When it comes to darker richer tones for fall, think of dark reds, chocolate browns, toffee and caramel highlights. These are cozy colors, which is exactly what fall is about. Whether you are brunette or considering going brunette, the chocolate brown with a subtle blonde highlight in the front frame is perfect for a new season. If you have a dark brown base and would like to add some dimensions and textures to your hair, adding warm tones can create an illusion of richer waves and more volume.

2. Bronde Balayagetop-5-fall-hair-colors-for-2020

Looking for an effortless way to bring your summer bronze hair into fall? Bronde is a modern hair trend that infuses brunette and blonde together. Balayage is a quick change-up for fall or even special occasions. “Balayage” is a French word meaning “to sweep” or “to paint” resulting in the sweeping gradient color from darker roots to medium to lighter ends to allow for a sun-kissed natural look for your hair during the colder seasons. One of the reasons balayage is popular all year round is how relatively easy it is to maintain. You don’t have to worry about your roots and can just let them grow out throughout the seasons with this popular highlighting technique. Whether it is a waterfall braid or simply a French braid, any braided hairstyle with balayage highlights will always look stunning.

3. Pumpkin Spice Latte

Yes, pumpkin spice latte is more than just a Starbucks drink you can order. If you’ve been counting down the days until you can order a pumpkin spice latte, this is the hair color for you! Burgundy and rusty orange-red hues are typical for fall tones. This look is a stunning combination of auburn with copper tones that allows you to wear waves in an elegant way. With the warmth that radiates from the hair, this combination will draw out your eye color (especially blue or green eyes!) and stand out among the crowd. If you’re a redhead or brunette, give in to temptation and try out this beautiful new color.

4. Caramel Blondetop-5-fall-hair-colors-for-2020

One way to make your facial features stand out is to concentrate your coloring in the front frame. The caramel blonde is precisely what it sounds like – a dark blonde with copper highlights. Brunettes can easily pull off a heavy dose of blonde without having to touch up the roots. This flatters all skin tones and works well with dimensional highlights to liven up the cloudy days of the fall season. Whether you are wearing it sleek or making it curly or volumized, spray some Iles Formula Finishing Serum for enhanced dimension and vibrancy. Our Finishing Serum also protects color-treated hair against heated tools and UV rays. Plus, it provides color fade protection and humidity protection without weighing the hair down.

A good caramel blonde balayage will look like you just had a great summer! This hairstyle complements your features even more if you have deep complexions. But if you’re not ready to let your dark hair go wild all at once, add a touch of blonde to your front frame and you will instantly brighten up your entire look. Accentuate your facial features and keep that summer glow with this caramel blonde color.top-5-fall-hair-colors-for-2020

For any tone of warmth especially use the heat protection of Iles Formula Finishing Serum. Read our reviews and learn more about Iles Formula Finishing Serum here.
