2. Black to Wine

In the market for going from black hair to something totally new, but still you? Opt for a burgandy hair hue that suits your skin tone, as oftentimes going from black to blonde or a light brown color can be too drastic. Burgundy hues like crimson, wine or currant are all great options for the fall season.

Turn your chic hairstyle into a vibrant look with some maroon. Ask your stylist for a single shade that stands out but also brings out your features. For a bolder look, pair up your new hair color with a fresh short haircut that works for the fall and winter seasons.
