It should come as no surprise that coppery reds - in hues just like the changing foliage - are in for fall, says Nikki Lee, a celebrity hairstylist and owner of Los Angeles hotspot salon Nine Zero
One. Brittany Snow's rich fiery hue fits the bill. To get her look for less, Lee recommends a box of Garnier Nutrisse ($7.99, garnierusa.com) for their "wide array of copper tones" worth trying. RELATED: These Are the Biggest Makeup Trends for Fall 2017
At the 2017 Tony Awards, Chrissy Teigen showed up with noticeably darker and glossier strands. But the subtle golden lowlights scattered throughout come from using a coloring technique known as painting, which requires free hand and brush work as opposed to meticulous foiling. In order to keep the lighter ends from showing any damage, seal in a blow-dry with a serum like Fekkai Blowout Sealing Serum ($20;
Always known for her daring color choices, Evan Rachel Wood is setting the trend again with her carefully colored section of jade-green hair, which is faded into her part with a bit of blonde for a more natural look. Worn down, tousled, and messy, the look is pure rock 'n' roll, but when braided and swept up, the gem-toned strands are actually incredibly elegant. Wanna try some color for one wash before committing to a season of it? Apply a wash-out dye, like Manic Panic Dye Hard Temporary Hair Color Styling Gel in Lizard Green ($9.99;
manicpanic.com), to a section of hair and French braid against the crown of your head for a similar effect to Wood's style.
Rihanna is ever the hair chameleon, changing her hair color and style almost constantly. For fall, Rihanna's one-dimensional, almost midnight-black strands have an unparalleled level of shine. To get that same look, use a clear gloss at home - whether you dye your strands regularly or not. Try John Frieda Luminous Color Glaze Clear Shine ($9.99;
ulta.com), which you can use in the shower in a few minutes flat. RELATED: 75 Cute Short Hairstyles - And How to Pull Them Off
Darkening hair for fall may be a common choice, but dip-dying the ends of hair with a lighter hue (Jenna's ends are like chocolate milk; the rest, dark chocolate) highlights and brightens the face. To keep color like this fresh, Lee suggests using a color-specific shampoo and conditioner, such the Reflection Bain Chromatique Sulfate-Free Shampoo ($41;
kerastasteusa.com) and the Reflection Fondant Chromatique Conditioner ($43; kerastaseusa.com). "It helps prolong your color and keeps it fresh between color appointments, especially during the summer," says Lee.
It seems like almost every celeb went the buzzed-and-platinum-blonde route in 2017, with Stewart in the company of Katy Perry, for example. But if going
that short and that light simultaneously feels like a lot to you, lighten up in phases. If you color too little, you can always add some more, but if there's too much bleach applied at once, well, there's a lot of room for breakage.
Honey lowlights are the perfect way for brunettes to transition their hair for fall - the warm undertones pick up the natural glow you've earned (with SPF, of course) and brighten up any complexion. The key is to work with the color you have and pick a complementary, low-lighting hue as opposed to picking the color of your painted strands first.

Overgrown roots are the kind of chic that's entirely effortless: Not only does it look low-maintenance, but it
is actually low-maintenance, requiring far less visits to the salon. The best part is that you can work with whatever hair color you want, and just kinda let it grow out - but work with a pro colorist to make sure it looks purposefully messy, as opposed to giving it a shot in your bathroom sink.
Jennifer Lopez is the ultimate example of a fine wine: She literally keeps getting more and more beautiful with age. Her latest hairstyle is proof - not only does the length work well for her, but the multi-tonal, dark blonde balayage
gives her olive complexion the most gorgeous, natural-looking golden glow, too.
If you're not feeling copper for fall, Lee is a fan of all reds, like Jessica Chastain's smooth strawberry blonde that has just the faintest shimmer to it.

Strategically placed auburn highlights give Priyanka Chopra's espresso-hued hair depth and definition - together, her strands practically emulate the colors of autumn. To make sure color stays safe through summer so it's ready for the fall, use a protective UV spray on strands, such as Macadamia Professional Endless Summer Sun Shield Dry Oil Veil ($20;
birchbox.com), which is not only free of damaging parabens and sulfates, but works on all textures to give extra shine any time, too.
You've probably never seen this shade of red before. Emma Roberts got her hair dyed by stylist
Nikki Lee at Nine Zero One Salon earlier this year, and the name? A very fitting "cayenne spice" that's a must-try this fall.
If you have pesky grays popping up, why not use them to your advantage? Model Jourdan Dunn definitely knows how to rock the slate gray look, and you can steal it for the cold months ahead. Just ask your stylist to blend the color so it smoothly transitions from darker on top to lighter on the bottom.
An easy way to switch up your style come fall is to try some caramel highlights (or, do a pretty ombré!). They add a flawless touch of warmth to darker colors - just like Shay Mitchell's! - that will look gorgeous all season long.
