Ultraviolet: Daring Purple Hairstyles

Always wanted to dye your hair a vivacious lavender shade but never had the guts to actually do it? With the new color negative LomoChrome Purple film, you can rock positively purple locks with the emulsion's infrared-like coloring. Check out this vivid gallery of pretty violet tresses!

Since I was born with generic dark hair, I’d always wanted to change my hair color to a wild one. Because of the ridiculous “the-world-will-end-in-2012” hoaxes, I decided to finally do it last year. When it came to color, I went with the most radical shade: red. I bleached my hair blonde then dyed it red. Then I dip-dyed it again, then cut it, and went back to black when I was done with my “YOLO”-ing.

It was a pretty fun experience that I’m glad to tick off my bucket list. I played around with different ways to style it, had a ball documenting it in film, and often thought of the concept of my appearance and societal acceptance, vanity and homogeneity (haha really). When I saw celebs like Katy Perry and Lady GaGa rocking purple hair, I thought, darn, I should’ve picked purple instead since it looks way cooler.

But between the bleaching and dyeing, coloring your hair really does a lot of damage to it so I don’t think I would actually do it all over again. After seeing some infrared Aerochrome Lomographs, I noticed that the color shifts sometimes turns your hair purple…

So I say spare your precious tresses the damage and fake it til you make it with the new LomoChrome Purple – A Color Negative Film That Yields Infrared Results!
