This color is good for dipping your toes into the pumpkin spice hair trend. It’s in that sweet spot between brown and red that’s really flattering on all skin tones. Fall is filled with warm tones and this auburn hair color is no exception. Keeping this auburn shade light is a chic change of pace from the usual darker auburn colors.

2. Bright Teal Blue

Contrast with the warm colors of the season by going blue. This bright teal blue gives denim vibes and is edgy without going too far. Before permanently dying your locks a blue shade, keep in mind that blue dyes tend to be particularly hard to wash out. This could be a good or a bad thing for you depending on how often you like to change up your hair color look!

3. Red Rooted Hair

Add a pop of red hair color to your fall style.

If a subtle change is more up your alley, update your already red locks with some rooted hair. Keeping the color change slight makes a big difference in the overall effect of your hair without altering too much. Going lighter at the roots is a good choice for those who don’t want to spend a lot of time in the salon.

4. Honey Blond

This honey blonde hue is on-trend and flattering!

If you went for a cool, ashy, blond this summer, update to a warmer tone. Honey blond colors are gentle and feel cozy for fall. To keep your blond from looking too beach babe for the season, make sure your hair is toned to a true honey shade, and pick up some purple shampoo. You don’t want any yellow brassiness to ruin your honey-blond hair, after all.

5. Go Green

Going for a bold hair color choice doesn’t have to be an alternative look. With a sleek bob this dark green looks chic. Keeping your green on the darker end (as opposed to a bright, grassy green) keeps this fun shade seasonal.

6. Dark Chocolate Brown

Go dark.

Going darker in the cooler months just feels right and this dark chocolatey color is perfect for the season of trick or treating. If you are a natural brunette, going a few shades darker can really update your look. Glossy dark locks are a staple for fall hair colors.
