Winter hair colors for women over 60 freshen up the tresses with luscious, cool-toned hues. These include any shades that both complement and contrast the cold-weather ambiance.

What tops off your cozy, stylish look best other than a brand new hair color? You can go as vivid as blonde and red or as rich as black and brunette.

Neutral tones are also in and practical, so pick any color between super light and dark hues.

Modern women desire dimensional and low-maintenance colors, which makes balayage quite an option.

Balayage allows the added color to blend in your natural mane, creating dimension and contrast. You wouldn’t see a distinctive, harsh line as your hair grows out. Opt for a permanent color to conceal grey strands if you have a few.
