What Color is In for Fall Hair?


Summer is on its way out, and that means it’s time for a hair color switch-up! If you thought your fall hair color choices were limited, you’d be glad to find out that’s not the case. There are many hair color choices to consider for the season, and we’ll share some of the best with you in this article. Keep reading to learn which colors are in for fall hair. 

Chocolate Brown All Over 

Few hair colors capture fall's relaxed and mysterious essence than chocolate brown. It’s an understated yet impactful hue that’s easy to maintain and works for virtually all skin tones. And if you want to take things up a notch and add some dimension, you can always add some lighter brown highlights to the mix.

Copper Balayage

Every year, it seems like copper returns for its time in the spotlight. We love it because it’s bright enough to evoke stares but natural enough to mesh well with the fall aesthetic. Whether you’re a natural brunette or a blonde, consider this color for some fiery fierceness this fall 2023. 

Fire Engine Red

Want to unleash your personality this fall? Throw caution to the wind and go fire engine red. Just be prepared for all the stares and attention you’ll be getting. And then there’s the maintenance involved: red hair color fades quicker than any other hair color. But there’s no denying the appeal of a bright red mane, regardless of the season. 

Pumpkin Spice

When fall rolls around, we all indulge in our pumpkin spice favorites: lattes, cookies, candles, and more. Why not celebrate the season with pumpkin spice hair? The shade is a medium muted orange with red and brown highlights and lowlights to add dimension and interest. Try this one out for the win. 

Soft Black 

Soft black hair is always “in.” The color is equal parts striking and natural, perfect for just about any skin tone, wardrobe, and personal style. If your hair is already dark, going soft black will add more depth and richness to your mane. 

Barbie Blonde 

Girls worldwide have fallen head over heels for the new Barbie movie. Because of this, we’ll likely see Barbie blonde hair everywhere this fall. The shade is a light blonde with very little tone variation - more of a solid blonde. If you want to channel your inner Barbie this fall, this hair color is the way to go. Just make sure your hair can handle the level of lightening you’ll need to achieve the look. 

Strawberry Blonde 

If you want a hair color shade that people of all skin tones will be rocking this fall, go strawberry blonde. It’s neither blonde nor strawberry red - it’s right in the middle. Most people with fair skin can rock this shade without a problem, but you’ll also find that people with medium or even dark skin can pull it off.

So, there you have it - there’s no exclusive fall hair color. There are several hues perfect for the season. We hope one of the shades we mentioned in this article appeals to you, and we wish you the best now and throughout the upcoming season.
