Trending colours this Winter
People often ask what kind of colours to go for as the season changes to winter.
Although there are fashion trends It all depends on what your natural hair colour is, what colours suit you best and most importantly what you like.
It's time to say goodbye to the warm weather inspired hair trends and embrace what autumn has to offer.
So what choices do we have this season??
For women with very dark or black hair, unless you go for something quite striking – such as the addition of a vibrant purple for example, you shouldn't veer too far off your natural depth. That pallet should never be 4 or 5 shades lighter than your natural colour, otherwise you are likely to have a colour which does not compliment your natural skin tone. You also risk damaging and drying your hair out. So compliment your natural colour rather than working against it!
I love this mahogany plum colour for naturally dark haired girls! It enhances rather than dramatically changes your hair and shimmers with vibrance!
There are many interesting shades to choose from which work really well at this time of the year. Hair needs toning down from the summer months so auburn and chestnut instead of black and dark golden blonde instead oflight brown will help to revitalise your look.
Auburns, browns and chestnuts can offer both subtle and quite noticeable changes. The key to getting it right is in the application. Fine veils of colour will allow you to create good texture. At this level, you can take larger sections and layer on, this enables light to reflect, giving your hair a natural healthy shine showing off the very best of your new hair colour.
Another simple yet effective technique is to place a few simple lighter strands at the front. This will help to blend in with the lighter ends that many woman will have left over from the summer months. Remember less is more, look at Mila Kunis for inspiration here.
This style is subtle yet flattering with a glow of colour coming through the front to give it depth and prevent a dark colour looking too solid.
Ombre rather than dip-dying, like we have seen on Sienna Miller and Kate Bosworth, is a really popular technique at the moment but again this has to be done correctly.
Rather than bright or heavily contrasting colours, applying chestnut, caramel and honey shades of blondes or auburns will warm it up and give the ends of your hair a soft feathery feel, making your hair look full of life and tone.
Are you brave enough to try out this vibrant Rhianna red? Striking, shiny and full of colour this colour is great for dark or light haired ladies! Although using the correct products, shampoo's etc is important in keeping it looking healthy and rich, if you can pull off this look it is definitely worth that little bit more maintenance! Worn with a full fringe gives a striking dramatic look.
