Warm Hair Colors for Late Summer


The lazy, hazy days of summer are soon coming to a close, but it’s not a bad thing. Most of us are about to trade in sandals for boots and crunch multicolored leaves under our feet instead of letting sand sift through our toes. Autumn is known as a season for change and a time for rich color. You may want to trade your current shade for something warmer and bolder when the air gets crisp, but not quite yet. Read on for some ways you can transition your hair color along with the seasons.

Dim the summer blonde


Maybe you brightened your locks to match the summer rays, or maybe your blonde turned itself up a notch in the sun. You can dim your highlights to a warmer tone or let them grow out a bit and go for a more ombre or balayage look. Your darker roots can enrich your overall color, as seen in the root shadow trend. Ask your stylist for suggestions on how to easily adjust your current highlights from summer to fall.

A brunette for all seasons


Fall is a great time to go back to your roots or to your original color if you’re a natural brunette. A low maintenance, natural hue is the perfect transition to the new season. Warm browns are a great fall color and require less frequent trips to your stylist. No matter where you end up on the color spectrum, brown is beautiful in autumn.

Right on red


Red is a classic go-to color for fall. You can go with one all-over color, or if you have blonde or caramel highlights, layer in some red for a more blended, autumn look. The best thing about red is that you can dial it up to bright and bold or only add in some light shading or accents. Just a little red can completely change the overall appearance of your hair.

Rainbow hair  


It is the season of Halloween, after all. While many of us are still working and learning from home, this may be the perfect time to take a walk on the wild side. Streaks of purple and blue can add a cool edge to your style, and if you really want to be bold you can color all your tresses in different vibrant colors.

Fall into change


Take this seasonal cue to try something different. Autumn colors are warm and inviting and fun to try. When you visit your stylist at the end of the summer, talk about the kind of update you want - whether you want to keep your current look with just a few fall tweaks or really go all out with a head full of vibrant strands. Better than a pumpkin latte or a new box of crayons, a new look is something you can enjoy well after the leaves change.
