16 Purple Braided Summer Styles


Sixteen purple braided summer hairstyles!  Purple, we love purple! In our clothing, shoes, walls, furniture, everywhere!  And yes, especially on our HAIR!! We’re got purple fever!

If you prefer a lighter shade of purple hair, these lavender box braids may be just right for you. Less common than darker shades of purple, these braids are sure to make you stand out in the crowd.

Did you know that darker shades of purple tend to look more subtle and could be a good fit if you are more conservative about color. Lighter shades of purple tend to create a more dramatic, vibrant, and eye-popping look. When it comes to braided extensions, consider how the length and thickness of the braids will affect the weight. Thinner braids will weigh less individually, which could put less tension on your roots. On the other hand, thicker braids use larger sections of hair, which may be able to withstand more weight from the added hair.  Let’s take a look at the many different ways you can rock purple braids!


If  you like thicker braids, these purple box braids might be more your speed. The rich purple color really makes this style pop.

Make sure to take you time when doing your zig-zag designs.
