At The Studio Academy of Beauty, we’ve always loved the color purple. It’s even our owner Cathy‘s favorite color! We have known purple is a powerful, vibrant color all along. This year Pantone (the world-renowned authority on color), has declared ultra violet – a vibrant purple hue, as the “color of the year” and we are all for it.
Ultra violet symbolises the mysteries of the universe, the beauty of the unknown, and believing in our creativity. Now more than ever, we need new ideas, the courage to speak up, the passion to follow dreams, and the endurance to never give up. Sounds a lot like The Studio Academy of Beauty

Why Ultra Violet

This color has been a major influence on brilliant artists for decades. Musical icons Prince, David Bowie, and Jimi Hendrix incorporated shades of violet into the music industry to showcase their individuality and creative side. However, violet made it’s impact long before western pop culture took over. Throughout centuries, royalty wore violet to symbolize extravagance, creativity, wisdom, dignity, grandeur, devotion, peace, pride, mystery, independence, and magic! It’s the type of color we would like to wear everyday.

Students Work

At our “Vibrant Color Day”, students incorporated the color ultra violet in their looks. We had so much fun working with such a strong and vibrant color. It was awesome to see our students show their creative side.

Wear Ultra Violet

We understand that wearing a color as bold as this one can be intimidating. It’s all about moderation. We have picked some of our favorite looks that are centered around ultra violet. Take a look and be inspired!
