Fall Hair Colors to Add to Your to-Do List
1. Caramel Candy
Add a splash of caramel to your americano and then to your locks. Ditch the bleach and go two shades lighter this fall season. By foregoing the damaging chemicals, you’re given more leeway in terms of styling.
Spritz your damp hair with sea salt spray and tie into a bun, your hair will be wavy and full of volume the whole day. Finish your look with a bold lip, simple eye makeup, and a generous portion of sun protection!
2. Fall Bronde Balayage Hair Color
No, it’s not a typo – we checked. Bronde is the combination of blonde and brown and is this year’s staple hairstyle. If haircuts aren’t exciting to you, perhaps this new color treatment will put a pep to your step. A balayage is a beautiful hairstyle if you want to retain your natural color, but are looking to do something different.
For blondes, color your strands two to three shades darker in alternating sections to create a gradient effect. Brunettes should visit the salon to get their hair bleached where a stylist can plan how to naturally transform your brown locks into golden ones. Everyone should invest in a purple toning shampoo to eliminate brassiness.
3. Black and Brown Sombré
Not ready to commit to a haircut and hair color? Lowlights are this season’s It girl hairstyle.
Shade your strands with dark chocolate tones or caramel highlights just two shades darker or lighter than your own hair. Curl your hair to give it dimension and volume, while the shade difference will help build depth. A natural look should be paired with bushy brows, brushed up and tinted with a color-matching brow mascara.
4. Fall Sophisticated Brown Hair Color
There’s nothing wrong with sticking to the classics, in fact, I recommend it! Whether it’s a warm- or cool-toned brown, it’s a timeless summer to fall hair color you can’t go wrong with.
It’s as romantic or as edgy as you style it and it’s just the right lightness to catch the midday sun, revealing full, luxurious locks. Because we’re going with a single shade, add soft waves to your hair with mousse, curlers and a blow dryer.
5. Roasted Espresso
Nothing pairs better with the autumn breeze than a warm cup of roasted espresso in your hands and in your tresses.
Fall is the season of cool hair color tones to match the cool currents, giving chocolate brown hues the spotlight. Keep it luxurious with a purple toning shampoo once a week and a hair mask twice weekly.
6. Fiery Red
Warm up this fall season with a fiery head of hair. Match the fallen autumn leaves with this glorious fall mermaid hair color.
Brunettes should take their time to transition to red hair as bleaching will take a toll on your tresses. Invest in bond maintenance treatments and a great color care hair care system for your locks to last all season!
If you prefer less maintenance (no, still not low maintenance) hair, you might prefer number seven.
7. Copper Crown
A few shades deeper than number six is the copper crown, still boasting rich red tones but with a cuddle-by-the-brick-fire-place tone.
Red hair colors don’t typically last as long as other colors, so this is a great hassle-free option for beauties ready to take the plunge but not for too long. Like caramel hues, this vibrant copper color will reflect the light beautifully and set your OOTD ablaze.
8. Fall Ash Blonde Hair Color
Because it’s such a stylish fall hair color, it will instantly elevate both your makeup and outfit for an effortlessly chic look everyday. This can be your entire fall revamp look.
9. Milk Blonde
No need for purple shampoo this time because we’re loving its creamy and milky texture! Cop the title of girl-next-door with this fall hair color perfect for both fair-skinned and olive-skinned beauties. Babes with medium skin and yellow undertones should expect to look even more tan with this warm-toned hue.
Tip: If your blonde locks have gone brassy, use purple shampoo but limit usage to once weekly. You want to keep the warm hue, but not the brass. Going hard on the toning shampoo will also stain your strands purple, and that’s an entirely different hairstyle!
10. Nirvana Blonde
Inspired by the pop goddess Selena Gomez herself is the nirvana blonde hair color.
Go platinum this autumn to rock opulent waves to match all eye colors. The contrast of this bright hair color will highlight your eye color and even the golden flecks in your eyes. Tint your mascara a cool-toned dark brown shade or color match with platinum brows as well, that’s all the character you’ll be needing this season. The new bold lip, if you will.
11. Shadow Roots on Blonde Hair
Transitioning from your summer hair? Opt for shadow roots to help seamlessly transition back to your natural brown locks. This will help mask regrowth and eliminate the demarcation line between your roots and dyed hair, plus it’s a whole new level of dimension and depth!
The different shades in your hair will team together to create the illusion of depth for a full head of hair, perfect for babes with thin hair. This fall hair color will last you until summer.
Let’s move on from golden tones to the chrome crown worthy of an entire IG feed. Go all out this fall season with a fresh hair color that will reflect even the moonlight. Also, a great hairstyle if you’re prepared to grow out your graying locks.
You know the drill – purple toning shampoo.
13. Bright Fall Hair Colors
Nowhere to go but pop! This welcome pop of color will grant you an automatic upgrade to It girl status. Go red, hot pink, or lime green, but go bright.
Stick to demi-permanent dye – it won’t last as long, but it won’t be as damaging either. You want your hair to make it to the winter, be gentle on your tresses.
