Lots of people make changes after the new year with resolutions and attitude changes and if you're ready for something different in your life, consider switching up your hair color.


In the winter, tons of women experience their hair becoming darker because of the lack of sunlight and warmth, but who says you can't bring back that warmth or embrace the cold with your hair?


Whether you like an icy blonde or a warm honey brown, whatever your style, there are plenty of stylish hair color trends to choose from.


If you're lacking inspiration, check out this list of hair color trends for 2022 and start making a Pinterest hair board to show your hairdresser at your next hair appointment.


1. Honey Blonde Highlights

If you're looking for a minimal change in the new year but also add some warmth into your hair, then honey blonde highlights are a great idea. You can be as minimal as your want with these sorts of highlights or go all out with a full head of highlights.


The warm honey blonde is so beautiful in the winter and brings out a natural glow to your hair, it's also very "in" right now and everyone will love the new chic style on you.


You also don't need to be blonde — plenty of women opt for dark brown and bronde hair to add a little lightness to your overall color.


2. Dark Chocolate Brown

Megan Fox is everywhere this year, so there's no better time to imitate her signature dark chocolate brown hair.


This trend is going to be very popular in 2022 as she's been an icon in 2021 — we can't get enough of her and Machine Gun Kelly. Her long dark brown hair is an iconic and beautiful color and cut that's sought after by many women.


If you want your hair to look like hers but your hair isn't that long, while you're getting your hair colored to dark chocolate brown, you can ask at the end if you could have some length added with extensions.


3. Beautiful Bronde

One hair color that doesn't get enough credit and attention is bronde hair. Some people naturally have bronde hair and don't like to embrace it and end up going fully brown or blonde. However, bronde is making a comeback in 2022 and we are calling it beautiful — especially if you add in some warm-toned blonde highlights with your bronde, it makes the color pop giving your beautiful dimension and color.


4. Natural Ginger

If you've been dying to try ginger hair then this is a perfect way of transitioning into it. If you have brown hair this is even better, as toning your hair with a red can get you the perfect natural ginger grown that will add some brightness and beautiful red tones to your hair.


Ginger red is also a popular trend predicted for 2022 as the wintertime makes everyone want to turn to the red side.


5. A Bold Pop Of Color

Sometimes in the new year, you want to make a bold change. If you're looking for an easy way to do that, why not try a pop of color?


The high contrast look is very popular right now with dramatic pops of color in wide sections of hair. This is also something you can try with semi-permanent hair dye to see if you like the style — if so, you can get it permanent next time.


6. Deep Dark Red

There's something about dark red hair in winter that makes it a color lots of women go after. The deep dark red color is something you might see more of in 2022 because it's both bold and classic.


It's not hard pull a red off with practically any skin tone — the color tends to look beautiful and natural. This deep dark red is perfect for any brunette who wants a bold new change in life, so why not start with your hair?


7. Icy Blonde

There's no other color that comes out more in the Winter than a platinum blonde. This icy blonde color is incredibly attractive and especially pretty in the wintertime. The color compliments and upgrades your outfits and style during the new year.


However, in order to get the perfect icy blonde, you absolutely must go to a professional — this look is not easy to pull off as a DIY.


In order to go platinum, you must use bleach. Not only can handling bleach by yourself be dangerous, but you could end up with stringy, dried-out yellow hair ... or even worse, no hair at all. So trust the professionals and remember: you get what you pay for.


Go for that icy blonde you have always wanted to try, and be bold in 2022.
