Thanksgiving Hair Colors

Ready to switch up your hair color for Thanksgiving? You’re right to do some research, as choosing the wrong style can ruin your holiday. This Thanksgiving, it’s all about leaning into fall-inspired hues that make you feel beautiful, and you’ve got a lot of options to choose from. In this article, we’ll share some of the most popular and flattering Thanksgiving hair colors to help you choose the perfect one for you. Let’s get right into it! 

Fiery Red 

Everyone has a rebellious side. If you want to put yours on display this holiday, go fiery red! This is a universally gorgeous shade that’s sure to evoke stares and compliments. The great thing about red hair is that it doesn’t require you to lighten your hair to light blonde for the color to show up. As a result, you can get the color you want without much damage to your hair. Just know that red fades faster than every other hair color.

Chestnut Brown 

Chestnut brown is a classically beautiful hair color ideal for those with both neutral and warm skin undertones. It’s a brown that’s a little on the red side – we love it because it allows you to get a taste of red hair without diving in headfirst. What’s more is that it’s ultra-popular and understated enough to work with all of your outfits. 

Honey Blonde

Just because you have darker skin doesn’t mean that you can’t rock blonde this Thanksgiving. This shade of blonde works for all skin tones but meshes particularly well with neutral and warm skin undertones. If you want to go bold, dye all of your hair honey blonde. To ease into the hue, go with babylights, ombre, or balayage. 

Platinum Blonde 

Do you have cool skin undertones and a thirst for something daring? Platinum blonde will soon be your jam. It’s a cool shade of blonde that’s so light it has the potential to stop others in their tracks. The iciness of this shade is just gorgeous, but it’s important to know that it takes a lot of bleach and a lot of damage to achieve it on natural hair. So, if you’re considering this shade, make sure that you survey the health of your hair first - existing damage will only get worse when going platinum blonde. 


Ever heard of bronde before? It’s a high contrast color featuring a mixture of brown and blonde. This shade is a good fit for those who don’t want to jump fully into either side - blonde or brunette. You don’t have to choose just one! If you choose this hair color, it’s best to go to a reputable stylist to ensure it’s done correctly. 

So, there you have it - some fantastic hair colors to consider for Thanksgiving to make you feel and look your best. We hope that one of these colors is exactly what you’ve been looking for, and we wish you the best this holiday season. Happy Thanksgiving!
