Brunettes around the world have been dip dyeing their hair non-stop since the ombre craze swept the globe, but for the adventurous of heart, purple might just be the next evolution.

For those not in the know, ombre hair is a color fashion trend that had as rapid of a fall as it had a rise.  It's effect is created by having a base color at the root of the hair that fades to a lighter color at the tips, sometimes even going all the way to blonde.  Usually this is done by dip-dyeing hair.

It's a lovely color style that has been taken up by hair enthusiasts, stylists, and even celebrities in droves.

But the trend has been fading as of recent, but just because the brunette-to-blonde gradient is going away doesn't mean we need to throw away the dip-dyeing technique entirely.

So, for the adventurous spirits amongst us, we decided to bring you some stunning photos of women who dip-dyed their hair purple with absolutely beautiful results.
