9 Winter Hair Colors That Have Us Ready for Sweater Weather
As soon as the mercury drops below 65 degrees and we finally feel confident that winter is here to stay (at least for a few weeks), we start to implement the necessary wintertime beauty tweaks. We’re talking about swapping in a hydration-heavy skincare routine, getting out the cozy fleece-lined leggings, and searching for a fresh hair color that’ll help our strands fight seasonal dullness.
Much like picking our winter wardrobe, a winter hair color is all about your mood. If you’re an oxblood red handbag type of gal, you’ll want a color that’s just as dark, rich, and statement-making. If you’re a holiday-red lipstick kind of lady, you’ll love something bold, bright, and eye-catching.
Luckily there are plenty of rich reds (mulled wine, anyone?), icy blondes, toasty browns, and cool brondes on the lineup to choose from. Whether you want to take the plunge with a totally new look or bring fresh life to your current color, we’ve rounded up the winter 2019 hair colors that’ll be hot, hot, hot this season.
Need Winter Hair Inspiration? Look no Further Than These Moody Hues
Meet copper red's sassier cousin. With a healthy dose of honey-golden red, your mane will be turning heads all winter long.
This is winter's version of sandy blonde. Flax brown sits perfectly in the middle of the spectrum between cool and warm, which makes it the prettiest neutral color in the bunch. (And we do love our neutrals.)
Channel your inner Elsa and go full-on frosty blonde (like seen here by colorist Justin Anderson). You'll be singing in the snow in no time.
Update that cold brew brown with almost-hidden babylights of bright caramel or gold, starting midway down the hair shaft. This color gives any brunette a touch of sparkle for the season.
Apple cider red might be made for fall, but mulled wine red is everything for winter. Deep crimson or berry red is just the moody touch to tell your colorist.
It's time to let that honey blonde hibernate until spring. Winter is the perfect time to embrace an ashy tone, like this beige blonde by Texas-based stylist Daniel Permenter.
Milk Chocolate Brown
You can't beat this cold-weather classic. Pair rich chocolatey locks with a cozy sweater, and you're basically winning at winter.
If you're not ready to let your brunette roots run wild, invest in touches of golden blonde around your face. It instantly brightens up your look without being too high on commitment.
We're a sucker for caramels of all persuasions during the winter months—but especially when it comes to hair. Warm up your look to go with the cool weather by asking for caramel balayage highlights.
