Try a richer, darker color to match the changing seasons and fall wardrobe colors.
Fall is here and ‘tis the time for rich autumn colors to be in vogue—think deep chocolate brown, pumpkin orange and burgundy red.
In particular, brunette seems to be the color of choice in the fall. This comes as no surprise as 60% of the world’s population has this hair colour naturally, with many more natural blondes and redheads dying their hair to this hue. For fall, it also makes sense to wear a richer, darker colour to match the changing seasons and fall wardrobe colours. So, whether you are a natural brunette or not, check out these beautiful brunette hairstyles to get some inspiration!
Lea Michele looks beautiful here in long wavy brunette locks that are just perfect for the fall season. Lea’s base is a rich chestnut brown which has been highlighted with warm reddish-brown highlights for a high-gloss finish. This hair colour is perfect for women with a warm or tanned complexion and dark eyes, just like Lea. Her hairstyle shows off her colour flawlessly and is bang on trend this season too with the loose waves and eye-skimming fringe—a perfect fall hairstyle!
Halle Berry is working her short brunette pixie cut this season in a gorgeous chocolate brown shade that is the perfect match to her mocha skin tone and dark eyes. Halle’s base colour is a neutral brown with some subtle chestnut brown highlights throughout for some added dimension. This hair color will work well with most skin tones and eye colors, and looks especially good on short ‘dos like Halle’s.
Carmen Villalobos shows us how to rock espresso brown hair this season with her chic straight bob. Carmen’s color perfectly compliments her tanned complexion and dark brown eyes, making this a great colour option for women who also have dark and/or exotic features. Carmen’s geometric cut is another stand-out feature of this hairstyle and really shows off her glossy brunette colour.
If you want a subtler take on brunette hair this season, then check out Jillian Barberie’s sun kissed brown hair. This colour is a good option for women with tanned complexions and light or dark eyes, who still want a bit of a summery look throughout the winter and fall. To get this hair colour, start with a golden brown base and add some light brown caramel highlights throughout. Jillian’s highlights start from the roots here but for a subtler effect, try an ombre look instead where the mid-lengths and ends are only highlighted.
As you can see, there is a wide variety of brunette shades you can wear this season. From light caramel brown to deep, dark espresso brown, being a brunette has never been so fun and versatile! The general rule to remember is to choose something warmer if your skin tone is tanned or has golden undertones, or go for a cool brown if you have fair skin or pink undertones.
