Is Purple Hair the New Blonde???

Blonde, brunette and redhead are no longer your only hair color options. Purple - more specifically lavender - seems to be taking over the celebrity universe. And you know what? I kind of love it. Depending on the shade (and the person) lavender hair can look sexy and smart.

While browsing through the web and pinterest, there are seemingly thousands of online tutorials on how to achieve purple hair at home. Why is it all the rage? See below for some of my favorite looks and judge for yourself!

Originally saying she "wasn't a fan" of the purple hair trend, LC posted this photo to her instagram showing off her purple locks! I believe this is just for a magazine spread, but I still dig it.

In my mind, I can't picture Kelly Osbourne with any other hair color than this! This lavender grey shade has been her go to color for a while now. When it works, it works!

A good pal of Kelly Osbourne, the always stylish Nicole Richie also went the lavender route. After seeing what she looked like with purple hair using an online application, Richie actually dyed it for real. Love!

Cristina has been experimenting with different hair colors for YEARS
It was only a matter of time before she tried purple and blonde!

Katy Perry is no stranger to funky hair color.
After having almost every hair color under the sun - including this black and purple mix, she now wants her hair to be "slime green." Yikes, good luck with that. She also had this really beautiful dark lavender color, which i'm kind of in love with. She somehow makes it look sophisticated and not cheap.

Ireland Baldwin, daughter to actor Alec Baldwin, is an up and coming model.
Who just dyed her hair purple. I think it looks prettier when your makeup is kept simple!

What do you guys think? Would you ever go this bold? Would love to hear your thoughts!
