The top 3 hair colours Australia is obsessing over right now

Australia's top hair trends

And there’s not a chocolate brown in sight!

Beauty Crew Beauty Writer / July 26 2018

With winter’s chilly weather leaving your general mood a little meh, there’s no better time to embrace a seasonal switch-up in the form of a fun new hair colour to boost your mood. Since it can be hard to pick from the many, many shades out there (remember the days when it was just blonde, brunette, black and red?!), we’re here to help narrow down your options.

If you didn't find your perfect match from these red carpet winter hair colour trends, take your cues from Pinterest and dye your strands in one of these top three trending hair shades. Surprisingly, there’s not a chocolate brown in sight!

Mulled Wine

Can confirm: it’s just as delicious as the beverage. Characterised by a deep red (almost purple) hue, this cosy-looking colour also features a hint of chocolate brown throughout so it’s an easy transition for those who are already on team brunette.

With an incredible 80 per cent increase in saves for ‘mulled wine hair’ since April 2018, we think it’s definitely one to add to your list of inspiration for your next hair appointment.

Chestnut Brown

While we could be fooled into thinking chocolate brown is always the top winter shade, it seems rich, nutty undertones are actually the way to go. And be prepared: you’re about to see this hair colour *everywhere*. 

Chestnut brown is officially the hottest winter shade, with a 260 per cent increase in saves since last year in Australia. The good news is that it’s super versatile and there are countless ways you can personalise this colour. It can work either as a full hair colour or as highlights to brighten up your winter look.

Ice Blonde

Just because it’s winter, doesn’t mean you have to stick to darker hues! A striking blonde is a great way to shake things up – and it’s actually proving to be the latest ‘in’ thing this season both with the celebs and on Pinterest!

Ice blonde hair has had a 60 per cent increase in Pinterest saves over the last year in Australia – so if a warmer tone doesn’t tickle your fancy, go for the complete opposite!
