How to Get Periwinkle Hair in 5 Easy Steps

It's pastel hair season, and we're putting playful coral, bubble gum pink, and icy blue back on the shelf to let Periwinkle hair have its movement. Appropriately named 2022's "color of the year," Periwinkle serves fairytale realness with its extra flattering in-between shade that forms a stunning pastel purple hue.

So if you're looking for a fantasy color change with serious POP, shake up your shade by combining our Pastel Blue & Vibrant Purple Coloring Conditioners to create this gorgeous Periwinkle hair from home.

Pre Color Prep:

Before starting, prep your area for a mess-free, stain-proof experience. Here's what you'll need:
– Gloves, mixing bowl, brush (try our Hair Color Starter Kit)
– Towel (peep our oVertone Towels)
– Cape or old t-shirt
– Freshly washed hair
– Hair ties // clips // bobby pins

Pastel Blue Coloring Conditioner is perfect for creating a subtle cool-toned hue with blue undertones rendering an icy finish on a range of starting shades.

Vibrant Purple Coloring Conditioner packs a powerful punch with a gorgeous marbled combination of warm and cool tones, making it pop on a range of starting colors.

Start with our Sample Size Coloring Conditioners and try a quick strand test to see how the color takes to your hair.


Mix our Pastel Blue & Vibrant Purple Coloring Conditioners to make a dramy Periwinkle dye. You can combine different ratios of blue and purple depending on how you want your Peri— add more blue for a cool, mintier shade and purple to get that fairy lilac look.


Separate your hair into sections for easy application. Applying color from the bottom layers of hair up to the top is recommended, but you can start anywhere as long as you saturate the strands to get full coverage.


Wearing the gloves provided, apply color to small sections of hair, starting at the roots and working your way to the ends. Saturate strands with your dreamy Periwinkle mix and let it sit for 10-15 minutes. That's enough time to make tea, have a snack, scroll the gram, and cuddle your cat — but no face cuddles. Unless... *dreams of owning a Periwinkle cat*


Rinse hair with your preferred temp — year, you heard right, it doesn't have to be cold to get that dreamy Peri shade you desire!


Simply dry and style as usual. Voila! And just like that, you can have a fantasy look that's light, timeless, and makes a bold statement.

The best part is that your hair will be silky smooth from the hair-healthy ingredients that used to make our Coloring Conditioners, so it's not just the Peri pastel highlights that make your hair look rich and voluminous. Don't wait around for prince charming. Let your imagination wander and grab everything you need to create this mystical, "happily ever after" look!

Why We Made oVertone

Coloring Conditioners were created out of a desire for change. We were sick of the fading, constant damage, and an eye-popping price tag that came with having great hair color. So we created the product we wanted to use: a hair-healthy alternative to dye that delivers and maintains your shade on your terms.
