5 Trendy Hair Color Ideas for Fall 5 Trendy Hair Color Ideas for Fall 5 Trendy Hair Color Ideas for Fall

Fall is one of the most beautiful times of year, largely thanks to the resplendent range of colors on display in parks and forests across the country. If you want to be part of this colorful celebration, then why not opt for an autumnal hair color? Whether you are a natural blonde, a fiery redhead, a black-haired beauty, or a brunette, you can turn heads with a new hair color this season. Here are five hair color ideas that are set to be trending all fall.

FALL HAIR COLOR #1: SILVER/GRAY HAIR

Silver hair isn't just for those in their sixties and seventies! Women of all ages are going gray this fall, embracing the elegance and shine of monochrome shades. A gray hair color is ideal if you know how to combine whites, blacks, and grays in your wardrobe to create the perfect grayscale style. Alternatively, you can contrast your shining silver hair with brightly colored outfits to create a futuristic look.

Many hair blogs give tips on covering grays, but advice about how to go gray as a young woman is harder to find. In general, silver hair dye works most effectively on lighter shades of hair, such as blonde, light brown, or strawberry blonde hair. There are many shades of gray and silver, some of which shine like precious metals whereas others can be more subtle. Take the time to choose the hue that fits your personality.

FALL HAIR COLOR #2: PURPLE HAIR

Gray hair isn't everyone's cup of tea. Some people have an untameable love of color that they long to spread to every part of their attire. If you are part of this color-loving demographic, consider coloring your hair purple this fall.

When shopping for a purple hair dye, consider the shade you want carefully, including how it will look when combined with your favorite outfits. Adopting a purple hair color is sure to turn heads, but you don't want to be left with locks that clash with your entire wardrobe.

Purple hair dye comes in many different shades, from deep violet to a much more red-hued plum hair color. Consider whether you want to plunge in and go full purple, or whether you'd prefer to stick with a deep maroon hair color, which will put you on the redhead spectrum. Choose a burgundy hair color if you want just a touch of purple this fall. This shade can look very effective when combined with shades of brown in your outfit.

To get the look...try the L’Oréal Paris Colorista 1-Day Spray in Pastel Lavender (for a temporary look) or the L’Oréal Paris Feria in Smokey Lavender (for a long-lasting look).

FALL HAIR COLOR #3: BLUE HAIR

Perhaps the least natural of all hair colors, blue is the ideal choice if you want to make a bold statement. Beautiful on short or long hair, blue is the way to go if you're bored of your hair and want a complete image change.

Not all blue hair color brands are created equal. Whereas some simply give you black hair with a blueish tinge, others can create a pastel shade of baby blue when used according to the instructions. If you're keen to take on a cool blue ice queen look as summer fades away, check out the L'Oréal Paris Feria range of hair color products, which includes an eye-catching light blue shade. Note that you'll need to lighten your hair before applying this pastel blue hair dye if your hair is not currently light enough to allow the blue tint to show through.

To get the look...try the L’Oréal Paris Colorista 1-Day Spray in Blue (for a temporary look) or the L’Oréal Paris Feria in Smokey Blue (for a long-lasting look).

FALL HAIR COLOR #4: PINK HAIR

Girls who love everything pink can take on a modern, feminine look this fall. Although red hair is common, pastel pink has so far been less popular—but we’re predicting it won’t stay that way for very long. Get in on the trend before everyone else, applying a pastel pink dye to blonde hair to create a fun and feminine fall style.

If your hair is dark, you can still experiment with pastel styles. However, you will first need to lighten your hair so that the delicate blue or pink hue can show up. Use bleach to lighten your hair before using your chosen pastel hair dye.

To get the look...try the L’Oréal Paris Colorista 1-Day Spray in Hot Pink (for a temporary look) or the L’Oréal Paris Feria in Smokey Pink (for a long-lasting look).

FALL HAIR COLOR #5: PLATINUM BLONDE HAIR

The classic platinum hair color is back in style this season. Adopt a cool and chic look this fall by lightening your hair so that it reflects the last of the summer sunshine. Touch up your roots regularly to carry your platinum style through fall and into winter. When you get bored of being a platinum blonde, you can easily color over this shade with any color of your choice. Why not adopt a snowy platinum look for fall and winter, before splashing back into color to celebrate the coming of spring?

HOW TO TAKE CARE OF COLOR-TREATED HAIR

No matter which color you choose, your hair will require a little extra TLC to keep it looking its best. Here, we teach you what to do.

1. SWITCH OUT YOUR SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER (AND ADD A HAIR MASK)

Love your regular shampoo and conditioner? We guarantee you’ll love keeping your new hair color looking its best more. To do so, try the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Repair & Defend Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris EverPure Repair & Defend Conditioner, and use a hair mask, like the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Remedy Balm, once or twice a week to help maintain the integrity of your hair. You can also try a trendy hair sheet mask, like the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Deep Moisture Hair Sheet Mask and L’Oréal Paris EverPure Intense Repair Hair Sheet Mask for good measure.

2. LOWER THE HEAT IN THE SHOWER

Even if you’re using all the best hair care products for color-treated hair, if you’re washing in hot water, you could be doing your hair a disservice. That’s because hot water can strip your strands of essential oils, leaving your hair feeling dry and your color looking dull.

3. OPT FOR AN AIR-DRY

We get it—you love heat styling. The only issue is, all that heat can do a number on your hair. So, instead of creating beachy waves with a curling iron, try using the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Wave Swept Spray or L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Boost It Air-Blown Texture Mist. More of a sleek and shiny gal? Cut the high-heat straightener and reach for a bottle of the L’Oréal Paris Elnett Precious Oil Satin Hairspray. Not only can it help create the appearance of major shine, but the strong hold can help tame flyaways.
