Go Bold With One of These Fall Hair Colors

After Labor Day is over, most of us are in full “fall mode,” welcoming (or not) the thought of pumpkin spice everything, looking forward to cozy sweaters and boots weather, finding our favorite chili recipes and of course, deciding how to change our hair for the new season.

It’s almost fall, and a fantastic time to change your hair color. So, while you’re thinking about all of your other fall favorites, take a moment to consider your fall hair color. We suggest choosing a bold color to show off your personality or simply to do something different than what you’re used to.

Read on for our favorite bold hair color ideas to welcome fall.

Spiced copper and shades of red

With fall comes the changing of the leaves to shades of orange, red, yellow and brown. Why not take your hair color hints from Mother Nature herself and opt for a gorgeous spiced copper hue? A little bit of fiery red and a touch of pumpkin spice, this bold hair color choice will turn heads and be the star of your fall selfies.

If the orange-copper hue is too intimidating of a change, try a deeper shade of red like an auburn or a bold, bright red (see top photo above). With so many shades of red and orange found naturally in the fall, you’re sure to find one that best suits your mood when you visit your favorite FS stylist. Ask for suggestions from the expert, and if anything, you can always opt for more subtle balayage application instead of an all-over color.

Perfect plums and purples

Maybe you’re dreaming of a bold hair color shade for fall, but not as bright as red or copper? Now is the perfect time to choose plum or violet. Deep, purple shades are as bold as they are beautiful.

Your stylist can blend plum shades into brunette hair as delicately or as dramatically as you like. If the thought of purple hair has never crossed your mind, you just may be pleasantly surprised after choosing a violet hue.

Ready for a brighter, more vibrant purple? What better time than now to go even bolder than what you’ve tried before? Your FS stylist is here to help your hair goals become a reality.

Bold blues and greens

Another great bold hair color to try this fall is deep blue. Ranging from midnight blue to navy to brighter cobalt and sapphire, a multitude of hues are at your disposal! Opt for super dark blue-black or a lighter shade like sky blue to celebrate the changing of the seasons. Whether you want to be reminded of the ocean, a cloudless sunny sky or your favorite indigo jeans when you look in the mirror, blue is a great option!

You can also choose to combine multiple shades to make your fall color truly unique. Pair royal blue with an ultra bright teal, turquoise or green for your own version of mermaid hair. Ask your FS stylist about which color combinations would work well with your style and personality. All we suggest is, don’t be afraid to try a bold color! You just may love it and never go back to traditional hair colors again!
