7 Drool-Worthy Autumn Hair-Colour Trends That Look Even Better Than They Sound
If banana bread had a publicist (and what a good publicist she'd be during these trying times), you can picture her trembling at this autumn's upcoming hair-colour trends — or at least inviting them out for brunch. Frankly, they sound downright delicious.
From "Champagne pop" to "espresso black," clearly these hues take inspiration from the best things in life around you. They're also designed for easy upkeep: "My current recommendation to any client would be a low-maintenance hair colour, which means switching from permanent colours to demi- or semipermanent colour, or balayage," Karissa Schaudt, a colourist at Maxine Salon in Chicago, told POPSUGAR. "These are created to have a seamless grow-out and require minimal upkeep — especially during a pandemic, when touchups aren't as scheduled."
Most importantly, added colourist Rex Jimieson: "This year, we want our colour to transition gracefully into autumn by staying away from overly cool or artificial colours. They are the hardest to wear as we lose our summer glow in our skin. I would stay away from blue-based dyes especially such as grey or extrastrong ash tones. They are great for editorial moments with the right makeup lighting and editing but are very fade resistant and harder to wear against natural skin with no makeup."
For the most mouthwatering hair colours that are somehow — some way! — even better than they sound, keep reading. We're breaking down the seven biggest colour trends to try in the coming months.
