I was told that purple acts as a stimulant as it stays in your retina longer than any other color. I'm not sure it is true and I"m not looking it up because I want to believe it. It makes people happy and I'm all about that. This will make you happy to have it on your head, but also all the people who get to see you will be able to take part in all that joy.
