Blonde. Rich beige and creamy blonde will take over this summer’s silvery tones. As we wear more charcoal in our fall wardrobe, adding a contrast in our blonde balayage brings warmth to our skin and brightens our eyes. Try some lowlights or toning your ashy blonde to a more creamy vanilla to break up the grey hues.

Bayalage. Caramel and honey tones applied in a balayage can brighten and soften your look with out the damage of the lighter, brighter blonde. Honey blondes compliment all skin tones and keeps your look fresh and soft for winter. Pair with a choppy long bob to be on the cutting edge of style this season.

Brunette. Rich, deep chocolates are always a fall/winter go to! These deep tones can be enhanced with gold, red or brown to bring out your natural brightness. If you’re tired of going lighter, why not try out Ashy Brown as an autumn alternative?
