2021 Winter Hair Color Trends

Out with the Old, in With the New

For most of us, 2021 couldn't come soon enough. We've all managed our expectations and dealt with some of the most unprecedented circumstances. And, while the future is still unknown, we do know it is symbolic of new beginnings, new transitions, and new trends! As we face 2021 together, let’s begin the year with higher hopes and happier times. Signature Salon & Spa wants you to take on the year with courage and confidence, and doing so by looking and feeling your best. One of the simplest ways to boost self-confidence is to revitalize your hair color, and there’s no better time than now. Get ready to learn some of this season’s latest hair color trends.

Whether you want an icy blonde tone or a rich brunette hue, there are many great options to choose from. Winter is the season of contrasts, which is why darker browns and light, cool-toned blondes are very flattering even for the coldest days of the year. At the same time, you simply can’t go wrong experimenting with a stunning red palette. Try a passionate vine hue or a brilliant orangey shade of red, and you’ll have no problem finding the perfect shade of ginger to complement your winter skin tone.

Embrace the New Year with Darker Hues

Dark hair is definitely the look to have this winter, and is worn in many different shades and hues. Our expert colorists can transform your dull locks into something brilliant this winter. Contact our Waukesha salon today for a free hair color consultation.

Black with Subtle Brown Hues

While black is very welcomed in winter seasonal color trends, the solid hue can look a little too gloomy for many. Luckily there are many versions of black which will give you the same dark, sultry look without feeling drab. Maintain a striking black color by diluting your black shade with some cacao bean brown highlights to subtly enhance your facial features. If you’re contemplating a shade of black but are discouraged by a dramatic change, discuss the many possibilities with your colorist before you give up on it. 

Cinnamon Kissed Brown

If brown is the hue you want this season, try a chestnut brown base accented with lighter cinnamon toned highlights. The lighter cinnamon color is applied with minimal brushstrokes, giving a very chic and effortless finish. This particular color offers a warmer tone best to complement light skin and cool undertones.  If you’re looking for a subtle change that’ll keep you feeling confident, this could be the perfect hair color for you this winter.

Blondes Are Fun All Year Round 

Winter Hair Color TrendsIf dark isn’t meant for you, there are a number of trending blonde shades destined to turn heads this season. 

Warm Up with a Honey Blonde 

Warmer colors can help brighten our mood on those dull winter days, which is why cinnamon, caramel, and honey blonde hues are welcome through the fall months and into winter. Make the best of the darkest time and bring some light into 2021.

Stay Cool with an Icy Blonde

If warm tones aren’t meant for you, platinum silver can be considered the winter whites of hair color this season. The tone is reflective, and is the perfect way to look cool. An icy blonde color is extremely versatile and looks great with a variety of cuts and hairstyles, including pixies, lobs, lengthy hair, wavy and straight locks.

Statement Colors for 2021

This season’s trends are more than just a little pop of color, they are robustly dynamic. Remember, the bolder the better, so don’t be afraid to try something fresh and new.

Orange and Yellow 

Ready to get daring with the brightest and most unusual hair color for winter? A yellowy orange is making a big statement in 2021. This hot color (both figuratively and literally) will add the perfect amount of warmth and light to your everyday look. The yellow highlights accent this new shade perfectly. 

Pretty in Pastel Pink or Metallic Blue 

A whimsical pastel balayage is the perfect look for those wanting something playful, without all the damage. For something a little bolder, a metallic blue hair color will also make a mark this year. This unique shade of blue perfectly suits a variety of skin tones.  A colorful, lighter shade will soften up your entire appearance while giving your image a big makeover.
