Everyone loves to try a new look around the holidays, something to show off to family and friends when celebrating Christmas, or a great new look to kick off the New Year in style.
But rather than going all out on a new haircut, or trying to get the hang of a new hairstyle during a time when you've got little time to spend hours styling, a new hair color is a great way to make a quick and easy change.
The latest hair color trend is a hair color that is darker at the roots and lighter on the ends, which creates a finish that is both natural looking and interesting. A red hair color is also right on trend at the moment, thanks in part to big name celebrities, such as Rihanna, adopting a red hair tone.
If a more classic, conservative hair color is your preferred choice then enhancing your hair with a color that looks natural, or is as close to your natural hair color as possible, will always create a beautiful look. Create a great look with hair highlights and lowlights in colors that match and compliment your base hair color around your face and through your mid-lengths to achieve a stunning finish.
A hair color that adds some warmth to your usual tone is a great way to enhance your existing hair color without a drastic change. This great example takes a black hair color and uses fine, red highlights scattered throughout the top layers to create a warmer color shade. The look isn't over the top or dramatic, but still does a good job of adding a nice, subtle change.
If you've got a great short hair length, a luscious long length, or a mid-length 'do that you're happy with then use hair color to highlight the great features of your hair length. This short style uses fabulous red tones to draw attention to the great asymmetrical haircut.
If you want hair color that will draw some attention then a great bright shade is the way to go. Steer clear of using a bright color throughout your whole hair and just highlight sections, such as any hair around your face, bangs or just in the mid-lengths for a colorful surprise when you move or style your hair different ways. We love this purple shade, but you can also try blue, pink and even red or green to get you in the Christmas mood!
Our final holiday hair color suggestion is the option of adding hair color which will enhance your hairstyle. How great does this side updo look with lashes of hot pink hair color! To achieve a similar look, use colored clip in hair extensions or spray-in temporary hair colors to add some glitz and hair color fun to your look.
