Like the changing of the leaves, we think autumn is the perfect time switch up your shade - and what better place to look for hair-inspo than nature? That’s right, this season is all about more au naturel hues with added shimmer, depth and volume. To achieve such a delicate balance between nature and gloss goals, you will need to enlist the help of a professional stylist - they’ll be sure to create you a perfectly bespoke hair colour that’s as nice as pumpkin spice. Read on to discover our picks for the three hottest hues of the season. 

Show Off Your Personality With Your Hair Colour 

We’re now post-summer and as always, it’s the optimal time to change the colour of your ‘do. We’ve hunted down three of the trendiest, nature-inspired autumn hair colours to splash upon your mane this autumn season. Ash, beige, and copper are making an unforgettable appearance this autumn and we’re already dying to call up our salon to make these of-the-moment hair colours our own. Paul Dennison, Expert Hair Stylist at Ken Picton Salons confirms that this autumn’s hair colours are all about “really enhancing the personality”. So, which one suits you best?

1. Cool Ash Brown

Brown ashy shades look flawlessly beautiful on fair skin with pink undertones, especially if you have light-coloured eyes (known to be emphasised by cool or neutral hair shades). We think this winning combo is a match made in hair heaven. A slightly darker ash brown suits almost all skin tones, and looks its best when glossy AF and cut into subtle layers to give depth. Ash blonde hair is also still a look set to stay hot in the winter sun!

2. Sandy Nude Beige

Now more than ever before we are seeing hair colours inspired by makeup trends and this one is no exception. Achieved through a pro-blend of both warm and cool blonde shades, nude beige is all the hype in Hollywood right now and hot for autumn hair. Like a barely-there mineral powder, nude beige flatters every complexion and can be customised darker or lighter to suit your skin and hair colour. Hello versatility, our old friend! 

3. Shimmering Copper

Ah, copper. A classic autumnal shade. This year is all about a light, natural-looking illuminated colours inspired by the elements. Your professional colourist can use techniques such as foilyage (using foils wrapped around sections of hair for a layering of hues) to give your copper a multi-dimensional shine that looks as pretty as the leaves falling from the trees. The pros tell us that copper-coloured hair suits those with a cool skin tone best, as the warm pigments contrast your natural colouring - time to glow up! More of a naturalista? Check out how you can enhance your natural copper tones using henna hair dye Botanéa by L’Oréal Professionnel.

How To Take Care Of Autumn Hair

Nature has blessed us with stunning hair colour inspo, but to assure your on-trend strands look vibrant, experts affirm the importance of a good hair care regime. Enter: Matrix Biolage Colorlast shampoo and conditioner, which use an ultra-gentle formula designed to keep your hair colour far away from lacklustre city. In addition, regular trims and a weekly hair mask will keep your new autumn colour going strong well into winter. 

Brass and dullness are no one’s friend when it comes to hair. The Kérastase Réflection Chromatique range kisses these concerns goodbye, and it gets personal: the Touche Chromatique, an ink-in-care hair dye that can be blended with Fondant Chromatique (conditioner) or Masque Chromatique (mask), allows you to touch up your bespoke colour.
