With winter quickly approaching, many of us are looking for new ways to update our look (and our beauty routines) for the cool weather season. And while summer suns tend to brighten our locks with blonde highlights, winter's lack of sun often convinces us to stick with darker, more natural hair colours that don't require as much maintenance (or sunlight) to keep up with.

Not to mention, winter's quintessential dark lipstick trend often pairs quite nicely with darker hair colours, giving us all the more reason to keep our hair locks more subdued when temperatures drop. But that doesn't mean we can't embrace blonde locks or lighter browns in new ways for the season.

From a surprising winter blonde, to an updated ombre and one of Kylie Jenner's metal-inspired hair colours, we're giving you 5 new colour trends to consider and experiment with this winter. And whether you're a blonde, brunette or a redhead, there's a look for you to try!



If you're a platinum blonde that wants to switch things up for the cool weather season, consider a metallic shade that's been taken on by celebrities like Kylie Jenner, Elle Fanning and Hilary Duff: Rose gold. It's daring and edgy without being too over-the-top, and looks great on just about every skin tone. You can even rock this look if you have a darker shade of blonde hair, like Hilary Duff, for example. Compliment it with a hint of blush on the apples of your cheeks and you'll have put a new spin on icy winter whites!


If you're a redhead, consider taking your bold hue down a notch for winter with a red that is far from your typical va-va voom ginger. Instead, it-girls like Amanda Stenberg and Sarah Snyder are opting for terra-cotta (reddish-brown) with blue undertones. If the colour is too vibrant for your vibe, try Kate Mara's more accessible version in cool auburn.


Ombre is a dye-job that is typically done with blonde tips, but the celebs who are rocking the latest versions of the look are taking the barely-there route. Priyanka Chopra, Selma Hayek and Sasha Lane fade their naturally dark roots to a warm, chocolate brunette that richly contradicts the cooler season. This look is perfect for brunettes who want a change, but would like to keep it subtle.


Alexander Wang's latest runway collection was inspired by Venice Beach and rife with sun-streaked hair with dark roots. And while we know it may be counter-intuitive to go blonde for winter, this look is a low-maintenance easy-to-achieve colour that works year round. If you're a natural blonde with darker roots, try the multi-dimensional styles seen on Ciara, Emilia Clarke, and L'Oreal Paris muse Blake Lively .


More and more celebrities are experimenting with something we rarely see – their natural hair colour, especially those with soft black hair like Shay Mitchell, Rihanna and Diane Guerrero. This hue is less harsh than last year's penchant for jet black, and it works with every skin tone.
