It's official! The ombré is here to stay. But unlike the dip-dye look of before, this style is all about using complementary colours versus contrasting hues. For dark brunettes, we're loving a seamless bronze melt from the mid-lengths to ends.
While your first instinct may be to go darker and cooler for winter, try layers of chestnut brown, instead, which help to add a warmer tone to your skin. And come spring, it's a perfect transition shade/base colour for highlights.
Honey-blonde hair is the ultimate in-between shade for brunettes and blondes who want a minor change without looking too severe. Jennifer Lopez amped her brown hair up a few notches to an autumnal bronde (brown and blonde), proving the colour is just as convertible for winter as it was for fall.
Our favourite of Jennifer Lawrence's hair hues is her recent ash blonde with platinum, face-framing highlights, which, honestly, is wearable every single day of the year.
Barely there balayage:
Let's be real: Gorgeous, low-maintenance colour is what you want when the weather outside is constantly terrible, which is why we're so in love with Joan Smalls' grow-out friendly route with touches of balayage on the mid-lengths and ends. If you're a brunette, try soft waves caramel, and if you're blonde, try a teensy-bit blonder.
Leave it to Beyoncé to be both glow-y and frosty at the same time. Just in time for winter, her caramel highlights have been taken from blonde to icy white-gold. Almost like champagne on ice.
Sure, this one seems only attainable of you already have red hair, but fun fact: Sophie Turner's natural hair color is actually blonde. With the right colourist—please, never try to get red hair at home; you'll almost always end up with some peachy-pink disaster—you can try a single-process copper hue for winter that won't be at risk of fading in the summer sun.
If you have your heart set on going darker, try this slightly subversive shade of ultra-dark chocolate mauve. The plum undertones add a quiet vibrancy that suits winter's moodier vibes.
