Winter is fast approaching, and with that thought, we’re busy thinking of all the pre-winter admin we’d like to get on top of. Things like ridding the attic of old Christmas decorations we’re never going to use, switching energy providers before peak central-heating season hits, having a big pre-season switch-up of our wardrobes and, of course, booking in for that all-important hair appointment for a winter colour refresh.

Because when it comes to this time of the year, it’s totally normal to want to switch up your hair. Whether your hair is long or short, thick or thin, straight or curly, we’ve got all of the winter hair colour inspiration you need. To find out which hair colours are set to be most popular for the season ahead, we reached out to the experts. Keep scrolling for the six winter hair colour ideas that we can’t get enough of.

1. Rich and Expensive

Whatever your hair colour of choice this season, make it a deep, rich tone. “The new colour of the season isn’t even a colour; it’s more how it looks. It’s all about anything expensive-looking, shiny, rich and warm,” says Katie Avery, Redken artist and owner of Avery, Brighton. And if you ask us, we think a rich, chocolatey brunette can’t be beaten.
