The Autumn Hair Colours You Need to Know About

Autumn is the season of change, the season of letting go. For many, the turn of a new season can prompt a new mindset, a new wardrobe or, most importantly, a new hairdo. The summer months have drawn to a close; gone are the days of sun-kissed highlights and pastel pink nails. Instead, it’s time to mix things up with more romantic, sultry tones – you know the ones, we’re talking maroon reds and vibrant ambers.

So, what are the professionals saying and what are the autumn hair trends for 2019? Well, the general consensus among hair colourists is that natural hues are making a strong comeback (and thank god for that, because I don’t think our tresses could take much more bleaching). Alongside that, you can expect some copper tones with a refreshing twist.

We’ve collected a bunch of inspirational pics that showcase some of the best autumn hair colours. Whether you’re looking to dye your own ‘do or you're looking for a little something to show your hair stylist, we’ve got you covered for what’s hot this autumn.

1. Ombre Copper

Try and find us a more mesmerising hair video than this, we dare you. Hair stylist Steph Powell is showing us how it’s really done with her twist on the classic copper colour. Here, natural brunette tones are lightened up with copper-gold hues. The #hairenvy is real and this is a must-have autumn hair colour, right?

2. Natural Colours

We’ve always been told to embrace our natural hair colour, only to then be bombarded with images of platinum blonde and vibrant red-haired models. With social media showing us only the boldest, brightest and glossiest hair hues, it can be hard to love the tresses we were born with. But fear not! You can expect to see a lot more toned-down, natural shades gracing the pages of Vogue.

3. Blonde Colour Melting

Just when you’d got your head round what balayage was, another autumn hair trend comes out of the woodwork. 'Colour melting' derives from ombre hairstyles: it basically bleeds two colours into one, making it look a lot more natural in comparison to the classic ombre style. This particular colour melts into the natural hair tone, starting with darker roots reaching a lighter, cooler hue.

4. Rose Gold Balayage

Let's face it, rose gold isn’t going anywhere. It has made its way into our lives in the form of jewellery, interior decorations and now hair dye. This style primarily works best on lighter hair tones as the dye takes to blonde hues a lot better. If you do have a darker hair tone but want to rock this catwalk-ready look, lighten the tips of your hair before using a permanent or semi-permanent dye.
