Winter hair colors for ladies in their 50s are about flattering shades that match the frosty weather. Cool-toned blondes and browns are the ones very popular during this cozy season.

For stunning women in their 50s, grey strands may start to appear. You may see a bunch in the roots or just a few pieces that blend in your natural tresses. Either embrace them or choose vibrant babylights for a change.

Fine highlights conceal greys while adding a natural-looking dimension to hair. These are even better if done with balayage, resulting in a lower-maintenance color. Blonde is an excellent option as the hue fuses with grey hair well.

If you have natural dark tresses and want soft highlights, brown shades are your go-to. There are chocolate, chestnut, caramel, copper, and a lot more other hues. If feeling adventurous, try fashion colors such as blue and strawberry and go as subtle as you wish.

For whatever shade you pick, make sure it flatters your skin tone and enhances your eye color. Get tips from a professional stylist, if need be.
