Changing your hair color with the changing seasons is a great way to give yourself a refresh and keep your look on-trend all year long.
If you’re looking to make a change this season, keep reading to learn some of the most popular hair color ideas for fall.
One positive thing that came out of all that time spent stuck at home in 2020 was that many people took the opportunity to try out beauty trends they may have previously been scared to try, or that they couldn’t wear to the office.
Fun, funky hair colors are one such trend.
Sometimes labeled “Pandemic Pink,” a light, modern pink hue has been the color of choice for celebrities like Elle Fanning and Keke Palmer. Fanning’s locks got a slight peach tone, making it a perfect choice for fall.
If you’ll be away from the office for the foreseeable future, or if the pandemic has loosened dress codes, this is another bold trend that’s been all over Instagram for months now.
Bright, brilliant shades of turquoise and blue are currently trending. But if you aren’t prepared for a lot of upkeep, it might be best to try this trend out with a wig or some temporary hair dye instead; it will take a lot of work to keep up your color while also caring for your hair.
However, if you’re up for the challenge, this is one hair color that will always turn heads. Just make sure that you’re choosing an experienced, professional stylist to get the color just right and help you learn how to take care of your new look properly.
Chocolate and Caramel Highlights
Brunette has always been a popular choice for the fall season. But if you want to refresh your brown locks or give your look a modern feel, opt for highlights in warm chocolate and caramel hues.
When adding highlights to dark hair, it’s a good idea to talk to your stylist about what colors will look best with your skin tone. If your summer tan is fading fast, the last thing you want to do is wash out your complexion with the wrong tone.
Another popular warm fall hair color trend. While the name may sound classic enough, this next trend is a far cry from the deep tones of those caramel and chocolate highlights.
Instead, mushroom blonde is an earthier, ashy tone that combines light brown, dark, dirty blonde, and a touch of gray. In most cases, these colors are applied with darker roots that lighten as they descend, in an ombre style.
Black and Gold
If you prefer a dark brunette, almost-black hair color for fall, this might be your top pick from our fall hair colors.
Deep brown or black, highlighted with subtle undertones of golden brown, help give moody, dark hair a fresh, radiant look that’s perfect for colder weather.
