There’s definitely never a bad time to switch up your hair color M.O. In fact, we highly support zhuzh-ing things up (either subtly or not so subtly) any day of the year regardless of the incoming season or the virality of certain trends. But if we had to choose our favorite time of year to experiment with something new in the hair color department, it would definitely be fall. After all, the temperatures change, our wardrobes change, and this year, specifically, our environments may change as we continue the transition to a relative degree of “normalcy.”
Just as we may switch up our nail game or makeup aesthetic in celebration of a new season, opting for a fresh new hair color for fall can be an invigorating way to trigger a newfound sense of self-confidence, to enhance a cozy wardrobe, or to simply nix an intense bout of post-summer beauty boredom. Following trends can sometimes feel a little passé in the beauty world, but we’ll always be interested in the looks reaching peak popularity. Whether you’re looking for just a little bit of something or you’re craving a full-on transformation, we asked some of the best hairstylists and colorists in the business to share the top ten trends we can expect to rule the hair color scene this fall.
