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 compiled a list of the best 50 plum colors. Scroll down and choose the ones you like best.
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. Yum!
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.
Yes, you can even make balayage with a beautiful 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 plum that will open and soften the whole situation.
The combination of 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. Eggplant Plum Hair
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’re thinking about getting a purple ombre, you’ve certainly been heading in the right direction. This one goes from a dark plum to a casual purple on the surface with some dark magnolia strands thrown in just for fun.
7. Black and Purple Hairstyles
Another amazing combination you can try is that between dark brunette and dark purple. Both shades have a deep base, which means they complement each other wonderfully.
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. That’s how far the plum tree goes.
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.

Here is an amazing 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, tautly strapped statement piece of hair jewelry.

26. Plum Hair and Black Bows

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 that.

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 you get 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 the royal house.
Another color that is worthy of your attention is lighter 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. They sing it every time and you did 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 really know how a man can resist you.
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.
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 some in your color or color them in raisin plum
