Fall Hair Colors That Aren’t Super Predictable

With every changing season, I seem to also get the itch to change up my look. I know when we think of changing our hair for the fall, most of us tend to think that means only darker shades or cooling it on the balayage, but I don’t think as many rules apply anymore when it comes to beauty, so go ahead and get some hair inspo for the season!

Front Pieces

I love that this hair trend from the early 2000s is making a comeback but in a much more subtly chic way. These lightened pieces in the front would perfectly frame and add warmth to any face for the fall.

Can’t decide if you want to keep your blonde summer hair or dive in darker for the fall? You can keep both looks with the bronde hair trend. It’s the prettiest compromise for the season.

Pink Hair

The thing about fun hair color is you can do it whenever you want! The roots showing underneath gives this look a cool lived-in moody vibe that would match my binge-watching Halloween movies and wearing all black perfectly.

Chocolate Brown

What I love about this look is that the rich brown color is all over, not highlighted or with any root showing, which is a fun switch up from all of the perfectly blended styles we see all of the time.

“Pumpkin Spice”

You didn’t think we’d let you scroll through this post without a gorgeous warm orangey hue, would you? This is such a pretty unique tone and obviously perfect for fall.

Baby Highlights

The contrast of this dark base tone with tiny little hints of lighter tones at the tips adds just the amount of dimension to an already beautiful dark hair color. Perfect the look with this rich red lip.
