Lauren Conrad’s new purple hair may not be permanabet, but the former Hills star will have to eat her words after dissing purple hair in th epast. Lauren recently told Us Magazine, “I’m not a big fan of purple as a color! It looks great on them but not me,” when referring to Kelly Osbourne and Nicole Richie’e new purple hair. Hmmm someone is going to have to much on those words after she posted a new photo on her website debuting purple hair or is this an April Fools joke? Regardless it looks pretty!

As I’ve mentioned before, I keep temporary pink hair dye in my shower for whenever I’m in the mood for a fun beauty look. Sometimes on a Friday I’ll work some pink dye into my mane and enjoy pink-tipped tresses until Monday when I wash my hair again. It’s a fun off-duty look for the weekend.

But this time, I decided to take the plunge and try a semi-permanent color. This one stays in for 6 to 8 weeks before washing out. I really didn’t think that purple was my color, but after seeing several others wear it recently, I decided to give it a try. I also tested out the dye on a small section of hair underneath, before coloring my whole mane—which I always recommend. It just goes to show that you should never knock a trend until you try it…

What do you think of my purple locks? Would you ever dye your hair a pastel shade?

It was a joke her stylist confirmed. “To get this exact shade of purple, we went out and gathered rare amethyst stones. Next, we ground them up by hand until they turned into a fine powder. Then we added 2 pinches of grape koolaid. Mix that in a bowl with 2 oz. of mermaid tears. Apply all over and let it sit for 16 hours. Lather, rinse, repeat. #aprilfoolsyall#shedoesntevenlikepurple.”
