Cool Down Your Hair With These 5 Gorgeous Autumn Shades!

Autumn is one of the best times of the year. The leaves changes, new clothing styles fill the shelves, and everyone starts to get excited for the impending holiday season. What better time to change up your hair color than this season of change? There are a lot of beautiful fall colors to choose from, so we’ve narrowed down the list for you. Here are five perfectly autumnal shades that you should consider rocking over the next few months!

Toned-Down Brown Hair

If you’ve got fair skin, blue veins, and prefer silver jewelry, you likely have a cool skin tone. Choosing a cooler brown for your fall hair color is the perfect way to compliment cool, fair skin. This lighter, less intense brown shade can still cover up gray hairs (if you’re concerned about that) and will give you a softer brunette look that’s perfect for the crisper nights ahead.

Ashy Blonde Hair

Looking for a blonde that’s just a tad edgier than a warm golden or classic platinum? An ashy blonde color is ideal for those with warm skin tones who want to do something a little different! Ashy blonde hair is achieved by adding a hint of gray on top of the blonde color. This beautiful trend dabbles in the silver/grey/ashy trends of the last few years without going full-on silver.

Maple Hair

Sharing its name with fallen leaves and a sweet, delicious pancake topping, maple hair is the ultimate fall hair color. This shade combines orange and violet tones with dark hair, creating a striking, rich color. It’s a great color option if you’re looking to add dimension to your ‘do. Maple hair looks beautiful on darker, warmer skin tones and will work best on brunettes.

Wine Colored Hair

Burgundy, maroon, and other wine-adjacent shades are autumn staples year after year. If you love these types of shades in a sweater, scarf, or lipstick, why not try one out on your hair? These red shades scream autumn. They also look stunning on almost every skin color because they mix blue and red to create a bold violet undertone.

Honey Hair

Get ready to look like you just came back from the beach even though it’s September. A honey blonde isn’t too cool or too warm– it’s just right. Honey’s gentle golden color does a great job of warming up your complexion, which can prevent the dreaded wash-out if you have pale skin. However, we love this color because it looks incredible on all skin tones, whether you’re fair, olive-skinned, dark, or somewhere in the middle!
