Sweet September! My favorite time of the year is finally here. The time when nature turns magical and mysterious, and slowly fades into a night of long 'beauty sleep'. With the changing weather, our style, mood, and overall inner feel change as well. 

So, to put together the mood, style, and personality in one order and meet the new season in all its breathtaking beauty, I propose you experiment with brand-new, soul-stirring fall hair color. What is it going to be? Burgundy red like wine, warm and cozy like chestnut, or sweet and soft as a freshly brewed latte? You are the one to decide.

  • #1. Burgundy Wine Hair Color

The intense, haunting shade of burgundy me is the essence of the fall season. I love wearing it on my nails, lips, and eyes and incorporating it into my outfit. Burgundy combines the best of purple and red colors in one dark and charming shade. But, despite looking so dramatic and non-trivial, the burgundy shade is pretty versatile and can be worn with no extra effort. No matter what is your skin color or undertone, burgundy will brighten up your best features.

  • #2. Mushroom Brown Hair Color

Foggy and wet fall weather makes it an ideal season for mushrooms, so why don't we all use the purplish-brown colors of mushrooms' heads as an inspiration for the fall hair color? Of course, it won't be easy to reach the desired results – professional hair colorists say it is one of the hardest shades to achieve (together with plain gray and platinum blond). But the final mushroomy result is so worth the effort.

  • #3. Rustic Red Hair Color

When I think of red hair the medieval, rustic red is the first color that comes to my mind.  It is simply ideal for fall time when nature turns every little leaf on the tree into this legendary shade of red. Just imagine having long, wavy rustic red hair. I imagine a young lady, wearing her long, wavy locks in a loose braid. 

She wears a shamrock green velvet dress and slowly walks on the horse through the ancient and dark forest. This forest from my little fall fantasy is situated somewhere in Ireland, but the closest park in your megapolis and a slow walk on your two sounds just as romantic.

  • #4. Pumpkin Spice Hair Color

Pumpkin spice hair is for those, who like it hot during the cold period of the year. Spicy and warming, just like the taste of actual pumpkin spice, this trendy hair color isn't easy to cope with. If your natural hair is black or dark brown, you must prepare it for the pumpkin spice shade by bleaching it. 

You may need to bleach it even more than once. But, after you tone your hair or color it with a permanent pumpkin spice color, you will only go back to your natural roots for a short time. Some say ginger hair is addictive.

  • #5. Caffe Latte Hair Color

Of course, when it comes to fall hair colors, we think of something dark and intense, in the red and orange color range. Yet, there are many light hair colors, which will suit the chilly fall months. For example, one of my favorite medium blond shades with a cool undertone reminds me of a cafe latte (no lactose, please!). 

This soul-stirring hue is so much easier to achieve and maintain, unlike the icy-cold platinum blonde. So you won't need to worry about the health of your hair. It is not intense and bright, but more on the neutral side of the color spectrum.

  • #6. Chestnut Brown Hair Color

Chestnut brown hair color (or castaneous hair) combines characteristics of both brown and auburn hair. It looks both natural and intense and is named after the nut that comes from a chestnut tree. If you are looking for ways to intensify your natural locks, consider giving it a nice, warm twist with the help of this amazing shade of brown. And don't forget to follow these hair care tips, they will keep your hair shiny and healthy through the colder seasons.

  • #7. Sweet Caramel Hair Color

The next trendy hair color for fall combines the best of both worlds in one charming color symphony. I'm talking about the sweet and warm caramel shade. Caramel is a warm hair color, somewhere in the middle between the brunette and blonde range. It is perfect in those cases when you aren't ready to go far with your hair color transformation and feel slightly warm-up your natural color by adding some rose-gold hues.
