Fall tends to bring about some of the best hair colors due to its rich, elegant, and natural hues. It’s easy to find a color that will work for your hair and skin tone with a fall pallette. Naturally curly and wavy hair have the added benefit of being able to soak up color a little more easier than straight hair. And their texture serves as the perfect platform for showcasing dimension and drama! This fall, these are the hair color trends you'll be seeing all over your Instagram and Pinterest feeds.

Bronde

We know the name sounds silly, but we're here to report the trends and this bronde trend isn't going anywhere this fall. It's on the lips of stylists and celebrities and the translation is a soft mix of brunette and blonde. Regardless of the name, the color effect is a perfect transition from summer highlights into darker fall hues.

Color Blocked Roots

The color blocked roots trend can be seen in the drastic, darkened roots paired with a high shine color on the length. The vibrant pink and purple above is one version, but you can also achieve the look with more natural colors like black and blonde or dark brown and beachy brunette.

Single Process Brunette

Taking roots and length all together into one uniformly, stylish blackish-brunette gives waves and curls a lot of depth and shows off their texture. Your hairstylist will know what you mean when you request a single process color.

Lived In Highlights

For those who don't always have a stylist touch-up in the budget or schedule; allow your color to grow out as low lights within your natural hue.

Burnt Auburn

If you have some natural red or auburn in your hair color, deepen the look with burnt auburn for something richer. This look adds dimension, especially for naturally darker curls.

Sand Art

Also called "candy dip dye" hair color, this uses summery bright pastels for more flair in the cooler seasons. We recommend you go to a stylist for this look because it will require bleaching and re-coloring the hair in strategically placed sections. If you'd like to try the look temporarily, there's always the easy at-home methods of using cream eyeshadow or liquid chalk.

Ready to color your hair?

If you are looking to change to a new shade or two for the 2015 fall season, start by considering these steps:

  1. Select shades you want to experiment with and have multiple reference photos ready to show your stylist. Visuals are best for color, as they give you and your stylist an easy place to start and communicate with one another about the look you'd like to achieve.

  2. Discuss your options with your stylist and find out which one--or two, or three--may be right for you this season. Consider adding high or low lights to your hair to avoid going too dark or too bright too soon.

  3. Ask your stylist about the upkeep for maintaining your new hue. Also, do not forget that you may need your roots touched up every 4-7 weeks, depending on your growth and the color(s) you have selected.

  4. Update your product arsenal with cleansers, conditioners, and styling products that are color-safe and healthy.
