Lovely in Lavender: Nicole Richie’s Candy-Colored Coif


Color us green with envy: Nicole Richie now has purple hair!

The multi-tasking mom shared a snap of her freshly dyed tresses via her Instagram account, pairing the hair with a pair of chic sunglasses. It marks a total turn for the designer who was spotted over the weekend, catching the Bangerz World Tour with hubby Joel Madden.

Though her dark blonde tresses have been her signature for years, with a bit of brunette to break things up, she isn’t afraid to shake things up every once in a while. Remember her snowy white strands from last year’s Met Ball?

She’s not the only one to have lavender locks; the hue has become almost a trademark for Fashion Police’s Kelly Osbourne. We hope the pair will meet up for a photo op before Richie switches her shade once again.

Update: Oh, no! It turns out this wasn't the shade switch we were all psyched about, as the Instagram was a well-done Photoshop work of an image featuring Richie's natural hair color.
