The change of the season changes our moods and preferences – hot cocoa, mittens, and fairy lights anyone? It’s only natural that you’d want to change up your look too, and one of the easiest and more satisfying ways to do that is to change up your hair color. We’ve got a few ideas for you here – from rich, cozy colors to frosty, stylish shades. Let’s take a look at some hair color inspiration!

Warm, rich hair colors for winter

The coziness of a fireplace, candlelight and hot cocoa all evoke the warmth of beautiful winter days and nights. Deep, rich colors such as reds and browns are perfect if you want to channel that vibe – try Simply Color 3.65 Dark Chocolate or Keratin Color 4.6 Intense Cocoa for a sophisticated brown. Alternatively, you can look to deep red colors to mimic the beauty of winter poinsettia or garlands. These add a splash of color to otherwise dark and gloomy days. Keratin Color 1.8 Ruby Noir is perfect for a regal red color or göt2b® Metallics M76 Real Red for something brighter.

Frosty, cool shades for wintery hair

Even if snow isn’t on the horizon where you live, you can invite Jack Frost into your life through a beautiful winter hair color. Bright blonde is a good start, but you can give your hair an icy touch by going for a metallic color such as göt2b® Metallics M71 Metallic Silver. You could also opt for a mystical, dark midnight blue with göt2b® Metallics M67 Blue Mercury – either with a whole head of new color, a striking panel of blue, or just blue tips for a frosty, wintery effect. We’ve got a dedicated article on getting those blue sections in your hair perfected – look at these moody blue hair trends.

Enhance your natural beauty this winter

If you don’t want a total change, but are still in the mood for a beauty boost, why not try Schwarzkopf’s Glossify which enhances your natural hair color, adding shine and vibrancy. It’s a perfect low maintenance way to give yourself a little pick-me-up. Even adding clear over your existing hair color is a perfect way to pamper your tresses. Summer isn’t the only time your hair gets dried out because heat used in winter to warm your house can wreak havoc on your hair.

Perhaps you’re noticing the first few gray hairs or you’ve already started growing out the grays.
