Keen to update your look? Read on for plenty of autumn hair inspiration for this year.
We love autumn! Boots, tights, statement knitwear - there’s just so much more to have fun with. Autumn hair colours are another great way to embrace the season.
Perhaps the falling leaves have got you thinking about going red, or the darker evenings have you lusting after shiny brunette shades... or maybe you're simply looking for inspiration on which colour to try next! Luckily, we've put together a round-up of stunning autumn hair colours for blondes, brunettes and redheads to help you make up your mind.
Autumn blonde hair colours
Honey blonde hair
Honey blonde locks are rich and intense - not to mention they look great with practically all skin tones! Blending dark and warm blonde shades together with a hint of light brown, honey blonde is a dreamy autumn hair colour.
Another great thing about honey blonde hair is that you can choose from a wide range of shades - from dark to light and caramel. To find the shade that works for you, have a dig around in magazines for inspiration and ask your colourist for their advice on the best hue for your skin tone.
Once you've created your chosen colour, keep your blonde looking beautiful with our Violet Crush product range.
Mushroom blonde hair
A descendent of ashy blonde, this autumn hair colour is particularly popular at the moment. It merges blonde and ashy tones to create a cool, multi-tonal look that's perfect for blondes wanting to go a little darker or brunettes hoping to lighten up their locks.
To achieve mushroom blonde hair, visit your colourist who can advise on the right ashy shades for your skin tone and eye colour. If you're naturally brunette, your hair will need to be lifted up to one to two levels lighter, with ashy pigments toned in on top; if you're blonde, the base is a lot easier to work with and colour can be applied directly.
Sun-kissed blonde hair
Summer may be over, but holiday season isn’t! For hair that says you’ve just come back from somewhere hot and exotic, try a hair lightening spray. Go Blonder Controlled Lightening Spray brightens blonde hues by up to two shades and is effortless to use.
If you fancy something a little more permanent, add highlights or balayage to your locks to give them a subtle, summer feel. Afterwards, keep your hair colour looking its best with our Sheer Blonde Highlight Activating Moisturising Shampoo and Conditioner.
Autumn brown hair colours
Brown hair really matches the autumn feel. We've picked out three of our favourite autumn brown hair hues (chestnut, cinnamon and gingerbread caramel) but you can find even more shades within our round-up of beautiful brown hair colours.
Chestnut hair colour
Chestnut is one of the most popular brunette shades because it suits most complexions. Combining bold, warm reds and natural brown, chestnut hair colour is stunningly rich, adding warmth and dimension without being too dramatic.
One of the more natural autumn hair colours, chestnut hair is a firm favourite and easily maintained at home with Brilliant Brunette Visibly Deeper Colour Deepening Shampoo and Conditioner.
Cinnamon hair colour
If you're looking for something lighter than chestnut, cinnamon hair colour could be the perfect option for you. Ranging from medium to dark shades, it's another way to incorporate warm red tones into your look.
Like the spice it was named after, this dimensional autumn hair colour is characterised by soft ginger highlights, merged with browns and reds. It can be as bold or understated as you like - that's the beauty of cinnamon hair!
Post-colouring, make sure to give your locks the salon-worthy treatment from home to keep the colour in great condition.
Gingerbread caramel hair
Ever the festive hair colour, gingerbread caramel hair is trending big time at the moment. Characterised by soft caramel highlights and orangey hues, this colour trend will give your locks depth and warmth, perfect for the colder months and festive season approaching.
For a more subtle approach, you don't have to opt for all-over colour; some people keep the roots looking natural while adding a splash of colour to the ends or around the face. The great thing about gingerbread caramel hair is that it'll add a glow and rosiness to your skin too.
Apply our Brilliant Brunette Colour Protecting Shampoo and Conditioner to ensure the colour stays bright and vibrant!
Autumn reds to inspire you
This level of vibrancy takes some maintenance, but the head-turning red for autumn is 100% worth it. We've picked out two trending shades below and you can discover more with our selection of 10 radiant red hair colours.
Mahogany red hair
Similar to wine and burgundy hair colours, mahogany blends brown with red, giving it a subtle violet hue. It's the perfect shade for the colder months and festive season and can be both warm and cool depending on your tastes. This makes it a versatile colour and flattering on practically any skin tone!
Create this rich and deep look with our Precision Foam Colour Deep Cherry Brown Hair Colour and keep it maintained with Intense After-Colour Conditioner.
Red velvet hair
If you're keen to really brighten up your locks this autumn and go for a stand-out colour, red velvet hair certainly fits the bill. It's as lovely and rich as the dessert it's named after - and is quickly becoming a popular hair colour trend for 2020.
Get this vibrant look with the help of a colourist and keep up the intensity with our Radiant Red Boosting Shampoo and Conditioner to recharge your colour with every wash so it looks brighter for longer.
All of these looks are easily achievable with our Precision Foam Colour product range, available in a variety of shades for blondes, brunettes and redheads. We've also put together a first-time dyers guide to help you dye your hair at home if you can't get to the salon.
