braids are always the go-to element for a romantic look, a bohemian chic look or a casual hairstyle. Hair accessories and jewelry are also welcome!
