If you have decided to dye your hair plum then you are in luck. Unlike most colors in the spectrum, there is no shortage of shades to choose from. Moreover, each of them is more delicious and aesthetic than the other. Nevertheless, a cornucopia of colors could prove both a curse and a blessing. In other words, how do you choose the best plum hair color for you? Do not worry! We have put together a list of the best 45 shades. Scroll down and pick the one that suits you best.
1. shades of brunette
Let’s start with a plum hair color that has been applied to brunettes. In other words, the base of this color is a good, old-fashioned brunette, while the top has stripes of classic, rich and powdery plum. Crap!
2. Plum hair color with rose gold
Rose gold is still strong as the absolute “It” color of the last few seasons. Everything must be in rose gold, and you know it. But have you ever thought of combining plum with rose gold? This would work wonderfully as an autumn hair color.
3. Black plum balayage
Yes, you can even make balayage with a nice plum hair color. Start with a natural dark hair color, like a deep brunette or a rich dark chestnut, and continue with a lighter shade of shadow that opens and softens the whole situation.
4. Red violet
Combing plum hair color with red is always a great idea. You can see that it occurs organically in nature, mostly in flowers and fruits, so why not replant with your own hair? The resulting color is absolutely stunning.
5. The eggplant
One of the most popular plum hair colors ever is eggplant. In fact, it has been used on such a grand scale that it has become a classic in the plum blossom family. It is dark and elegant, with only a hint of shine.
6. Dark Plum to Purple Ombre
If you were thinking of getting a purple ombre, you would certainly go in the right direction. This goes from a dark plum to a casual purple on the surface, with a few dark magnolia stripes thrown in just for fun.
7. The black and purple mane
Another amazing combination that you can try is that between dark brunette and dark purple. Both shades have a deep base, which means they will complement each other wonderfully.
8. Eggplant Plum hair color
Here is an interesting fact. Although eggplant actually means eggplant, the plum hair shade is not the same. In other words, we have one hair color for eggplant and another for eggplant. So far the plum tree extends.
9. Blackberry Plum Hair
This particular shade looks as delicious as it sounds. The blackberry theme gives the darker plum a sweet effect that is almost pink in some places, depending on how the light hits it. We recommend you invest in some shine spray.
10. The Kylie Jenner
The plum hair color is so beloved that even some celebrities have fallen prey to its temptation. Supermodel and reality TV show Kylie Jenner is just one of them. Here she is with a chopped off, medium haircut, in a nice, dusty plum shade.
11. Chocolate cherry
Do you know what you get when you combine dark chocolate with dark cherry? A kind of plum hair color. It is very dark and woody, but also natural and organic, like the plums that are usually found in nature and not in an orchard.
12. The angled red praise
A praise is otherwise known as a long bob. This one is special because it is also angled on one side. But what we love most is its plum color, blended with some fire red, which definitely gives it an extra kick.
13. The wavy bob
Another type of praise or Long Bob is the wavy one. All you have to do here is break out your old curling iron and create a few of those loose waves. Finish with a touch of hairspray to keep everything in place and you’re good to go.
14. raspberries and orchids
This particular plum hair color is a combination of the shades we call raspberry and orchid. They’ve teamed up to create this wonderful pink shade, which is neither purple nor red, but the almost ripe plum.
15. Purple and magenta
If you can not decide which of these beautiful shades you want to adopt, you can always go for two. This is a combination of magenta and violet with clearly visible edges.
16. Lavender Plum hair color
Is there anything nicer or more feminine than lavender? If you agree, why do not you wear it in your hair as well? You could go for the simple solution of a lavender crown, or you could go for the more permanent lavender hair color.
17. The reverse bob
Another type of bob that you can use to perfectly present your amazing plum hair color is the inverted bob. Its long and choppy sides will help to lengthen your facial features and create the illusion that they are much slimmer than they seem to be.
18th wedding day purple hair color
Here’s a great idea for your wedding day. This is a dark and matte purple, yet it is sweet and juicy. The romantic part is brought here by the big, unknowingly laced statement hair jewelry.
19. Light grape and cream
This is a fantastic piece of Ombre. It starts with a light grape on top. Far from being wine in color, this is actually sweet grape. It falls in grape jelly along with thick and soft cream to the ends.
20. Merlot Balayage
As we talked about grapes, let’s take a look at how Merlot looks like plum hair color. This is a dark purple base hair with a Merlot color melt, all wrapped under the same name we got used to – Balayage.
21. Curly plum hair color
Like many other non-traditional hair colors, plum is also good for curling. But be careful that you do not go over the top. This hue is a lot for yourself without having to add the fullness of a full curly head.
22. Concord Plum hair color
This hue is called Eintracht and we must confess that he is one of our favorites. Just like with children, we should not vote, but we have and that one simply has won our hearts. Look at this beautiful plum color and how she produces her eyes!
23. Violet plum hair color
Here is a shadow that is strongly inspired by nature, namely the flower of the same name. It’s simple and sweet and it goes well with a bunch of mermaids or beach waves. All you need is a sea salt spray.
24. Boysenberry Everyone?
As a fruit, boysenberries are a wonderful cross between loganberries, raspberries, blackberries and blackberries. And that is exactly what this hair color looks like. A mix of a basket full of goodies, usually found deep in the forest.
25. Magenta Plum hair color
If your plan is to go all hipsters, magenta is definitely your color. It is undoubtedly crazy and not standard enough to survive as a hipster. In addition, you can add a touch of neon, as well as any statement jewelry that you like.
26. Plum Hair and black bows
A darker color of plum hair color can always be sweetened with a simple bow. Think Alice in Wonderland or a Disney princess. But not to look like a 12-year-old girl, you can always opt for a more mature and elegant black bow.
27. The Katy Perry
Pop singer Katy Perry is another celebrity who put on the plum hair color. We can not really say that we are surprised, as she has probably tried every single color known to man and beast. At least in her videos she did it.
28. Mardi Gras Plum hair color
This particular shade is called Mardi Gras and you can easily see why. It is young, fresh, hip and ready to party. All you have to do after receiving it is to make sure you know how to style it properly.
29. Antique Fuchsia
If Mardi Gras was not exactly your cup … ok, we say tea, why do not you try Antique Fuchsia? It has a vintage sheen, as if it was discovered somewhere under a granite slab for 2000 years when it was worn by the queens of the ancient world. And you know that purple is the color of kingship.
30. Light amethyst
Another color that deserves your attention is a light amethyst. At first glance, it may be a washed-out lavender, but you’re wrong. Amethyst is much colder and stony in appearance, and it has some traces of indigo that make it look so spectrally.
31. Fandango Plum hair color
Here’s a cool fact. The word fandango means a Spanish courtship dance to a lively song played by a guitar. They usually have a tambourine or castanets. Where do you recognize it? “Bohemian Rhapsody”, of course. You sing it every time and you do not even know it.
32. Marsala Plum hair color
We have seen many plum colors and are not finished yet. Still, we have to admit that Marsala is probably the hottest and humblest of them all. Combine it with make-up in the right color and we do not know how a man can resist you.
33. Dark mallow
Are you a rebel? Then this is the hair color for you. You’d think it’s eggplant first. In fact, it’s a dusty and powdery dark mauve with a few beige stripes here and there. They are not meant to be seen by themselves. Just to bring a little light into the whole.
34. Raisin Plum hair color
This is the shadow you should wear in winter, if ever there was one. And here is a professional tip. If you want to add more depth or volume to your hair, you can always opt for extensions. Find something in your color or color in raisin plum to combine.
35. Mulberry Plum hair color
Mulberries come in different colors when you see them in their trees. However, we love the pinks and chose them as inspiration for this plum shade. The color is exactly like the fruit. Sweet, juicy and even a bit bitter, reminiscent of a pink grapefruit.

36. Dark iris
The dark or black iris is a rare flower that typically grows in China and Myanmar. But why do we love the so-called Nightshade so much? Because it’s an amazing inspiration for our hair color. It has its own merits to be one of the most beautiful colors in the plum palette and we love it!
37. Tyrian purple
This color is also called Phoenician purple. But do you want to know a funny fact? The pigment is produced by some marine snails called Murex. Since it was so difficult to preserve, it was much appreciated in antiquity. Do not worry, they now have synthetic replacements to keep snails out of the reach of your hair.
38. Wine Plum hair color
If you carry wine in your hair, you would really show your devotion to this king of drinks. Obviously, just as there are several types of wines, there are different hair colors that are similar to them. However, if you want to keep things simple, you can always go for the basic burgundies.
39. The layered bob
Stylists teach us that if we have two different hair colors, it’s a layered hairstyle so we can show them both. This asymmetrical bob is a hairstyle that shows both the brunette and the purple plum.
40. The Selena Gomez
Even though she never went crazy with her choice, Selena chose a plum hair color. We love how her make-up fits this story too, with a contoured pink eye and small pink lips.
41. Space bun
One of the hairstyle trends that has really taken hold over the last few seasons is one that we’ve come back to since the 90s. Of course we’re talking about Space Buns. They are not only whimsical and funny, they also look delicious in plums.
42. Psychedelic plum hair color
A revival of our old fashion and styling habits can go further than in the 90s. Think of the psychedelic era, its colors and how you can combine it with today’s trend. Choose a winged eyeliner from the ’40s and’ 50s and a few face piercings from the 2000s and you’re done.
43. Heliotrope plum hair color
This purple shade gets its name from the heliotrope flower. It is a very light shade, which is also mixed with some purple above. This clever blend gives the otherwise perfect pastel hair color a certain texture and depth.
44th opera mauve
Beautifully called the Opera Mauve, this Pantone color is considered one of the most magical mauves in the world. It is totally dramatic and theatrical, which is why it probably got the name ‘opera’ mauve.
45. Red and purple
A hair color that looks purple, which actually looks red when viewed in sunlight? Yes, please! Where do we sign? The glossing effect is another thing we can admire and we can not stop!
