The Gorgeous Mulled Wine Hair Trend Is Here To Get You Through Winter

December 20, 2017 by Lisa Fogarty
shefinds | beauty

The days are shorter and colder and hair colors like beachy blonde, strawberry, and autumn’s Tiger Eye brunette are starting to lose their zing. Winter is the best time to try out a new shade like this season’s hottest: mulled wine. With the absence of strong sun rays that fade reds, blondes, and brunettes and zero threat of making contact with dehydrating salt water for at least another 6 months, this hue is the red/brunette hybrid every fashionable girl from Maine to San Diego is lusting after.

So, what exactly can you expect from mulled wine hair? The color, which can be described as a combination of red, purple, and cocoa, has strong ’90s roots and is, of course, named after the mulled wine alcoholic beverage, which seems to go down a lot easier on chilly January nights. It’s an unusually warm color that lacks bright pops of gold and can be customized by a salon expert to suit your skin tone. If you’re on the pale side, a brighter, Ariel-like wine looks super pretty. Meanwhile, darker complexions look stunning in deeper and more dramatic shades of wine.

If you’re wondering how mulled wine translates to hair, check out these incredible transformations and see for yourself. This truly is one glam, gorgeous hair shade that isn’t too bright or in-your-face red, or that requires quite the same level of maintenance as vivid reds (because, as you may know, most reds take major commitment).

Long hair in mulled wine looks even more dimensional with a few added highlights in the brightest red imaginable.

How festive is this pinot noir shade with super-cute hair accessories to jazz it up even more?

A deep, dark, mystical shade of mulled wine.

This woman’s take on the mulled wine trend is called Midnight Rose. Remember how we said you can easily personalize this shade? If your hair color desires skewer more violet than red, they can easily be achieved in this one rich hair color.

A more subtle take on mulled wine — one with plenty of chocolate brown strands left in. This style is perfect for anyone who is color shy and like to ease their way into a new, unfamiliar shade.

How To Get Mulled Wine Hair

Now that you’re 100 percent in love with mulled wine hair and want it — this very second — let’s chat for a moment about how to achieve the look. If you are blonde or have very light brunette or red hair, the chances of DIY success are slightly more in your favor than if your hair is dark and may require bleaching before this shade will take. At-home dyes like Revlon ColorSilk Luminista in Dark Red and Garnier Color Sensation in Intense Burgundy can get you there without forcing you to break the bank in pursuit of mulled wine hair.

But here’s the thing to always keep in mind: the healthiest shades of mulled wine incorporate several different tones that work with your natural hair color. Unless you know your way around dyes and can mix colors with your eyes closed, there really is no substitute for a professional hair colorist who will save you from the fate of orange hair.

However you decide to go about achieving your mulled wine hair dreams, this is one trend that will get you through the dreariest of winters.
