Anna Paquin Dyes Her Hair Purple - and So Does Aimee Teegarden!

07/16/2014 at 06:54 PM ET

Two of your favorite TV blondes are taking a walk on the wild side — or should we say, the bright side? True Blood‘s Anna Paquin, 31, and Friday Night Lights‘s Aimee Teegarden, 24, both debuted bright violet dos on social media, joining a long list of celebs sporting purple-tinted hair (including Kesha, Demi Lovato, Raven-Symoné and the original lavender-locked lady, Kelly Osbourne; Nicole Richie was recently purple but just went blue).

Paquin sent off her True Blood character Sookie in style by switching up her dirty-blonde locks for a vivid shade of violet mixed with blue highlights. And of course, she was inspired by the one supernatural character she hasn’t gotten to play yet. “@Auracolorist just fulfilled my teen dream of being a mermaid. @_smoyer whatcha think?” she wrote on Twitter, soliciting an opinion from her husband (and sometime True Blood onscreen love) Stephen Moyer.

His response was super-sweet:

We have to agree with him that the purple is pretty spectacular, especially in the follow-up shot she posted. And she’s not the only one who got bitten by the purple bug …

…Aimee Teegarden also went for a super-bright new do, although hers is a solid violet, with more of a Manic Panic vibe than Paquin’s mermaid-inspired locks. And it appears that’s just the look she was going for, writing “Whatcha think? #purplehair #diy #Selfie.” We don’t know if it’s for real or a just-for-fun at home rinse, but it makes her green eyes pop and certainly makes a statement.

The hair looks great but I think she lost too much weight after she had her babies.

Copycats. Everyone is copying Kelly Osbourne.

Eww. That is something my 12 year old niece would do. Not for a woman

Am I the only one who thinks purple hair on grown women looks absolutely ridiculous?

It’s summer, it’s all about having fun. Life and fun don’t end just because you have kids! Age is a state of mind. :-D

She looks older and anemic.

Lol Anna’s got crazy eyes, in the after pic she posted! I’m not a fan of crazy colored hair. The texture of hair after the process, just looks so blah.

Elise on

@ Gina – you are not the only one! I feel like this is super immature for a grown woman and mother. Oh, and it looks terrible! Dramatic changes in appearance always seem like a desperate cry for attention.

I guess I am one of the “weird” people who doesn’t get the color hair trend (tips, whole head, etc.). As long as she likes it, that is all that matters. If you don’t like it, like me, then we won’t do it.

Yup, they all dying their hair purple, like in Japan, except in Japan, it’s the old ladies that dye their hair purple…funny.
