Nicole Richie Dyes Her Hair Purple (For Real This Time)

Nicole Richie has burned us with her purple hair excitement before. It seems like just yesterday she had us all buzzing about a new technicolor hue — only to reveal it was all digital, no dye.

But the latest batch of Instagram photos portraying the star with light violet locks — posted on her account and that of husband Joel Madden — lead us to believe that last week’s Photoshop job was just a dry run for a more permanent lavender look.

Madden posted the above pic last night with the caption “My Girl.” She posted the same one with the caption “About last night…” then added a shot of the two together (below) for a little extra legitimacy.

No word on what inspired the change or whether Kelly Osbourne sent her a welcome basket for joining the very small group of starlets with purple hair. But we aren’t mad at this new look on Nicole (though if she’s pranking us again, we might be!).

Think she finally committed to the purple hue? Are you loving it? Tell us below!

I think she pulls it off better than Kelly Osborne, but, I don’t get the whole lavender hair movement.

I’d like it if it wasn’t slicked back. It’s a beautiful color.

Just stupid. Kelly Osbourne looks down right rediculous and Nicole Richie looks down right ridiculous. Just goes to show their friends and family do not tell them the truth

Mellie on

Lavender is a beautiful color, just not on people’s hair. How bizarre. She’s much prettier with her natural hair color.

katie on

very cool

Tyra on

Love it! I wish I could pull that look off!

Lilyflower on

I like it ^)

Janine Marie Max on

Love it!

Iona on

It looks ridiculous on her whether digital or not and it looks ridiculous on KO too. NR is a gorgeous girl without the stupid hair color

Aria on

The color is very pretty and it suits her.

Belitaven on

I’m sorry, but what a odd looking girl.

Milla on

Ew can’t she get any uglier??
She is famous only because of her father, she has no talent or looks at all.

Anabell on

This hair color isn’t good for anyone!

Katrina on

She looks nice better than Kelly O

Karen on

Looking ridiculous. Grown woman,mother…just horrible.

DaisyMoon on

Unless you’re a pre-teen, colored hair looks ridiculous on you…

NoDoubt! on

again… nobody cares about her. she is nobody, not famous except for what??????

JCL on

She is just lovely no matter what her haircolor!

Chris on

I like it…she looks stunning.

Love it!! I had purple highlights a few years and it was so fun :-)

Dannie on

I’m just glad she finally took those ratchet weaves out her hair.

Please Nicole, only for a minute. I absolutely abhor Kelly Osborne’s color and think she would be so much better looking without that purple hair. You on the other hand are just gorgeous no matter hair color. But it does get old after awhile!!
