Lights Out for Winter
With surprisingly mild Fall temperatures, some of us Pittsburgh-ers may be finding ourselves quite adapted to the mid fifties and the sunshine. Don’t let that fool you, though. It is officially December! And we know what that means- sweaters, gloves, hats, scarves and most importantly: new seasonal hues for your hair. It is officially time to transition to the deeper and darker pallets perfect for the winter months.
Why go to the dark side?
Since we tend to wear darker shades in the winter, darkening your hair will help compliment this trend. Deepening the color, contrary to popular belief, actually helps to keep a fairer skin tone from looking washed out.
This doesn’t mean that platinum blondes should jet over to black. Instead, professionals suggest that you simply fine-tune your natural hair color two to three hues darker. For the lighter ladies, adding some darker blonde colors as well as chestnut or light auburn low-lights will help bring a warm glow glow to your look during the cold months.
For the typically darker gals, brunettes tend to sway even darker in the winter. Many will opt for the blackest black. This is a great look for the winter, but be mindful of the harsh color against your skin; this hue can easily wash out even the Twighlight enthusiasts looking to get in touch with their vampire sides.
