Do only like highlights.

Purple on dark/black hair looks pretty cool, well to me. I have black hair and I have dyed my hair with blue highlights and then one year with red. I agree with the other post by placing only highlights and not your whole head. Once reason I think it will look better. Second, when you have to lift your original color out of your hair before to add the purple; it is really damaging. Then the color does not stay as brilliant when your first initially dye it so after about two weeks you have to reapply the purple. This is a tedious process. (Don't for get to deep condiiton after...) I would not recommend doing it, but, you will not know till you try.

do you mean a purple tint or purple. 'cos you will have to bleach your hair to dye it purple but purple/black is an amazing colour because iit looks flat colour but as soon as light hits it shows up really nicely purple. i wouldnt suggest bleaching your hair as its never really a good idea rofl. (i know, says me with the bleach blonde hair rofl)..

maybe do a chunk of your hair black/purple first, to see how you like it, before dying the whole thing, sometimes colour comes out more vibrant or less on different types of hair.

try using Live XXL dye also, so you get the best colour :)

its made by shwarqschof (spelling is shocking i know), and gives a really good covorage :) xxxxx

i think it would be cool to do just the front bangs (or half of them and a bit of the long hair on one side) purple and maybe some of the under side in back.

get it maybe even toward the bottom in back cut in layers and do that lil duck tail thing have a few (FEW) long layers cut so you can see the purple under your hair

Since your black it would be best for you not to bleach your hair like one of the previous commenters mentioned. But in order to get the right color you are gonna have to go blonde. So your best bet to go blonde is to use an African American hair color like dark and lovely's luminous blonde.Then try using a white toner to get some of the yellow pigment out. Try an organic dye like manic panic or crazy colors.I suggest manic panic's ultraviolet for your hair. It complements black hair well.
