local hair salonWinter is a time of family get-togethers, reunions with old friends, and bundling up against the cold. Because our sense of style is hidden under layers of sweaters, a woman’s hair is often one of the best ways to make a style statement during the holiday season.

What’s more, up to 69% of women say they feel more attractive after they’ve colored their hair. To make your spirits bright, try one of these professional hair coloring ideas this holiday season:

  1. Chestnut brown
    Why not take some inspiration from those chestnuts roasting on an open fire and go a warm chestnut brown at your local hair salon? Many women decide to go darker during the winter to let their hair stand out against the snow. Chestnut brown is just dark enough for winter, but light enough to work as a transition color for highlights come spring.
  2. Ash blonde
    Ash blonde is perfect for winter because of its sultry, earthy tones. Unlike platinum, which may be too bright for the winter season, ash blonde is just light enough to make a statement without being too bold.
  3. Dark mahogany
    If you’re not fond of going lighter, go a shade darker this winter with dark mahogany. This style has all the benefits of chestnut brown, but with deeper plum undertones that speak to the luxurious side of the winter season.
  4. Deep copper
    Deep copper is a wonderful way to bring out the holiday season without going outright red. Visit a professional hair coloring salon for this color to prevent your hair from turning the same unfortunate shade of brass as your daughter’s saxophone. Try a single-process copper to help keep your style from fading as the snow melts.
  5. Caramel ombré
    Ombré is one of those styles that can work hundreds of ways. For winter, though, complementary colors such as dark brown and caramel give a compelling and lustrous look. The seamless way the colors blend into one another looks especially beautiful when paired with a Brazilian blowout.

The holiday season may be the time for giving, but that doesn’t mean you can’t give yourself the gift of hair color. Visit your local hair salon today to put yourself in the winter spirit.
