The gorgeous yellow, red and brown Autumn colours, inspire us to use similar warm hues as hair colours. Golden blonde, hazelnut brown and coppery reds are the preferred hair colours as it gets colder.

  • We associate certain colours with Autumn because they are part of the spectacular colour change in nature when the lush green leaves turn yellow or red and then brown. The palette of natural Autumn colours includes faint yellow, hazelnut, reddish-brown, coppery and crimson tones.

  • Warm Hair Colours and Two-Tone Hair

    Cool brown shades remain popular in Autumn and Winter. However, the glowing colours of Autumn inspire many to change to warmer hair colours. People tend to change their hair colour to complement the change in seasons.

    Colour transitions seen in the colour change in leaves have influenced the current two-tone hair fashion. The dip dye look can use different Autumn colour shades, to create a playful look.  

  • Warm Hair Colours for Pale Complexions

    The colours of Autumn radiate warmth  and women with pale complexions can take advantage of this. In the Autumn and Winter seasons, when the sun is less intense and the days are shorter, Autumn colours add a vibrant glow to your appearance.   

  • Best Combination of Warm Autumn Colours and Hairstyles

    Simple and casual hairstyles work well if you have warm coloured hair as it emphasises the colour and shading. For a simple but sophisticated look you may like to comb your hair back off your face using hair wax to keep it in place. Loose braids or improvised braided hair elements also work well.

    The models hair in our photo gallery glow like the colourful hues of Autumn.
