Fall auburn/red hair

If there is one hair color that can take you seamlessly from summer to fall, it would be ravishing reds. From burnished summer sunsets to blazing fall bonfires, red hair captures the essence of both seasons. And what could be more fun than ending summer as a spicy redhead? Let’s take a look at what’s hot for red hair right now.

New to Red
If you’re considering red hair for the first time, you may feel a bit apprehensive of the change. The paler red of coral copper may be the right choice for you. It’s a soft feminine shade that will help you ease into the realm of red hair.


Brunettes often worry about transitioning to red hair for fear of damage due to the lightening process. The good news is that there are several shades that allow brunettes to go red without all the bleaching. Mulled wine is a dark purplish-red that pairs perfectly with cooler skin tones. And a neutral copper will give a rich, silky warmth to darker hair.


Blondes who love red but aren’t ready to give up their golden strands will love a golden strawberry blonde with butter blonde highlights. It will give you the best of both worlds. For a more daring color go for a dazzling red to blonde ombre.

Natural Reds

If you are a natural redhead looking to spice things up, try a cinnamon caramel balayage. The cinnamon warms things up while the caramel swirls add depth and dimension. If you love your natural color but want a trendy update, add some chunky platinum blonde highlights around your face for an instant refresh.
