Haircolor Diaries: Your seasonal guide to haircolor, no matter your hue. Let’s take a look how you can get rid of that summer brassiness and transition your hair to deeper and richer tones as the weather begins to shift.

 

Blonde

As the weather starts to cool, it’s time to get cozy. Capture a lived-in look and subtly transition from lightest blonde to medium blonde by creating a root extension and staggering your low-lights to eye or cheekbone level.

While autumn inspires us to add spice to our favorite recipes, don’t forget to add some flavor to your locks!

Cool skin tones should gravitate toward nutmeg or brown sugar. Cinnamon or pumpkin spice are ideal for warm skin tones.

Consider giving the blow-dryer a break. Now that there’s less humidity in the air you may be able to stretch out your style for an extra day, saving your color-treated hair from unnecessary water and heat.

Brunette

The days are getting shorter and it’s time to take inspiration from the changing leaves. The hair color mantra for the fall is cinnamon, spice and tea would be nice’. Whether your skin tone is warm or cool, a change in tone for the fall season can work for you.

Warm skin tones are flattered by nuances of saffron, curry and paprika; cool skin tones enhanced by influences of clove, nutmeg and allspice. Consider adding these tones using an all-over gloss with a demi-permanent no ammonia formula to keep hair looking hydrated and shiny.

Detox your hair from the summer’s harsh sun and salt using a sulfate-free shampoo paired with a protein infusing conditioner.

 

Red

Don’t let the cool winds blow out your fiery locks. Face the oncoming winter head-on by choosing to add more depth and complexity to your red.

Flatter your freckles with rich auburn, warm rusty brown or chili spice. Cooler reds are complimented with deep cherry, and concord grape tones. Can’t decide on a favorite? A classic mahogany has both warm and cool reflects with hints of gold and violet.

Maintain your vibrant hue with a color conditioner that helps to nourish dry ends while revitalizing color-treated hair. Use as needed 1 to 2 times per week for a quick pick-me-up.
