I have dark brown hair, a little bit past my shoulders and I wanna get some purple put in it, just some streaks, not all over. I don't know whether I should get it light or dark. I don't want it to look too crazy. But I need some opinions on it.
you can get your hair highlited and the purple dye applied to it directly without bleaching it first- it will give all of your hair a purplish tint without being in-your-face, but the highlighted strands will be a stronger, more "defined" purple color.
that's how I've had mine : P it's a nice twist to otherwise "boring" solid colored hair, but subtle enough to get yelled at or stared at (too hard, lol). it will look kinda like this, but purple instead of fuchsia, link
