Looking for some inspiration on how to get your hair Winter-2015-ready? It’s time to greet the cool, cool temperature with some of these hot, hot hues.
If you’re interested in changing your hair color and you want something that’s an overall wash instead of just color accents, here is my pick of the top five hottest hues for winter 2015.
Yep, the marriage of blonde and brunette hues is back and it’s bigger than ever. Can’t decide whether you want to go dark or light? No problem! Go both! The best part about this particular hair color trend is that it involves a lot less effort than your usual dye job. If you’re already wearing your hair blonde or brunette, all you need to do is add highlights or low lights of the other color. You just want to make sure that it’s all blended in well together and looks warm and inviting. Look for neutral blonde/brown dyes that are the perfect fall-to-winter transition shades.
This soft, creamy yellow is just the thing you need when you’re looking forward to winter but aren’t ready to bid adieu to the summery shades just yet. Channel your inner fairytale princess with honeyed, spun-gold locks and get ready to beat the winter blues off.
The perfect medium between dark and light that’s neither? Copper! If rich reds and rusts are too striking for you, but you’ve always harbored a secret desire to see yourself as a redhead, opt for this glorious champagne red instead. It’s a more muted take on the hue so you don't have to worry about leaving the salon as a whole new person. Ask your stylist for a copper dye that’s got subtle strawberry tints to warm the look over.
If you’d like a softer effect, ask for a dye that’s got a gold/blonde undertone; for a more dramatic result, you’ll want something with deeper brown/marsala undertones.
I personally love the champagne red hair color trend because it’s a new spin on the ever-fabulous autumn-winter red hair color trend. If you’re tired- or afraid- of the usual cinnamon or mahogany hues that start doing the rounds around this time of the year, the champagne-copper color is just what you need.
If you’re looking to embrace the dark side, here is an absolutely fabulous color trend for Winter 2015. Ask your stylist for a deep, chocolate brown that has a soft, reddish cast to it. If you love sophisticated brown hues but want to add a touch of something special to it, the dark auburn trend is perfect. It lends a fiery undertone to an extremely classic hue. The best part? This is a hair color that will suit just about every skin tone there is. It wears really well as an overall wash but you can also ask your stylist to work in some low lights or do a really subtle, diffused ombre to add some extra dimensions.
This is the darkest color trend for Winter 2015, and while it may not seem particularly striking or unusual at first glance, it is a fantastic bet. For a variety of reasons.
For starters, it’s a classic. You can never go wrong with a true, warm black. Secondly, it is a shade that suits every skin tone, face type and all features. Third, a softer, more diffused black is a lot less jarring than a jet, blue-black.
So, if you’re looking for a change of pace but you don't want anything too dramatic, just a touch of elegance, consider opting for a deep black. You can go for a flat, warm black or pick one with dark, chocolaty undertones depending on the kind of look you’re going for.
