20 Pretty Chocolate Mauve Hair Colors: Ideas to Inspire
Chocolate mauve hair colors are perfect for the upcoming season; the color is a complex arrangement of several hair colors that create an overall warm and beautiful look that is strong yet soft. This is a great look that is nearly under the radar in terms of appearance as it is not a natural color, but could easily be seen as professional.
Nuance is easy to appreciate and there is a lot of nuance involved in creating a great chocolate mauve hair color treatment. Not only is this prismatic color theme beautiful, bit it also lasts months as it is designed to allow for the roots to grow in dark. There are a lot of different ways to do mauve as the color treatment is created, so here are 20 pretty chocolate mauve hair color ideas for you to consider.
1. Prismatic Chocolate Mauve Hair
The pink is clearly more towards the front transitioning to lavender in the back, but all of it looks great up against the brown roots and lightly spiraled into a bouncy bob.
2. Chocolate Chunky Mauve
The chocolate mauve balayage treatment here was done with more obvious segments of pink, purple and caramel over the brown. The color effect is cool and rich like a chilled dessert.
3. Chocolate and Rose Balayage
This chocolate mauve hair color is very natural looking but will accentuate every movement of the hair. The pink seems to be concentrated very well as highlights, but does not stand out too much.
4. Chocolate and Strawberry Milk Mauve
The soft chocolate mauve color reminds me of mixing chocolate milk with strawberry milk. It is very fresh and light and nearly natural in appearance and prismatic in how it catches the light.
5. Perfect Dark Chocolate Mauve
This is the ideal dark chocolate mauve. The colors are blended into each other so beautifully that it seems very natural. This is the blueprint for mauve hair that looks long, gorgeous and soft with amazing depth; it’s a gorgeous look.
6. Lavender Tipped Mauve
The dark roots allow the lighter portions to really stand out and shine without being boring or the lighter brown, pink or lavender being too bright.
7. Chocolate with Strawberry Milk Mauve
The highlights in this chocolate mauve hair definitely have a strawberry milk look to them, and it brightens up the chocolate brown so well that it’s a great unexpected touch for a multidimensional look.
8. Chocolate and Caramel Mauve
The balayage treatment required to create a mauve hairstyle allows for the use of other colors to create the custom mauve result. The chocolate and caramel shades in this chocolate mauve hairstyle are so rich and full of depth that her hair looks amazing.
9. Iridescent Chocolate Mauve
The balayage treatment placed the shades of purple, pink and brown in a way that the look is composited perfectly to appear iridescent. The colors are very discernable while still working together to create the overall chocolate mauve look.
10. Chocolate Mauve with Lilac Lengths
Dark chocolate brown roots meet milk chocolate, then chocolate milk colored lengths before transitioning further into a soft and complementary lilac.
11. Warm Caramel Mauve
This mauve compilation is so multidimensional because of the layers of color built into it that include blushes and mercury to break up how the light is reflected by the hair for this final, stunning chocolate brown and opal rose mauve look.
12. Lived in Mauve Hair
This was an update on a previous color job, but it looks amazing. One of the better parts of the chocolate mauve hairstyle is the way it still looks great as it grows out and that appearance in nailed here.
13. Milk Chocolate Roots with Strawberry Milk Ends
This is the flavored milk inspired mauve, where both colors seamlessly transition right near the roots so the hair can grow out nicely, but the look overall is well done with a light pink ended lob.
14. Smoky Lavender Chocolate Mauve
This is a lighter mauve that is still a great choice, on the tinted end of the silver trend. The colors are so well blended that it is almost difficult to pick them out. They are beautifully blended and the hairstyle is prismatic, gemlike and overall very lovely.
15. Subtle Rosy Mauve
Subtle rosy tinted mauve is not new, but this warm brown and caramel mauve is excellent. The look is multi dimensional and bright enough to show a lot of lightness in the mauve composite.
16. Melting Chocolate and Lilac Mauve
This chocolate mauve hair color is how you accentuate a bob. The prismatic effect is due to the carefully planned out balayage treatment that transitions from chocolate brown and melts into a brown and lilac.
17. Chocolate Milk Mauve
Chocolate and milk mauve look beautiful and bright together. There are as many types of mauve as there are different imaginations to create them and this one is very cool and different.
18. Mauve Melt
This is a complementary mauve melt that transitions smoothly with a very interesting end. The cut of the hair certainly helps add dimension to the look, but the colors are very clear in the design.
19. Chocolate Mauve with Gemlike Tips
The transition from root to tip creates a very interesting mauve amalgam towards the middle of the length, but the colors at the end are bright and very reminiscent of a light gem.
20. Dark Chocolate Melted Mauve
The color transition does not take a lot of length to kick in but the transition is very smooth. The lavender, pink and caramel work very well together to create a really soft look.
