It’s no secret that hair colour trends shift with the seasons. When the jackets and boots come out, gone are the bright blonde highlights, and in come the warm and natural tones to get you through the cooler months. Winter is the perfect time to add soft femininity and provocative polish to your hair colour look, so if you want to make a change this Winter but want something a bit out of the ordinary, here’s the hottest colour trends predicted to be everywhere this Winter.
Even during the winter months, a beach inspired colour is still lusted after by many. If you can’t let go of sun-kissed colour, go for a bronde infusion and opt for bright, buttery highlights. Great for any base colour, pale brunette tones (tones that that fall somewhere between blonde and brown) can give the illusion holiday hair without feeling too summery. A low maintenance colour, perfect for anyone who is a little colour shy or not able to get to the salon for regular maintenance.
Mahogany and Woodgrain Inspired Hues
If you are looking for a warmer, more dimensional colour to transition you into Winter, this is a great look to consider. Combining all the depth of darker, chocolate tones with the brightness and fire of red, using a subtle warm wash to catch the ends of pre-lightened brunette. Red-tinged and woodgrain inspired hues are set to be huge this year. Think ribbons of sandy gold all the way through the hair to reflect light and give a striking warm glow, while a copper brown accent colour has the same effect when it’s focused on just the tips of the hair. Reddish undertone foils will give the colour a subtle richness that still feels natural.
Pastel tones are a fun way to keep you from getting bored with your winter colour. Softer colourful shades can even be blended together to create a chic, multi-tonal effect. Silvery blue and lavender tones give off a cool, smoky look leading to a fun and ethereal finish. Pale strawberry, dusty pink and muted pastels are also a chic way to try this hot winter trend. If you don’t mind a few hours in the chair, ‘opal’ is 2019’s answer to the pastel movement that dominated last year. Taking off on Instagram, this trend uses purples, pinks, greens and blues over a base of pearly platinum, creating a striking opal-esque hue that makes a big impact.
If you a seeking warm and natural-looking colour, subtle caramel tones swirled throughout the hair will deliver delectable style and might be the perfect choice for you. Hand painting ribbons of toffee tones around the face is an easy way to try the trend on dark hair. For curly hair, defining your ringlets with a curl cream to give your new warm highlights a shiny, polished finish will create a sassy look that exudes confidence.
Forget creamy tones, the new trend in blonde is ice-white. One of this season’s coolest trends is a complete 180 degree turn from the more traditional winter look of lowlights. Taking its cues from the style set of the Scandi girl, Nordic white blonde tresses are surging in popularity. The purest of blond colours, almost pearl white, this hue evokes a clean, fresh and icy look.
Gracing social media platforms all over the world, this picture-worthy colour is similar to bronde hair in that it mixes brown and blonde tones but the hair colour itself involves a gradient of the colours rather than a blend. While traditional ombre is all about softness—gently transitioning the hair from one colour to another, for the toasted coconut look think deep brunette roots that gradually fade into bright, blonde ends – just like piece of toasted coconut!
