5 biggest hair colour trends for winter 2020


Yeah!...I made it! This is the final blog for 2019 and covers the trends for the upcoming winter that is already open us...brrrrr :) You will also see on the website I have added a 'Hair Dictionary' if you ever need to know how to say something in French in regards to your hair. 


Hair colours never really go out of style. Sure, a shade may have its moment until another one is ushered in as the new "it colour," but what's more important than following trends is finding a colour that suits you.

That being said, it's hard to ignore the fact that the same handful of colours keep popping up on celebrities as well as our Instagram feeds. And when you're dying to switch up your hair colour for the new season, there's nothing wrong with turning to your favorite celeb or Insta-famous hair colourist for inspiration.


Below I have compiled five shades on their way to becoming winter 2020's biggest hair colour trends. From warm honey blonde to pastel dip-dyed ends, keep reading my last blog for a complete breakdown on the five hair colours you'll see everywhere this winter. 

Rich Mahogany

This spicy colour is still going strong for winter. It is a bit deeper than the shades of red that were so popular this past autumn. It is a rich reddish-brown that looks great on almost everyone because it has both cool and warm undertones, which makes it well-suited to all skin tones and eye colours. 

But while red hair is beautiful, as always it tends to fade faster than any other colour, even in winter. To keep this mahogany shade vibrant and shiny, I recommend shampooing and treating it with colour-depositing products once a week. There is such a wide range of pre-pigmented products now, so you should find you are spoilt for choice. Another, though slightly more expensive method, is refreshing your colour with gloss at the hair salon between full colour appointments. This will cancel out brassy tones and keep your mahogany…well…mahogany!


Rooty Balayage 

This is a super-natural, blended, rooty look that is perfect for anyone who wants a low-maintenance sun-kissed colour. If you want to keep your colour effortless and simple this winter, ask your stylist (at Sequence Paris ;)) to leave your roots natural or melt your highlights with a root melt base for a seamless, gradiant look. 

In terms of maintaining the look, it's all about keeping your hair healthy post-bleach session. Doing a weekly mask at home or better still a weekly treatment in salon and treating yourself to a blowout as well!

Dip-Dyed Ends 

Yep, there's a way to lean into the pastel hair colour trend without completely committing yourself to the look. Enter dip-dyed ends or as the French call it “tie and dye”. Dip dye is very, very popular especially because you can try different techniques and colours. If your hair is not light enough, you will have to bleach your hair before dyeing it your desired pastel or vibrant shade.

The one thing to keep in mind is that pastel colours fade quickly, so if you want the colour to stay fresh, be prepared to get a touch up every few weeks. 


Cool Chocolate Brown 

Raise your hand if you're a brunette who hates those red and orange tones that come through your hair colour. If you threw up both of your hands, cool chocolate brown is just the winter hair colour for you. As seen on celebs like Kim Kardashian, this brunette shade has ashy undertones instead of warm ones.  

Washing your hair with a blue-based shampoo like Vegetalement Provence Lavande Shampoo and Conditioner, is best way to stop brassiness from creeping into this colour. 


Honey Blonde 

While icy platinum goes hand-in-hand with the winter chill, this year, blonde shades are looking sweeter and more buttery. From Jennifer Lopez to Rachel Brosnahan, celebrities have been switching things up by going warm honey blonde. This colour is a good mix of cool and warm, along with being super shiny. For those with naturally light hair, it makes your hair look more healthy and less frizzy.

While purple shampoo is a revered haircare product for blondes, because it neutralises the yellow tones in hair, that's exactly why you don't want to use it on a golden shade like honey blonde. Instead, stick with a colour-protecting shampoo that's sulfate-free and super hydrating.
