Winter isn't coming; it's officially here. Today might mark the beginning of the season, but depending on where you live, it's probably been cold enough that it feels like winter has already been here for a month.

Along with a breakup or important birthday, a new season is when many of us get the urge to make a major hair change—including Sofia Richie.

Since starting her career, Richie has always been a honey blonde, so her new brunette color is quite the departure from her usual look. Although she went darker, the model kept her cut relatively the same and freshened up her long bob by trimming the ends and moving her part over to the side.

Sure, switching your hair color up by going darker for the winter isn't revolutionary, but the extra shine a rich brunette color will give your strands is exactly why it's still such a popular move.
