With the leaves falling and the dark nights looming, Autumn has officially arrived, and a new season means a new shade. In need of some inspiration when finding your new colour for the colder months? Look no further. We've rounded up the hottest hues you need to try.


Bold brunette

Who says blondes have more fun? This season is seeing a shift towards darker colours and brunette is back in. Celebrating the versatility of this multi-dimensional shade, expect to see everything from deep mocha browns to warm chestnut hues.


Copper red

Red is the hair trend going absolutely nowhere. Mirroring the rich and vibrant hues of autumn leaves, cooper is blazing to the top this season. If you want to try the fiery look first before comitting, try the Moroccanoil Color Depositing Mask in Copper, a nourishing and easy-to-apply formula that washes out in a couple of weeks.


Red brown

Can't decide between brunette or red? Do both. We're predicting rich and warm browns, laced with hot crimson tones and cherry hues. Go for a subtle tint of colour with the Christophe Robin Mask in Warm Chestnut, or turn up the heat with the SHRINE Drop It Hair Colourant in red Red.


Caramel blonde

Bringing some warmth to the winter months, we're opting for more caramel and golden shades of blonde this season. Use the SHRINE Drop It Caramel Blonde Toner drops to add a honeyed hue to bleached, light and dark blonde without adding unwanted brassy tones. Or try a toffee tone temporarily with the nourishing, semi-permanent Wella Professionals Color Fresh Semi-Permanent Colour Mask in shade Golden Gloss.


Dark roots

Enhancing natural grow out with a deeper root effect, this season we're smudging out our roots to create a shadowed appearance. Adding dimension to your mane, this look allows for multi-dimensional colour with a more natural-looking finish. The L’Oréal Paris Magic Retouch Temporary Instant Root Concealer Spray comes in a variety of shades for you to pick your level of contrast to your lengths and easily sprays onto the hair, blending into the roots.
