If you’re looking for something a bit bolder, dyeing your hair a festive colour will definitely give you the wow factor. Festive hair colours could be a great family look for the holidays. If you’re not too keen on dyeing your hair red or gold, a quick fix is to try a temporary colour spray instead.
