Winter can be a dreary time of year, especially if you’re at your wits end scraping ice off your car and shoveling snow from the driveway. The sky is often gray and bleak, but that doesn’t mean that you have to fall into a hair pattern of dull and boring. If your locks could use some revitalizing, take a peek at these five brilliant colors for inspiration!

Burgundy: You don’t have to have fire-engine red hair to attract attention. There are shades of red that look a bit more natural. Women with medium skin tones can easily pull off this hair color.

Copper: Copper hair can be absolutely gorgeous, if you can steer clear of harsh oranges and brassy undertones. Instead, think more along the lines of a dark strawberry blonde. Having a light-brown base can help avoid an orange overload. Women with naturally light hair (blondes and light brown) can easily rock this color.

Milk Chocolate: A rich, milk-chocolate hair color never goes out of style. Dark enough to avoid looking mousey, but not so dark that it looks black, a creamy, milk-chocolate color will look great with all the winter colors in your wardrobe. Women with medium to dark skin tones can really make this color look amazing.

Honey Blonde with Lowlights: Women with naturally light hair and skin are best suited for this color. Simply add in some honey highlights and a few dark-blonde lowlights and you are good to go. This color is low-maintenance enough that you don’t have to keep up with roots when the harsh winter air is already sucking the moisture from your hair and scalp.


Deep Purple: If you have naturally dark hair, like off black or jet black, adding some deep purple highlights can create a stunning effect. And by deep purple we mean dark, plum-colored hues, avoiding anything that resembles pastel or an Easter egg!
