Fall hair color trends with formulas

Fall hair color trends with formulas

There’s something about the changing seasons that makes clients eager to change up their look. Fall hair color trends have become a thing for exactly that reason. Typically named for autumnal treats like “pumpkin spice” or “caramel apple”, traditional fall colors are typically deeper and richer than shades that are popular in the warmer months.   To help you get ahead of the autumnal color curve this year, we’ve rounded up a few of our favorite fall color formulas from milk_shake colorists across North America.  fall-colors

Fall Copper Hair color

Copper hair is having a moment! While deeper ruby reds have traditionally been a go-to for fall, this year we are seeing a trend towards reds that are brighter and more orange. These three takes on copper should cover just about every client that comes in requesting this look.  Copper Look #1: https://www.instagram.com/reel/CjqESuGvA1N/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link  @ginastyles_4u  Gina used a foilayage technique at her client’s part: 8.43/CG & 8.3/G +10 Vol medium weave alternating foils with 7.4/C & 6.4/C + squirt of 6.6/R +5 Vol using a thin slice / weave. Her client had previous blonde highlights in between, which she left as-is. Finally, Gina used Lifestyling Amazing spray to finish and style  Copper Look #2: https://www.instagram.com/p/CjgbUnavWmq/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link  @latenighthair1  Used the GLOSS:, 35g of 6.4/C and 8g 6.6/R. Her client’s natural color is a match to a 7.3/G.  Copper #3: https://www.instagram.com/p/CjomOjIMCDc/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link  @hair.by.jordan.n  Jordan used equal parts milk_shake Creative Permanent Color 7.4/C and 6.16/AR + 10 Vol Oxidizing Emulsion over previous highlights. 

Fall blonde hair color

The traditional warm, butter blonde still reigns for fall. Those clients who went lighter and brighter in summer tend to tone things down a bit as the temperature drops. Lately we’ve been noticing a growing number of icy, wintery blonde requests being thrown into the mix.   Blonde Look #1: https://www.instagram.com/p/CiimAPaPBUw/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link  @hairbytlu_fringe  Tiffany used baby lights technique with Decologic Level 9 lightener. She pre-toned with Silver Shine Light Shampoo and then toned with The Gloss 9.03/NG (20g) 10.81/BA (20g) with (40g) GLOSS Activator.  Blonde Look #2: https://www.instagram.com/p/Cjc47CWLeFU/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link  @abbykeller_1006  Educator Abby used 1 oz. of 10NA Creative Permenent Color with 3 oz. of the 30 vol. Oxidizing Emulsion. She hand painted her client’s ends with Decologic Level 9 + 20 Vol Oxidizing Emulsion and for the base tone, Abby used Smoothies 9.07/NV 1 oz. To 1.5 oz Activating Emulsion. For the mid-length and ends mixed ¼ oz.10.13/AG, ½ oz. Silver, Pearl, and ¼ oz Lavender + 2.5 oz. Light Activating Emulsion.   Blonde look #3 : https://www.instagram.com/reel/CjsxsBYuY0x/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link  @hairbylauraelizabeth  Stylist Laura used the milkshake clay lightener to balayage and 7B+8V in the GLOSS to lowlight. To tone, she used 7BA in the 9 minutes colour to root melt and 10NV in Smoothies  on the ends  fall-color-before-after *before & after by @sabcatsim_hair

Fall Brunette hair color

There is nothing quite like deep, rich chocolate brown hair for the fall. Besides looking great, going darker for fall can be a great way to give damaged hair a bit of a boost. Color molecules from semi and demi permanent hair color work to fill in the gaps in hair strands, making it appear smoother and shinier. Here are a few milk_shake color favorites:  Brunette# 1: https://www.instagram.com/p/CjoGqCSAtyA/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link  @sabcatsim_hair  Sabcatsim used Creative Permanent color in 3.31/3GA + 10 Vol Oxidizing Emulsion.   Brunette Look #2: https://www.instagram.com/p/CjbJJBmL_NY/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link  @colorme_nichole  Nichole used Decologic Level 9 lightener + 40 Vol Oxidizing Emulsion and Creative color 7.44/CC (orange).  Contact your local sales rep to get milk_shake color in your salon!
