Hair Color For Autumn
Hair colors that give you an autumn glow
There’s nothing quite like that first whiff of crisp autumn air each year to remind you of the magic of fall — well, maybe nothing except a fresh new hair color that captures the warmth and richness of the season’s fiery hues! As you anticipate months decorated with vibrant fallen leaves, golden afternoons, bright orange pumpkins and juicy Macintosh apples, it’s easy to get a sense for the chromatic theme in question. Autumn is dominated by deep, warm tones, and luckily, they’re just perfect for inspiring stunning fall hair colors. Pick your favorite shade, and unleash your inner autumn glow with a gorgeous new hair color this season.
Despite what you may think, there’s no single autumn-appropriate hair color. While most people automatically think of reds when imagining fall shades, warmth is the key. You want to reflect the seasonal tones and go for shades that include hints of gold, auburn, and copper. While rich reds are certainly striking, you can turn just as many heads with the right shade of rich golden honey or warm chestnut. Play around with the colors, and allow the landscape to inspire you. How about a luxurious mahogany or a subtle, light golden brown that glimmers in the autumn sunset?
Keep in mind that it’s important to think of your skin tone when selecting your autumn-inspired hair dye. You can consult with your hair stylist to determine your best color and go from there. A good stylist will be upfront and honest about what color will work with your skin tone and what won’t. If you want a fiery red but may not think it will work on you, ask your hair stylist. They may suggest a different hue of red or suggest adding red highlights instead.
Don’t feel the need to stick to an all-over coloring job either. In fact, if you employ a special effect when coloring your hair you can create added depth and dimension, which will further draw out the beauty of your natural skin tone and facial features. There’s nothing that says fall like the outdoorsy, healthy look of grown-out highlights that make it seem as if you spent your summer swimming and surfing in the ocean or driving around in a convertible with the top down. Of course, your hair stylist can give you that easy look by adding the somber style or a tasteful little balayage.
