Perhaps you went light brown or blonde for the summer, and you are looking for a change this fall. Well, here are five hair color trends that are worth considering.
If you want to go darker but still have a color that pops, why not go red? The color can vary from scarlet to brick, and it looks really amazing on skin with cool undertones. Red is a high-maintenance color in terms of upkeep but may be well worth it. (Check out this previous article on maintaining shine and vibrancy.)
For a natural-looking alternative to red, go auburn instead. This reddish-brown color is the true definition of fall and the shades of deciduous trees during this season. It works really well on skin with warm undertones.
3. Deep brown
Switch your color to deep brown if you want to go even darker but not quite black. This color is very natural, versatile, and complements our complexions very well. The dyeing process is also less harsh than going auburn or red.
Sombré is a subtle take on the dramatic ombré technique. Rather than severe demarcations between two drastic colors, it is a softer look with more gradual fades and depth. Sombré will work well with any undertone and tends to look better with time.
Finally, there is what I call the “medley” (a mix of at least three colors), which can add dimension to your hair. Not to be confused with sombré, which transitions in color from root to tip, the medley can vary from strand to strand almost haphazardly. Additionally, the arrangement of color can be subtle or severe.
