Dark Purple Hair - Psylocke Style!

Time for a ~glitzy~ hair post!! :D
(Don't worry there's a photo of Psylocke at the end..)

About 2 weeks ago I had the guts to drastically change my hair color! It's normal for me to go from one funky color to the next, but I usually keep most of it blonde. Well I was playing around with a wig and feeling inspired by this photo of Katy Perry one night..  so with the support of my Facebook friends (I took a poll and almost everyone said they liked it dark) I decided to go for it!


Katy Perry at the 2012 Billboard Awards .. I liked that she had pale skin and blue eyes, too!

Testing out my dark brown wig first..
If you follow me on Facebook/Instagram/etc then you've already seen the results but if not then hereeee weee gooooo......
First, I used Deep Purple by RAW from Hot Topic .. It took all three bottles to do my whole head.

I usually mix the color with a lot of conditioner so it will make the color lighter and brighter. But since I wanted to go dark I decided not to add conditioner this time.

See ya, blondie!

omg!

This was right after I washed the color out... I was surprised how DARK it really was! It was basically black with a slight purple tint.

The next day I took this pic and thought hmmm maybe I like this...

It just looks so dark inside! I was hoping for more of a bright purple.

But when I am outside in the sunshine it looks a little more vibrant :)

I have been washing it with hot water to get it to fade a little. I have a feeling I'll probably add another color to it (maybe teal?) .. But for now it's fun having darker hair. Especially for fall!

:+:+:+:+:

Also, thank you to the few that said I should do a Psylocke cosplay now! I am quite sure that will never happen (check out that bod!), but she is so pretty with purple hair!

  1. Whoa.. your hair is getting long! I like it! The purple is really pretty too! I think a lot of people would look weird with different color hair, but you always make it look so good. You manage to make it look like a natural hair color.

    1. Thanks! It grows really fast! That is one reason I color it so much since I get roots so quickly. I would feel odd going back to my natural color for sure!

  2. The hair looks great. Like the way it looks in the light. But don't completely rule out Psylocke, you did rock the dark Mary Marvel and Black Widow pretty well. It wouldn't anywhere near as absurd as a 5'8" 150 lbs guy trying to cosplay as Khal Drogo. If you do say no, you could always fall back on doing Katy Perry. You're a champion, and I wanna hear you ROOOOAAAAAAARRRRRR. I'm tired.

  3. You look so beautiful Anna. I think I like this more than your blond. I have not had dark hair for over 8 years, always so bright and colourful. You are so brave to go do dark. :)

  6. Love this hair! Very pretty. If you wanted to do purple-haired Psylocke but wanted a bit more coverage, you could go with her new Marvel NOW costume. Personally, I think the full body suit makes *way* more sense for a ninja. http://www.comicsblend.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/psylocke-new.jpg

  8. Oh wow, you hair looks amazing and it suits you really well!
    It can be really hard going dark after such a long time being light, everything just seems super black no matter what haha
    But seriously it looks great so don't worry too much :D

  9. Hi Anna, I really liked how the purple came out for you! You look super cute ^.^ I have a question, would you happen to know any good brand that makes either royal or midnight blue? Also, must I bleach my black hair before I can get it to be a noticeable dark blue? Please let me know, thank you!

  10. My hair is black would this work on my hair?

    1. No it will not :D You need a light canvas for bright colors to show up on. If you were to take a purple crayon and draw on a black piece of paper it wouldn't show up well would it? Hair is the exact same!
