Chocolate Copper! This gorgeous fall 2016 hair color trend pairs rich brown tones with ribbons of copper and soft glints of violet.

This is the perfect fall hair color for brunettes looking to embrace those warm, dimensional autumn tones without touching their natural base color. Of course, you can always create a deep chocolate base hair color by choosing either cool, dark chocolate or warm, milk chocolate shades – either way, you can’t go wrong with this color pairing!

 

Cafe Au Lait Hair Color Trend

That blend, though. Cafe Au Lait, this hair color term was coined by Hair Stylist, @meredithabloom and is reminiscent of the hot milk that softly blends into your favorite light or dark coffee base. This fall hair color trend is best achieved with your favorite balayage or handpainting technique and a cool combination of ash and violet colors. Both Summer and Meredith created these seamless looks with Oway Hbleach and toned with some Oway Hcolor – 11.17 (want the entire formula? Download our 2016 Fall Hair Color Formula Ebook)!

Channeling the earthy tones of terracotta clay, this fall hair color trend embraces warm, coppery hues. Another great fall hair color idea for brunettes who want to rock reddish tones without the upkeep that comes with more vibrant shades. Terracotta hair color is also quite versatile – colors can range from burnt orange to delicate peach, depending on your client’s desired hue or level. Both Kaila and Passang used Oway Hcolor’s .35 series to create these gorgeous looks.

Radiant Orchid Hair Color Trend

Quite possibly one of the most sought after hair colors for winter and fall 2016 – Radiant Orchid! This vibrant purple hair color blooms with absolute confidence that intrigues both the eyes and creative spirit. Notably, high fashion colors like Radiant Orchid can be prone to fading. We recommend a sulfate-free, organic color protection shampoo and using the least amount of hot tools as possible.

If you’re addicted to flat irons and curling wands, then be sure to use thermal heat protection products, as well. Another way to let low maintenance clients embrace Radiant Orchid hair color is to opt for soft, balayaged pieces instead of an all over color (seen right from Jessica Austin). While both interpretations of this fall hair color trend are absolutely stunning, one carries less maintenance than the other

Mulberry Hair Color Trend

If there’s one thing we know about 2016 fall hair color trends, it’s this – just about every shade of purple of is in! Mulberry hair color is slightly different than Radiant Orchid, as it’s deep, rich hues are both soulful and enchanting. Both Tyler and Bailey used Oway Hcolor’s 5.77 and 6.77 to create these stunning shades that will stay on trend well into winter 2017.

What better way to transition your summer blondes into a fall hair color trend that’s low maintenance, but also doesn’t make it difficult for them to go lighter in future months (as you know they will). Honey Bronze is the perfect blend of honey hues and bronze/bronde tones.
