The 30 Best Hair Colors for Fall 2016
 

The change of seasons is always a great time to switch up your hair color game as well. Opt for a darker shade for your strands or warm them up with a fun red hue. You can really shake things up by choosing a bright poppy color of red or copper. Blonde trends are going lighter and bolder, too. Everyone should have something to smile about at the salon this Fall with one of these amazing hair colors for fall!

#1 Captivating Copper

This multidimensional redhead by Mouton’s Salon is heavy in copper with subtle cinnamon undertones.

Gorgeous Red Hair Color for Fall

Best Skin Tone and Hair Type:

Medium to fairer skin tones will be complemented best by this light and spicy color. Natural levels of dark to light brown will easily achieve this color.

Tip:

Healthy hair holds onto color and hair dyes longer. Keep your strands hydrated and moisturized by using good products and minimizing heat and tool damage.

#2 Paint by Number

Flecks of vibrant red and orange are splashed throughout a deep merlot base in this amazing look by Hair Benders.

Red Hair Color with Highlights for Fall

Best Skin Tone and Hair Type:

These bright red colors are cut to a deeper base which makes it more wearable by more skin types. Dark to lighter skin tones can definitely dry out this color. Natural colors that fall in the middle of the scale (medium brown) are good candidates for this color.

Tip:

Using a shampoo and/or conditioner that has red pigment in it is a great idea. It will deposit some dyes onto strands in between color appointments and keep the color vibrant and lasting longer.

#3 Color Blocking

This edgy haircut by Hair Benders boasts a golden beige mohawk that is sharply contrasted by a cool, dark brown shade on the sides.

Brown and Blonde Fall Hair Color

Best Skin Tone and Hair Type:

Darker or olive skin tones can handle the duality of warmth in this look. Natural medium brown shades that can hold up to a strong bleach will work for this look.

Using a shine spray is a great way to chase dullness away that can often happen to highly bleached strands.

#4 Ombre on Fire

This goddess-like hairstyle by Goertz Hair is red hot at the roots and fades softly down into whispers of copper.

Bright Red Hair Color for Fall

Best Skin Tone and Hair Type:

Fair skin types are best for coppery red hues. Medium to lighter shades of natural brunettes, blondes, or redheads are the best starting hair types for this result.

Tip:

Make sure the tips stay vibrant. Even though you want an ombre effect, you want it to look intentional and not as though the ends have simply faded away from washing.

#5 Fringe Benefits

This light caramel brown color by Douglas Carroll Salon is given a fun surprise around the face with a deep red that peeks out from beneath.

Brown Hair Color with Red Highlights

Best Skin Tone and Hair Type:

Bright Blonde Hair Color for Fall

Best Skin Tone and Hair Type:

Blonde hair tends to look best on lighter skin tones. This warmer shade allows it to work well with warmer hues of pigment. Medium to light colored blondes will be able to get the right amount of lift for this look.

Tip:

It’s not always necessary to match your brow color to your hair color, but lightening them up a shade or two can help melt the two colors closer together and create a more harmonious look.

#8 Candy Apple

Bold, poppy colors are really on trend for fall. Don’t be afraid to turn up the volume and blast some red tones like this look by Candy Shaw.

Deep Red Hair Color for Fall

Best Skin Tone and Hair Type:

Bold colors like this are more about your attitude and less about skin tone. Virgin hair of any color should be able to dyed to reach this shade.

Highlights take more time to apply, but the dimension you get is totally worth it.

#10 Metallic Glam

White Blonde Hair Color for Fall

Best Skin Tone and Hair Type:

Cooler skin tones on hair that is two shades below what is shown or lighter will work best to achieve this look.

Eye color is a great way to determine what shades of hair color to select. Cooler blues, greens, and violets are great with neutral to ashy hues, while warm browns and golden eyes are great with warmer gold hues of hair.

#11 Simply Silver

Cool, ashy tones from roots to tips create a totally rock star look in the design by L Salon & Color Group.

Platinum Blonde Hair Color

Best Skin Tone and Hair Type:

Light skin tones with naturally pale colored, ashy hues to start with are best.

Tip:

Using a purple tinted shampoo and conditioner can really help keep your strands silvery and cool in between color appointments.

#12 Cool Cascades

Ombre hairstyles are still on trend going into fall. This gorgeous blonde by Candy Shaw is a more subtle version of the “dark to light” effect, but the statement is breathtaking.

Blonde Hair Color with Subtle Highlights

Best Skin Tone and Hair Type:

Medium to pale skin tones on naturally ashy hair is best.

Tip:

If you’re usually a light blonde, an ombre is a great way to change up your look and go a little darker for fall.

#13 Warm Me Up

Natural colored roots are highlighted with vanilla strands in this design by Mouton’s Salon. The warm blonde helps to break up the ashy base color and give it some interest.

Blonde Hair Color for Fall

Best Skin Tone and Hair Type:

Pale skin with cool undertones and hair that is naturally light and ashy are a must for this look.

Tip:

A heavy highlight is a great way to change your overall color without committing to an overall color. Keeping your natural color as a base will help the roots grow in softer and less dramatically.

#14 The Stand Out

This red orange hair color by L Salon & Color Group is not for the faint of heart. The striking red base, with a hint of orange at the tips, makes this an ultra dramatic color.

Beautiful Red Hair Color for Fall

Best Skin Tone and Hair Type:

Warmer skin tones of all shades can wear this strong color. Virgin hair is best to start with, but if you have medium brown or blonde colored hair you can morph into this look pretty easily.

Tip:

Orange tones can fade and look flat really quickly. Make sure you keep up with regular color appointments. Consider adding a color glaze in between root touch ups to really keep the color looking vibrant and alive.

#15 Ultra Suede

Don’t you just love this platinum beige colored blonde by Mouton’s Salon? The color is perfect and will make blondes everywhere stand up and rejoice!

Light Blonde Fall Hair Color

Best Skin Tone and Hair Type:

Light skin tones with cooler undertones can work with this look. Naturally dark to light blondes or medium brown hues that can stand lots of bleach can try to achieve this look.

Tip:

What is a toner? For blondes, it is usually a color that is deposited on strands to balance and get rid of unwanted warm, yellowy tones. Think of it like a stain on raw, unfinished wood — it helps to make the overall color more polished.

#16 Caramel Drizzle

This awesome hairdo by Candy Shaw was created by using asymmetrical color blocking. A deep reddish, chocolate brown is offset by a lighter brown with coppery undertones.

Two Toned Brown Hair Color for Fall

Pretty Red Hair Color for Fall

Best Skin Tone and Hair Type:

All skin tones and hair types can try this pretty red shade.

Tip:

The average person’s hair grows about a half-inch a month. Your roots will really show with such a bright red color, so color strands regularly.

#18 Pure Platinum

This pale blonde hair by Identity Hair Salons & Medical Spas is almost white and void of all color. The platinum shade is a real head turner.

Bright Blonde Fall Hair Color

Best Skin Tone and Hair Type:

Light skin tones with cooler undertones can work with this look. Naturally dark to light blondes or medium brown hues that can stand lots of bleach can try to achieve this look.

Tip:

Make sure you use products to restore lost nutrients. Bleach can really take a toll on your hair, so give it the TLC it deserves after your color appointment.

#19 Cranberry Wine

This is a must-have color for fall! Deep red hues lighten up towards the ends in this fabulous, multi-dimensional look by L Salon & Color Group. Gorgeous!

#20 Sweet Sophistication

A rich orange copper color is awesome to try this fall. This pure and brilliant papaya color by Candy Shaw is dazzling from roots to ends.

Light Red Fall Hair Color

Best Skin Tone and Hair Type:

Lighter skin tones would look pretty in this bright coppery hue. Virgin hair or hair that is a lighter brown or darker blonde would be good candidates for this color choice.

Tip:

If you are making a drastic change from one color to another, make sure you change up your makeup routine, too. You may need new brow, cheek, and lip colors to complement your new look.

#21 Purple Passion

Adding some eggplant tones to darker hair like this look from Paul Kenneth Salon is a great idea! It will give you some depth, interest, and will definitely be a conversation starter.

Dark Brown Hair Color with Purple Highlights

Best Skin Tone and Hair Type:

Dark or olive skin tones are best for this rich hair color. Dark brown hair or lighter can pull this off easily.

Tip:

Even though the look is soft and blended, make sure the chunks of purple are thick enough so they pop after color is applied.

#22 Pop of Scarlet

The base color in this design by Paul Kenneth Salon is a dark reddish brown. The bright pop of red around the face helps break it up and keep it interesting.

Deep Cherry Hair Color for Fall

Best Skin Tone and Hair Type:

Dark to medium skin tones can pull off this darker, warm color combo. It would be easiest to achieve on virgin hair of a dark or medium brown shade.

Tip:

Part your hair on the opposite side when styling to create an entirely different color result!

#23 Blonde Dazzler

This all over blonde shade by Xena Parsons is shiny from roots to tips. It is a solid beige color with hints of gold where the light hits.

Warm Blonde Hair Color

Best Skin Tone and Hair Type:

Lighter skin tones with warm or cool pigment can wear this look. Medium to light shades of natural hair should be easily lifted to this shade.

Tip:

Don’t overuse finishing products. Too much sticky hairspray can dull shine and make hair look damaged and crunchy, even when it’s not.

#24 Natural Nuance

This pretty copper shade by Xena Parsons has a heavy dose of gold thrown into it to keep from looking too poppy and unreal. Fun pastel pieces of green are thrown in for fun!

Reddish Brown Fall Hair Color

Best Skin Tone and Hair Type:

Warmer skin tones of all shades would look pretty with this natural-looking, coppery hue. Virgin hair or hair that is a lighter brown or darker blonde would be ideal candidates for this color choice.

Tip:

Always see a professional for hair color. Copper tones that are too orange can look fake! See an expert who knows how to blend in brown tones to add balance.

#25 Simply Beige

This gorgeous pale blonde by Paul Kenneth Salon is super light, but still has pretty beige undertones that keep it wearable.

Golden Blonde Hair Color for Fall

Best Skin Tone and Hair Type:

Light skin tones with cooler undertones can work with this look. Naturally dark to light blondes or medium brown hues that can stand lots of bleach can try to achieve this look.

Tip:

Hair needs to be lifted (bleached) to a very high level to achieve this look. Make sure you discuss realistic outcomes with your stylist such as cutting some length off, investing in restorative products, or in-salon treatments to keep your hair looking its best.

#26 Smoldering Strands

This bright, apple red color by Candy Shaw is super bright and striking. Color is kept vibrant from roots to tips with subtle undertones of copper.

Crimson Hair Color for Fall

Best Skin Tone and Hair Type:

All skin tones and hair types can go for it with this bold color.

Tip:

Copper, orange, strawberry, magenta, scarlet, etc. There are so many ways to describe certain shades and every word might have a different meaning to different people. Make sure you bring in a photo of what you’re aiming for to avoid any vocabulary confusion.

#27 Pastel Princess

Stunning shades of fuchsia, peach, and pink swirl together in this marvelous hairdo by Douglas Carroll Salon.

Funky Red Fall Hair Color

Best Skin Tone and Hair Type:

This look would be great for all skin tones. Naturally lighter levels, medium browns to blondes, would work well. Black to dark brown hues would be very difficult to lift up to this pale color.

Tip:

Enjoy the ride! Unconventional hair colors like this fade fast and the tone changes quickly, too. Aim for a darker shade first so that you fade up to what you want and therefore help keep maintenance down a little bit.

#28 Modern Peacock

An all over red color is shattered on top with a forest green and cobalt blue in the stunning design by the artists at Douglas Carroll Salon.

Mahogany Hair Color with Teal Highlights

Best Skin Tone and Hair Type:

Darker skin tones are best for this unique hair color. Dark brown hair or lighter can pull this off.

If you’re not quite ready to take the plunge, try bright colored extensions to spice up your color for a more temporary look.

A warm brown shade is elevated with golden blonde flecks around the face in this design by L Salon & Color Group.

Light Brown Hair Color for Fall

Best Skin Tone and Hair Type:

This look would be great on all skin tones and hair types.

Tip:

Keep the blonde strands thick, but don’t date yourself by making them too chunky. You want it to stay looking soft and blended.

#30 Titanium Tendrils

Silvery beige strands are woven together beautifully in this wavy hairstyle by L Salon & Color Group. The tone has metallic-like quality that makes it really different than your average blonde.

Ash Blonde Hair Color for Fall

Best Skin Tone and Hair Type:

Fair skin tones with cool undertones are best. The lighter your hair is naturally, the better for creating this look.

Tip:

For a specialized tone like this, make sure you see a professional instead of trying it at home.

Embrace the red trend this fall or opt for a new tone of brown or blonde. Whatever you decide, fall is a perfect time to do something fun and different before the holidays hit!
