The Best Fall Hair Color Trends to Try This Season


Fall is officially in full swing and, whether or not the leaves and temperature change near you, it's still the season for reinvention. One of the best ways to transform your look is with a new, autumn ready hair color. Whether you're looking for a subtle refresh or a complete hair makeover, these trending fall hair colors are the perfect inspiration for your next salon visit. From bold copper hair to a range of chocolate hues, find the shade perfect for you this season. 

Since every shade can appear differently on varying hair types and textures, we've rounded up multiple looks for each trending color—all created with a Redken Shades EQ Gloss service.

Natural Chocolates

This fall, indulge in a dreamy, chocolate shade. With the perfect balance of cool and rich, the natural chocolate color complements any skin tone and hair type. Try an all-over deep brunette look or add a touch of chocolate with a light balayage. No matter what you choose, this multidimensional chocolate is this season's must-have shade.


One of the most popular trends this year, copper colored hair is especially perfect for fall. While you can't go wrong with a classic auburn look, this warm and rich hue is a standout color among the red family this season. Copper features a range of tones, from deep reds to vibrant orange, that allow this color to pop on all hair types and textures.

Caramel Balayage

If you're looking for a gorgeous way to add dimension to your brunette hair, opt for Caramel Balayage. With this hair color technique, light and warm tones are beautifully incorporated on darker hair for a rich, multi-dimensional end result perfect for fall.

Balayage is an excellent choice if you're looking for a low-maintenance way to update your hair color this season. With the Balayage technique, hair color is blended with your root hair color to ensure a soft, natural grow out with no harsh lines of regrowth. Learn more about the Balayage hair color technique here
