Remember when hair dyes disappeared off store shelves last year and home-dyed heads in daring hues of bright reds, oranges, and pinks became a common appearance on our Instagram feeds and in our Zoom meetings? Thankfully, all that is now in the past, and even the last remaining hints of saturated hues have been washed off. Well, new year, new hair color trend. A calm, soothing hue is now the talk of the hair world – lavender hair.
The queen of hair color experiments, Lady Gaga, has been sporting lavender hair for a while now. Last month, Chrissy Teigen joined the lavender hair club as she sported a wig dyed in the soft purple shade. While Gaga can be credited as the pioneer of the trend for the season, it is, however, pop queen Jennifer Lopez‘s celestial ombré purple dye job that we believe has set the lavender hair ball rolling.

For her music video, ‘In the Morning,’ JLo transformed herself into what her favorite hair magician has dubbed “unicorn Barbie.” In a picture shared on Instagram by celebrity hairstylist Chris Appleton, Lopez looks absolutely phenomenal as she sports a bold ombré hairstyle with blends of silver, powder pink, and blue hues with lavender being the dominating tint.
Now that there is a new pastel shade dominating the hair world, the question remains: will the lavender hair trend mark the end of the rose gold hair trend’s lengthy reign?
