It’s time to get officially excited about fall hair colors. Sure, we love summery sun-kissed highlights and ice-cold blondes, but summer doesn’t necessarily have a lock on the best hair colors. We’re seriously attached to fall hair colors, when shades get richer, warmer, deeper...dare we say, yummier? With hair color shades like warm espresso and cinnamon spice balayage on the menu, we’re already craving a change of seasons and looking forward to autumn’s best hairstyles. Pull on your coziest sweater and slippers and join us as we dig into this year’s top 10 fall hair color trends...all of which sound downright delicious.
The red wine hair color trend, a true fall classic, is happily still going strong in 2021—and mulled wine is still one of our favorite warm red hair colors for fall. We love Zendaya’s deep red bordeaux with just a hint of berry and warm auburn tones. You can go full tilt with permanent hair color here, or you can apply a semi-permanent gloss for a plum-toned shine. Either way, cheers to this fall favorite—mulled wine red hair.
You’d order a tall iced coffee in the summer, but a hot espresso drink in the fall, are we right? Warmer fall hair colors will continue to be a huge fall trend in 2020—think of espresso brown hair color as your way to cozy up to a deep brown shade. It’s an autumnal spin-off of cool coffee brown hair color, if you will. Raise a cup to Shay Mitchell’s gorgeous dark hue...we also love how her deep side part brings the drama.
Highlights, balayage, and ombré hair color trends are all popular hair color trends heading into fall 2021...and we’re huge fans of how elegantly effortless butterscotch bronze, brown-blonde highlights come across. This multi-dimensional, buttery caramel shade couldn’t be easier to pull off, seriously looks good on everyone, plus, we love how natural it looks while you’re growing it out. It’s also as on-trend in October as it is in June. Basically, you can’t go wrong with this sweet look—check out our at-home balayage highlighting kits for inspiration, or ask your colorist for warm caramel highlights.
