Colour Fads of the Fall – Brunette Edition
My last “Colour Fads of the Fall” blog was more directed to blondes but this week I want to focus on our autumn brunettes and red heads! Here are some of the more sultry, deeper hair colours on trend this fall!
Aubergine and plum shades are a classic fall colours that never really goes out of style. It is the perfect way to “umph” up your hair, especially if you’re a brunette and your hair is just looking a little drab. There are also so many different shades of this colour! If you want to tone down the violet, your stylist can always customize an aubergine colour specifically to suit your preferences. If you are thinking about doing a vibrant colour like this, I would strongly recommend investing in a good colour- protecting shampoo and conditioner! Any drug store shampoo normally has sulfates in it which promotes colour fading. Also, dear any blondes thinking about going this beautiful aubergine colour; please see your stylist!!! Don’t DIY it. I promise you it will not turn out the way you think it will and it will burn a hole in your pocket trying to fix it. Aubergine suits cool skin tones perfectly. If you have a warmer complexion, you may want to go for a darker version of this shade.
A shade perfect for all skin complexions! There are both warmer and cooler versions of this colour so the warmer mocha shades are perfect for warm complexions and the cooler shades work better to accentuate the pink undertone in your cool complexion. An easy way to figure out if your complexion is warm or cool is to look at your veins. If your veins appear to be more blue, it means you have a cool complexion. If your veins are more on the green side, you have a warm complexion. Adding some caramel balayaged pieces throughout this rich mocha concentrating around the face is the perfect combo for dimensional bliss!
Another fun, yet classy colour for fall. This shade is deep and rich like a full- bodied wine! It is the perfect blend of brown and red-violet hues. Much like the other shades, it can be modified according to your skin tone. My favourite look with this hair colour is a very dark red-brown/black shadowed root melting into a rich merlot. Absolutely beautiful look for fall!
PS: All of these hair colours look AMAZING with a dark red-burgundy lipstick and/or a smokey eye!
PPS: Always see your stylist for drastic hair changes! 😉
