Winter Might Be Cold, But These 5 Hair Color Trends Are Hot
What's cooler than being cold? Trying a winter 2019 hair color trend. Dyeing your hair won't transport you to a tropical island, but it can fix your flat, static-y hat hair. Hear us out: Winter's hair color trends are so gorgeous, they'll make you want to ditch your beanie — even if it means feeling a little more chilly for three months.
For platinum blondes who think their color is a little too icy, warm things up with a bright, golden shade. If you're a brunette, update your color by switching to a rich chestnut brown.
Whatever color you're feeling, we turned to Sharon Dorram, master colorist at Sharon Dorram Color at Sally Hershberger Salon to get all of the info you need to bring with you to the salon in order to achieve the look.
Here, the only five hair colors worth trying for winter 2019.

Yes, being too lazy to get your roots touched up is now officially one of winter's biggest hair color trends. Except, these grown-out roots actually look good. Dorram says that blended or "shadow" roots as seen on Serena Williams and Margot Robbie works well for both brunettes and blondes. The key is to get highlights that aren't far from your natural base color so that there isn't too much of a contrast once they're grown out.
"There really isn’t much of a demarcation from where the highlights start and stop, so you get an effect that looks almost like the sun or like children's hair color," says Dorram. "The key is to blend soft, subtle, shades delicately and build up the highlight so that it looks natural. It may take several sessions to get this look."
In 2019, flannel red isn't just the color of your dad's favorite weekend shirt. It's the name of one of this winter's trendiest hair colors. The look is perfect for blondes that want to usher in the cold weather by warming up their hair color.
The only caveat is that dyed-red hair fades quicker than any other color. Dorram recommends using a natural, nourishing conditioner like Virtue Labs' Restorative Treatment Mask to preserve your new shade.
It might be winter, but that doesn't mean you have to give up your cold brew — at least when it comes to your hair color. The fall color trend is still going strong this season. "Dakota Johnson’s 'cold brew' brunette is luscious, opulent, and a perfect winter hair color," says Dorram. "The look is achieved by painting subtle highlights on the ends of your hair, which will warm up any skin tone."
If you're over the high maintenance of being platinum, consider ditching your icy blonde for a warm, creamy shade like Kaley Cuoco or Jennifer Lopez . "This multi-dimensional look has roots from the natural base color while the rest of the hair has layers of baby blonde," explains Dorram. "It’s more buttery, yet very bright, and not monotone like most platinum blondes."
"Brunette colors like Emily Ratajowski's warm chestnut are super popular during winter months," Dorram says. "When the temperatures drop, it's a signal to deepen and richen up your hair color."
If want your hair to look more shiny, gIossy, and healthier without adding highlights to your base color, this brunette shade is your best bet. Dorram suggests using a sulfate-free shampoo to keep the color from getting brassy. Aveda's Dry Remedy Moisturizing Shampoo doesn't have sulfates in it, plus it'll keep the dry winter air from drying your hair out.
