It’s not just leaves that change their colours in fall—you can too!
Autumn is a perfect time to embrace a new colour trend, following the shades of the fall foliage or blazing your own trail to set the style. This is when the pastels of spring and the beachy tones of summer are replaced by the earthy hues of autumn.
Think of cozy colours like brown and beige or follow the lead of Mother Nature with the crimson, yellow, and orange you see all around. Here are some of the fall trends that will illuminate and inspire you.
These are colours derived from gemstones—think sapphire blue, ruby red and emerald green—with a high level of colour saturation that make them stand out. These hues are dynamic and eye-catching. In a hair colour, a jewel tone is bold and edgy. You can even combine colours in your locks. If you don’t want to make a statement with your hair colour, choose a sweater or scarf to achieve the same bold effect.
This is a standout autumn shade, and if you opt for copper hair, you’ll stand out too—in a good way! This warm hue blends notes of red, brown, bronze and orange. Think of a shiny new penny or a mug for a moscow mule: a stunning shade with brilliant shine.
This more traditional colour palette includes the warm shades of brown, green, gray, and beige, but can also incorporate muted tones of orange, red, and yellow. For hair colour, red clay is an autumn trend that follows the changing leaves around us. Red clay hair color is deeper than a regular shade of red, giving your hair more life and providing an easier transition than moving to a bright red. It’s also adaptable to a wide range of skin tones and eye colours.
If summer was all pink—thanks in large part to the blockbuster success of the Barbie movie—then autumn should make you see red. Like a maple tree saying goodbye to the dog days of summer, you too can blaze on the scene with brilliant red hair, a new top, or a red purse. It has been said that no other colour has the “extraordinary appeal” of red, chock-full of drama, but still classic.
