While changing our hair color doesn't come as easily as changing our clothes (nine hours in the salon will prove that to you), it's a fun update that can help refresh your look (and your soul) for the New Year. So rather than let you google "winter hair colors" for the next few weeks, we took all the guesswork out of it. Because while there are so many colors to choose from, there are a few that are particularly popular right about now—and no, they're not the usual boring options. 

Below, find popular shades for you to try while the weather is cold, as explained by two of the best colorists in the biz. They break it down by shade ideas, the products you'll need to achieve the look, and how to explain it to your chosen colorist at the salon. That way you won't have to do much of anything other than choose your favorite and bring it with you to your next appointment. Keep scrolling for all your winter hair color inspiration.
