As someone with purple hair, I’m beyond excited to try this trend out, but it is totally possibly to achieve with natural colored hair.

A lot of makeup marvels have opted for wearing wigs instead of dyeing their hair a different color every week, which is an easy, temporary option for anyone who just wants to try this once for a party!
