During the cooler months, you’re probably looking for ways to get cozy, like lighting your favorite candles, putting on a face mask, or sipping on a hot beverage.

If you’re in the market for a hair color change, keep reading to learn how to get this sweet shade that’s perfect for the chilly seasons. 


What Is An Apple Cider Hair Color? 

Just like the name suggests, apple cider hair color is inspired by the fall favorite drink. It’s a warm, light auburn hue with hints of gold and copper. If you’re a fan of toasty shades that add tons of warmth and brightness to your look, this is the fall and winter hue for you. 


How To Achieve Apple Cider Hair Color 

When it comes to transforming your strands in order to sport this cozy hair color, there are several ways to do it. Below, we’re sharing a few of them. 


1. All-Over Permanent Hair Color 

For a solid, even coat of apple cider color, you can head to a salon and have a colorist transform your hair using a consistent shade all over. Or if you’re into changing up your color DIY style, try the L’Oréal Paris Superior Preference Fade-Defying Shine Permanent Hair Color in Lightest Auburn. It provides a rich tint that’s fade resistant for up to eight weeks. If you’re looking for something to cover stubborn grays, the L’Oréal Paris Excellence Créme Permanent Triple Protection Hair Color in Light Auburn is for you. It has 100% gray coverage and is gentle on the hair. 


2. Balayage Highlights 

If you’re looking to sport a hair color with dimension and depth, opting for balayage highlights will get you there. You’ll want to start with a light auburn base color and add in gold and copper balayage to achieve a multi-faceted apple cider hair color. The balayage technique involves strategically painting the highlights onto the hair to give it a natural look, so be sure to head to a trained professional to get the best results. 


3. Ombré

Because apple cider hair color is a combination of warm hues like copper, gold, and red, it’s an excellent color choice if you’re looking to try the ombré hair trend. Ask your color specialist to give you a rich auburn shade at your roots that subtly fades into copper and gold towards the tips. It will make for a gorgeous, dimensional look full of warmth and brightness.
