When your nose is dripping like a leaky tap, your puffer jacket and chunky knit combo are making you feel like the Michelin Man, and you want to cry every day at 4 p.m. when the sun starts to go down, you know it's high time for some kind of pick-me-up. You may not be able to put a hard stop to sniffles or splurge on a chic new cold-weather wardrobe just like that, but an appointment with your colourist is all you really need to add a breath of fresh air to your whole look — and your frame of mind.
While there's something to be said for the natural subtlety of barely-there midlights and multi-dimensional negative space balayage, the colour trend that's really taking off this season is a high-drama, bright-and-glossy, surprisingly flattering shade of burnished copper. Celebrity colourist George Papanikolas says that we can expect red tones to dominate hair colour trends starting... right now. "Red and copper tones are going to make a strong statement this season," he tells us — and seemingly every It girl is already on board.
