Muted versions of bright hues are an intriguing choice for cold weather fashions. The hair colors shown here feature a tarnished overlay of dark pearlescence which lends an air of mystery. Choose from cool rosy brown, deep crimson or blackened sea green. These rich shades are sure to impress. Click the style notes for the professional formulations. –Laura Martin
