The 10 hair colour trends you should try for a winter refresh

If there is one thing we love about the winter months it's an excuse to try out a brand new shade. Over the summer, we spend so much time in and out of the sun and surf that our strands take a beating. All that overexposure from UVA's and other environmental factors can really do a number on the longevity of our colour. So really, there is no better excuse than to run on over to our hair stylist for a brand new look to try out.

Changing colour can always be a little intimidating, but there is no reason that should get in the way of trialing something a little different. For those a little shy, starting simply with a few baby lights or even a glossy toner can do wonders. But if you're looking to take the plunge we have a few options worthy of your consideration.


Honeyed blonde

Warm, sweet and just a little bit brassy, honeyed blonde is an easy way to turn a classic blonde shade into something grungier. Let dark roots peek through for a lived-in finish.

So dark it's almost black, espresso brown is the fastest way to achieve a glossy shine. Neutral in tone, espresso doesn't throw too much warmth, but it's rich enough to look dimensional when the light hits.

Gigi's neutral blonde feels California cool but not in an obviously bleached way. It's fresh, flattering on all skin tones thanks to very subtle warmth, and easy enough to maintain with amble hydration and regular toners.

Cherry was a winter hair colour trend before Dua showed up, but we can't get enough of her deep reddish-chocolate. It's not for the faint of heart (red fades notoriously fast) but the best thing about this particular hue is that it almost looks better as it fades.


Scandi Blonde

Scandi blonde is crisp, cool and one degree less than a full-blown platinum look. It requires commitment to bleaching, toning and hydration, but the drama factor makes it worth it. To add an element of undone-ness, pair it back with a darker brow and subtle regrowth.

Jessie's bronde is the epitome of low maintenance hair colour. Try adding high and low lights to your mid lengths and ends for dimension, whilst allowing your natural shade to stretch from the roots. Face framing highlights will add an overall sense of lightness, too (perfect for winter when you're feeling otherwise flat).


Cool brunette

Devon Lee is the poster girl for cool brunette. Unlike espresso, this shade has an almost blueish undertone to it. It's youthful and fun, amazing against fair skin tones and a fast-track to mirror-like shine. If you want to touch up your own colour at home, it's probably one of the easiest to achieve from a box, too.


Golden blonde

Chloë's golden hue looks like a god given blonde, only so much better. Warm and feminine, ask your stylist for seamless highlights, warm undertones and a medium to dark blonde base.

Hari Nef is our poster girl for everything, but especially winter hair inspiration. This orange-y caramel is bold without feeling like too much of a commitment; the brownish roots give it a lived-in feeling, as well.

Leave it to Ri Ri to convince us that golden copper is the hue of the season. Brassy in the best possible way, it's all the reason we need to reach for the bleach.
