18 June 2019

WORDS BY Fashion Quarterly New Zealand

Forget the New Year; a change of season is the perfect time to switch up your hair colour and revive your strands after summer.

If you’ve already made changes to your beauty routine with winter impending, it might also be time to make a salon appointment ASAP.

A subtle or drastic change will no doubt have you feeling like a brand new woman, so we’ve rounded up the biggest winter hair colour trends to kick-start your seasonal mane makeover.

Scroll for the hair trends that will dominate the season:



With autumn leaves falling all around us, what better way to mimic the scenery than with hair? Copper has been named the breakout hue of 2019, with Hollywood stars such as Kate Bosworth, Emma Stone and Sophie Turner inspiring us to go ginger. The colour comes in many forms making it easy to tailor the trend to your skin tone.


Strawberry blonde

A blend of copper and golden blonde, this shade is the perfect option if you’re unsure about going full-blown red. Blondes will find it particularly easy to transition to strawberry blonde over winter, with it bound to brighten up gloomy days ahead.


Scandi blonde

Trends have been moving away from cool, grey tones to something creamier. Enter ‘Scandi blonde’ – a platinum colour with buttery undertones rather than silvery, set to be 2019’s “it” colour. To avoid it looking brassy, warm and cool tones can be combined within the toner.


Rose brown

Brunette beauties’ answer to rose gold hair, this trend has been floating around Instagram since last year and shows no sign of slowing down. Combining peach, gold and pink hues, it results in a multidimensional, metallic finish that is gorgeous for winter.


Cold brew brown

This warm brunette shade inspired by iced coffee is particularly great for those with dark hair who want to incorporate warm tones without commitment. The look involves adding a blend of neutral and golden tones throughout the hair for dimension.


Living coral

For a more playful look, why not opt for peachy vibes? “Living coral” is Pantone’s Colour of the Year after all. The mood-boosting shade ranges from ultra bright to soft and muted.
