Unique Hair Colors to Try Out This Winter


Unique Hair Colors to Try Out This Winter

We all know that summer is the perfect time to try out edgy looks. From dip-dyed locks to juicy watermelon pink and green ombre, you’ve tried it all. And then fall hair color trends crept up on you, beckoning you to tone it down and return to more natural hues. But if you think winter is going to be the season to let your hair color fade out, you’re totally off-base. ‘Tis the season for unique hair colors. So, go ahead and get wild with your color.

Here are our 5 fave unique hair colors to try out this winter:

Terra Cotta Red

This is not your mother’s red hair color. Terra cotta red screams edgy (without being so intense that your boss looks at you funny).

Subtle blue undertones give terra cotta red an extra kick that will set your hair apart from the pack. And because it’s balanced with both cool blue undertones and warm red overtones, it’s actually perfect for literally every skin tone.

Jet Black

Jet black hair has always been a staple of the cool girl. Just recently, though, it’s made a complete comeback with dozens of celebrities jumping on the jet black bandwagon.

Don’t worry, though; it’s never passé to rock a simply stunning look like jet black hair.

Icy Platinum


One of winter’s most on-point hair colors is icy platinum—not just for its frosty name, but also for its instant cool factor.

Though it will take more time and salon visits to keep it looking #flawless, it’s well worth the effort. Icy platinum is definitely a hair color to obsess over.   



Also commonly known as eggplant, this daring shade of dark purple is guaranteed to rack up the Instagram likes.

You may be thinking, “Can I really pull off purple?” The answer is a resounding, “Yes!” Once you try out this unique hair color, you’ll wonder why you ever doubted that aubergine could look so natural on you.


Take a sip of your next winter hair color obsession: shiraz red. If you’re a brunette, rejoice! This hair color was made for you. It’s deep, dark, seductive, and—best of all—playfully intoxicating.

Even if you’re a blonde babe, you can still pull this shade off; it just might take a little more work. You don’t want to end up with pink zinfandel hair instead. Or do you? We won’t judge.  

All 5 of these colors require some serious processing. To keep your hair looking healthy, take some notes from this article: How to Repair Your Damaged Hair.
