Summer is the season for a little bit of experimentation with your beauty routine. From wearing a bright eyeliner to adding a touch of glitter to your favourite makeup looks, summer is the perfect time to try out a look you have always loved.
This summer, we're in love with the lilac hair trend. From celebrities to beauty influencers, we've seen so many lilac locks grace our Instagram feed and we want to share with you our favourite lilac hair products that will help you achieve this on-trend look.
How to get lilac hair?
If you want to transform your locks and either add a touch of violet or go completely lilac with your hair, it is important to have a light base. Both semi-permanent and permanent brightly coloured hair dyes don't really show on darker hair but if you're blonde to light brown, they will work perfectly on you.
If you're brunette or have red or black hair, you may want to get an in-salon treatment to lighten your locks before using a lilac hair dye.
We have an amazing array of lilac hair products on lookfantastic so we wanted to share with you our edit of the best to help you master this must-have trend.
