- Caramel mochaIf you’re somebody that gravitates towards rich browns, this could be the hair colour for you. Caramel mocha hair was created by hairstyle Caitlin Dugan in Connecticut, who painted her client’s hair with a clay lightener to lift the hair for dimension. The result? A gorgeous chocolatey brown, with contrasting caramel strands weaved throughout the hair.
- Fiery copper-fiery, yet glamorous, copper hair is set to be everywhere this autumn. It’s the perfect option for those with dark or light hair and won’t require numerous visits to the salon.Copper dye is applied to give hair vibrancy, while subtle auburn low light add dimension.
- Nordic white Warm tones aren’t the only option during colder months. The Nordic white trend takes a very cool and icy shade of white all over the head to create one block of color. While it looks beautifully ethereal, be warned; it requires a lot of upkeep at the roots. As for the journey to Nordic white, you’ll need to attend a few sessions to lift the color slowly. Along the way, be vigilant with your hair care routine – bleach used during the process can be very damaging.
- Milk tea blonde The pattern for hair colors named after delicious trends isn’t dying down, as proven by the latest trend taking over Asia. The hashtag #milkteahair is growing on Instagram, and the pictures are as beautiful as you’d hope.Inspired by, well, milk tea and the way that the tea and milk combines, this trend is all about a soft ombre of warm browns focused on the roots and cool blondes on the ends.
- Mushroom blonde Yes, you read that correctly: a hair trend inspired by mushrooms.Mushroom blonde involves combining ashy blonde with darker undertones and subtle grey highlights to mimic the natural gradient of a mushroom.The hair color was a massive trend for the summer, so much so, Pinterest reported a staggering 308% rise in searches on its site. But thanks to its soft and warm tones, the hair color looks set to stay for autumn.The hair color was first created by Maryland-based hairstylist Yokasta Perez, who debuted her stylish creation on Instagram.

We approve.
