Aaaah, winter! Wrapping presents, mugs filled with hot chocolate, cosy nights in to snuggle under a blanket, your annual re-watch of Home Alone, and endless Christmas events that will make both your schedule and wallet go pale with fear. What’s the best way to get ready for the busiest, most-social season ever? Well, let’s start with your hair. Here’s a list of the five hair color ideas for winter you should consider for your seasonal makeover!
1. Hair Color Ideas For Winter: Jet-Black
For some reason, a lot of people tend to go darker as Winter approaches. Black hair is the extreme version of this, but it also offers extreme versatility. Jet black hair makes your tresses look plumper due to its heavy pigmentation, and black hair has a natural, unique shine: adding black hair extensions is the ultimate touch to get the look of the rich and famous. Many celebrities have gone black across the years - think of the luscious dark tresses of Katy Perry, or the Y2K vibe of Doja Cat’s black hair - and it’s easy to see why this shade can be so alluring. Although with some hair colors it’s important to check your skin's undertone first, deep jet-black hair doesn’t have any special requirements of the sort. Instead, anyone can enjoy going dark with this shade!
2. Jet-Black Hairstyle Ideas
Jet-black is rich and glamorous, and it suits pretty much anyone. Gorgeous ink-colored tresses can be styled in different ways to achieve the ultimate glam for this season. Let’s see a few examples.
If you’re looking for a sophisticated look, Hollywood Waves make the perfect hairstyle to make everyone go wow at your office’s Christmas party. This glamorous hairstyle sees your hair crimped in glossy, even, soft waves. It’s a beautiful, timeless classic that has been trending in Hollywood and celebrity showbiz for a long time - hence the name! With a dark, shiny, and compact shade of black, Hollywood waves will stand out and give a pin-up diva effect that is going to be hard to forget. Want to know more?

Tall, sleek and fierce - the high ponytail sits up on the crown of your head and lays long and smooth on your shoulders. Kim Kardashian knows it very well, as she made this hairstyle one of her iconic signature looks. A high ponytail is a perfect hairstyle for those that are not afraid of showing off a particular makeup or accessories, such as a big pair of earrings. If you’re lacking the right amount of volume and/or length to get a killer ponytail as seen on the screen, you can always add wrap-around clip-in ponytail hair extensions to your hairdo, for an immediately sleek, elegant finish.
Perhaps the big change in your hairdo isn’t just in your color, but also in your haircut itself. If you’re looking to give off an edgier vibe, baby bangs are the perfect way to spice things up. Actress Krysten Ritter is the perfect example of how well baby bangs and jet-black hair go together! If you’re unsure about how this hairstyle may suit you, you can always give it a try on clip-in bangs first, before committing to your good old snippers.
3. Hair Color Ideas For Winter: Toffee Brown
Toffee brown is a soft, warm shade of brunette that works perfectly with the signature colors of Christmas: red, gold, and green. You’re likely to see these sorts of shades everywhere, so why not go matchy-matchy? Toffee-brown hair can be “dressed up” or “down” with the right accessories, and its light, creamy texture has the perfect romantic vibe to keep things classy and natural - but with an added pinch of spice. This light, vibrant shade of brown has a strong princess energy - and it’s not surprising seeing that it’s been the signature hair color for celebrities such as Hailey Bieber and Jessica Alba.

4. Toffee Brown Hairstyle Ideas
Toffee brown is quite a rare shade, which will make you naturally stand out among other brunettes. It has a delicate spicy undertone to it that will keep it peppy without altering its overall classy appearance. Let’s see how you can make the most of this gorgeous color with the right hairstyles.
There’s something incredibly romantic, elegant, and expensive looking in a perfectly crafted curly blowout. You can get tighter ringlets for an edgier effect, or softer curls and a side part for a vintage diva finish. Consider getting Hollywood waves too, for a special occasion where you want to wear your hair down. A good curly blowout is rich in volume and dimension - and adding human hair extensions to it will take it to the next level. If you want to add more body to your hairdo, consider adding double-weft hair extensions for density and glamour. My recommendation? Cliphair’s Double Weft Clip-In Human Hair Extensions.
Artsy, chic and seemingly effortless: what’s not to love about a gorgeous, messy bun? Over the years, the popularity of this hairstyle has skyrocketed turning this lowkey, stay-at-home look into a chic, popular option on and off carpet for celebrities and mere mortals alike. Nowadays, the messy bun is also a popular wedding choice (ask Hailey Bieber)! Did you know that you can add single strands of clip-in hair extensions to your bun to give it more fluff and texture?
As this shade works wonders with the classic curly blowout, you may want to experiment with other types of waves and curls. Mermaid waves, also known as mermaid curls or simply mermaid hair, are loose, textured curls that give your hairstyle a laid-back, beachy look. The curls are usually not polished and held together, but shaken out instead. You can either bring your mermaid curls to life with a sea-salt spray for some serious texture or play around with a hair waver for a softer, glossier finish. There are many ways you can curl your hair, but if you’re unsure about how to style your Remy hair extensions you can check out our dedicated blog: How To Curl Hair Extensions: A Complete Guide.
5. Hair Color Ideas For Winter: Bronde
If you’re feeling classy but with an added kick to it, bronde might be the hair color for you. There are different mixes between blonde and brown that can elevate you and make you look (and feel) like a superstar! After all, bronde has been the go-to hair choice for many celebrities such as Khloe Kardashian, Beyonce, Jennifer Lopez and more. We have created different bronde shades to meet the needs of different people swearing by this type of mix, and one shade that could really kick ass this winter is our Biscuit Blondey mix. Biscuit Blondey is the perfect, natural blonde shade: just a touch of sunkissed, and a dash of warmth thanks to its enticing mix of Lightest Brown #18 and Bleach Blonde, #613. This knockout recipe is the ultimate warm blonde addiction, giving texture, depth and character to your natural hair, without looking flat or fake.

Blonde shades in general do work really well with braided hairstyles and waves, for example. Biscuit Blondey is a pretty spicy and mixed hue that works really well with glossy, bouncy waves and slicked-back hairstyles. What’s not to love about this mixed shade? Let’s find out together the hairstyles that would make this hair color’s depth like nothing else.
This lovely, almost rustic hairstyle sees your hair plaited in a thick, sometimes even messy braid. It’s a beautiful, aesthetic classic that has been trending in the past decade and has been seen on celebrities and influencers alike! With this textured, deep shade of blonde, a nice fishtail braid goes a long way. Feeling creative? You can always add hair jewellery to your plait to make it look a little extra. For extra thickness and volume, adding a few Remy hair extensions to your mane will make your braid go from average to stunning in a matter of minutes. Find your perfect match in Cliphair’s Biscuit Blondey hair extensions collection.
High Ponytail With Middle Part
This fierce yet youthful hairstyle is one of a kind - and it owes its popularity to celebrities such as Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner, to name two! Slicked-back hair and a long, glossy ponytail alone can go a long way - but if you feel like giving it an extra kick you can plait your ponytail, style it in a bubble braid, or even flip its ends with a flat iron. With this shade, blonde hair will give you the perfect clean girl aesthetic. Need to add length and volume to your natural ponytail? Wrap-around clip-in ponytail hair extensions will do the trick in just a minute.
Claw Clip Hairstyle
Claw clips or jaw clips are a blast from the past, but nowadays the hairstyles that you can create with a claw clip and a few other accessories (such as hair ties and butterfly clips) are modern and fresh. If you’d like to combine your claw clip hairstyles with other ongoing trends, feel free to experiment! From the zig-zag side part to the slicked-back ponytail, the choices are countless. For a special occasion or a seasonal party, a bejewelled claw clip goes a long way.
7. Hair Color Ideas For Winter: Spicy Red
Red hair is having a moment nowadays, and coppery shades are becoming a celebrity favourite. Cliphair’s new shade, Autumn Spice, channels all the outbursting energy of a spicy red shade whilst keeping a classic, sleek metallic finish. Authentic, romantic and adventurous: red is the color for people that reject labels, break the mould and naturally stand out. Actresses, models and influencers have embraced the redhead style with class and glamour by wearing their hair in various shades of red. A few examples? Think of runway besties Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner, or actress Amy Adams who corrects her strawberry blonde tresses to a vibrant, flaming, bright auburn color.
8. Autumn Spice Hairstyle Ideas For Redheads
There are many ways that you can wear your red hair, depending on the type of energy you want to give off. Ginger hair colors offer an incredible variety, and this type of zesty and textured red shade works really well with curly hairstyles and plaits, to name two. Let’s see three hairstyles for red hair that will bring your new look to life like no one else!
This simple, romantic hairstyle sees your hair plaited in a thick, sometimes even messy braid. It’s a timeless classic that has been seen on a lot of redheads in cinema and tv as well. Lately, braided hairstyles have made a huge comeback, as long hair has been trending for a while now. Celebrities and influencers alike are hopping on the hair extensions wagon not only to achieve bounce and volume in their mane but to add a few extra essential inches to elevate their hairstyle! With this spicy, coppery red shade a messy, fluffy plait goes a long way.
Big, 90s bouncy blowouts have been all the rage lately, being one of the biggest trends on #hairtok that simply refuses to fade away. Think Farrah Fawcett, but with some extra zest. Do I have your attention? I mean, it’s not a coincidence that the biggest influence in this hairstyle’s comeback is a redhead. Grab your round brush and blow-dryer: we're travelling back in time!
Artsy, chic and seemingly effortless: what’s not to love about a deliciously crafted half-up, half-down hairstyle? Over the years, the popularity of this hairstyle has skyrocketed turning this lowkey, stay-at-home look into a chic, popular option for celebrities and mere mortals alike. Paired with braiding, twists and sparkly hair accessories, this hairstyle is also a popular wedding choice! Did you know that you can give more volume and fluff to your half-up, half-down ‘do with clip-in hair extensions?
9. Hair Color Ideas For Winter: Rose Gold
What if traditional isn’t your cup of tea? Let’s dive into funky hair colors for those who’d like to adopt a different type of look. One of the trendiest unnatural shades, rose gold hair broke the internet a few years ago and never left since. It’s a fan favourite, especially for summer and festival hair looks, but this doesn’t mean that you can’t make it your go-to choice in winter! Rose gold owes its popularity to the fact that it compliments every skin tone too, which makes it a fashionable option for a wider public. From Emma Roberts to Kylie Jenner, rose gold tresses have made an appearance on a plethora of celebrities in recent years, and it’s easy to see why; not only does this shade work well with every complexion, but it also doesn’t require too much upkeep when it comes to roots touch-ups (ICYMI: dark roots are cool).
10. Pink Hairstyle Ideas
Whether your pink of choice is understated, dusty or peachy, there are many ways you can have fun with your new, funky hairstyle. Pink hair works wonders with a variety of looks, and you can experiment with waves, curls and updos depending on the occasion and the desired finish. Here are a few examples of how you can make the best out of your pink hair.
Initially starting off as a festival look, the glitter roots fever has soon enough taken over thousands of Pinterest boards, becoming an all-year-round thing. If you're looking for a hairstyle to stun everyone at a party, this might be just what you needed. Glitter roots broke the internet a few years ago (I believe the year was 2015), and they were usually paired with crazy colors such as pink, or blonde hair.
If Beyonce approved it, you can rest assured it’s going to be popular. This is what happened to hair tinsel, a popular 90s hair accessory that quickly died out, only to recently come back thanks to nostalgic celebrities. Also known as “unicorn hair”, the hair tinsel is an accessory to wear on your head like a hair extension, to make your mane sparkle. You can choose a color-coordinated type (gold for blondes, copper for redheads for example) or rainbow-colored ones to give your hairstyle an extra kick. So many options to play with!
If you follow any of the hottest models and celebrities of the moment such as Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner, then you’re probably familiar with the spiky bun - also known as the feathered bun - another 90s trend that made its way back from the naughty decade to keep us fashionable. The spiky bun - also known as the “model-off-duty bun” - has rapidly gained popularity amongst Bella Hadid’s fans, including fellow celebrities such as Olivia Rodrigo.
