As summer goes cruising by and our beach highlights start looking drab, we’ve already started doing some hair scouting for fall. This summer has been all about taking hair color risks (hello, beta fish hair!) and perfectly pairing them with a cute and trendy cut. As we say so long to these long warm nights, we’re embracing a fresh, fun color for fall. Scroll on for your glossiest hair yet.
Babylights bring to mind those sun-kissed strands that enhanced your hair as a child. This subtle look can be achieved by combining thin, sliced highlights and hand-painted strands that focus on maintaining a glow around the face and mid-shaft through ends. Never underestimate the power of a few face-framing highlights, which create a soft, warm look against the skin. Lines of demarcation are not the goal here. This look would work for all ages and all types of clients, and requires little to no upkeep. Move over, ombré! (Photo via Andreas Rentz/Getty)
Hair goddess Blake Lively recently made the transition to this mixture of rich, golden blonde hues and delicious honey brown. It’s a shade that gives you the brightness of summer, yet still has a base color with depth. The undertones can range from ashy to golden, depending on your taste. Bronde is a very achievable color — all you have to do is choose a base color that is the most fitting, and then let the colors meld into lighter pieces around the face and ends.

What a magical shade, right? Rose gold can stand out or look completely natural with the right cut, making it a versatile look for fall. These pink copper tones are possible for dark or light hair, though lightening is usually required. When it comes to the rules for this shade, there are none! (Photo via Jason Merritt/Getty)
Rich Brunette With Caramel Highlights
This is a classic color, but an oh-so-good one! Envision a rich, chocolaty hue that has caramel kissed through the strands. It practically looks good enough to drink. When you’re searching for a base color to pair with caramel, stick to mocha and neutral tones, as going too cool can make your hair appear lifeless. (Photo via Anthony Harvey/Getty )
Here’s the sweet spot between red and brown. Multi-dimensional reds, coppers and golds combine to create a luxurious, rich red. It warms up any face immediately. This gorgeous color is one that ladies with darker skin tones can rock effortlessly. (Photo via Ian Gavan/Getty)
