It pays to be patient when it comes to fall hair color. Even if it's been months since your last appointment, it's better to score your dream shade mid-September than regret lowlights in August. In fact, if you've been holding out until now, you're actually golden.
That's because the latest hair-color trends are all rooted in fresh tones applied as beautifully-blended balayage. That is, subtle, hand-painted color that requires minimal upkeep, is universally-flattering, and is particularly easy to infuse into grown-out summer highlights or on virgin hair.
From honey gold and cinnamon copper, to a creamy blonde and smoky cocoa, scroll through our slideshow to find the trending looks to ask for this fall. Spoiler alert: They're all so gorgeous, it'll be the push you need to finally go all in on sweater (er, cropped cardigan) season.
