Hair Color How To: Create Anna Paquin's Mermaid Hair

Formerly blonde True Blood star Anna Paquin made a drastic beauty transformation recently, fulfilling her teen dream of “being a mermaid.” Her multi-colored mane is a deep shade of purple with touches of turquoise and sea foam green.

“This deep, ocean violet color looks amazing on everyone! The green and blue peek-a-boos throughout especially flatter those whose skin tone look best left cool,” says PRAVANA Artistic Hair Color Director, Vadre Grigsby. Check out Vadre’s formula below to replicate this look:


  • Mid-shaft: PASTELS Mystical Mint + PASTELS Blissful Blue + drops of VIVIDS Blue
  • Pieces throughout: VIVIDS Blue and PASTELS Blissful Blue.
  • Ends and Face-Framing Pieces: PASTELS Luscious Lavender + VIVIDS Violet + VIVIDS Clear
  • Through Top and Sides: PASTELS Mystical Mint + VIVIDS Green + VIVIDS Clear
