The days are shorter and the temperatures much cooler. Yep, winter is officially here in full force. Are you feeling a bit blue thanks to the change of season? Don’t worry, we’ve got the perfect pick-me-up. Have you heard of one of 2018’s hottest hair trends, mulled wine? If not, trust us - this is one hair dye colour you don’t want to miss!

To be clear, we’re not talking about taking the wonderful warming substance - wine mixed with mulling spices like cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg - and working it into your haircare routine. No, what we’re doing instead is simply borrowing mulled wine’s delicious rich red (with a hint of purple) shade, and throwing it into our tresses for a spicy yet understatedly elegant mane.

Now, you may be asking yourself, “Will this work with my hair type?” or “Will it fit into my overall appearance?” The answers are yes and yes! What’s great about mulled wine is that it’s a versatile, rich colour that can be incorporated into just about every lifestyle and look.

All that’s left for you to do, then, is to head to your preferred hair expert at your favourite salon so they can work their magic (or science, rather)! And while you’re at it, ask your trusted stylist for a few product recommendations to keep your hue gorgeously wine-coloured without it washing out. Matrix’s Total Results Color Obsessed Shampoo, together with Total Results Color Obsessed Conditioner, with added vitamin E and sunflower oil, will keep your hair looking perfectly red and radiant.

Still worried about winter? That’s impossible with mulled wine – the perfect hair colour to tackle the chillier months and keep you looking fiery-hot! In fact, we wouldn’t be surprised if it makes its way into spring and summer too, given how popular this look has become.
