If you’ve been wanting to lighten your locks, spring offers a perfect opportunity to experiment with a variety of hues. After all, the upcoming warmer temperatures mean that shades of blond and a myriad of pastels can only be around the corner. This spring, lilac hair has made a splash, appearing all over social media and making waves with its soft colour. If you’re wondering how to rock lilac, try drawing your cues from Instagram and embracing lilac in all its glory. Here’s how to master this lustfully light shade of purple for the season ahead.
Turn to lilac babylights and soft waves: For an understated take on the trend, upgrade your locks with subtle and soft babylights in a barely there shade of lilac. Next, refresh your tresses with softly curled strands, in order to impart a sense of femininity and capture spring’s ever-popular trend of beach waves.

Stick to ombre lilac tresses and plenty of volume: If you have a naturally long mane, try transforming your hair with ombre lilac. The barely there, pastel shade of purple can easily elevate darker brunette locks, while the look of bouncy curls can transform your lacklustre locks from zero to hero.

Try a more saturated shade of lilac for a colourful effect: For those who are ready to jump into the trend full force, lilac in all its violet-hued beauty can truly capture the spirit of springtime. Mermaid inspired shades of bold lilac are a beautiful look for the gradually rising temperatures in the months ahead, especially if you plan to hit the music festival circuit.
