Purple Hair Is Nicole Richie's Latest Beauty Change—See the Photos!

Thanks to a well-Photoshopped Instagram last week, Nicole Richie convinced the world she’d dyed her hair lavender. It turns out she wasn’t just pranking everyone, the designer really was considering going purple. She took the leap—for real this time—with colorist Danny Moon at Andy Lecompte’s West Hollywood salon this weekend and debuted surprisingly bright purple hair at an Oscar party last night. We can’t think of a better way to ring in spring!
