Fall Hair Colors for the Prime Woman

With summer almost behind us, we start to see the changing colors of autumn with its tones of tangerine, reds, and warm browns that translate into fall hair colors for this season. They can be bold or muted colors marbled through to give the illusion of texture. What a joy to have these pretty shades to brighten the gloomy weather days. Take a read of what’s on-trend with fall hair colors.

If this sounds familiar to you, then you need a rescue mission for the hair! So let’s get your hair restored back to its former glory and discuss new fall hair colors that are perfect for Prime Women.

How to Get Your Hair Fall-Ready

Now for your new fall color to take evenly, we have to address the dryness first. The reason for this is, if we even out the porosity of the hair first, the color will absorb more evenly and last longer. I suggest a week or two of treatments while you are waiting for your hair appointment.

Paul Labrecque Repair System, $99

To get rid of dryness and repair your hair, one excellent choice is the Paul Labrecque Repair System ($99). This system uses egg and milk proteins along with the superpowers of lemongrass oil to give new life to hair that feels dry. Three or four good treatments should get you on the path of recovery.

Once the repair is done, it’s time to re-invent. What we are seeing in this year’s fall hair colors is many plays on color moving into a new form of Ombré where different shades of the same tone increase density to the hair ends. No more brown roots to pale blonde mid-lengths and ends that show little in the way of transition.

Fall Hair Colors for Blondes

Last season was all about cool and icy blondes. You will enjoy the return of these lustrous warm blondes with golden apricot and peach reflections. Exceptionally pretty if several different hues are mixed together, delivering a high and low light effect to the color.

Try a strawberry root that transitions to gold, then transitions to pale gold on the ends.

You can also opt for a rooted blonde Ombré look — it requires less maintenance and will save you some touch-up trips to the salon.

Fall Hair Colors for Brunettes

The big fall hair color trend for brunettes is chocolate. A favorite of mine is the mix of dark and milk chocolate shades together, others may name it shades of cinnamon or coffee. Either way, you can imagine how pretty it can be transformed to hair color. The highlights give the base color a great dimension and add a nice texture to what would normally be a bold flat color.

Where roots appear, try ebony and transition to chocolate, then chestnut, or try a fabulous mocha that transitions to auburn then gold.

The idea is subtle shading of a recurring theme. It is both beautiful and highly elegant. Remember, a single process means just that one color. Add life and dimension by incorporating at least three tones into your hair. Your hair will shine, and you will feel like a million bucks.

Plus, this subtle shading is easy to maintain. So, if you are unable to see your hairstylist in a timely manner you will not look bad in the meantime. The grow-out will look natural and stylish.

Fall Hair Colors for Auburn Hair

You are already on-trend ladies, but nothing stops you adding some golden or warmer red tones through your auburn locks to give more interest.

Keep in mind that these colors are all quite technical and should be executed by a good color technician. Do not attempt to do this coloring yourself, especially if you have white hair, as warm color pigments can be quite bright on white hair, and we don’t want that!

Care For Your Color At Home

Your color will be an investment, so preserve it as long as you can with great home care.
Heated tools, for example, will fade warm tones quickly and lead to damage. Make sure to use a good conditioning mask to keep your hair soft and healthy.

So, go ahead and treat yourself to a fresh look this fall! And while you’re at it, reward your locks with the best shampoos and conditioners
