Let's talk locks: Fall into a new hue

by: Ashley Pawelczyk

In our last blog, we showed you how to pick the perfect cut to complement your face. Today is all about new hues, and spicing up your look with some fall tones can be (almost) effortless.

Whether you're a bangin' blonde bombshell or a ritualistic redhead, we've got you covered with our favorite picks for semi, demi and permanent hair color for the season.

The Rose Gold Effect: Metallic hues are making a comeback, but don't mistake that for old-fashioned. These modern metallics bring a very posh, polished look to your everyday color. Natural redheads will love this low-maintenance look. Achieving this subtle, sexy look takes no more than a few pops of balayage and a demi-permanent gloss to blend this mix of gold and copper hues.


Wheat Fix: We finally have an answer for those blondies who aren't totally over the whole platinum hair thing. This wheat-inspired trend is a beautiful alternative for anyone who doesn't want to commit to being high maintenance. It’s a buttery, brighter take on dark blonde, and accentuating this color is as easy as changing your toner and adding a few lowlights for dimension.


Rainbow Bright: The ombre is definitely a trend that's staying around for a while, and whether you're all-over blonde or you're already rocking the dual-tone locks, rainbow dip-dye is a fun way to incorporate funky pastels or vibrant metallic color. Go for a multi-tone glow or an all-over hue like the queen of dip-dye herself, Demi Lovato.


Beautifully Brunette: Don't be bummed out, brunettes! Sometimes, we can be mistaken for boring, but the Duchess of Cambridge has made being a natural brunette hotter than ever, as more women embrace their natural brown hair color and pop it up a notch with rich, chestnut shades and caramel colors.
