Nicole Richie on Purple Hair: It Feels No Different Than When I Was Blonde

Instagram

Thinking about making a hair change? It's not as drastic a feel as you think - or so says Nicole Richie. The 32-year-old star admitted that her new purple hue wasn't so much of a change from being blonde. 

"“Surprisingly, it feels like having blonde hair,” Richie told PEOPLE. “My colorist Danny Moon, when I talked to him about it, he said, ‘I’m telling you, you’re not going to feel that different. Having purple hair has the same hue as having blonde hair, and you’re not going to feel that different.’ And he was actually right.”

But will Richie be hanging on to the color till summer? “You know what — I didn’t even know I was going to have purple hair until two days before I had it so it’s hard for me to say if I’m going to have it for summer or not. But we’ll see.”
