As autumn changes the colours of the foliage in our neighbourhood parks, we start to see fall reflected in our fashion, coffee and holidays. Autumn is a great time to change up a hairstyle and infuse some colour into our lives to brighten the darkening days. Heading into your local hair salon in Victoria BC and walking out with a vibrant purple bob may leave you longing for the days of summer for all the wrong reasons. This fall, pick a hair colour that you’ll love the whole season through.
What’s trending in hair colour this fall?
Subtle Colours & Subdued Pastels
Summer saw bright pink hair and vibrant bursts of rich colour. This autumn, try something a bit more subdued. Strawberry blonde instead of a cotton candy pink hair colour is the flavour for fall. When you think of non-natural colours, like purple and blue, pair them with a naturally-occurring hair colour or tone them down to a faded hint. Let the true vibrancy of the season be the changing colours of the leaves and give your hair colour a much-needed rest.
If you do want to change up the colour of your hair, try some themed colours. Give a warm cinnamon or caramel a try. If you want to make more of a statement and turn some heads, we love the look of pumpkin spice waves. If vibrant colour is a part of your personality, going bright orange can be a dream come true. But fair warning: be cautious going from subdued, natural colours to a full head of orange this fall. If you’re not used to bright hair colours, stick to the subdued pastels or subtle hints of colour first.
Dusty Blonde & Bronde
Bronde? Yes. This season, try the best of both and have brown meet blonde for a warm fall glow. The light catching effects of blonde can make a brown head of hair look like the sun’s shining on the darkest days of fall. Bronde is a colour you’ll see a lot of this autumn. The marriage of warm and cool tones here is the perfect hair colour for the season. Think of spiced apple cider and hot cocoa.
What’s Happening with Roots?
Balayage and dark roots are ideal for fall. Big scarves and long jackets pair perfectly with some shading around the crown fo your head. Summer’s all about sun-kissed and sun-dazed looks. Autumn’s all about warm drinks and time spent cozy by the fire with friends. Darker roots are perfect for this season. What’s great about balayage or dark roots is that for many, it comes naturally after the highlights of summer.
Rich Browns & Bold Blacks
Nothing says autumn like a rich, dark brown hair colour or a bold black. As the leaves turn brown and we all start wearing our favourite flannel, a healthy head of hair in a rich, dark tone is a natural choice.
