Top autumn hair colour trends

August 5, 2013

I’m sorry to put a dampener on the summer but autumn is on its way and that means it’s time to look at your beauty regime and one thing to look out for is the latest hair colour trends. Autumn and winter are the perfect times to change your hair and a new colour will help disguise any damage that summer may have wrecked on it. So what hair colours should you consider this autumn? Here is our guide to autumn hair colour trends.




Darkness rules

If you look through any magazine at the moment you will notice that dark hair is very much in Vogue right now. Model after model was spotted with raven hair – supermodel Kate Moss even had black hair for the Louis Vuitton show. While Victoria Secrets model Candice Swanpool has abandoned her usual blonde look for a slick dark look. However, while it looks like they are sporting true black hair in fact it is actually a lot more wearable than that as the models were wearing a blackened brown colour which is a lot easier to pull off then black hair. However, it is worth noting that you will have to change your makeup to suit the new colour.


It looks like the two-tone ombre look is not set to go anywhere as it is still a popular look so why have one hair colour when you can have two? The ombre look is a quite subtle and wearable (there is no worries about obvious roots as that is the point). What’s more it was a big look on the autumn/winter catwalks with Alexander Wang sending models down the runway with two-tone hair with darker roots and lighter ends.

Unusual colours


If you are feeling brave you could take inspiration from the Givenchy catwalk where the models wore their hair in pin curls which were then spray painted in vibrant pinks and blues. And it wasn’t just at Givenchy – Haider Ackermann saw models with dip dyed Mohicans with colours such as white at the tips.While the Givenchy and Haider Ackermann look is probably somewhat extreme the coloured hair trend is not set to go away with the likes of Katy Perry, Fearne Cotton and Kelly Osbourne showing how good coloured hues can look.


Blondes are still having fun


That said it doesn’t mean that blonde is not a good colour for autumn/winter in fact blonde hair is not going anywhere just make sure it matches your skin tone. As it is it is winter it is a good idea to go for a warmer tone as you won’t have the tan you do in summer and will want to be slightly darker blonde.
