Fall and ombré hair, our two favorite things.
What you’ll need
When it comes to fall, we are all about making changes. From our summer tanks to cozy sweaters, fall is also a season where we transition from summer highlights to seriously cool fall ombré hair. We know as soon as you step out of your salon with your fresh new fall ombré hair that you’ll want to show it off with new styles, too! We’ve collected our favorite ombré colors and styles of the season to give you all the inspiration you need. Read on to check out how you can rock fall ombré hair this fall
6 Fall Ombré Hair Styles We Love
1. Red Ombré
Style To Try: Romantic Side Twist
We love this bright red ombré for fall. A romantic side twist is a good hairstyle to choose when you are working with day old curls and want to distract from oily roots. Start by applying some of the Bed Head by TIGI Oh Bee Hive! Dry Shampoo to refresh your roots. This will add lots of volume and no one will know you’ve skipped a wash (or two!). Give yourself a deep-side part, and on the smaller side gather the front section of your hair behind your ear. Then, give your hair a few twists and make sure that it stays in place with a few pins.
2. Subtle Ombré
Style To Try: Big Curls
A subtle ombré is a great way to dip your toes into the ombré waters without going too far outside your comfort zone. To style this gorgeous look you will need a set of hot rollers. Prep and protect your hair with some of the TRESemmé Get Sleek Heat Protection Spray lightly misted all over. Roll one inch sections upwards and let the hot rollers completely cool down before taking them out. For extra volume, tease the middle and ends of your hair and voila! Big glamorous curls.
3. High Contrast Ombré
Style To Try: Victory Rolls
A dramatic color change deserves a bold, vintage hairstyle. We love victory rolls because they add instant cool factor to any style and they are surprisingly easy to do! The only skill you need to master to create a great victory roll is the pin curl. Once you’ve got that down, just create two large vertical pin curls placed on either side of your part. Secure on the bottom with a couple of bobby pins to keep things in place and set with some of the Dove Style+Care Extra Hold Hairspray.
4. Blue Ombré
Style To Try: Sleek Bob
When you’ve got a colorful ombré you love, you need to show it off in all it’s glory! A sleek bob haircut is a unique way to show off your ombré because there are no curls or waves to throw off the color-change line. You can achieve this style two different ways. First is to blow dry your hair using a large round brush which will create a soft bend. You could also achieve this style by using your straightening iron. Simply keep the straighteners flat on the hair until an inch or so from the ends, then turn under.
5. Dark Ombré
Style To Try: Long and Tousled
Darker ombré shades feel nice and cozy for fall and winter. If you’ve got gorgeously long hair, show off your ombré by wearing your hair down. To keep things a little more interesting, add in some texture. The quickest and easiest way to add a tousled effect is to use a sea salt spray. The Suave Professionals Texturizing Sea Salt Spray will add just the right amount of grit and wave to your hair.
6. Pink Ombré
Style To Try: Totally Tonal Waves
If you are going to change up your color to something bright, we say go big or go home. This gorgeous pink ombre shows so many different tones of pink, that it will always look fresh and interesting. To get loose waves we suggest using a curling iron on the lowest temperature setting and curling large sections for a few seconds at a time. This doesn’t let a ton of heat get through the hair so you’ll get relaxed waves.
