When it comes to holiday beauty, all of the focus tends to be around things like what themed manicure you’re going to choose or festive makeup you’re going to try out at the annual office party, but we’d like to turn your attention to another area that could use a welcomed seasonal makeover: your hair color

Let us explain: As foodies, it’s safe to say our holidays would not be the same without all of the iconic sweets and treats that come into rotation during the season. We’re talking about hot chocolate, sugar cookies, gingerbread — we’ll stop before you start to get hungry — but the list goes on and on. And while things like our nail art has started to mimic these tasty treats, we’d like to challenge you to give it a try with your hair color. See what we mean with these five hair color ideas inspired by a few of your favorite holiday desserts. 

Salted Caramel Chocolate

If the caramel swirls of salted caramel chocolates draw you in, give this warm balayage hair color a go. It’s the perfect way to warm up naturally dark brown hair for the holiday season and the rest of winter.
