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…

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!

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

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.

Editor’s tip: Delivering healthy shine while protecting coloured hair, Love Beauty and Planet’s Blooming Colour Shampoo and Conditioner duo is a must-have for your shower cabinet.

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.

Seen here on Sarah Hyland, this chocolate cinnamon blend combines classic chocolate brown with red tones, for a look that’s traditional yet completely current, too. Credit: @sarahhyland
