With the changing of the seasons, you’ll probably want to change your hair color, too. Totally normal! So, here are some great winter hair colors that will inspire you to refresh your look and add some variety to your season!
Winter Hair Color Ideas
Whether you want an icy blonde tone, a rich brunette hue or a cute shade from reds for winter, you have a good choice – the pictures below prove that. Winter is the season of contrasts, that’s why darker browns and light, cool-toned blondes are very welcome for the coldest days of the year. At the same time, if you are willing to test the red palette, you can either go for passionate vine hues or try orangey reds, as hot and magnetizing as flame in a fireplace.
Medium Brown Caramel Glaze
The final look we have chosen to showcase in this collection of winter hair colors is this caramel glazed style with highlights. Two shades of brown are combined, enhancing your hair layers and creating amazing depth for your long mane.
Mid-Length Chocolate Brownie
2016 is a great time to try out a new look, and if you’re not ready to go too bold, try this one! The dark brownie color accented with lighter chestnut tones makes these curls stand out for sure!
Very Dark Burgundy Ombre
This look requires many pictures to capture how awesome you look. The accent of plum on the dark (almost blue black) hair is quite striking. It whispers chic and good taste.
Pearl Blonde Ombre
This example of a brighter, softer tone is another blonde option in winter hair colors. Choosing a new flattering hair hue, you should remember to pick a good shade to compliment your complexion. This pretty color is definitely for cool skin tones.
Black and Roasted Cacao Bean Brown
Black is a welcome color in winter seasonal color trends, but the solid hue is likely to look too gloomy. The black diluted with cacao bean brown highlights is another matter. This is a do-not-miss brunette idea for sure!
Cinnamon Spiced Chestnut Brown
Looking up photos for new ideas can be oh-so-motivating! Here is a dark chestnut brown base accented with lighter cinnamon toned highlights. The lighter color is applied like the occasional brushstrokes which look very chic and effortless. Keep a medium length, and add curls to accent those lovely highlights.
Fire and Fortune Orange Pop
Ready to get daring with the brightest and most unusual hair color for winter? This fire orange will give you a reason to smile every time you look into the mirror. The random lemon yellow highlights accent the shade perfectly. Part your hair on the side to get a seductive swoop over one eye, and curl the bottom portion as you wish. Classy, vintage-inspired in silhouette yet modern in color!
Classic Deep Mahogany Brown with Balayage
Winter color trends also include classic options. This timeless alluring look always wins hearts. Use a very dark brown base color, then highlight with a medium brown tone to accent both the darker hair shade and your skin tone.
A cup of hot chocolate with whipped cream and cocoa powder is a famous winter treat that can serve a source of inspiration for your next brown hair color. Use the hues for your new balayage or ombre to show off the most delicious shades in the best light.
White Platinum Long Curls
The lightest metallic shades are another option of winter hair colors you may try this season. Platinum blonde needs some shadowing to pop, and an ash blonde base is the perfect choice for this fabulous coloristic solution.
This is the most fun look we can imagine for your pictures in 2016! Blue, teal and lavender make a lovely color combo, and now you can apply it in your hair color. With a shiny finish your flowing waves will look like pure silk! You will love the way your length shows off the hues!

When searching for winter hair colors, remember, grey is a trendy option! It’s a bit longer process to get this sophisticated hair color, but if you’re willing to sit, you can have this amazing look! Length plays a big role, as well as the natural wave that flows down. Part your hair on the side for a stunning asymmetrical look.
