Our Favorite Winter Hair Colors for Blondes

Greige Blonde

Greige blonde is definitely having a moment on Instagram right now. This ashy golden beige combines grey tones with beige for a hair color that looks totally modern. We love this blonde hair trend for the winter, since the cooler tones of this shade match the cooler temperatures outside. And if your natural hair color is a dark blonde or light brown, this shade is actually pretty low-maintenance. Just use a toning shampoo once a week to maintain the cool tones.

Blended Balayage

The blended balayage hair trend has dark roots that fade into a soft blonde. The highlights should frame the face, which will help to brighten your features on overcast winter days.

Tip: make sure to visit a colorist who has experience with blended balayage, since this is an advanced hair coloring technique.

Honey Blonde

If you can’t be at the beach, bring the beach to you with this blonde hair trend. The warm mix of dark honey blonde with sunkissed strands is the perfect way to keep warm this winter. This winter blonde is also a great choice for brunettes, since it’s a way to dip your toe into the blonde pool without going too light.

Toasted Coconut

Toasted coconut is another blonde hair trend that we’re spotting all over the ‘Gram. This high-contrast look has dark, warm roots that melt to a light blonde at the ends. The light blonde shade is then toned to give it an icy finish.

For natural brunettes, this hair color is a low-maintenance way to experiment with blonde shades. Natural blondes will require more maintenance to darken your roots, but all hair shades can try this winter hair color.

Snow Blonde Hair

Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean that you have to go darker with your hair color! In fact, you can do just the opposite and embrace the snow hair color trend.

Snow blonde is platinum with as little yellow tint as possible. Just keep in mind, this hair color is not easy to achieve and is best sought with the help of an experienced colorist. Snow blonde is also more high-maintenance since you’ll need to work to keep brassy tones from entering your locks by using a toning conditioner frequently. But if you have the patience to pull it off, we say go for it!

Winter Hair Care Tips for Blondes

Whether you’re a natural blonde and lightening your hair a little, or a natural brunette and lightening your hair a lot, there’s no doubt about it: bleach is definitely damaging to hair. And when that bleach damage mixes with cold, dry winter air, you could have a hair disaster on your hands. The solution? Keep your hair in tip-top condition by adding Viviscal supplements to your routine. Viviscal has a combination of AminoMar™ marine collagen complex™ plus key vitamins and minerals that’s proven to promote existing hair growth from the inside for gorgeous, healthy-looking hair on the outside.*

Blonde hair also tends to be finer than other hair colors. If your flaxen locks lack body, try styling with Viviscal Gorgeous Growth Densifying Elixir. This lightweight, body-boosting leave-in treatment creates the appearance of thicker-looking hair. Just apply to damp or dry hair before styling hair as usual.
