Ultra Violet seems to be a medium-dark blue-toned purple in the jar and the name implies a bit of indigo and a bit of purple mixed together. In the jar, it remains true to the idea of violet. I assumed the "Ultra" part would mean a bit more on the neon side with ultraviolet rays being bright. It's a royal purple that fades to an icy blue after many washes. This is one color where any red fades and all the blue is left behind, which is amazing for semi-permanent hair color. I mix this with Purple Haze and conditioner to get a brighter purple that fades to a pretty pastel purple. Purple Haze is a bit too red, Ultra-Violet a bit too blue, and the combination works perfectly. 4 stars for the color name being slightly deceptive but it remaining a vital part of my hair regiment.
I love to color my hair, or parts of it, bright colors and I've been bleaching and dying my own hair since I was 13. Manic Panic gives better and more predictable results than the other semi-permanent dyes available. Bleaching and toning my hair gives me a shade very close to cream so every color I've tried goes on very true. I mix most of the colors with conditioner to get a brighter, even color that fades to pastel or starts as pastel. Suave Naturals or Alberto VO5 are perfect for this (I don't use others due to the ingredients not being optimum for my hair type.)

I bought this with the intention on ombreing my hair from light blue to a purple. It didnt happen that way though. I applied it to my tips and blasted it with a blow dryer until it dryed to make sure the color lasted. when i rinsed it it was exactly what i wanted, more of a bluish violet color. though when i got up the next morning it had somehow changed into a royal blue?!?! anyways im still giving it a three because the results were still beautiful.

I wasn't looking to get violet hair but silver hair instead. I bought this with the intention of unsing it as a toner. I mixed half n half conditioner with dye. I left it on for 5 minutes on my level 8 yellow bleached hair. when I washed it off it was the most perfect shade of silver. It got a crazy amount of compliments on it. The color faded and within 6 washes it went from a cool grey to a pretty ashy blonde. My hair hasn't turned yellow yet so I would definetly recomend as a toner. I did try purple haze which lasted a 15 to 20 washes

Sadly my hair turned cobalt blue rather than the lovely blurple I was expecting...so make sure your hair is blonde as blonde can be before trying this out. It also looks like it's fading fairly quickly, so I'm going to try another brand. On the bright side, it's a pretty nifty way of getting true blue hair without having to bleach out all of the orange from your hair.

This was the first Manic Panic hair dye I ever used. I purchased it expecting a nice purple, but instead I ended up with a royal blue. It didn't look bad at all, mind you, but I was still a little disappointed.
After a couple of days, it began to fade. At about the third day, it turned to purple... but then it started fading steadily from there. By the fifth day, you've got GREY. Out of all the Manic Panic colours I've tried, which is a lot, this one fades the fastest and to the most unpleasant colour.
Ultra Violet is a half-decent hair dye, but I don't like the way it fades to grey. I don't think I'll be buying this one again.

NEVER USE THIS ON ORANGE HAIR.
Before I knew everything I know now about the color wheel and how hair colors work with others, I used this on bleached orange hair (Born Blonde MAX really isn't good for really dark brown hair ^^;)
This is all I have to say:
This kinda worked like a toner. The blue hues in it cancelled out the orange while the purple made my hair look really dark blue with grey patches in it.
Luckily it faded in a week and a half (I think that has been the happiest I've ever seen hair fade :P).
After it completely faded my hair turned a light milky brown color with my roots being still orange.
The only reason I gave it a 2 because the color did fade fast (even if I wanted it to).

I have been dying my hair for years and I especially love using bright stand out color. The first time I tried the Ultra Violet color I was thrilled with the ease of application and the vibrancy. I wash my hair every other day and the color lasted a bit longer than 2 months. The color did not fade to any ugly gray shade but instead faded to a light lilac color. You need to bleach your hair a very specific shade to get it just quite right. A lot of the time, people bleach their hair way to much (Like paper white) or they don't bleach it enough. The color looks ugly when it fades because chances are, your bleach job was ugly. Layering a beautiful color over a bad bleach job hides it at first but when the color fades it looks really bad. Don't blame it on the dye, learn how to bleach your hair properly.

I've used several Manic Panic dyes, and I find they fade the fastest. I prefer punky colour or wild colour (which are half the price).
I typically end up buying MP cause it's easily accessible. It runs for $13CDN at Shoppers. Pricy for the amount.
Like others said this fades fast, to a not so nice gray. I found mixing their red and royal blue dye gives you the same colour but lasts a little longer. Surprisingly enough, I find MP red dye lasts the longest out of them all.
Two lippies overall for ease of use, as I like the jar, and colour turnout in the beginning.
Expensive as frequent touch-ups are necessary, and too much effort. Will not buy again.

I used to use this after bleaching my hair. As far as these types of colors manic panic lasts the longest. They have some shampoos that have color in them that helps a lot too. I used to hate digging the stuff out of the jar! Sadly these colors just wash out of your hair very quickly but like I said I found this brand to be the best out of them all.

So I used this on my sisters hair & I first bleached her hair to a whitish blonde, then I applied Ultra Violet and she kept it overnight. The color was a beautiful blue-violet color but after 2 washes the color faded to a grey color! After this we bought Jerome Russell Punky Colour Plum & that has stayed in for 2 months already & fading to a lovely softer purple. If you want long lasting purple color try Jerome Russell they have the best long lasting purples:)
