Fall Hair Colors Look More Dimensional
Hair Colorists Guide to Fall Hair Colors
You don’t need to know who’s in which movie or plays Which TV role or sings which song. You just need to know what they all look like. Colorists across the country are scouting celebrity trends to make sure they’re on top of what clients will want,” observes MODERN SALON Beauty and Fashion Director Maggi Mulhern. For fall, one thing seems certain: hair color will be part of every “what’s next” look. Here is what she recommends for her stylist readers:
- BRONDING ~~ Golden highlights kissing a light brown base against an October late-afternoon sun? Can’t beat it! Introduce this hybrid look to both your brunettes and your blondes as an update for fall.
- OMBRE ~~ As soon as you think it’s over some celebrity shows up rocking the ombré all over again. This look has legs, especially since it’s so forgiving for clients who need to stretch appointments. Fall’s deeper shades suggest a gradation of chocolate through caramel, and there’s also been buzz about spilling the ombré look onto a redder palette. Keep your eye peeled for a burst of rust-to-fire, or wear it yourself to inspire clients.
- BALIAGE ~~ The twist on ombré is that it’s reignited the reverse: light on top, dark on the bottom. The advantage for long-haired clients is that the lighter area brightens the face.
- DIP-DYE, TIE-DYE, BRIGHTS AND PASTELS ~~ The fun departure from natural shades is steadily going mainstream as clients seek ways to look edgier.
Fall hair colors always follow the natural flow of the season. Just as your wardrobe and make-up colors become deeper, fall hair colors also deepen to compliment these changes. Summers sun bleached layered hairstyles need refreshing and that’s done by toning down blondes and richening up brunettes and redheads.
Before committing to a new fall hair color be sure to read up on “What hair color is best for my skin tone” then bring some pictures of hair colors you like to your appointment to discuss with your hairdresser. Sharing pictures are really the only way you and your hairdresser will know if you are both on the same page!
Also, you may be able to stretch your dollars by wearing high lights closer to your own natural hair color and going with a hairstyle that grows out easily.

The Ombre hair color trend is still strong after it started showing up in Hollywood this spring and it will be big for fall hair colors as well! The Ombre effect is high lighted strands from mid-shaft down. These high lights are easy to maintain as long as the high lights are 1 to 2 shades lighter than your base hair color.
