can highlight the wrong things in the winter—like an ashy, pallid complexion. The same thing if your hair is too-dark...
Never fear, here's how winterize your hair colour:
If you're blonde, go more golden and less beige, and ask your colourist to weave both highlights and lowlights throughout your hair for a warmer look.
Light brunettes should consider deepening their hair to a warm chestnut color; dark brunettes, a deep chocolate hue. For both, be sure to ask your colourist for a multidimensional look. If you want highlights, ask for face-framing balayage ones—these hand-painted pieces tend to look more natural on dark hair than do foil streaks.
Amp up red hair with a copper or deep auburn tone—anything but bluish or burgundy, which looks fake. Because red fades quickly, top the colour with a clear glaze to seal it.
Don't go more than two shades lighter or darker—dramatic shaes can look severe against pale winter skin.
