Autumn is officially here—and if you’re like us, you could very well be thinking of changing up your hair color in addition to your wardrobe. Instead of making the typical seasonal transition to a darker hair color for cooler months, why not take a little inspiration from 2017’s top beauty trends and embrace a rainbow shade or two? Below, we’re sharing eight standout rainbow hair color ideas to inspire you for fall.
Keep in mind that in order for rainbow shades to show up on your hair, you’ll need to bleach your hair first—and the darker your base shade, the more work (and bleaching) it may take to reach your desired hair color. And while some of these looks can be created at home, others are more intricate—meaning they’re best left to the pros.
Crystal hair color hues are trending at the moment, and moonstone hair is a version of hidden rainbow hair. On the outside, instead of a blonde or brown, you’ll sport a silver, near-white hue that conceals a handful of rainbow colors beneath the top layer.
If you’ve scrolled through your social media feeds recently, then you’re probably well aware of how popular teal hair continues to be. The oceanic hue can be brightened for summer and darkened for fall, making it the perfect hue for your autumn hair debut.

Mauve is a dusty pink color that is popping up just about everywhere these days. As rose gold hair’s cousin, mauve hair is a bit ashier, while remaining light. The ashy tones make this the perfect rainbow hair color pick for those with cool undertones.
This hair color embraces a series of gemstone colors placed throughout brown hair. Gemstone hologram hair is known for the way it’s both bright and reflective while remaining true to fall’s darker hues.
Oh, so very edgy of you! Blue smoke, a navy/ash hybrid, is a gorgeous smoky hue that can add a certain coolness to your autumn look.

If one of your favorite parts about fall is the way the leaves gorgeously change color, then consider transforming your hair into a beautiful tangerine shade reminiscent of autumn leaves, pumpkins, and all things fall.

Here’s the scene: You’re walking to your car, only to get mesmerized by the dark puddle of oil you have to step over. As you make your way over it, you notice how the shades begin to change, revealing a gorgeous mermaid-like rainbow of colors. Now picture that same effect on your hair. Like moonstone hair, oil slick hair is all about having a solid surface hue with rainbow tints hidden beneath it. Most often the outer color will be somewhere along the spectrum of blue smoke to ashy black, with bright rainbow colors on the underside.
Last but not least, if you want to embrace an earthy tone for autumn but aren’t ready to part ways with your light hair, consider a head full of sage strands for a one-of-a-kind light, earthy green. So pretty!
After you’ve picked out your rainbow hair color and dyed your hair, it’s time to make a few changes to your hair care routine. Switch to a system of shampoo, conditioner, and hair mask formulated for color-treated hair.
