Hygge Hair: An Inside Look at the Latest Hair Color Craze

10 ways to infuse warmth and coziness into your look.

The latest hair color craze pays tribute to the Scandinavian value for the quality of coziness and comfort. Hygge is defined as that sense of comfort that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being. Think warm blankets, a cozy fireplace paired with cups of hot chocolate, and the forts you used to build when you were a kid. If you’re wondering how hygge hair plays into this definition, think about hair color versus style or cut. Hygge hair is all about warm colors and tones that are soft and inviting.
