Now that the weather is finally cooling down, the search for dark fall hair colors can officially begin. As for what colorists are saying about the seasonal shift?
“This fall we will be seeing many enriching adjustments to hair color,” Lauren Mildice, hair colorist at Chicago’s Maxine Salon, tells Glamour. “Blondes will find balance and depth through the addition of caramel, honey, and pumpkin spice ribbons added throughout the hair, and strawberry blondes will now transition into rich deep copper shades like auburn.” Everyone’s going darker for the season. And seeing as you’re reading this story, chances are you’re considering it too.
Of course, natural brunettes are sure to have fun in the fall as well. “Brunettes have choices—they can go from neutral to spectacular including exciting combinations of mahogany, plum and caramel-chocolate browns,” Mildice continues. “This season it’s time to rev up our leftover summer hair!”
As for redheads? According to Shvonne Perkins, master colorist and lead educator at home hair color maker Madison Reed, red hair mania isn’t going anyway any time soon, and apple cider-inspired cowboy copper is predicted to be one of the biggest shades for fall. “This hair color shifts the bold copper shade we’ve been seeing everywhere to a more muted copper,” she says.
