Cool Hair Color Trends For Autumn 2016
Riverside, Airy Blue and Sharkskin from the Pantone Color Palette are the cooler tones. In addition, we are still seeing a trend in Silver, stone, and washed out variations of blue hair color making a big impact for fall. These tones are great for very light blondes who want to take away the brightness for fall/winter. A Semi or Demi permanent option means no commitment, and your color will gradually wash away with each shampoo, allowing you to go back to your light blonde for spring and summer if you choose. Take a look at some of these cooler hair color options.

In Contrast, the warmer tones from the Pantone Color Palette are Spicy Mustard, Aurora Red, Potter's Clay, and Dusty Cedar. Each of these tones, can be created as an all over color tone, or created using Baby Lights or Balayage Techniques. Are you blonde or lighter? Use any of these tones in the same method as the cooler tones above. Are you currently wearing medium or darker hair? Perhaps a kiss of these colors strategically placed could be enough of a change for fall. Here are some inspiration images that may just be what you are looking for.
Neutral and Darker Hair Color Trends For Autumn 2016

Most often, a neutral/cool toner will be the perfect recipe for achieving this, providing a semi permanent result, which will wash out in time for spring. If your medium to dark brown, think cooler and more rich flavors of brown and black. Below are some inspirations that may entice you to make a switch for fall.
