hair color trends The 15 Best Hair Colors To Try This Fall

The hottest hair colors for the cool weather.

Although the leaves (and the temperature) might not have fallen quite yet, Autumn is right around the corner. From the weather to our schedules to the colors of the leaves, fall is a season full of changes, which makes it the perfect time to switch up your beauty look. Whether you want to look stunning for back to school, going back to the office, or are simply ready to embrace some new fall trends, trying out a new fall hair color will help you start autumn in style. To help you on your fall hair color quest, we’re sharing 15 autumn-inspired hair color ideas to try in 2021. 


1. Rose Brown

Rose brown hair involves a brown base that has rose gold touches throughout. It’s a subtle, gorgeous way to switch up a brunette mane without going full-out rose gold. To get this rosy fall hue, ask your stylist to weave red, brown, and rose gold colors through your hair for the ultimate dimension. To create this look at home, use the L’Oréal Paris Colorista 1-Day Spray in Rose Gold. Start with a brunette base, then give yourself a sheer coat of rose gold for a colorful new fall look  — that washes out in one shampoo.


2. Sunflower Blonde

Holding on to those last bits of summer, this bright and sunny blonde hair color blends well into the rich fall shades. Try the L’Oréal Paris Excellence Créme Permanent Triple Protection Hair Color in Medium Golden Blonde to get the look at home.


3. Red Wine

As the weather cools down you may decide to switch from a chilled glass of rosé to a cozy glass of red wine. Embrace your inner sommelier at home or in the salon and try out a rich, red wine hair hue. This deep red hair color has touches of copper, chocolate brown, purple, and vibrant reds to create a beautifully blended red shade.


For a semi-permanent sip of this fall hair color use the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Semi-Permanent Hair in Maroon or the L’Oréal Paris L’Oréal Paris Féria Multi-Faceted Shimmering Permanent Hair Color Deep Burgundy for a permanent wine stained mane.

 

4. Warm Espresso

Since latte season is among us, channel the cup of java vibes with a warm espresso hair color. Featuring a mix of black and brown hues, this hair color will certainly heat up your coffee bean colored strands. Give it a try with the L’Oréal Paris Superior Preference Fade-Defying Shine Permanent Hair Color in Cool Darkest Brown or L’Oréal Paris Excellence Créme Permanent Triple Protection Hair Color in Dark Ash Brown.


5. Shimmering Silver 

Gunmetal, slate, or cool creamy dove—no matter what you call it, silver hair color will have you shimmering into the fall season. Whether you’re naturally salt and pepper or jumping in on the gray hair color trend, this metallic marvel looks great on all skin tones. If you’re a seasoned at-home dyer and want to go all the way (gray), use the L’Oréal Paris Féria Multi-Faceted Shimmering Permanent Hair Color in Silver. This at-home hair coloring kit is special because it delivers a super shiny, luminous hair color. Or give this look a quick spin with the L’Oréal Paris Hair Makeup Temporary 1-Day Hair Color Spray in Silver which will wash out in just one shampoo.


6. Bright Copper

Bright copper is a warm and rich tone that has a bit of a zing, like a copper penny. The color features a mix of blonde, golden copper hues, and auburn highlights to create a beautiful vibrant fall hair hue. Since copper hair color involves a range of expertly blended shades, we’d recommend heading to the salon. However, the L’Oréal Paris Excellence Créme Permanent Triple Protection Hair Color in Red Penny can give you the look at home.


7. Light Auburn

Let a vibrant and rich auburn shade bring your hair color to life this fall season. This gingery hue is versatile and incredibly flattering on various skin tones.  You can get the look at home using the L’Oréal Paris Excellence Créme Permanent Triple Protection Hair Color in Light Auburn. If you’re heading to the salon, ask your colorist to create some face-framing highlights using warm pigments of red to help showcase your features.


8.  Warm Cinnamon

This cinnamon hair color mixes red, buttery blonde, and crimson tones to create an overall warm hue that adds dimension and vibrancy to any base hair colors and highlights a variety of skin tones. Reach for the L’Oréal Paris Féria Multi-Faceted Shimmering Permanent Hair Color in Auburn Brown to try it out.

  

9. Honey Bronde

If you’re in the mood for a warm, golden hue, you may find that honey bronde hair is your perfect fall shade. Bronde hair is a fusion of blonde and brunette hues. This hair color is universally flattering since you can customize it (go blonder or browner) based on your skin tone and preference. Also, bronde requires fewer root touch-ups than lighter shades of blonde which makes it a great low-maintenance hair color change.

 

10. Vanilla Chai

Sorry pumpkin spice, make room for this beverage-inspired hair color this fall. Vanilla chai hair consists of dark roots that transition to a nearly white, cool blonde hue. If you’re interested in trying out this look, we suggest heading to the salon since it will require a professional to create the right blend of dark roots and lighter tones throughout.


11. Deep Blue 

If you’re going to change your hair, why not make a statement? While blue might not seem like the most vibrant of hair colors, this hue can look beautiful on all lengths and skin tones. Before you dive permanently into the deep blue hair color sea, test the water with the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Hair Makeup Temporary 1-Day Hair Color Spray in Blue. This temporary hair color spray washes out after one shampoo, so you can instantly get a bold fall hair color without a full season commitment.

 

12. Mushroom Blonde

The mushroom brown hair color trend is still a hot look this fall and if you’re blonde you can try it too. Mushroom blonde is a mix of ashy brown and blonde hues that creates a slightly lighter and brighter version of mushroom brown hair. Champion this trend at home by using L’Oréal Paris Superior Preference Fade-Defying Shine Permanent Hair Color in Medium Ash Blonde.

13. Red Velvet 

Red velvet hair color boasts a gorgeous blend of red, violet, burgundy, and maroon tones that come together for the ultimate level of dimension. This dessert-inspired shade can be customized to suit different undertones, making it a universal shade that everyone can rock. Get the delicious look using the L’Oréal Paris Féria Multi-Faceted Shimmering Permanent Hair Color in Intense Deep Auburn/Red Velvet.

 

14. Jet Black Hair

There’s no better way to score an intense, fall hair color than with jet black hair. This versatile ever-so-slightly bluish-black hue pairs well with all skin tones and can be a stunning look for the spooky season, too. Try the L’Oréal Paris Superior Preference Fade-Defying Shine Permanent Hair Color in Ultimate Black or L’Oréal Paris Féria Multi-Faceted Shimmering Hair Color in Bright Black to get the look at home.


15. Toffee Brown

A great fall hair color for brunettes, toffee brown offers a more dimensional color to your brown wefts. This shade has a dark ash brown base that’s lightened with medium and ash brown highlights throughout. The result is a hair color that rivals a tasty toffee caramel. Give this look a try by using the L’Oréal Paris Féria Multi-Faceted Shimmering Permanent Hair Color in Light Brown
