Lime Crime: Brunettes Can Rock Purple Hair

The unicorn hair phenomenon gallops on this fall. More specifically, according to Lime Crime, the fashionable fad has reportedly moved on to its more “goth phase.” The Lime Crime brand recently announced that has just added four new shades to its popular Unicorn Hair Collection.

The first rollout of colors was notably bright but these four shades are reportedly “deliciously dramatic.” The new colors are said to be “way darker.” Specifically, the new colors are Charcoal (dusty gray), Chestnut (deep maroon), Sea Witch (an “evil” mermaid-tail green) and Squid (“spooky” purple). They are all “full-coverage” colors.

Company sources indicate that these color were specifically chosen for their intensity. Via social media, Lime Crime stated that these specific hair dyes were specially formulated for brunette and/or women with dark hair who wish to represent Team Unicorn. Interested parties can view the new shades on Lime Crime’s official company website.
