36 Winter Hair Color Ideas We’re Already Obsessed With — See Photos

Winter is just around the corner, and whether the thought of cold air, shorter days, and layering knits appeals to you or not, I think we can all agree that the change of the season is a great excuse to refresh your hair color.

If the ongoing (sigh) pandemic has shown us anything, it’s that people are even more down than ever to experiment with their hair color, both at home and in reopened salons. This winter, there is no shortage of options for those who may want to go bold, and those who prefer a pretty, more conventional hue.

“Whether it’s making your hair more golden for the glitz and glam of the new year or deepening and richening your hair, the winter commands that level of newness that we all want to carry into 2022,” says Santa Barbara-based colorist Christin Brown. “As a hair colorist, it’s absolutely a time where I feel the most introspective and creative.” 

But before you head into the salon, why not peruse some of the cute color ideas a few of our esteemed professionals are seeing a lot of? We spoke to some of our favorite colorists about the hair colors their clients are getting and what to ask for if you plan on going for any of them. So bookmark this page, because you’re gonna need it for reference. “I always recommend bringing photos to your colorist to show the color you are looking to achieve and then discuss if it is the right shade for your skin tone,” colorist and DpHue co-founder Justin Anderson advises.

And with that, let’s get into the winter hair color ideas the pros are loving, along with a little celebrity inspo to tie it all together. Sit back, grab a cup of hot cocoa, and scroll on for the best ones ahead.
