Vivica Fox is the latest celeb to give purple a try this summer and we love her for it. The beautiful actress and TV host has a popular wig line so she is always looking stellar with her hair but something about that purple has gotten us mesmerized. Purple is in for many entertainers. While many are opting for the color in remembrance of the larger than life Prince, purple is a beautiful hair color that looks amazing accompanied with our melanin.

Vivica shared on the ‘Gram her vivacious look before she cohosted the Hollywood Today Live show. Looking years younger and gorgeous as ever, you cannot pass up the fact that her hair is shiny, sexy and taking the spotlight.

Not sure if purple will work for you? Grab a wig, or try some temporary hair color to see how the color looks on you prior to a final commitment. That’s what the celebs do and there is nothing better than versatility when it comes to hair. Go for the bold purple too as Vivica’s is bright and perfect for her cohosting job yesterday. It was the perfect color for her to give some much-needed advice to a fellow entertainer (Leslie Jones) and the video below reminds us why we love Vivica!

Purple is definitely the color to rock summer ’16!
