Since mauve hair color is so customizable, the whimsical hue can be difficult to define. To achieve a mauve hair color, your colorist will combine notes of purple and pink to create a colorful and dimensional look that can be cool or warm-toned. According to Epstein, mauve is the perfect balance between subtle and fashion hair colors.
It’s great for anyone who is nervous about doing vivid colors and it’s a great step into that world...I love it because it’s such a wide variation of tones and it’s so subtly beautiful.
All hair colors work best when they’re tailored to complement your skin tone, so consult with your stylist before committing if you’re unsure what mauve look is best for you.
Depending on the mauve hair color you desire, your colorist might need to use bleach to lift your current color before applying the mauve shade. Bleach will always cause damage, but your colorist will work to improve the look and feel of your strands before you leave the salon.
Since fantasy shades are more prone to fading, Epstein shares a few tips for extending the life of your color.
Color maintenance rule number one: Stock up on salon-quality products to care for your new hue at home.
“I would treat mauve hair color the same as any vivid color, so I would recommend using Matrix Total Results Keep Me Vivid line including the shampoo, Lamination Spray, and conditioner” Epstein says. “I also recommend washing hair under cold water and keeping washing to a minimum of two to three times a week.”
If your color-treated strands are parched, add a weekly hair mask into your routine. We love the Biolage Re-Hydrate Clay Mask. With shea butter and Moroccan lava clay, it conditions and moisturizes dry, dull hair to seal in nourishment.
