We all know that choosing a summer hair hue is easy; you either go lighter or for a bright, festival-worthy colour. But when the season starts to wane and become cooler, finding fall hair colours that are on trend can seem tricky (sigh!).
However, we’ve noticed a few of our favourite A-list Instagrammers debuting beautiful autumnal hues recently and they’ve officially got us feeling excited about hair colours for fall again!
So, if you’re lost for inspiration on how to change up your mane for autumn, let’s see if any of these seasonal celebrity colours can tempt you…
11 fall hair colour ideas to try at the salon this season
Zoella’s cinnamon bob
Flittering back and forth between blonde and brunette hues, Zoella is lucky enough to pull off a multitude of shades but it’s her recent colour transformation that we’re crushing over for fall hair colour ideas.
Style tip: Adding soft waves to your hair is a great way to show off your new hue as the light will bounce off your strands. It’s the perfect trick for capturing your colour in selfies!
Leigh-Anne Pinnock’s green box braids
Yasss! We are loving Leigh-Anne Pinnock’s vivid green box braids she’s rocking right now. While vibrant green hues might bring up memories of summer festivals, we think Leigh-Anne’s muted tone is ideal for the autumn months. Credit: @leighannepinnock
Julia Roberts’ pink highlights
When the misery of grey skies and dark evenings start to become the norm, this is the hair colour you need to put a spring back into your step.
Debby Ryan’s auburn colour
Would it be a fall without at least one celebrity transforming their locks into the most gorgeous auburn hair colour? No, we think not. Taking the lead this year is Insatiable actress Debby Ryan. After trying various shades of blonde over the years, Debby has settled on this glossy rich auburn shade and we think it complements her skin tone perfectly.
Bella Hadid’s chocolate brown update
Dark-haired beauty Bella Hadid went for such a subtle colour tweak that it almost went unnoticed. Switching from her deep dark shade to a softer chocolate brown has made all the difference to her appearance. Credit: @jennaperryhair
Rose Byrne’s bleach lob
Waving goodbye to her brunette balayage, actress Rose Byrne surprised us all when she revealed this bleach blonde hue in time for fall. The surprise didn’t stop there, by adding dark grown out Nirvana roots, Rose gave her look a winter feel.
JoJo’s blonde ombre
Sure, it’s usual to go lighter in summer and darker for fall, but why would you want to stick to the norm? Leave (Get Out) singer JoJo is proof that you can totally go blonde for autumn with this sandy blonde ombre.
By maintaining a darker colour at the roots, it gives the look a more lived-in, grown-out vibe rather than a fresh, sunkissed blonde. This ensures that the look is both bright and warming, as well as making sure that it’ll transition with ease! Credit: @iamjojo
Ashley Tisdale’s medium golden brown
Going Brunette might seem like one of the more obvious fall hair colour trends, but as Ashley Tisdale shows, playing around with different undertones can have a transformative effect on the whole vibe of your colour.
Warm, golden tones like Ashley’s are brilliant at warming up your features and stopping you from looking washed out – something especially important now that the sun is a rarity and we’re all a shade paler! Credit: @ashleytisdale
Editor’s tip: If Ashley’s colour is up your street, we suggest using a colour mask every so often to ensure your brunette stays looking fresh between dye jobs.
The TIGI Catwalk Fashionista Brunette Mask is perfect for this, as it’s formulated especially for warm-toned brunettes and helps to boost your colour’s vibrancy if it starts to look dull.
Bella Thorne’s strawberry blonde
If ever there was a perfect time of year to go red, autumn is it, wouldn’t you agree? If you’re already a blonde, a subtler strawberry blonde shade (like Bella Thorne‘s) won’t be too difficult to achieve and won’t require as much upkeep as a more vivid Jessica Rabbit cherry hue.

Lucy Hale’s ultra-dark balayage
Lucy Hale‘s hair is such a dark brunette at the moment that it’s almost verging on black. However, by adding a touch of balayage to her ends and around her face, it lightens up the look and adds dimension, giving her chic bob more shape. Credit: @lucyhale
Madelaine Petsch’s classic red
Riverdale‘s Madelaine Petsch is our redhead crush of the moment, so if you’ve been contemplating braving ginger, look no further than her Insta feed for inspiration.
Best suited to those with ultra fair, English rose complexions, what better way to celebrate autumn than with a colour inspired by the falling leaves themselves? Credit: @madelame
Editor’s tip: Such a stunning colour calls for some extra TLC and the TIGI S Factor True Lasting Colour Oil is the perfect does-it-all treatment for coloured hair. A heat protectant, anti-frizz and shine booster all in one, it’ll become your new handbag essential.
Sarah Hyland’s chocolate cinnamon
If you’re the kind of girl who can’t decide between a hot chocolate or a cinnamon latte at Starbucks, this look’s for you.
