Ultra Violet is Pantone's color of the year 2018 - and looks ultra stylish on your hair!

The Pantone Color of the Year 2018 is called Ultra Violet. A high-impact color, which looks ultra stylish on your head, too. We reveal how to achieve this color and which cuts to try it with.

Every year, the Pantone Color Institute announces the color of the year. For 2017 it selected "Greenery", a fresh shade of green. It was a great fashion color, but not quite as suitable as a hair dye. But now we have Pantone's color of the year 2018: "Ultra Violet". It's a shade of purple that isn't too brash and works perfectly for hair! It's a hue that adds a touch of extravagance to change up your hair game. Find out here whether the trendy shade is right for you and your cut.

Here's what makes trend shade "Ultra Violet" ultra cool

If you don't want to fully dye your hair in Ultra Violet, you can get Ombré tips.

The dark, radiant shade of purple looks classy and stylish at the same time. It's not just a colorful choice for young, adventurous girls, but can also be worn by more mature women. It can be dyed all over, or only on part of a hairstyle - for instance Ombré style.
In general, keep in mind: The darker your initial hair color, the less intense the color result. Blond or dark blond hair, however, is relatively easy to dye at home.

Tip: For long lasting shine and radiant color, use hair products specifically formulated for dyed hair. In addition, use a nourishing mask once a week.

"Ultra Violet" suits these women and goes well with these cuts

Basically, anyone who wants a change of color can wear Ultra Violet hair. You can vary the intensity of the shade according to your personal preference. Purple also works with pretty much any cut.
The Pantone trend color looks best on short haircuts like a Pixie Cut when it is evenly dyed a strong, saturated shade of purple.
For long hair, a color gradient looks edgy.
