Getting colored by a professional stylist is always the best option. But here are some tips if you are going with a DIY purple ombre look:

1. Purple dye contains less pigment (they fade faster than other colors). So purple ombre hair is harder to maintain.

2. You can make your purple ombre last longer by staying out of the sun and washing it less.

3. Light purple tones and dark hair usually require harsh lifting or bleaching. So be careful!

4. You should always moisturize and hydrate your hair before you do any bleaching or dying.
