Kelly Osbourne let the world in on the secret behind her various purple celebrity hairstyles reported Reveal on Monday, which isn’t that much of a surprise. Kelly was most recently seen with a purple faux-hawk (above) at BeautyCon. Her buzzed sides are not wig-related, but, if you want to know where to find colorful wigs that look as real as Osbourne, read on for a few suggestions.
According to Reveal, Kelly Osbourne posted a photo on Instagram Saturday captioned by, “I do love a good wig!” The “Fashion Police” host, who recently launched a joint MAC makeup collection with mother Sharon, has been seen wearing almost every hairstyle imaginable over the past few years, all with her trademark lavender color. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out Kelly’s change in style has been helped with extensions and wigs, however the 29-year-old “Dancing with the Stars” alum’s social media photo confirms Osbourne has a vast assortment of purple hair pieces to assist with her ever-changing looks.
Out of the ordinary hair color has been the current beauty trend, thanks in part to Osbourne's flair for the extraordinary, with students receiving disciplinary action for not adhering to their school’s code of conduct regimen. Ozzy and Sharon’s daughter has the right idea for changing up one’s hair color/hairstyle without the use of dye or a visit to the salon. Because, as readers of this column are fully aware, the Long Island Hair Care Examiner never promotes coloring at home, unless it entails a box of crayons, a child and a coloring book.
So what are the best and most affordable options to emulate Kelly Osbourne’s purple hair or any other favorite celebrity hairstyle? Sally Beauty Supply sells colorful clip-in hair extensions for just a pop of color without the work. But don’t purchase the Manic Panic color advertised with it. This particular brand looks like magic marker when applied, not the shiny color you’d receive if a professional dyed it.
Other options are costume wigs made of synthetic hair. They are affordable, but cannot be dyed. Human hair wigs are expensive and can be colored, however, this should NOT be done at home or with a box. It is a waste of money to purchase human hair only to ruin it with dye. Always visit a licensed professional. Google or call your local salon to see if they are proficient in coloring human hair wigs. If dying a wig is your option for purple hair like Kelly Osbourne or another vibrant color, choose a blonde one so it doesn’t have to be stripped. If you decide to have your hair colored in the current trend and are still registered in school, check with school policy first.
