With the change of season comes a change of hair color! Before you swap your bikinis, large brim hats, and summer dresses for comfy sweaters, and boots, it's time to think about a new hair color to match the season. Whether you want to go all-out or take it easy with simple highlights, your hair is your best accessory - better than a pair of Uggs! So, if you want to be a ray of sunshine this fall, here are some great hair color ideas that you should try out!
Whether pastel pinks, purples, baby blues or a combination of two or more, cotton candy hair has been the highlight of 2017. If you've been wanting to get this hair color, then fall would be a great time for you to actually do it. It's bold, cute, and a huge contrast to the earthy and monochromatic colors that you always see during this season. According to Redken Global Color creative Director Josh Wood "I see the softer more pastel tones getting stronger and more bold". Even celebrities like Lady Gaga, and Orange is the New Black star Taryn Manning are all sporting cotton candy hair.
However, the sad part about getting this hair is that you will have to use bleach or lightener which can damage the strands. To reverse this effect, there are several hair products and special shampoos that you can use to bring back your hair's natural vitality. Olaplex is known for having the best hair products for colored or bleached hair.
Channel your inner ice queen with a silver/ grey hair color that would surely strike your ex's cold heart. Like cotton candy hair now would be a great time to sport this hair color to match the cold season. Don't worry too much about looking old; silver/ grey hair is in and it's here to stay! Celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Ellie Goulding, and Pink are all rocking this hair color like queens!
Sadly, this hair color doesn't come without a price. Like all unnatural hair colors, your hair needs to have as less pigment as possible ergo several sessions of bleaching and lightening which causes breakage and dryness. Aveda has a great selection of hair treatments that can help you combat dry and frizzy hair as a result of bleaching. You can check them out below.
Icy Blonde with Dark Roots
Ice queen but without the commitment, so you get dark roots instead! But, enough gloating, this look is actually in this fall and you should give it a try. This hair color just screams an IDGAF attitude which usually comes around during the fall (we don't know why). Whether you're too lazy to get a touch-up or deliberately do it for the sake of style, this is a good hair color that you must try. Celebrities like Kendall Jenner, Cara Delevigne, Kirsten Stewart, and Miley Cyrus are all making this look all the more adorable.
If you're pretty much satisfied with your chocolate browns or dark balayage, maybe some caramel highlights would revamp your look. Style icons like Selena Gomez, Jennifer Lopez, and Kate Beckinsale are now part of the caramel highlight fam. Caramel highlights add a little bit of warmth and can add depth and dimension to your look - it's a true work of art!
Caramel highlights are generally low maintenance which is why it is a preferred hair color this season. However, don't forget to treat it to a spa day with nourishing treatments such as hair masks, and serums for stronger and more natural locks.
If you've been blonde or have been sporting crazy hair colors all-year round, this fall would be the perfect season to go jet black or raven black. It fits the monochromatic and earthy vibes of fall plus, it's super low maintenance! Even celebrities like Lucy Hale, Adriana Lima, Joan Smalls, and Rihanna have found a new appreciation for jet black hair.
If you're blonde, however, you would need to dye your hair black. Unlike complicated cotton candy colors, dying your hair black is easy and you can even DIY it if you can. When it comes to hair dyes and hair colors, L'Oreal has some of the best selections to choose from. Grab your own fall colors below.
